Israel’s Ambassador to the US and UN Gilad Erdan sends letters to the governors of 35 American states that have anti-BDS laws, asking them to throw the book at Ben & Jerry’s for ending sales in West Bank settlements and East Jerusalem.
“I urged them to act against Ben & Jerry’s decision to not sell its products in the eastern part of Jerusalem and Judea & Samaria. We will make clear to Ben & Jerry’s that its antisemitic decision will have consequences,” he tweets.
On Monday, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid vowed to ask the American states to take legal action against the ice cream company.
