Foreign Minister Yair Lapid condemns Ben & Jerry’s over their decision to end ice cream sales in so-called “Occupied Palestinian Territory.”
“Ben & Jerry’s decision is a disgraceful capitulation to antisemitism, to BDS [the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel], to all that is evil in the anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish discourse,” says Lapid. “We won’t be silent.”
The foreign minister says he will ask the over 30 US states to implement their anti-BDS laws against Ben & Jerry’s in retaliation. The laws requires states to divest from companies that boycott Israel.
