Meretz MK: Ben & Jerry’s decision a result of settlement expansion, land grabs

A left-wing Meretz lawmaker blames Israel’s settlement expansion for Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop selling ice cream in areas claimed by the Palestinians for their future state.

“Ben & Jerry’s is not boycotting Israel, but rather the settlements. You may not like it, but this is the price of settlement expansion, land grabs, and the blurring of the Green Line,” tweets MK Michal Rozin.

The ice cream company said it would stop sales in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” without specifying which areas it views as such.
