The head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, blasts Ben & Jerry’s for ending its sales in areas claimed by the Palestinians for their future state.
“The residents of Samaria [West Bank] and this land will stand strong long after Ben & Jerry’s ice cream melts and disappears from the world,” says Dagan in a statement. “We won’t give in to this antisemitism, which has permeated American Jewry.”
The settler leader urges Israelis to buy locally produced ice cream.
The founders of the iconic ice cream brand are Jewish.
