The Yesha Council responded to Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop servicing Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
“Unfortunately, Ben & Jerry’s has decided to boycott Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley and as a result force hundreds of Israeli employees in the south of the country to lose their jobs. [We urge you to avoid doing business with companies boycotting hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens and offer our support for those companies who have refused to boycott a significant portion of Israelis.] We hope Ben & Jerry’s goes back on its discriminatory ruling, which makes such a sweet field look so bad,” it said in a statement.
“On hot summer days, we recommend that Israelis all over the country eat delicious, sweet Israeli-made ice creams, which don’t support laying off hundreds of Israeli employees,” it added.
