Ben & Jerry’s To End Ice Cream Sales In ‘Occupied Palestinian Territory’

The Ben & Jerry’s ice cream giant announces it will no longer distribute its products in the “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” though the flavors will remain available in Israel.

“We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners.

“We have a longstanding partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region. We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.”

The company did not say what it considers “Occupied Palestinian Territory.”

  1. Remember when the company “Soda Stream” pulled out of the “west bank”?
    Dozens of Palestinians lost their well-paying jobs, in order to “protect their rights”.

    Yup, it all makes sense…

  2. It is inconsistent with my values to buy Ben & Jerry’s ice cream anywhere.

    Boruch Hashem there are many other brands of ice cream both in Israel and the US. No need to buy the brand that comes with a side of politics

  3. Who needs their garbage? Let them take their junk to their arab hubs. And for that, we ought start a big, huge boycott of Ben & Jerry’s. Wherever it’s sold walk out and go to the next store. Let the vendors understand we won’t buy in their store because they carry Ben & Jerry’s.

  4. While we don’t buy more than a container or two of Ben & Jerry’s per year (we’re not makpid on cholov yisroel), bli neder that number will now drop to zero. What a nerve these ice-cream vendors have, deciding that territory Jews lived in before 1948, were evicted from between 1948-1967, and now is once again in the hands of Jews belongs completely to “Palestinians” (Arabs) simply because Jordan successfully conquered and occupied it for nineteen years! I hope enough Israelis boycott B&J that they close up shop and leave Israel entirely – how dare they decide to endorse the anti-Israel narrative in its entirety and “punish” Israel.

  5. I never purchased any ben and jerry garbage ice cream. I wouldn’t have purchased anything from these ousvorfs years ago when they started their left-wing looney rants about social issues. They should go out of business. They’re commies.

  6. Who would want to eat any of these mishgav zachors ice cream anyway? The only time I’ve ever tasted any of their ice cream is when I went on a tour of their factory in Waterbury Vermont, about 20 years ago. They give out these samples at the end (it has a hechsher) of the tour. I was unimpressed and never purchased any of their ice creams. Breyers is much much better. Turkey Hill is also not bad.

  7. Congratulations Aron’s Kisena Farms for removing all Ben & Jerry’s products from his stores! We support Aron’s! Way to go! Chaveirim Kol Yisrael.

  8. Ok. What do you think? I can add some fat pounds the Ben and Jerry can do or not. But the ice cream is so bad that they are doing the national service of keeping a muslim fit. Who will eat this is crazy.

  9. BOYCOTT THEM IN ISRAEL AND EVERYWHERE. TAKE AWAY THEIR KASHRUS CERTIFICATION. ANYONE WHO EATS THEIR ICE CREAM IS SHEDDING JEWISH BLOOD. THEIR BOYCOTT ENCOURAGES ARABS TO MURDER JEWS.
