LOL, this doesn't even fit with BDS. BDS would want them to stop selling in Israel altogether, this only says they stop selling in "occupied" territories. Plus, they have to still finish their current agreement, which sells everywhere, and then find a franchisee who will go along with the plan and not sell in occupied territories, which isn't going to be easy.

@jj1000 Perhaps merge the discussion from the Tweets thread.

Where in the statement is the word Apartheid?

Calling parts of Israel OPT is promoting the Israeli apartheid lie.

Changed it back to my original headline based on this article

That article is Fake News as well. B&J doesn't mention BDS, and states clearly it will continue to sell in Israel
LOL, this doesn't even fit with BDS. BDS would want them to stop selling in Israel altogether, this only says they stop selling in "occupied" territories.

Is Ben&Jerry's that's old in Israel made locally? If so, it's made with cholov yisroel milk.
If not, is it cholov yisroel in Israel?


Apparently  so.  From the article linked to in the post above this one:

Ben & Jerry's ice cream in Israel is produced by an Israeli company, also named Ben & Jerry's, which is licensed to produce the sweet dessert. This Israeli company, which operates out of Beer Tuvia, is not boycotting any part of Israel. Their license only expires at the end of 2022.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says Ben & Jerry抯 decision to stop selling ice cream in the so-called 揙ccupied Palestinian Territory is a mistake. 揃en & Jerry抯 decided to brand itself as anti-Israel ice cream, says Bennett. 揟his is a moral mistake and I believe it will turn out to be a business mistake as well.

They don抰 care. Go through their twitter account. They抮e anti-police, pro-BLM, pro-drugs, pushing liberal candidates. Not sure where ice cream fits in.

They're famously Progressive activists who want to actually impact the world and not just make money. It's quite an inspiring story. Unfortunately, they stopped reading at "lesaken olam".
