Ben And Jerry’s Ends Nutty Boycott Of Israel, Leftism Bites It

Ben & Jerry’s will continue to sell its products in Israel and the West Bank, its parent company announced Wednesday, reversing the ice cream company’s year-long boycott.

It has only been one year since the ice cream makers of excellent ice cream and disgusting leftist social justice decided to make a splash by punishing Israel, one of America’s greatest and historic allies, by refusing to sell their product to Jews.

The idea was so distasteful, to deny people a product just to promote a social justice agenda- that the parent company-who wanted to pay their bills- ended the stupid idea today.

Ice cream and bullying just do not blend well- no matter how much sugar you pour over the top.

First, a little background-Here is what happened, as I covered one year ago:

The leftist love for antisemitic people, places, and things who hate Jews and Israel has taken on a new flavor this week, as radical Community Organizers and Ice Cream pushers, Ben and Jerry, make a high profile and anti-American splash in the news by withdrawing their product from Israel.
Key Point: Ben & Jerry’s threw their support behind Defund the Police in 2019 in an ongoing company focus on radical Marxism and push to overthrow the United States Republic.

Ben and Jerry, who often proclaim to be hippies and peace lovers, have a long stand against the Judeo-Christian founding of the United States and often use their platform and funds to support radical actors to cause violence against peaceful people.


The story went viral for the meanness of the whole thing. Check out the story from last year:

The National Review reported on Thursday that the whole thing was over now, three weeks shy of a full year into the drama:

Ben & Jerry’s will continue to sell its products in Israel and the West Bank, its parent company announced Wednesday, reversing the ice cream company’s year-long boycott.

Unilever said Ben & Jerry’s will sell its products under Hebrew and Arabic names, after it sold its Ben & Jerry’s business interests in Israel to Avi Zinger, the Israeli distributor and manufacturer.

“The new arrangement means Ben & Jerry’s will be sold under its Hebrew and Arabic names throughout Israel and the West Bank under the full ownership of its current licensee,” Unilever said in a statement.

Ben and Jerry’s announced their boycott of Israel in July of 2021, stating that selling ice cream there goes against their values “of advocating for human rights, and economic and social justice.”

“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,” the company wrote at the time.

Unilever realized “it had to find a way out of the mess it was in” and “found a way to bypass Ben & Jerry’s,” Zinger said in a radio appearance, according to The Times Of Israel.

“Avi Zinger is able to and has the right to continue selling the same Ben & Jerry’s ice cream he’s been selling for 35 years in those areas forever, in perpetuity. It’s his,” Alyza Lewin, president of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, which represented Zinger, said in a statement to The Times Of Israel.

Zinger now has the exclusive rights to the Ben & Jerry’s logo, and will no longer use English branding, according to the outlet.

Unilever’s decision was “a stunning unequivocal defeat for the global [Boycott, Divest, Sanctions] BDS Movement,” International Legal Forum (ILF) CEO Arsen Ostrovsky, an Israeli human rights attorney who was among the first people to initiate a lawsuit in the U.S. against Ben & Jerry’s, said in a statement.

However- leftist Rage culture was not pleased about the announcement and posted in defiance of the parent company- like a spoiled brat:
