Unilever Caves in Israel

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
Big news. 
Unilever has decided to ignore the wish of Ben and Jerry's to divest from Israel and instead has decided to renew the contract for Israel production and distribution of Ben & Jerry's ice cream with Avi Zinger and he will be allowed to continue his operations as he always has, including selling the ice cream in Judea and Samaria, aka the West Bank. They also explicitly repudiated and disavowed the BDS movementUnilever caves in Israel
This is a big win. 
A lot of people put a lot of pressure on them for the entire past year over this. 
It is somewhat amazing how we will come together and stay focused on the goal for ice cream.
Now we need to celebrate with having Ben & Jerry's Israel come up with a new flavor, maybe based on Manischewitz's new fish dogs with a chrein swirl.
I do wonder if now I can stop buying the ice cream out of solidarity with Ben & Jerry's Israel, while those abroad can now start buying it again....
