Anti-Israel Activists Protest Ben & Jerry’s…Then Eat Their Ice Cream
Anti-Israel activists want to boycott Ben & Jerry’s for selling in Israeli settlements, but love it too much to turn down
You can’t make this stuff up.
A group of activists with the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in America on Tuesday protested outside a local branch of Ben & Jerry’s over the fact that the company’s franchise in Israel has commercial contacts with “Jewish settlements.”
Was it mere coincidence that activists chose Ben & Jerry’s annual “Free Cone Day” to hold their demonstration?
Because despite the fact they want everyone else to boycott Ben & Jerry’s over its business ties with the Jewish state, the protesters themselves apparently had no problem accepting and devouring free “Israel-tainted” ice cream cones.
Their indiscretion was captured on camera by a counter-protestor associated with the pro-Israel organization Stand With Us.
