It’s the end of an era, folks:

From the Ben & Jerry’s official statement:
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.
Are there a lot of people complaining about Ben & Jerry’s doing business in Israel? If there are, that means there are a lot of people who need to find something better to do with their time and energy. And it means that Ben & Jerry’s needs to find better people to take business advice from.

Uh-oh, Ben & Jerry’s. Looks like your virtue signals are still too weak!
Out of all the conflicts in the world, you choose to side with Hamas! https://t.co/GNdqBnjsfK

Oh well. Guess I won't be eating any more of your ice cream. https://t.co/PqCiGInMVa

Neither will Palestinians, apparently.
Just to confirm, this means Palistinians will no longer he able to buy Ben and Jerry's, it will be in Israeli stores only.

So you will not sell ice cream to Palestinians because you support them, but you will stay in Israel because you oppose its government's policies?… Did I get this right?…🤔

Brilliant. The icing on the ice cream cake.
