      From the tiny state of Vermont, which for some strange reason is able to stand up to Israel. It helps to have Bernie and Ben & Jerry’s, so by definition, we can’t be antisemitic.

      The ice cream company announced it will stop selling products in the occupied Palestinian territories

      Israeli leaders are furious with the American ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s for announcing that it will stop selling products in the occupied Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

      Gilad Erdan, Israel’s ambassador to the US, sent letters to the governors of the 35 US states that have laws on the books against the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that calls for a global boycott to pressure Israel over its occupation and other human rights abuses.

      “I ask that you consider speaking out against the company’s decision, and taking any other relevant steps, including in relations to your state laws and the commercial dealings between Ben and Jerry’s and your state,” Erdan said in the letter that he sent Tuesday, which he coordinated with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

      Erdan said Israel views Ben and Jerry’s decision as “the de-facto adoption of antisemitic practices.” Lapid made similar comments on Twitter. “Ben & Jerry’s decision represents shameful surrender to antisemitism, to BDS and to all that is wrong with the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish discourse,” the foreign minister wrote on Monday.

      That’s almost as ridiculous as saying a Jewish senator who actually lived in Israel for a while was “anti semitic”. But yeah, they said that too.

      Maybe it’s just Vermont Jews they don’t like??

      I think I might have to go buy some Ben & Jerry’s.

        Some of them are Kosher, some aren’t.  Though I’m not sure what the difference is, since I doubt they’re mixing meat & dairy in the ice cream. And they don’t have any bacon flavors, as far as I know (they rotate so many flavors in and out it’s hard to keep track). Though I imagine there might be some grain-derived ingredients in some flavors (anything involving cookies or pretzels, for example) that would violate the extra strict “Kosher for Passover” rule that applies during that particular time of the year.

        So to be safe, stick with the Cherry Garcia which is both Kosher and Gluten Free….

      I can see why they would think he’s a vicious anti-Semite.
