Ice cream isn't mentioned in the Bible, as frozen desserts were hard to come by in the desert in pre-electric times, but Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have foolishly and needlessly put their delicious diet-busting treats onto the hot stove of the insidious BDS movement to boycott, divest from and otherwise sanction Israel by removing Ben & Jerry's from "Occupied Palestinian Territory," which to them includes the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem.

Israel vows to respond 'aggressively' to Ben & Jerry's decision to stop selling ice cream in occupied territories

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's office said he spoke with Alan Jope, chief executive of Ben & Jerry's parent company Unilever, and raised concern about what he called a "clearly anti-Israel step." He said the move would have "serious consequences, legal and otherwise," and Israel "will act aggressively against all boycott actions directed against its citizens."

A little background...
I met Ben, Jerry and Jeff at the beginning of the One Percent for Peace Campaign.  I had been working for years with Jobs for Peace to achieve a 25% transfer of military dollars to much-needed domestic spending on education, jobs, health and housing.  The two efforts were naturally aligned.
