Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop selling ice cream in Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territories may prove a pivotal moment in the campaign against Israel’s apartheid system

Al Jazeera reports the United States-based ice cream maker, known for its creative, chunky flavours and progressive social stances, is already facing a punishing blowback by the Israeli government and rabbinical organisations worldwide.

Hafez Ebrahim Moosa speaking to Radio Islam during the Palestine Report on Monday says the decision by Ben & Jerry’s has created a lot of reaction.

“More than fifteen years in the making, BDS activists in the United State of America have bene urging Ben & Jerry’s to divest from Israel especially because this is a company that prides itself on social justice values.”

Hafez Moosa says while Ben & Jerry’s decision has been met with a lot of excitement by Palestinian activists, the company has also indicated that it intends to remain in Israel under a different agreement.

He says Israeli politicians including the Prime Minister Neftali Bennet attacked the ice -cream company.

“Israeli politicians dedicated much of the last week just to attack this ice-cream brand. So the foreign minister denounced it as a capitulation to anti-semitism to BDS and all that is evil. You had the Israeli prime minister coming in, he spoke to the CEO of Unilever which is the multinational that owns Ben & Jerry’s now warning him of severe consequences. He said that Ben & Jerry’s has decided to brand itself as anti-Israel ice-cream.”

Hafez Moosa also touched on news about Israeli spyware sparks International outcry and Israel becoming an International observer at the African Union (AU).
