Ben & Jerry’s has announced a boycott of the West Bank and says it will no longer be selling in the “Occupied Palestinian Territory.”
A statement reads, “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. Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement. We will share an update on this as soon as we’re ready.”
This decision is appearing to immediately backfire as critics allege it’s not only “outrageous and blatant anti-Israel,” but also it’s illegal.
In response, Charles Mizrahi, who is editor of Alpha Investor and host of “The Charles Mizrahi Show”, said “Not only is Ben and Jerry’s boycott outrageous and blatant anti-Israel, it’s illegal. Israeli law requires the local distributor to sell in all of Israel. The distributor doesn’t have the option to pick and choose where their product is sold.”
Mizrahi continued, “Additionally, there are 35 U.S. states that have passed legislation making it illegal to boycott Israel. This also hurts the local economy, impacting both Israelis and Palestinians. It’s yet another example of anti-semitic activists pursuing their … hate-filled agenda without any concern about who really is impacted.”
Ben & Jerry’s apparently intends to allow at least some Israelis can continue to partake in Ben & Jerry’s.

NEXT STORY: Tom Brady Cracks Hilarious ‘Sleepy Joe’ Joke Straight To Biden Face: ‘You Understand That, Mr. President?’
NFL Quarterback Tom Brady made a couple jokes during a visit to the White House for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl win.
In front of Joe Biden, Brady says he was mockingly called “Sleepy Tom” when he lost track of which down it was during an offensive drive. Trump notoriously referred to Biden as “Sleepy Joe” during the 2020 election. “They started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom,’” Brady said.
Brady also cracked another joke: “Not a lot of people think that we could have won,” Brady said. “In fact, I think about 40% of people still don’t think we won. You understand that, Mr. President?” Brady clearly was joking about the fact that a seemingly significant number of people question whether Biden won the 2020 presidential election due to widespread claims of alleged voter fraud.
“I understand that,” Biden responded.
Previously in 2015, Brady responded to questions about Trump saying, “Can I just stay out of this debate? Donald is a good friend of mine. I have known him for a long time. I support all my friends.”

Sen. Rand Paul announced that he is referring Dr. Anthony Fauci to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation because Fauci has allegedly lied to Congress.
Fauci has served as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) as well as the chief medical advisor to the president. On Fox News, host Sean Hannity said, “You kicked off your questioning of Dr. Fauci emphasizing federal law makes lying to Congress a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. Is it your belief based on the evidence, senator, that he lied before Congress and broke the law?”
Paul responded, “Yes, and I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress.” Video circulated online of Facui “literally shaking” as Paul confronted him with explosive allegations about past statements. Here are the clips:
