Ben & Jerry’s freezes out settlers, and things get hot.
This is a segment from The “Surveilled, Assailed & Curtailed” Edition.
Incoherent, ineffectual and stumbling conversation
Has Israel given up? You sound like this is no problem. Do you want it to get worse and then you you will resist?
You are living in a different’ galaxie
The ice cream boycott is cutting deep. That´s why I think it is a kind of culmination point in the big discussion. On one hand I don´t agree with the term “occupied territory”, because it is technically wrong. As far as I know, the sovereign state and Kingdom of Jordan is making claims to it. On the other hand, the State of Israel has conquered it in a war, that was forced upon the State of Israel. But Ben & Jerry is ignoring both claims, but instead is making a third claim, namely that it belongs to third party, a vague Future State of Westbank. I agree with the Podcasts final statement, that Ben & Jerrys motive is simply economic and populistic, in order to have a better standing in the Arab world.
I would do whatever Edward Said would about Ben & Jerry
