US states’ fully baked anti-BDS laws could put the freeze on Ben & Jerry’s

With its Monday announcement that it would cease selling its ice cream in the “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” Ben & Jerry’s ostensibly aims to take the anti-settlement cause a step further than Airbnb was able to carry it.

But the ice cream giant is slated to face similar legal challenges by pro-Israel activists and lawmakers in the US who do not accept efforts to differentiate between Israel and the West Bank when it comes to boycotts. They maintain that the refusal to sell a pint in Efrat is no different from refusing to sell one in Tel Aviv.
