Ridgewood NJ, after Ben & Jerry’s said it was going to stop selling its ice cream in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and contested east Jerusalem, saying the sales in the territories sought by the Palestinians are “inconsistent with our values.”
The anti-Semitic stance has raised the ire of many . GOP Gubernatorial hopeful Jack Ciattarelli said in a post on Facebook ,” In response to Ben & Jerry’s decision to stop selling their products in parts of Israel, the Ciattarelli household will no longer be buying their ice cream or products.`
It apparently raised the ire of a small group of local Israel supporters who staged a protest in front of the Ridgewood Ben & Jerry’s Sunday afternoon who did not share Ben & Jerry’s anti-Semitic “values”.
