A (Social Media) Storm is Brewing Against Ben & Jerry’s
Dozens of pro-Israel online activists (I refuse to use the cringe word “influencer”) and organizations from around the world, will create a social media storm today (Thursday) at 5pm (Israel time)/ 10am (EST) criticizing Ben & Jerry’s’ decision to boycott Israelis living in Judea and Samaria.
The coordinated move will highlight the background of Anuradha Mittal, Ben & Jerry’s chairwoman of the board, as an Israel-hater (and even antisemite), and the fact that the BDS Movement is aimed at destroying the State of Israel as a Jewish and Democratic state, no matter what its borders are.
Users will use the hashtags #ShameOnBenAndJerrys & #ShameOnMittal and tag the leadership of Unilever, the parent company of Ben & Jerry’s, that has tried to disassociate itself from the ice-cream company’s decision.
