Breitbart News reports that Arizona is divesting all public funds from Ben & Jerry’s over the ice cream giant’s anti-Semitic decision to stop sales in Israeli settlements in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.
“As Arizona Treasurer, I’ve divested all state funds from Ben & Jerry’s for boycotting Israel,” Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee announced on Twitter. “Israel is and will continue to be a major trade partner of AZ. #IStandWithIsrael and I will not allow taxpayer dollars to go towards anti-Semitic, discriminatory efforts against Israel.”
The state’s anti-BDS legislation bars public entities from doing business with an entity that boycotts Israel or territories under Israeli control. 32 other U.S. states have similar laws.
No, it’s on the anti-Semitic side of history.
