The news of the Ben & Jerry’s boycott last week spread around the world. The company announced it would stop selling its ice cream to what they call the OPT, Occupied Palestinian Territory. While the world refers to that area as the West Bank, Bible-believing Jews and Christians call this land Judea and Samaria, Israel’s Biblical heartland.
It has a 4,000-year history going back to the time of Abraham. To some, it may seem innocuous but according to Rabbi Yitzchak Adlerstein of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the boycott is an ominous sign of things that could follow for Israel and the Jewish people. CBN News interviewed Rabbi Adlerstein in our Jerusalem studio about the boycott and what Christians can do in the face of this latest assault on the legitimacy of the Jewish state.
