Ben and Jerry's stops sales to Jews in Judea and Samaria; Arabs who support terror there continue to get their ice cream

Ben and Jerry's announced:
We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners. 

We have a longstanding partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region. We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year.

Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement. We will share an update on this as soon as we’re ready.
So Jews who live in their ancestral homelands in Judea and Samaria are banned from getting Ben and Jerry's locally - but their Arab neighbors can continue to get it.

From Brothers Supermarket in Ramallah, a sale on Ben and Jerry's for Eid al Ahda:

Arabs can buy their ice cream, Jews cannot.

The moral team and Ben and Jerry's don't seem to have a problem selling their goods to an entity that literally pays terrorists and their families, with citizens who cheer terror attacks, and who would love to ethnically cleanse the Jews from their homeland - and who are about to start slaughtering cows and lambs in the streets to the cheers of crowds.

Sounds like Ben and Jerry's agrees that this is what social justice looks like.
