The ice cream (meltdown) threat

July 2021

I thought, naively, that having got rid of Netanyahu, we would also be rid of his tendency to stir up panic over imagined or exaggerated threats to Israel in order to divert attention from the real challenges facing our country.

Sadly, the response by the “government of change” to the Ben & Jerry boycott of the settlements illustrates that the toxic influence of “Bibism” on public opinion remains.

As Sami Peretz wrote recently in Haaretz (“The boycott isn’t working”, July 21), ongoing BDS attempts to undermine Israel’s economy have failed simply because global demand for the innovation and dynamism of Israel’s private sector is far stronger.
