The Biden administration may have partially condemned BDS, but they didn’t seem to condemn actually boycotting Israel. Come on…
Can the Biden Administration be a Little Stronger?
It is always important to address the positive aspects of any administration, whether you agree with them in general or not. The Biden administration here seemed to have condemned BDS, which is good. But the problem is, they did not fully stand against the antisemitism that Ben and Jerry’s so clearly portrayed.
What they definitely did not do is call out Ben and Jerry’s for boycotting Judea and Samaria (and really they are boycotting the rest of Israel, too. See images below for proof).
It’s pretty obvious that the US State Department was not willing to fully stand with Israel here:
QUESTION: But you do not necessarily think that this decision by this one company unfairly – quote-unquote “unfairly singles out” Israel? Or you do?
MR PRICE: I am just not going to weigh in on the objectives, the motivations of a private company. I’ll let the company speak for itself.
Let’s call a spade a spade. This US administration is not as strong of a friend to Israel as the Trump administration was. This administration is not willing to stand up against the anti-Israel sentiment that plagues the world.
