Illinois Divests from Unilever over Ben & Jerry’s Boycott of Israel

The Illinois Investment Policy Board, which ensures that investment of public money does not occur in entities that are prohibited from investment by Illinois law, voted on Wednesday, Dec. 22 to divest state pension funds from Unilever.

The decision was made because the British conglomerate’s subsidiary, Ben & Jerry’s, plans to discontinue sales of its products in the “occupied territories” of Israel.

The anti-Semitic “independent” board of directors for Ben & Jerry’s has unified politically Red and Blue states against economic boycotts of the Jewish state.
