9:30 pm
be inconsistent with its values. the texas state government though, believes the decision goes against a law which prohibits any boycott involving israel. it's $100000000.00 pension fund has investments in unit labor. and jerry's parent company or been in jerry's, is acquired by unit over 20 years ago, but it has kept an independent board to manage the brands. image. unilever says been in jerry's decision, does not reflect the position of its board, and it wasn't approved. is there? i was prime minister natalie bennett was quick to react though a warning unilever of severe consequences and possible legal action. just to put a little perspective for you about unit eva, ben and jerry itself. over here is just one of what is that 8 ice cream brands that you know, leave room has a whole lot of food brands, as well as the se, cosmetics cleaning products, personal care. it is a huge company. brands of which you will be very familiar with,
9:31 pm
and it is just this one issue with ben and jerry's which has got the israelis concerned. if you look at unit, leave his website here just to give you an idea of a size available and over a 190 countries, all those different products at 2500000000 people using their products every day. with a turnover in 2020 of 51. whoops. and drove about 51000000000 euros. so let's talk to richard levick now ceo of leather, a strategic communications firm with us from washington dc. it's just a lot to bring together here isn't here the ice cream. there's a huge multinational middle east politics and a law which prohibits anyone from disagreeing with israel with boycotting is right . can you sort of tie this together for us from the perspective of texas? well, you know, you're right, it's a very big and complex issue and it's much bigger than just texas. and texas has
9:32 pm
begun, but so has florida, and there are 28 other states in the united states that have some variation of the same type were caught laws regarding their pension investment. so they're already looking at 2, you've got the whole issue of companies, particularly american companies stepping into the political realm where we've obviously seen a great deal more of that in the united states. nike with colon cap or next quarterback from the national football league who was blacklisted. you saw it in georgia with delta airlines, which is headquartered there regarding the voter restriction bill that was passed. but now you have a, for my company, part of, or originally founded for my company, part of unilever, which is weighing in on or in policy. and it just seems sort of a bridge too far from the information we have is una lever, potentially on the hook here because they're saying, well ben and jerry made
9:33 pm
a decision, been, and jerry's and still got its own independent boards. so you know, nothing to do with us. well, you know, it's fascinating. first of all, most people. and they may know that been in jerry's as part of unilever, but they still think of it as that. i conic brand that sort of left over to ship the brand and they feel good. it's one of the 1st companies in the united states to have such an e s g, such an environmentally social conscious brand. so people still feel about it that way. i think been in jerry's board, their local board independent or their, their company board independent of the unity report, which uniquely has a lot more independence and authority than boast. corporate boards do of the parent . and you're already beginning to see a cleavage. remarkably on television. earlier this week you saw a pointing fingers between the chair of the board of ben and cherries and that of
9:34 pm
una lever, which seems to be trying to take a step back a little bit from, from this and say, wait and see. and i think the parent recognizes that it's one thing to stepped into political issues. when you have a business purpose or a geographic purpose, much more difficult when you're casting stones afar. do you think? you know lever will be worried here? you know, this obviously comes back to the, the b t s movement, the boycott development and sanctions movement against israel and well, in the united states, when you bring israel into weight, it is always very, very sensitive. now it's clearly very sensitive. here i tend to think that ben and jerry is in their board, although they would never admit this probably miscalculated when they could have done this quietly. why did they choose to make such a public issue of it knowing full well and knowing that when air b and b did the same thing a few years ago, they back track just a couple months later. also knowing that although the u. s. jewish community is no
9:35 pm
longer as unified as it was created at yahoo, that they're still incredibly active politically, that they were stepping into a hornets nest. and i, and i do think that unit lever is going to try and keep as much of an army distance on this as they can for the foreseeable future and see what happens next. you mentioned that this was a, a vermont based company. my editor here at algiers from vermont as well, and was telling merely that there has been a lot of pressure from within, you know, quite a small site, but a lot of pressure on been and jerry's to support the palestinians. well, that's correct. and in fact, in this i find this fascinating, which is the press that pressure to the blue cotton divestiture. pressure has been on been in jerry's locally for almost a dozen years. and it's very interesting to see how long it took them to make this decision. and then how apparently upset they got with the unit leave or board for not being at the same pace as they were as quickly. there's also another issue or,
9:36 pm
and that is companies in america are being pressured. there is no longer a brand new tragedy that is, that you can neither go to the left or go to the right, but you'll just talk about your product and hope that you can remain as a political as possible. that is increasingly less possible. certainly since the january 6 uprising at the u. s. capital in washington dc. but they're also going to be limits to it and how much people want american companies to weigh in on foreign policy is probably about equal to how much for monitors one when companies to weigh in on their domestic problems. fascinating story, who would have thought all about ice cream all coming down to ice cream, richard levitt? joining us from washington. thank you. thank you. now israel high courted, asked the government to clarify its position on the bed when the village of han last night by september. it's one of dozens threaten with demolition across the

9:39 pm
the spot where that picture was taken. now somewhere there, they used to be the village of jamaica. we can't figure out where exactly from this vantage point. it's all been covered with agricultural land. one of the many ways to raise palestinian heritage from inside the borders of israel. land confiscated uncovered. here they used to be the village of our now a training base for the military. i was surprised. how much isn't though there was such an effort to remove those places not only from maps, but also from reality. in each place, there was something that we can find cemetery, walls or stones that would indicate that there was something there in the past. also from the discovery is a through the connecting of those cases. it's what the people have had in could face at any moment, plans and a works for it to be replaced by newly built israeli town with the same name. other

9:44 pm
which is basically what happened today. now there are 2 factors, probably that played an important role in this happening. first of all, there is in the recent years a more strong, a stronger us presence in the region, especially since the navigation of the by the administrator by then who was very involved involved in the war in the ninety's when he was a us senator on the other hand, the incumbent, high representative, valentin ensco, is leaving off at the end of this month and in bosnia, this move this, bringing in to power this law is seen as a sort of a legacy move a legacy of his or as the high representative involvement v and prompt you swearing in a new government in some way has been approved by the countries court of appeal. it means the army now must the offer will be the 1st female prime minister of the island nation after elections. in april,
