Surprisingly, No Big Macs in the West Bank
Even the less-than-socially-responsible McDonald's has deemed the Occupied Territories too illegal to do business with, refusing to open a branch in a mall slated for the West Bank settlement of Ariel. The decision by McDonald's Israel's owner, an original co-founder of Peace Now, has sparked anger and boycott threats by settlers, perhaps because they realize the move is more about the growing clout of the BDS movement and those who reject Israel's delusional policies than it is about the relative virtue of burgers. Improbably, the move also gives McDonald's a more ethical business profile than Ben & Jerry's, which does sell in the West Bank. Register your objections here.
