The founders of the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream company, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, will whip up a limited batch of ice cream at the home of the Democrat who is running to unseat Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA.)
The candidate, Ammar Campa-Najjar, posted (and then deleted) on Instagram about his grandfather, a “legend” — Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar, a senior member of Black September, the group responsible for the murder of eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972.
Ben & Jerry’s concoction is called “Ammar-etto American Dream.”
But perhaps a more appropriate ice cream name would be “Tangerine Terrorism.”
Democratic congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar (Calif.) on Wednesday announced the name of a new ice cream flavor created for him by the founders of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company.
Campa-Najjar said in a Tweet that the flavor is called “Ammar-etto American Dream.”….
The new flavor is part of a larger effort by Cohen and Greenfield along with progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org to give Democratic congressional candidates more visibility in the upcoming midterms….
Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar has deleted an Instagram post in which he referred to his grandfather, Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar, as a “legend.”
Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar was “was “a senior member of the Palestinian terrorist group Black September that murdered 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics,” according to the Times of Israel, and a deputy for Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader Yasser Arafat.
Earlier this year, when Campa-Najjar’s roots were first reported, he condemned his grandfather’s actions and supported peace.
But in a 2015 Instagram post praising his father, who is a former Palestinian Authority (PA) official and Palestinian ambassador, Campa-Najjar referred to his grandfather as a “legend.” He offered no criticism or condemnation of his grandfather’s terrorist acts.
