Possible language:

Ben and Jerry’s,

Thank you for standing up not only for Palestinian rights, but for human rights and international law. We understand that as a business you have many other concerns, such as providing for your workers, making a profit, and worrying about the competition. It is often difficult for people to understand that standing up for human rights and international law are, in the long run, also best for businesses and their employees. We applaud you for taking the long view and understanding that the interests of Ben and Jerry’s align with the rights of individuals and peoples around the world.
