Priorities: As their economies collapse, Europe worries about labeling 'settlement products'

With their economies collapsing around them, the Europeans are busy finding ways to ensure that their citizenry does not buy any 'settlement products.'
The work now underway in Brussels to create guidelines for the sale of West Bank settlement products follows a December 2012 conclusion by an EU meeting of foreign ministers that all agreements with Israel “must unequivocally and explicitly indicate their inapplicability to the territories occupied by Israel in 1967, namely the Golan Heights; the West Bank, including east Jerusalem; and the Gaza Strip.”
Postal codes placed on these products already alert European custom officials that the products are produced over the pre-1967 line and are thus not part of the EU’s free trade understanding with Israel.
But the label still reads “made in Israel” and the consumer cannot distinguish on which side of the pre-1967 line the product was produced.
Last week 13 European foreign ministers sent a letter to the EU’s Foreign Policy chief Catherine Ashton in which they applauded this work.


Among the countries that signed it were: the United Kingdom, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal and Slovenia.
Here in Israel, we should hand out candies and other sweets made in Judea and Samaria on the day when the final collapse of Europe is confirmed. That day is coming soon. They deserve to rot.

Dear Reader, did you know that the BDS-Movement is supported also by certain jews? In Europe by EJJP.ORG and in Switzerland, by the infamous JVJP.CH.
I am actively fighting them in every possible legal way. With adverts and with my Blog in German.
I invite you to read my Blogs.
