Naftali Bennett, head of the Jewish Home party

Naftali Bennett voiced a novel idea for labeling goods made in the West Bank during a visit to Samaria on Tuesday.

The Economics Minister suggested they be labeled “Made in the Peace Zone.”

“That way,” he said, “the world will come to Judea and Samaria and see what real coexistence and yearning for peace are.”

Bennett was referring to the joint ventures between Jews and Arabs that take place in the territory and noted that these are the sort of initiatives that will create peace in the region, not boycotts.

Bennett was commenting on Germany’s recent tacit approval of EU efforts to label products made in Judea and Samaria.

    We all want peace and let us remain very realistic,, Because of such statements,Israel is worldwide boycotted. Products from stolen land Should not be allowed,designated or be sold as a peace products(the land was taken by force and is occupied illegally, peace is something differently than that) the Reality is that the land internationally recognized as Palestine,the products have been produced in Palestine and should be labeled as “Made in Palestine”-no matter who produces – and not Made in the Judea and samaria Bennett peace planet.
