The Palestinian Authority, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, is planning to ban products made by six Israeli companies. Photo: World Economic Forum. – A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official, Mahmoud al-Aloul, said on Monday that the PA is planning to ban products made by six Israeli companies.

According to the Palestinian news agency WAFA, products manufactured by Tnuva, Osem, Elite, Prigat, Jafora-Tabori, and the Strauss Group will be banned in markets in the West Bank starting on Feb. 11.

Al-Aloul said that the decision to ban the products came in response to a “recent surge of Israeli violations,” including “the takeover of large tracts of Palestinian lands for settlement purposes and Israel’s illegal freeze of Palestinian tax revenues, collected on behalf of the PA.”

Israel has halted the transfer of tax revenue to the Palestinians in response to PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s decision to unilaterally join several international bodies, including the International Criminal Court.

    Mr. Mahmoud, Electricity you use is made in Israel.
    Make sure you ban this too! You do not want to support the Zionists and any products that they make.
    Don’t forget to send inspectors to every single household and building and make sure that no one is using Israeli power.

    It’s interesting that the many medical innovations and treatments developed by Israeli companies and beneficial to all are not on this banned list..

    Where would Kahaled Mashal take his children for medical treatment in the future if these companies were also banned.?

    I forgot their great heros, the idolized murderers of women and children after whom they name their filthy, littered streets.

    I am sure they could also do without Israeli electricity and Israeli water and Israeli hospitals and etc., etc.

    Now what exactly does the PA produce that would hurt Israel if it refused to use it.
    That is other than terrorists and liars.
