JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the European Union “should be ashamed” about its decision to approve guidelines requiring member states to stop carrying the “Made in Israel” label for products made in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.

“The EU decision is hypocritical and constitutes a double standard; it singles out Israel and not the 200 other conflicts around the world. The EU has decided to label only Israel, and we are not prepared to accept the fact that Europe is labeling the side that is being attacked by terrorism,” Netanyahu said in a statement Wednesday.

“The Israeli economy is strong and will withstand this; those who will be hurt will be those Palestinians who work in Israeli factories,” added Netanyahu.

    Essa aprovação da UE é absurdoda. Por que não proíbem produtos de outros países que não respeitam os direitos ocidentais como democracia, pluralismo politico ideológico religioso e liberdade de imprensa?
