JNS.org – Israel received a boost of support on Tuesday as it continued to voice its objection to the European Union’s decision to label Israeli products made in Judea and Samaria, east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.

European Parliament Delegation for Relations with Israel chairman Fulvio Martusciello, visiting the Knesset with his delegation on Tuesday, called the decision to label Israeli products “a mistake.”

“Europe is loud about Israel, but quiet about 200 other conflicts around the world,” Martusciello told his Israeli hosts.

European Parliament Member Marijana Petir of Croatia reiterated Martusciello’s sentiments, saying, “We will not boycott Israeli goods.”
