Czech Lawmakers Reject EU Separate Labels for Israeli Products Made Beyond 1967 Lines
JNS.org – The Czech Parliament passed a resolution urging the government to reject the European Union’s decision to label Israeli products originating in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.
According to Czech media reports, the resolution against the EU measure passed by an overwhelming majority.
Czech Culture Minister Daniel Herman said during the debate that it is “absolutely necessary to reject the efforts to discriminate against the only democracy in the Middle East.”
