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.”

The Czech Republic is one of Israel’s strongest allies in Europe. The Jewish state’s ambassador to the country, Gary Koren, welcomed the Czech lawmakers’ resolution.

    Prague was once a major centre of European Jewish life and in the 20th Century the Czech people rejected the ‘racial science’ of the German invaders. My late father-in-law’s late brother spent the entire WW2 in Prague, helped by his non-Jewish friends. The villain Neville Chamberlain sold the democracy of Czechoslovakia to keep the Nazis happy, the same villain who closed the gates to British Palestine to keep the Arabs happy.

    Go visit Prague, not London nor Paris. The Czechs are friends of the Jewish people. Their Soviet Union experience made them understand persecution. Support our friends, not our foes!

    Hurray for the Czech government that found the courage or sanity to vote for the good guys and separate from the losers.
