Jason Greenblatt, the former US Representative for International Negotiations on Tuesday denounced the ruling by the European Court of Justice that all EU member states must label products from Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights as ones manufactured in an Israeli settlement.

As long as they are putting the labels on for informational purposes, it’s possible to turn the malicious intent on its head. Support the girl-cott. Buy to defy.
Good, the labels will indicate which products to buy
