Skip to comments.Court says EU states must label Israeli settlement products
Posted on 11/12/2019 3:33:06 AM PST by Olog-hai
The European Unions top court ruled Tuesday that EU countries must identify products made in Israeli settlements on their labels, in a decision welcomed by rights groups but likely to spark anger in Israel.
The European Court of Justice said that foodstuffs originating in the territories occupied by the State of Israel must bear the indication of their territory of origin.
The Luxembourg-based court said when products come from an Israeli settlement, their labeling must provide an indication of that provenance so that consumers can make informed choices when they shop.
The EU has consistently spoken out against Israeli settlement expansion, saying it undermines the hopes for a two-state solution by gobbling up lands claimed by the Palestinians. Israel says the labeling is unfair and discriminatory and says other countries involved in disputes over land are not similarly sanctioned. [ ]
In Israel, Professor Eugene Kontorovich, director of International Law at the Jerusalem-based Kohelet Policy Forum, said the European Court is approving putting a new kind of Yellow Star on Jewish-made products.
This blatant discrimination makes it more urgent than ever for the Trump administration to defy Brussels by making official what has long been U.S. practice, to allow these products to be labeled Made in Israel, said Kontorovich.

The EU never left its dreams of crematoria and genocide.
Wow, what can you actually say to this nonsense? Unreal
First it’s products, soon Jews in the EU will be required to wear a yellow star of David on their clothes. Where have I heard this before? Europe really needs to purge itself of the islamo-nazi’s.
Are the Europeans going to label them with yellow stars ?
Perhaps the EU wants to stick a big yellow label on such products which says: “JUDEN”.
A modern yellows Star of David now must be worn by Israelis in the area.
“Europe really needs to purge itself of the islamo-nazis.”
Yes, that’s true. So does the United States. Instead, we elect them to power in the Democrat party and promote them and their sympathizers in our intelligence communities, state department, religions and media.
Hopefully we’ll be able to get a handle on it soon enough to rectify this situation before we go over the edge, like the Russians/Soviets did around the turn of the 20th century and the two decades following.
We can see in the world today a similarity/parallelism between the roles of the Russian Orthodox church subservience to the Monarchy in Russia and its whole unquestioning submission to the authority of the USSR and the Catholic Church’s similar role relating to the West’s atheistic Marxism at the turn of the 21st century and these two decades following.
I would make this suggestion, in order to make the EU happy...brand and design the ‘label’ to be the Star of David (with stitches in the background). Then let the EU bosses know that this has been used in the past, and was originally a German-design. Then say in a blunt way...you hope this doesn’t trigger antisemitism feelings.
I want to know what EUro products are coming from territories occupied by Islamic separatists pushing sharia and jihad.
Sand and slavery.
There are joint business ventures made up of both Palestinians and Jews. They are actively involved in creating export markets. A good portion of them are run by women.
These EU Nazis want to see Palestinian women stomped into the dirt for working with Israelis.
Here’s one example:
I thank God every day that my ancestors left that filthy,disgusting cesspool.
Does Russia have to label their products produced in the “occupied territories” of the Ukraine?
Does Poland have to label their products produced in the “occupied territories” of Poland?
Does Poland have to label their products produced in the “occupied territories” of Germany?
Does France have to label their products produced in the “occupied territories” of Germany?
Yeah, I thought so......
probably should put yellow stars on them
F^^K the EU! They have not been our friend for years.
Let me guess. A nice big yellow Star of David right? Where have we seen this before.
oh, wait . . .
