Germany’s ruling party pans EU labeling guidelines

Germany’s ruling party, the Christian Democratic Union, spoke out against the European Union’s new labeling guidelines for Israel.

“This decision might not bring advantages in consumer protection,” Jurgen Hardt, foreign policy spokesman of the parliamentary group in the Bundestag of the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel told JTA on Thursday about new regulations published the previous day by the European Commission.

“In this case there foremost is a danger of a stigma. An anti-Israeli movement might exploit the decision and put it to use on anti-Israeli campaigns.”
