‘Israel expects Germany to lead fight against West Bank product labeling’

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told visiting German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Sunday that Israel expects Germany to lead the fight against the labeling of products manufactured in the West Bank.  

"Boycotting goods harms the entire fabric of life in Judea and Samaria, both for the Israelis and the Palestinians," Hotovely said. 

Israel has been critical of any move to label produce from Jewish settlements clearly or distinguish them from goods produced by Palestinians, arguing that the distinction is part of a larger effort to impose a Palestinian state on Israel.
