David Elhiyani, head of the Jordan Valley Regional Council, told a Knesset committee Monday that photographers from extreme left-wing organizations continually come to the Jordan Valley in their work to denigrate Israel.
The reason for the visits of these extremist organizations, Elhiyani asserts, are their efforts to promote the boycott movement against Israel.
According to Elhiyani, the photographers shoot produce as it is packaged and transmit the information regarding company names to international organizations that support the boycott.
"They are filming the packing of produce with the names of farmers [stamped on the packaging] and those names go to organizations in Europe and make their way onto the reports of European left-wing organizations."
A shocked MK Anat Berko (Likud) interrupted Elhiyani's testimony to say "the US would shoot them for trespassing."
