Netanyahu calls on Meretz to pull West Bank product labeling bill

Meretz remained defiant following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request that the party withdraw legislation requiring that products from the West Bank be labeled.

"The State of Israel is in a battle against attempts to boycott it in the international arena," Netanyahu said at the opening of Monday’s Likud faction meeting. "I am encouraged by the unity on the Right and Left in the efforts against these boycotts…I am also encouraged that legislation against this phenomenon began to pass in the US, and that will help our international effort."

The prime minister explained that boycotters "oppose Israel’s existence in any borders and our right, and the right and responsibility of the IDF, to defend ourselves from attacks against us."
