UN expected to vote for funding UNHRC blacklist of companies with ties to Israel

NEW YORK – The United Nations Fifth Committee, which oversees the international body’s budget and administration, is expected to vote next week to fund a blacklist of Israeli and international companies operating in Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and the West Bank.

The blacklist, which is to be updated annually, was initiated back in March when the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva passed a resolution in order to put it together. The resolution, which was then supported by 32 countries with 15 abstained and no oppositions, was designed to help stop settlement activity.
