Irony: EU Directive on Labeling Products Would Harm 20,000 Palestinian Families


deputy-foreign-minister-zeev-elkinDeputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin on Tuesday told Elmar Brok, the chairman of the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee, that 20,000 Palestinian families stood to lose their livelihood if products from the settlements were labeled as such in Europe.

He said Palestinian workers in agriculture or manufacturing could find themselves out of work if these businesses shut down due to a drop in exports to the EU.

“You are trying to hurt Israeli enterprises that already exist and provide a respectable livelihood for tens of thousands of Palestinian families,” Elkin told Brok. “This is simply bizarre.”

  1. There is no irony here only hatred of Jews. The Europeans have no interest whatsoever in helping the Arabs. Their only desire is to murder Jews. Being unable to murder us on their own, they are doing everything they can to help the Arabs murder us.
