Despite Israeli objections, the European Union is moving ahead with its new policy that compels marking items originating in yishuvim to be labeled as being manufactured in the “West Bank”.
The exact guidelines for the new policy are to be announced on November 11, 2015.
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotevely is planning to travel to Europe this week to hold official meetings ahead of the EU announcing its guidelines. She plans to continue lobbying against the new program, which Israel views as handing a prize to Israel’s enemies.
The move will likely fuel the growing fires of anti-Semitism in many European nations.
