    South Africa to ban labeling West Bank settlement products as 'made in Israel'

    By Amira Hass | May.19,2012 | 8:18 PM | 1

    Denmark is planning to ban labeling products from Israeli settlements in the West Bank as "Made in Israel," the foreign minister told Danish media on Saturday. The move follows reports of similar plans announced this month by South Africa's government.

    “This is a step that clearly shows consumers that the products are produced under conditions that not only the Danish government, but also European governments, do not approve of,” Foreign Minister Villy Søvndal Søvndal told Politiken newspaper. “It will then be up to consumers whether they choose to buy the products or not.

    A source in Brussels familiar with the matter told Haaretz that it is still unclear whether the move is a recommendation or a new directive.

    In late 2009, the U.K. government recommended West Bank products be labeled separately.

    Earlier this month, South Africa's Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies said that the government is planning to ban marketing products made in Israeli settlements in the West Bank with the label, "Made in Israel."

    I just looked at a map of Israel and damned if the WB isn't right smack dab in the middle of Israel. Imagine what the reaction would be if someone from France would say anything produced in Arizona wasn't made in America. Thats a crock of Hoss apples.

    Is it, like, a sales boost ploy?
    Did they specify as to how the SA got its borders set too?

    This is hilarious.

    Those stupid people don't understand that the main people who are hurt from this boycott are the Palestinians themselves.

    But let them shoot themselves in the leg while we're ROFL. HA!
