Ireland Advances Bill Making it Criminal to Buy Israeli Goods

January 31, 2018 from UnitedWithIsrael:

"The Irish parliament gave initial approval to a bill that would boycott goods produced by Israeli companies. Israel is enraged."

"he Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018 would make it a violation of Irish criminal law to purchase goods and services from Israeli companies based in Judea and Samaria and the Golan Heights. It would punish violators with up to five years in prison."

"There are several contentious occupations closer to Europe, including Russia’s occupation of Crimea, Turkey’s occupation of northern Cyprus, Armenia’s occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, and Morocco’s occupation of Western Sahara, the bill’s sponsors suggest that the Irish legislation is carefully drafted to apply only to territories connected to Israel."

"No other law prohibiting trade with Israel as a criminal offense has been enacted in other European countries."

"Further discussion on the bill has been postponed until July at the request of Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney."
