Dutch Christians rebuff officials seeking labeling of Israeli settlement goods

July 5, 2019 - from JTA:

" Christian Zionist importers of Israeli goods declined to comply with a government directive to apply special labeling for settlement products."

"The officials requested to visit the store and urge van Oordt to apply the labels, as per regulations adopted in 2015 by the European Commission, which described the regulations as designed to give shoppers accurate information about product provenance.

"srael and Jewish groups protested the regulations as an attempt to isolate and financially hurt the Israeli settlements. The regulations also applied to the Golan Heights and eastern Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 Six-Day War. The Palestinian Authority said the labeling regulations were a welcome buffer against what it considers Israeli land theft."

"The regulations are binding, but the European Commission and Dutch government have limited recourse against countries and businesses that don’t implement them."
