“Products made in Israeli settlements, are illegal under international law.”
Former US president Jimmy Carter is pushing the European Union to implement a law forcing products coming out of the West Bank settlements to be labeled as such, according to a report in the Irish Times.
“The EU has repeatedly condemned settlement expansion in the West Bank,” Carter was quoted as saying, “it could therefore introduce a clear labeling of products made in Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law.”
Carter said that European diplomats share his belief that any Israeli building beyond the 1967 lines are an “(illegal) intrusion by Israel into Palestine.”
Carter’s comments came while visiting Dublin in the company of a group called the “Elders,” a private of group of world leaders.
His sentiments on the issue of product labeling were echoed by one of the “Elders” in the form of former Ireland president Mary Robinson. However Robinson was quick to note that the move is not an attack on Israel, but rather an effort to push along a stagnant peace process, according to the Irish Times.
“People throughout Europe, in their capacity as consumers, have the power to reignite hope in the Middle East,” she said. “As Israel’s largest trading partner, the EU could send a strong signal by introducing clear, EU-wide labeling guidelines.”

Products made in “East Washington” are not illegal under international law. Neither the products made in East London.
When you claim that East Jerusalem is “illegally occupied”, you demonize and delegitimize that state of Israel. You basically want to set up a Berlin style wall in the capital of of the state of Israel.
Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.
When you raise such claims, you are not only promoting an Islamic re-occupation of the city of David. You brand Jews as thief’s, and force them to return their own land to their enemies. You are also supporting political forces that have the same spiritual base as the Nazis. They search for the “final solution to the Jewish problem”.
Shame on these “elders” who attack Jewish properties in a similar fashion as those who supported Adolf Hitler.
