EU Denies it is Postponing Labelling of 'Settlement' Products

The European Union on Monday denied a report in the Israeli media that it was delaying a decision to label products from Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, AFP reported.

On Sunday, the Haaretz newspaper reported that the EU had delayed labelling the products to the end of June at the request of the United States.

"Contrary to what was recently reported in the Israeli media, work on the effective enforcement of EU legislation with regard to the labelling of settlement products has not been delayed. Nor has the EU been asked to postpone such work," a statement said, according to AFP.

Haaretz said that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is trying to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, intervened with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton at Israel's request.

Kerry is expected Thursday in Jerusalem and Ramallah, his fourth such trip since March.

Hanan Ashrawi, executive committee member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) had strongly criticized the EU after the Haaretz report but on Monday clarified that "there has been no change in EU positions and no American attempts to seek a delay in the labelling of illegal settlement products."

The You're-a-Peon Union has just called Haaretz a liar. They have a point, of course. But translated, this denial means: "I's a-shakin' that tree, boss! I's a-shakin' that tree!" Peons will be peons. Residents of Europe, don't be peons. Support the girl-cott and go out of your way to buy the labelled products. Algerians, Libyans, Turks or other Islamic types occupying your streets may riot and throw things at you, but they're doing that anyway.
