Skip to comments.Israel to Stop Exports of 'Settlement Products' to EU

Israel will end its export of poultry and dairy produce to the European Union from Jewish communities beyond the Green Line, Israeli and European officials said on Sunday, according to AFP.
The restrictions stem from directives issued by the European Commission in February and affect chicken and milk products from communities in eastern Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and Judea and Samaria.
"In keeping with previous decisions, the EU no longer recognized the authority of the veterinary inspections services of Israel to approve the export of poultry and (dairy products), the origin of which are in settlements," a European official told AFP.
The official said that during discussions over implementation of the directives, the "Israelis were asked to put in place a system of distinguishing between the origins of dairy products and poultry."
"If that is put in place that won't affect poultry and dairy products exported from Israel," the official said, noting the new directives would be effective from September 1.

You’re boycotting Israeli products from those areas?
Eu is run by nazis now. And it sounds like Israel may be caving into these basturds. Where is Mossad when they’re needed?
The EU has threatened boycotting Israeli products for years. I believe the UK is already doing that.
My first impression of the coming E.U. was to despise it.
My latest opinion hasn’t morphed.
I still say it’s more like P.U. than E.U.
Operation Choke Point is spreading.
Not just “now”.
I suppose they can find another market...like Russia???
If Russia cuts off gas to Europe this winter, they probably shouldn’t look to Israel to help them out.
yes. well... .my opinion is that when you give in to nazis, they just are emboldened and demand more lives or more tribute
That’s the lesson of history that “Europe” seems to have glossed over. They’re behaving just as Adolf did towards Chamberlain.
The EU headquarters is, mostly, a ruling elite without much accountability.
Citizens have a hard enough time protecting themselves from ruling elites in places where there are some accountability mechanisms
But the EU gives all the signs of a very dangerous organization in this regard.
Whenever there is little or no accountability, you can call it communism, fascism, dictatorship, Caliphate, whatever....the result is usually very very bad for the people (those ruled over). And especially minorities...
I realize Israel tries very hard to maintain positive, good relations insofar as possible with just about everyone, including EU in Brussels. It can’t be easy
No. EU products.
Russia? Nothing. Tnuva’s already signed a mega export deal with China. How many people live there again?
Thank you. Wasn’t trying to nail you. I just didn’t understand. Even if it was Israel, I’d like to hear the reasoning.
