An agreement between Israel and the European Union will label products from Isreal proper, but not the disputed territories. Many Jews feel this is anti-Semitism and is a boycott of free trade. Others say the agreement was never meant to have political significance.
 



But the EU has used the issue to emphasize its disapproval of Israel's settlement policy. More than 200,000 Israelis live in Jewish communities in the West Bank and Gaza Strip where the Palestinians want to establish a Jew-free state.

"The problem is the EU boycott [is] because of political reasons," said Ron Nachman, mayor of the city of Ariel in the northern West Bank.

"It is based on rising anti-Semitism in Europe. Instead of saying 'anti-Semitism,' they say 'anti-Israel.' That is the cover," Nachman charged...

...The agreement targets Israeli industry over the green line -- the 1949 ceasefire line between Israel and Jordan in the West Bank and Israel and Egypt in Gaza - and is an attempt to use economic means to apply political pressure on Israel, Nachman said.

Here's the other side of the story -

Israel agrees to label goods from occupied territories

05 August 2004

Israel and the European Union on Thursday signed a protocol requiring country-of-origin labels on goods produced by Jewish settlers in the occupied Palestinian territories, officials said.

The agreement, stiffly opposed by Israel's settlers and right wing, was signed in Brussels after eight months of negotiations, the Israeli foreign ministry said.

Israel's Trade Minister Ehud Olmert lauded the accord, saying it would ward off "a major threat to the continued export of Israeli products to the 25 countries of the European Union," according to a statement released by the ministry.

Israeli authorities had resisted compliance with rules on country-of-origin tags fearing tariffs on products made in the settlements in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights and east Jerusalem, all of which are considered occupied territories by the international community.

Under the terms of an existing trade agreement with the EU, goods labelled "made in Israel" get preferential treatment from EU customs authorities, with many escaping import duties altogether.

The EU has argued that only products which originate from within the internationally recognised borders of Israel are entitled to such a tax break.

Israel's exports to the EU total some 17.5 billion dollars, while those from the settlements total about 100,000 dollars.

- Frankly the idea that any criticism of Israel is automatically anti-semitic is as absurd as it is dangerous.

EternalLeaderof Truth, you only see the good that the Jews have done and the evil that the Muslims have done. You ignore the accomplishments of Muslims and you ignore the acts of violence committed by the Israelis. There have been acts of good and evil on both sides.

You believe that Israelis have a right to defend their land but that the Palestinians do not.
Let's not forget that Israelis are in the land of the Palestinians.
The Palestinians were once a majority of the population.
The Jewish persons immigrated there.

The Palestinians have a right to try and prevent Israel from taking more of their land by building illegal settlements and building a wall which goes into Palestinian territory.


For a list of Islamic accomplishments, you can go to this site here:
www.islamic-study.org...
It covers math, finance, science, agriculture and more.
They have contributed a lot to society.
Imagine having to use roman numerals in your everyday life instead of Arabic numerals.

What most Jews fail to realise is that most of them are Kazar in descent, not actual, "real" ethnic Jews. They are descended from Kazar tribes that converted around the turn of the 1st millenium.
You will find that the "real" Jews where very much like the Arabs of modern day, as arabs are a semitic race also. Many of the first converts to Islam where jewish tribes (as in proper Hebrews, not todays make believe "chosen" people).
We are led to believe by the Zionists that they are the original inhabitants, when in reality they would trace their lineage back to somewhere more akin to Kiev, or the Russian steppes, not Israel!
Plus, Judaism is probably the most barbaric of the major religions. Refering to themselves as the chosen ones, and everyone else as Goyim, or cattle!!! The Talmud advocates that killing of non-jews is ok, only crimes against Jews should be punished! Tell me, where in Christianity or Islam does it not preach Tolerance?

Khazar Jews

True Jewish Origins

If I were a religious person, I'd say you soul is in greater need of saving after that little tirade of ignorant, unfounded, self-aggrandizing racist filth.

A typical resonse from a Jew, Muppet! They have this fixation that they have the right to look down on the rest of us.
IMO, Israel is no better than Iran. It is a religious state, and governs according to a book which, hihly likely, is in fact a plagiarised version of older, more established religions.

I wonder if k"Eternal Lord of (NON) Truth" knows that the original Hebrews (note i didnt say Jews) where in fact polytheastic, and where not the first to come up with the concept of a one almighty God........(willing to enter heated debate with any Jew on this one)

Well, personally I know a few Jews (most of whom are strongly against current israeli policy), and to be honest saying it's a typical Jewish response isn't exactly helpful. I get you point, but maybe zionist extremist would be a better word?

EDIT : Religious superiority complexes are a serious problem in the world right now though!

Yes, i apologise to any non-Zionist Jews, I was just rattled by that diatribe of filth above. He has posted many similar things just now in some other threads.....not a big fan of anything islamic!!!

That's alright.. don't worry about it. In reference to the Jewish religion (as opposed to race), it's should be able to take the same criticism as any religion. Extremist Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus are all just as bad as each other... (extreme Buddhists turn out to be just extremely nice versions of normal Buddhists though.. maybe a lesson somewhere?
)

LOL, extremist Buddhists..... ROFLMAO!!!! Thats is a cool thought.........

Yeah, I agree, there needs be a distinction between the religion and the race. But as I stated above, about 90% of jews today will not be able to trace their roots back to ethnic Hebrews, so Jews thinking they are some chosen race, well not really, the chosen race is actually still living where it always has, as genetically, modern day palestininas/arabs have more in comoon with ancient hebrews than modern day Jews

I agree. Most were Russian weren't they? Plus I think Jewishness is considered dependent on a Jewish mother, and not necessarily a Jewish father..(I think.. I may be wrong there). Race, at least in the West, is as relevant as eye colour from a legal point of view.

Yep, there are two ways to become a Jew

1: Convert, although this is discouraged, so that they only get the truly devoted ones.
2. Have a jewish mother (the father could be a hlaf klingon-half sheep hybrid and it wouldn't matter
)
