UK catering to Israel-haters

The UK  government is on the verge of requiring labels on products coming from Judea and Samaria, enabling political boycotts. The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is recommending that food labels for products made in Judea and Samaria say either "Israeli settlement produce" or "Palestinian produce." Israel's Foreign Ministry has vehemently denounced this move.  

Spokesman Yigal Palmor of the Foreign Ministry said, "It looks like it is catering to the demands of those whose ultimate goal is the boycott of Israeli products." Chairman Dani Dayan of the Yesha Council, which represents the Jewish communities, said the decision was the "latest hostile step" from Britain. He added, "Products from our communities in Judea and Samaria should be treated as any other Israeli product." Israeli officials said they feared this was a slide towards a broader boycott of Israeli goods. It is a matter of concern."

In my opinion this is the equivalent of marking Jewish shops in the thirties. The UK seems to have no qualms though about using unmarked oil from a country that sentences women to death for being raped.
