Senators Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz Condemn EU Ruling Permitting Anti-Israel Business Practices

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) condemned the Court of Justice of the European Union’s recent ruling to permit anti-Israel business practices in the 28 member states.

The ruling singles out Israeli goods for discrimination and requires special labels indicating the origin of products imported from Israeli settlements and areas the EU deems “occupied by Israel since 1967.”

“In Nazi-occupied Europe, the Jewish people were forced to wear a yellow star as a means of discrimination. Similarly, this label will apply only to products from Israel and associated disputed territories, thereby discriminating against Israel and against specific Israeli businesses,” the Senators write.
