A Modern-Day Yellow Star

(Israel Hayom) Dan Margalit - The European Parliament last week endorsed the labeling of products from Israeli settlements. The EU has gone out of its way to distract itself from dealing with the onslaught of Muslim migrants by putting the mark of Cain on settlement industries that provide livelihoods to many Palestinians. The product labeling effort is a disgraceful form of boycott. The naive among us believe it is just a way of differentiating between what is produced within the 1967 Green Line and what is manufactured beyond that line. However, European supermarket managers will have no patience for figuring out the difference between Tel Aviv and Ariel. They will just forgo Israeli products altogether and order similar products from other countries, which will adversely affect all Israeli exports. The EU labeling effort is a blatantly anti-Israeli initiative. Europe has decided once again to single out Jews through a disgraceful form of boycott. The labeling efforts led by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini are the 2015 version of the yellow Star of David introduced in Nazi Germany.
