The European Union has told Israel it must identify the products it makes in disputed territory if it wants to sell them in Europe. The EU says the new measure makes current rules clearer. It also said less than one percent of Israeli products sold in European countries come from the disputed territory. The EU decision would require products produced in the occupied West Bank, the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem to be labeled as from a “settlement.” The Palestine Liberation Organization praised the EU decision. PLO Secretary General Saeb Erekat said, “We welcome this decision and consider it a significant move toward a total boycott of Israeli settlements, which are built illegally on occupied Palestinian lands.” Israel sharply criticized the new rule. Officials said the measure would support efforts toward a boycott of Israeli products. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the EU move immoral. He said, “Of the hundreds of territorial conflicts around the world, it chose to single out Israel and Israel alone.” In the United States, a group of lawmakers also protested the EU decision. They said it appears designed to discourage Europeans from purchasing Israeli products. The dispute between Israel and the EU took place the same week that President Barack Obama met with Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House. The meeting was said to be friendly. It is expected to result in an increase in U.S. military aid to Israel. Israel reportedly wants that yearly aid to rise to five billion dollars.
