Obama administration says labeling ‘not a boycott,’ because ‘settlements aren’t part of Israel,’ and adds: ‘we label too.’
US President Barack Obama’s administration on Thursday voiced its approval of the discriminatory EU decision the day before to label Jewish goodsfrom Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.
The administration said the move is only a “technical guideline,” and is not a boycott, reports Associated Press - despite the obvious assumption that consumers would follow the labeling when choosing what products to buy.
US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said, “we do not believe that labeling the origin of products is equivalent to a boycott. And as you know, we do not consider settlements to be part of Israel. We do not view labeling the origin of products as being from the settlements as a boycott of Israel.”
Despite Toner’s words, an expert at NGO Monitor spoke to Arutz Sheva about the labeling on Wednesday, and revealed that the move is the first step in a planned total boycott of Israel based on the stated goals of the groups who brought about the labeling.
