The Danske bank of Denmark announced they plan to boycott Bank HoPoalim for its involvement in settlement construction.

They recently pulled their investments from Israeli real estate giants Africa-Israel and Danya Cebus.

It turns out that the Danish Embassy has an active bank account at Bank HaPoalim, and they have no intention of closing it down.

The Danish embassy said that the decision of Danske bank is a private one, and the government of Denmark has no say over their decisions.

It’s seems worthwhile to point out that Danske bank not only were not doing business with Bank HaPoalim prior to their announced “boycott”, but they don’t have any investments with any other Israeli bank either.

One might begin to suspect that settlements have nothing to do with their decision to not work with any Israeli banks.

  1. I don’t think that these tin pot European monarchies would be a good investment partner any way they are quite staid and backward Israel can attract way better, Europe’s going down no point hitching a ride on a sinking ship

  2. Good to know, I’ll be sure not to travel there. All this is – is a country hiding behind anti semitism. Let some of these countries review the human rights violations of some of these Moslem nations they’d rather support- no real surprises with theses Europeans.

  3. As I have commented elsewhere, Danske Bank has to come up with an explanation about a boycott in any form concerning Israeli banks. My engagement with this bank is depending on a satisfactorily explanation.
