EU’s Yesha Boycott an ‘Outrage,’ Says Left-Wing Columnist

Matti Golan, former editor of the left-wing Haaretz newspaper and now a columnist for the Globes business newspaper, wrote that “outrage” is an understatement when referring to the European Union’s new guidelines to boycott Judea and Samaria.

The guidelines require that Israeli companies signing agreements with the EU, such as those in the field of science, must sign in writing to the EU that they have no ties with Jewish agencies or companies in Judea and Samaria.

Noting that the companies must sign an agreement including a clause that Israel recognizes no sovereignty beyond the 1967 border, Golan wrote, “The Palestinians can already tell chief negotiator Saeb Erekat that his services to negotiate with Israel are no longer needed; EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton is doing his work…

“This is an attempt by the EU to determine issues that the parties should agree on in negotiations… What would prevent Ashton and her colleagues from demanding that Israel accept, in exchange for relations with the EU, the right of return, for example?”

Lest anyone worry that Golan has turned nationalist, he also called to task Housing Minister Uri Ariel for announcing plans for more residential units in Judea and Samaria. He called the announcement a “bomb aimed at destroying any possibility of drawing up a smart foreign policy.”
