Holland ‘Recommends’ Yesha Products with ‘Made in Israel’ Label

The Dutch government has advised business owners to refrain from labeling products from the Golan Heights, Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem as “Made in Israel.”

In a circular written by the Dutch Foreign Ministry and published on Wednesday on the website of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, stores are advised but not required to replace “Made in Israel” labels with a label reading “Product from Israeli settlement.”

This applies to products that require a label, such as fresh vegetables, fruit, wine, honey, olive oil, fish, beef, poultry, eggs and cosmetics products, the notice said. The recommendation is in line with guidelines published in 2012 after a meeting by EU foreign ministers that said that “the European Union and its members are obligated to fully and effectively implement existing EU legislation and agreements with Israel regarding products from the settlements.”

The notice also said that labeling products from areas beyond the Green Line as made in Israel would be “misleading,” as international law does not recognize those areas as being part of Israel.

The governments of Ireland, Denmark and the U.K. have also stated their support for labeling settlements products.

  1. You know, I bet there is a huge market for Israeli products in Canada, Italy, the US and elsewhere which is not being fully served. How about no more products to these renegade EU territories? They should be boycotted.

  2. What do you want? Labeling should be straight forward. And the recommendation of the Dutch government is therefore correct.
    However, if you do insist on improper, and therefore false, labeling, it is asking for an import stop of these and similar labeled products.

    Your logic on why the Dutch govt is correct is completely flawed. They are just bowing to pressure from the muslim world. It is not up to any other cowardly country to tell Israel what is part of Israel and what is not.That's just BDS in action Especially this nonsense that part of Jerusalem in not in Israel. The whole process is part of the drive to destroy Israel. Israel has as much legal right, to Judea /Samaria/Golan as any made up entity called the Palestinian people!

  5. Why do you engage in debate with a Dutch antisemite, Ron? It's totaly unproductive, if anything…

  6. Why not put the star of David or flag of Israel on products and everyone will know it is made in Israel?
