Israelis Flood Local Market for Top-Class Poultry Rejected by European Union Boycott

Persecuted Jews from Europe are discovering the delights of international cuisine in the Jewish State.

Israeli poultry farmers are taking their export business elsewhere these days – and their chickens too.

European Union sanctions on business emanating from firms based in Judea, Samaria and other locations on the ‘wrong’ side of the 1949 Armistice Line have complicated Israel’s business dealings.

Chickens and poultry products from those areas have become part of the business casualties to fall by the wayside. But given the number of southern chicken coops that were struck by rocket fire during Operation Protective Edge, this may be a blessing in disguise for the local market, particularly with the upcoming Jewish holiday month of Tishrei looming on the horizon.

The process has gotten to the point that it’s no longer worth it for many business owners to bother with the Europeans. Instead, Israeli business owners are seeking other venues — closer to home — for their products.

Officials from Israel’s foreign and agricultural ministries say the dilemma has been solved by an increase in domestic demand which has risen, ironically, in part due to the European persecution of Jews abroad.

For the past two months, the premium-quality products have instead been diverted to local markets, where they much appreciated and in very high demand – particularly with the influx of new immigrants with discriminating palates from France and North America.

It is true the Jewish communities in Europe are sadly being deprived and missing out; but Israelis who normally are asked to make due with the export ‘leftovers’ are reaping the benefits of the ‘sanction bonanza’ as a result.

And happier, gourmet Israelis at home make for a far more popular government in times of crisis.

Bottom line: Palestinian Arab terrorism hasn’t gotten a toehold — let alone a snowball’s chance — with the Netanyahu administration in power.

There are no chickens in the Israeli government coalition this time around.

  6. Israel’s disengagement and eviction from the Gaza Strip began on Wednesday, August 17, and ended on Tuesday, August 23, 2005. On that SAME DAY, Tropical Depression 12 formed and then quickly became Hurricane Katrina, a fierce and enormous Category 4 hurricane that hit Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama – devastating the city of New Orleans. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon saw the largest eviction of Jews in Israel’s history, and President Bush saw the largest natural disaster and displacement of people in U.S. history. Nine thousand Israelis were evicted by their government. Shortly thereafter, one million Americans were evicted by Hurricane Katrina.
    TODAY IS THE 9TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REMOVAL OF THE JEWS OUT OF GAZA. REMEMBER, HASHEM DOES NOT SLEEP NOR SLUMBER. SHALOM EVERYONE – PASS IT ON. KEEP THE MEMORY ALIVE.
