France, Italy and Spain issued warnings to their citizens against doing business with Jews who live in “unacceptable” sections of Israel.

In Paris, rather than attempt to tackle a wave of Judeophobia unseen since the Vichy government collaborated with the Nazis, the foreign ministry is now pushing French investors and businesspeople not to invest, buy land or do business in Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem or the Golan Heights.

A statement on the foreign ministry’s website advises against investing, purchasing land, or engaging in economic activity in the these territories.

“We call upon citizens or business people who are considering becoming involved in economic activity in the settlements to seek appropriate legal advice before going ahead,” said the foreign ministry statement, according to a translation from the French published on the European Jewish Press website.

EJP quoted a French diplomat, who said the announcement is part of a coordinated effort by Europe’s largest countries — Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Spain — to curtail economic cooperation with Jews who “provoke” Arab violence by living in Hebron, Shilo and the Mount of Olives. In the land of the Inquisition, the Spanish foreign ministry said Judea and Samaria Jews constitute an obstacle to peace.”

“The potential buyers and investors should know that a future peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians or between Israel and Syria could have consequences both for properties acquired and for economic activities promoted in said settlements. In case of litigation, it could be very difficult for member states to guarantee the protection of their interests,” the Spanish statement said.

However, Madrid quickly clarified that the European boycott does not extend to “acceptable” Jewsish communities such as Tel Aviv and Ranana.

“The statement is not intended as a call for a boycott in any way, or to limit economic cooperation between Spain and Israel within its internationally-recognized borders,” Carlos Entrena Moratiel, a government spokesman, told JTA.

    European bastards

  2. This should not be news. This has been happening and will continue to, as long as Jews remain in Europe.

  3. I am European (a German Christian) as well and I support Judea and Samaria from the bottom of my heart!

  4. Anti Semitic bums! Let them not benefit from any of Israel’s innovations!

  5. The EU is sinking into a quagmire of islamist garbage from which it may never recover, I’d suggest we ignore them & watch them drown, it sure looks good on them.

  6. David Adda says:

    We are “Settling” our land given to us by Hachem over 3000 years ago, while the euro trash are being unsettled from their land that they stole from each other over the past 2000 years! Couldn’t happen to more vile and dreadful scumbags!

  7. Mike Burke says:

    Europeans are vile…they are incapable of being anything but what they are: the refuse of Asia, pushed out into a far western peninsula they pretend is a Continent of its own!

  8. Mike Burke says:

    Europe would be fine…if it were not for Europeans!

  9. unbelievable !!!!!!!…..instead of uprooting the muslim who wants to take over their countries they go (again) after the Jewish population

  16. Whos hoing to invest in an unstable country thats forever at war with their neighbours sending rockets too and throo – terrorizing each other constantly on the verge of full scale war ? Its not what youd call a stable blue chip investment now is it ??

  18. What your saying is so true but you are the cleverer of the two and you have to work it out taking into account their downfalls – how uncivilised are they going to be if you do this or that

  19. How are they going to react if you do this or propose that and work around it – your not dealing with logical people so to counter that you might have to do some illogical if that makes any sense or logic ie confont illogic with illogic – i know there animals

  20. how are they going to get rid of the jews? employ the same to muslims…..the muslims need to be loaded on transports and deported….civilized !….this cult has kept it’s inbred populace so under it’s terroristic thumb for 1500 years that they are just barely civilized period….and conform to the wests culture?…never have and never will ( ie Bosnia-Herzegovina ,,a several hundred year old war over muslims moving in on another culture)…if they are not removed they WILL demand that the country they are in concede to their laws and they will use terror and intimidation along with infiltration into the government …there are many forms of jihad and there is NO such thing as a moderate muslim…if radicals move in the moderate will turn the infedel into save thierselves…their history has proved this over and over again….move the out any way that it can be donw

  21. David Darko says:

    Don’t care about the Europeans nonsense, their words are phrase & rubbish” let the settlement flow

  22. We seem to be under some illusion of a “civilization” much like the ancient Hellenism. We talk about freedom and free enterprise, etc. But how about some reality? Muslim /Arab/ so-called Palestinians do not want any Jewish settlement or existence in general. Most Jews feel and must feel likewise about them. Europeans are Europeans and don’t know what the hell is up or down and ultimately a foreign culture. The US trips on some Israel as potential Jesus-Land in the sentimental way it looks at Xmas and easter egg hunts. Israel cannot depend on such crazy people and their money is as unpredictable as it is dangerous. It doesn’t matter what “Europe” wants in Israel unless it is Israel and only Israel maintaining its sovereignty and people in the way that serves itself. These others do this and they would cut Israel’s throat any day to keep from being inconvenienced.

  24. The French have always been anti-Semitic. They followed Hitler with glee. May there overload of Arabs start beating them see how they enjoy it

  25. Judy Richka says:

    F*&& them !! I will be so happy to see eu run by arabs praying in the streets and living with sharia law!!!!!

  26. Jan Pištěk says:

    Is there any reason to pay declining Europe any attention? P.S. I´m European.

  27. A Europa la asesinaron en los campos de concentración, a los millones de judíos asesinados los reemplazaron por el triple de islamistas. Qué horror.

  28. Israel, no estás sólo, Tu Dios sigue contigo y es el mismo de ayer, de hoy y lo será mañana. Amén

  29. ISRAEL PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BIULD AND LIVE WHERE EVER THEY DESIRE IN THE JEWISH LAND OF ISRAEL PERIOD!! AND NO DEVILSS WILL TRY TO CHANGE THAT PERIOD!!!!

  30. SEND ALL PALA****S=JORDANIANS BACK TO WHERE THE FK PARENTS COME FROM SEND THEM TO THEY HOME OF JORDAN WHERE THEY BELONG!!!!

  31. Europeans still can’t break away from their anti-Semitism

  32. how long will this evil counsel against the Jew go on? They will plot but it shall come to nought, for the mighty hand of the Lord will fight for Israel

  33. Kenneth Blum says:

    Instead of paying attention to these losing countries, lets just focus on the positive, how we can continue to build and strengthen our economy in Judea and Samaria.
    Here comes my pitch :-)
    Buy from judea and samaria. Look up and call a business on Dapei Katom; http://www.dkatom.co.il…dont speak hebrew? Not in the country? Then you can buy art and have it delived direct from Boutique Katom; http://www.bkatom.co.il
    Revenue from art sales are reinvested into the local campaign.
    So as much as we share this news from the EU, lets share 10x more this news.
    In the end we will win if we are more active towards building.
