German Chancellor Angela Merkel will support the European Union’s guidelines to remove “Made in Israel” labels on all Israeli products from Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights, a spokesman said Monday.
Specifically, Merkel is backing a recent German Foreign Ministry statement that the new EU labeling initiative “does not deal with a stigmatized warning decal, as many have presented… What Brussels wants is, however, only a clear designation of the origin of the products.”
Merkel arrived at this stance regarding Israeli products made beyond the 1949 armistice lines despite her public opposition to boycotts of Israel and her past comments that Israel will “continue to receive preferential market access” from Germany.
