UN Official Demands Boycotts and Israeli Business ‘Black List’

Ynetnews reports: The UN High commissioner on human rights — Jordanian Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein (pictured) —called on the UN deputy secretary-general to prepare to publish “the Black List” of Israeli businesses and international corporations which have ties with the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights to facilitate the launching of boycotts.

Ties which can qualify a business for the Black List include those with any branches in the territories. These include, for example, banks which could be boycotted by the UN under the criteria set out by Al-Hussein even if its main operation centers are not situated in the West Bank or the Golan Heights.

“It is reasonable to assume that the UN has ties with businesses which are expected to be included on the list, and therefore the UN must stop these illegitimate links,” Al-Hussein wrote to the UN deputy secretary-general, the Swedish Jan Eliasson.

He urged the issue to be highlighted as soon as possible and be brought to the attention of the UN Procurement Division which manages regular contacts with Israeli companies and only recently reported that the volume of procurement from Israel has doubled twice in the last two years.
