The German government of Angela Merkel has approved of a plan to put special labels on products made by Jews in the Israeli land of Judea and Samaria. Germany joins 13 other EU members in adopting this practice. The desire to punish Jews who live in the two areas is ironic, for more than 23,000 Palestinian Arabs work in those communities, many of them for Jewish-owned companies. To make it even more ironic, almost half of the Palestinian Arabs working there are between 18 and 29 years old, and their daily salary is 88% higher than what Palestinian Arabs make in Palestinian Arab-controlled areas. The total annual income of Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria is more than a quarter of a billion dollars.
Strangely enough, no special labels have been issued for Chinese products made in Tibet, or Russian products from Chechnya. But then, those aren’t Jews we are talking about.
Apparently Germany isn’t finished with the Jews yet.
