The Jerusalem Post reports: Legislation seeking to label products from countries that label Israeli products was put on hold Sunday, in light of concerns that it may violate international trade agreements.

MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli (Bayit Yehudi) removed the bill from the Ministerial Committee for Legislation’s docket, due to a request from the Economy Ministry.

However, her spokesman said the bill is not dead yet, and Moalem-Refaeli will continue to promote it at a later date.

Moalem-Refaeli’s bill would require products imported from countries that label Israeli goods, or wares from parts of Israel, to be labeled in Hebrew, “Attention: This product is manufactured in a country that chose to label goods from the State of Israel.”
