The European Union might as well label West Bank settlement products with “yellow stars” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Friday in reaction to its push to let consumers know which Israeli products were produced over the Green Line.
He noted that the issue had hit the Israeli media on Wednesday, as the country held its annual commemoration for the 6 million European Jews who were killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust during World War II.
As part of their initial decrees against the Jews, the Nazis forced them to wear yellow stars.
Lieberman in an interview with Israel Radio said he had a suggestion for the EU’s cynical drive with regard to the settlements.
“They can take a yellow star and mark all the product from Judea and Samaria and the Golan Heights with a yellow star,” he said.
