South African Parliamentarians blocked Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies's bill requiring settlement products to be labeled as originating from "occupied Palestinian territory," marking a "great victory," South African MP Reverend Kenneth Meshoe said in Jerusalem Tuesday.

Meshoe, president of the African Christian Democratic Party, along with 24 other parliamentarians from 17 nations are in Jerusalem for the International Israel Allies Foundation's conference of pro-Israel members of national legislatures around the world. The parliamentarians will also attend the International Christian Embassy's annual Feast of Tabneracles, which brought 5,000 Christians to Israel this week.
