British Muslims have decided to boycott Israeli dates when breaking their Ramadan fast, The Guardian reported on Wednesday.

In response, Israeli ambassador to the UK, Ron Prosor, told the paper: "Israel will continue to successfully export dates, whilst others choose to export hate. We encourage Muslim shoppers to ignore this nonsense, and instead double the quantity they usually purchase, to help bring about a two-date solution."
