The Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip said Thursday that the UK boycott on produce from beyond the Green Line constitutes "economic terror against industrialists and manufacturers, whose only sin is in living justly and morally in parts of the country where Jews lived since time immemorial." "The factories and industrial zones in Judea and Samaria are an example of coexistence, thousands of Palestinians work there. Boycotting this industry will paradoxically hurt those the boycotters think they're fighting for.
