Israel: SA settlement labeling reminiscent of racism

Israel said Wednesday that a South African decision to mandate special labels on products coming from settlements is exclusion and discrimination that “brings to mind ideas of a racist nature which the government of South Africa, more than any other, should have wholly rejected.”
The harsh statement issued by the Foreign Ministry followed the South African cabinet’s decision to approve a plan to require labels on products coming from the settlements so that they do not read “Made in Israel.”
