Israeli premier accuses German department store of boycott

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s prime minister is accusing a German department retailer of a “boycott” right after it eliminated products manufactured in Israeli settlements below new European Union labeling guidelines.

Benjamin Netanyahu observed Sunday that Berlin’s KaDeWe section store was as soon as owned by Jews ahead of the Nazis seized it. He says its decision to label merchandise from Israeli communities and remove them from its shelves is “a boycott in each and every respect.”

Netanyahu explained it was morally and historically unacceptable and referred to as on the German government, which opposed the solution labeling, to act on the make a difference.

The EU selection to begin labeling products originating in the settlements has infuriated Israel, which states the transfer is unfair and discriminatory, and has linked it to a developing intercontinental boycott motion.
