Beyond Labels

A Response to the EC Labelling Directive on Israeli Settlements

Abstract

EU labelling guidelines for Israeli ‘settlement’ enterprises apply a discriminatory double-standard based on a political agenda with little regard for the welfare of the Palestinian workers who will be disproportionately harmed by their implementation. Furthermore, these new rules impose a punitive burden on those Israelis and Palestinians who are seeking closer economic ties, weaken the EU’s own stated objective of fostering a climate of greater co-existence and compromise, actively encourage the boycott of Israeli goods and prejudge the future borders of any prospective peace deal. While having minimal economic impact on Israel’s €30 billion annual trade with Member States, these regulations will prove to be counter-productive in the EU’s quest to be an honest broker in facilitating a lasting Middle East peace and, for all these reasons, should be rescinded.

ICEJ Events

Teaching truth, celebrating God’s faithfulness

The ICEJ is probably best known for annually hosting the Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles - a multicultural event that draws thousands of pilgrims to Jerusalem for teaching, worship and prayer.

In addition, ICEJ speakers undertake teaching tours, seminars, and conferences across the globe.

The ICEJ is committed to telling the truth about Israel, and helping the church to understand the wonderful faithfulness of God through the fulfillment of His promises to the Jewish people.
