Israel slams SAfrica for 'Made in Palestinian Territories' tags

AFP , Wednesday 22 Aug 2012

Following a South African cabinet approval to place 'Made in Palestine' labels on goods imported from Jewish settlements, Israel's foreign minister lashes out stating it is 'blatant discrimination' against the Jewish state

The Israeli foreign ministry dismissed as "unacceptable" a decision by the South African cabinet on Wednesday approving the placing of Occupied Palestinian Territory labels on imported goods from Jewish settlements.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said in a statement that the move constitutes "a blatant discrimination based on national and political distinction."

"What is totally unacceptable is the use of tools which, by essence, discriminate and single out, fostering a general boycott," he added.
