Dr. Mustafa Barghouti: Israel has committed an offense against Palestinian products

Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, Secretary General of the Palestinian National Initiative, explained that Israel has committed an offense against Palestinian products by preventing dairy and meat from entering, not only to’48 lands, but also Occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli authorities recently banned products from Palestinian food production companies from entering East Jerusalem and Israel through the Beitunia commercial crossing.

Israeli troops at the crossing have been turning back trucks from five different Palestinian companies. A big percentage of the companies’ production goes to Palestinian consumers in East Jerusalem and Israel.  

Barghouti said that Israel has launched an official boycott campaign against Palestinian products, and the response to this new violation of agreements requires the Palestinian Authority to impose an immediate ban on the entry of all Israeli products in the Palestinian market.

Barghouti also claimed that Israeli authorities are mistaken in thinking that the measure can break the boycott and divestment movement and the sanctions against Israel.

Barghouti called on some countries that gave into Israeli pressure to take action against the anti-occupation to review their decisions and take punitive action against Israel, which has been occupying the Palestinians territories for over fifty years and implemented racial discrimination. He added that Israel is preventing the import of many Palestinian products to Israeli and international markets.

Barghouti also confirmed that Israel’s actions must be seen as an incentive for the expansion and escalation of the boycott movement against such policies and their products.
