A re­verse boy­cott?

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS - BY NATHAN JEFFAY

IS­RAELI RIGHT-WINGERS are ex­pected to start boy­cotting busi­nesses that steer clear of set­tle­ments af­ter new leg­is­la­tion has forced companies to state clearly if their stan­dard de­liv­ery and tech­ni­cal ser­vices are un­avail­able to Jews who live be­yond the Green Line.

Shuli Mualem of the Jewish Home party said she ini­ti­ated the amend­ment be­cause set­tlers were be­ing “treated like sec­ond-class cit­i­zens” and told that such ser­vices can­not be pro­vided to them.

Set­tlers will be able to de­mand £2,000 in com­pen­sa­tion if companies have re­stric­tions on ser­vices to set­tle­ments that are not clearly out­lined.

The amend­ment gives the same rights to res­i­dents of re­mote Is­raeli com­mu­ni­ties and Arab towns, caus­ing some left-wing MKs to sup­port it.
