Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Ted Cruz (R-T.X.) today sent a bipartisan letter signed by 36 senators to Federica Mogherini, vice president of the European Commission.

The letter expresses concern over reports that the European Union (EU) intends to move forward with new guidelines this week to label certain products made by Israeli companies imported into the EU.

“As allies, elected representatives of the American people, and strong supporters of Israel, we urge you not to implement this labeling policy, which appears intended to discourage Europeans from purchasing these products and promote a de facto boycott of Israel, a key ally and the only true democracy in the Middle East,” the letter states.

“We believe strongly that these efforts are unwarranted, dangerous, and damaging to the prospects of a negotiated solution of [the Israeli-Palestinian] conflict.”

The dummies in Europe do not understand that the businesses involved are providing gainful employment to Palestinians. To damage their industries will ripple quickly to the Palestinians who will be thrust into poverty and additional dependence. Fools!
