Palestinians boycott Israeli settler goods

Palestinian money helps Israeli businesses thrive in the West Bank, but now the Palestinian Authority is urging people to boycott goods made by Israeli settlers.

A new front has opened up in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, reports the National. Thousands of Palestinians have taken to the streets of the West Bank to distribute leaflets identifying products and companies that the Palestinian Authority wishes to ban because they were produced or owned by Israeli settlers.

The campaign is being spear-headed by at least 3,000 volunteers. Knocking door to door, they advise residents how to avoid Israeli settler goods in favor of Palestinian produce.

According to a later article in the National, however, the effort is provoking anger from Israel.
