DANISH COMPANIES BOYCOTT ISRAEL? ARLA DENIES



Hodja blog reports and it is JP's lead story today about Danish boycott of Israeli goods:

To gain contracts in Middle-East countries Danish firms have signed contracts not to trade with Israel for several years.

(If Danish firms have done so - which other firms from EU and the US?)

Arla - the danish dairy firm - says today - that such contracts are pure routine.

Maybe the time has come to check who you are dealing with - and who you are not dealing with.

My Danish friends are embarrassed. To be honest, our Israeli readers have already provided us with some inkling about this. So, I am glad it is out in the open and, hopefully, will lead to a major rethinking on the part of the companies.

It should also give impetus to a"Buy Israel" campaign in Denmark. This link may be useful.

ARLA denies it boycotts Israel. I believe our original information about covering up the origin of the goods should remain the working theory. Still, it is good, ARLA issued a flat denial.

But it is not OK according to neither moral nor WTO.
As far as I'm told it is not legal in Germany to sign these agreements.
It must stop now!

While I'm waiting I will enjoy products from Israel.

It have to be said, that the Danish companies ever followed these agreements, fven though they signed them, they never actually boycotted Israel.
