On the 15th May 2012 Eamon Gilmore the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs suggested he may seek a EU wide boycott of Israeli settlement goods.
Israeli settlements are in Area C, Area C of the West Bank under the Oslo Accord was assigned to Israel.Area A and B was given to the Palestinian Authority to control.
If Minister Gilmore wishes to seek a boycott of Israeli settlement goods,We seek a EU wide boycott of Moroccan goods made in occupied Western Sahara and Indonesian goods made in West Papua New Guinea.
We urge the Minister not to seek a boycott of Israeli goods ,instead he should look to build bridges between various communities in the Middle East.
Singling out Israel will not secure a lasting peace.
