About space and place, it’s about time. What is an “Israeli product” and what is a Palestinian “product”? You can read here the EU guidelines for labeling Israeli products made over the Green Line. What some won’t appreciate on either extreme of the political divide is its recognition of the State of Israel within internationally recognized borders. A firm line is drawn between Israel and Palestine, between what’s Israel and what’s not-Israel, and between what’s Palestine and what’s not-Palestine. Politically, one is not the other.
These are the two articles that make that binary point.
#1. The European Union, in line with international law, does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, namely the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and does not consider them to be part of Israel’s territory , irrespective of their legal status under domestic Israeli law . The Union has made it clear that it will not recognize any changes to pre-1967 borders, other than those agreed by the parties to the Middle East Peace Process (MEPP) .
#9. For products from Palestine that do not originate from settlements, an indication which does not mislead about the geographical origin, while corresponding to international practice, could be ‘product from the West Bank (Palestinian product)’, ‘product from Gaza’ or ‘product from Palestine’.
Tip of the hat to the European Union.
