Iceland's capitol joins the BDS madness

The latest area to declare a boycott of Israeli products is Rekjavik:
Two days after the municipal government of Iceland's capital Reykjavik voted to boycott Israeli products, the European Jewish Congress is considering legal redress, the group announced in a statement.

On Tuesday the city's motion stated that it would boycott Israeli goods “as long as the occupation of Palestinian territories continues.”

The local government also stated that it opposed what it termed the “the Israeli policy of apartheid."

“This is clearly a discriminatory move and we have already sought advice that it might break international law and treaties," said EJC President Moshe Kantor in an email to the press.
Iceland's government says the municipality's actions don't reflect its policy. But this is still very embarrassing, and demonstrates a failure by a European country to reeducate its population.

On a semi-related note, BDS supporters like Peter Beinart and Alisa Doctoroff may be barred from entering the country. Rekjavik's council members who support the same should also be kept out.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
