The governor of the State of Illinois warned the European Union against imposing any penalties on the State of Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
The State of Illinois warned the European Union (EU) against having a role in boycotting Israel in an any way, including with regards to Judea and Samaria. The state is prepared to meet any such actions with divestments by Illinois from EU firms.
“Under our law, the term ‘boycott Israel’ means ‘engaging in actions that are politically motivated and are intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on, or otherwise limit commercial relations with the state of Israel or companies based in Israel or in territories controlled by the State of Israel,’” Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner wrote in a letter to EU President Donald Tusk, according to JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency).
The EU Council had already enacted new guidelines requiring Israeli goods produced in territories won by Israel during the Six Day War in 1967 to be labelled distinctly from products within Israel’s pre-1967 borders. Rauner’s letter essentially threatens to penalize the EU if it takes any additional significant steps to support the boycott of the Jewish state.
