Icelandic Capital Reykjavik to Boycott All Israeli Products
Reykjavik city council passes bill to boycott all Israeli goods “as long as the occupation of Palestinian territories continues.”
The Icelandic capital of Reykjavik has announced that it will boycott all products made in Israel “as long as the occupation of Palestinian territories continues.”
The boycott not does limit itself to Judea and Samaria, but instead targets all of Israel. An explanatory memorandum claims that it is merely a symbolic gesture, though, and there is no list of specific Israel companies or products included.
Björk Vilhelmsdóttir, an outgoing councilwomen representing the Social Democratic Alliance, introduced the bill. This is expected to be her last major action as part of the city council.
Vilhelmsdóttir says, “I believe that the city is sending a clear message that it will not purchase Israel products as long as Israel oppresses another people on the basis of their ethnicity and race, and the continued existence of a wall within Palestine.”
