The Israeli government is preparing to take on one of the world’s most prominent NGOs over the group’s explicit endorsement of a boycott targeting Israeli products from the West Bank، Arutz Sheva reports.
Amnesty International، a British-based NGO which describes itself as a “global movement” dedicated to ending “abuses of human rights”، this summer called for a ban on all Israeli products from eastern Jerusalem and other occupied terittories.

“The international community must ban the import of all goods produced in illegal Israeli settlements and put an end to the multimillion dollar profits that have fuelled mass human rights violations against Palestinians،” Amnesty International Secretary-General Salil Shetty declared on June 7th.

“It’s time for states to take concrete international action to stop the financing of settlements which themselves flagrantly violate international law and constitute war crimes.”
