Human Rights Council okays ‘blacklist’ of settlement businesses

The UN Human Rights Council votes in favor of a “blacklist” of companies operating in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Golan Heights, a motion that passed with no countries voting against.

The proposal, put forward by the PA and Arab states, includes a condemnation of settlements and calls on companies not to do business with Israeli settlements.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon responded saying that “When the UN marks Jewish business so that they can be boycotted it reminds us of dark times in the history.”

“The Human Rights Council has turned into an accomplice of the BDS movement and its conduct is both anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic,” he says in a statement.
