Israel Matzav: 'Palestinian Authority' warns 'Palestinians' against shopping at Rami Levy

'Palestinian Authority' warns 'Palestinians' against shopping at Rami Levy

Rami Levy is a discount grocery chain with 16 stores throughout Israel, two of which are located in Judea and Samaria. There's no discrimination - 'Palestinians' are free to shop at any of the stores, and in fact many of them do shop in the two stores in Geva Binyamin (in Samaria) and Mishor Adumim (in Judea). Many 'Palestinians' are also employed in those two stores.

The 'Palestinian Authority' has a problem with that. And on Thursday, 'Palestinian Authority' Economy Minister Hassan Abu Libdeh issued a veiled threat against those 'Palestinians.'

Abu Libdeh said in an interview with the local Al-Watan TV station that the PA knew the names of individuals and families who shop in the Rami Levy stores.

He condemned the phenomenon of Palestinians buying goods at the Israeli supermarkets in the West Bank as a “big disgrace.”

Abu Libdeh said the PA was serious in implementing the decision to boycott settlement-made goods. Nevertheless, he denied that the boycott was politically motivated or had anything to do with the resumption of indirect negotiations between the PA and Israel.

The boycott was intended to “cleanse” the Palestinian market of settlement products and boost Palestinians’ confidence in their national products, he said.

Peace is at hand. Heh.
