Muslim Cleric: Yesha Boycott an Obligation


Sheikh Yusuf Adais, the head of the Palestinian Authority's Supreme Judicial Council of Sharia Courts, substituting for the Supreme Sharia Judge, said Sunday that boycotting merchandise from Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria was a national religious obligation and one way to struggle and defend on the soul and the homeland, according to the Kuds-Net website. He repeated the ban on Palestinian Authority (PA) Arabs maintaining any commercial contact with the Jewish communities, including construction and other work there.

Sheikh Adais stressed the importance of the boycott during the month of Ramadan, adding that merchandise produced in the PA was better. He called on all relevant entities to distribute brochures to consumers and merchants about the importance of the boycott and its economic and political benefit.
