Danon's Bill to End Discrimination in Judea and Samaria


Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Danny Danon (Likud) has initiated a bill that would end the discrimination against residents of Judea and Samaria when they receive deliveries of products they have purchased.

The bill was submitted after Danon’s office received a complaint from a resident of the community of Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley. The resident said that he purchased a product and was asked to pay an extra 200 shekels in order to have the product delivered to his home.

The resident, Tzviki Weil, wrote in the letter that when he asked the company whether the extra delivery charge was because of distance, he was told the distance had nothing to do with it, and that the extra charge was because his home is located beyond the Green Line.
