Bennett Praises Entrepreneurship of Samaria Businesses

Minister of Economics Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home Party) praised the entrepreneurship of businesses and factories in Samaria during a visit. On Tuesday he visited a halva factory that manufactures sesame products. Bennett stated that the factory and others like it not only benefit the Israeli population but also employ thousands of residents of the Palestinian Authority. He called attempts to boycott such products because of the location of the factory "nonsense" and "folly".
