Knesset Minister Calls for "Buycott" in Jerusalem

Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar (Likud - Yisrael Beiteinu) called for a "buycott" to counteract the boycott proposed by the European Union. Minister Sa'ar stated on Wednesday, "I call upon people to buy more than ever products manufactured in factories located in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights." This week the EU said it would sever all ties to anything having to do with such areas outside the 1949 Armistice lines created following the Arab war against Israel in 1948.
