MK Deri: In Face of Boycotts We Must Unite and Buy Israeli

Chairman of the Shas faction, MK Aryeh Deri fumed this evening (Wednesday) at the efforts of European countries to foment boycotts of Israeli products from Judea and Samaria.

"In light of the world's attempts to boycott products made in Judea and Samaria, to eliminate funding and scholarships from fellow Jews who live in a certain part of the Land of Israel -- especially with the wave of recent layoffs that have taken place -- I have chosen to buy 'Blue and White' olive oil from Shiloh with which to celebrate the Hannukah festival," he announced.

Deri further expounded, "When they try to boycott us, we must unite. The weak against the strong.. the few versus the many, in order to keep our nation united and strong."

"Just as it was then when we opposed the Greeks, this time as well, with G-d's help, we will be victorious. Now, as then, we are the few against the many, but it takes but a little bit of light to push away the darkness," the MK remarked.
