      "Boycotts are from Fringe Associations in Europe"


      Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and other left-wing MKs have been engaged recently in a media crusade, warning the public that no agreement with the PA will lead to massive EU boycotts of Israel.

      The Foreign Ministry has announced that analysis of news sources from the last decade demonstrates that such short-lived boycotts are launched by fringe European associations with an anti-Semitic angle, and there is no concern of mainstream EU boycotts at all. Such media hype, says the Foreign Ministry, only fuels the dissent and antagonism of anti-Israel entities and plays into their hands.
