Local Arab leaders in France wish to stop Gaza-Hamas exports to France – for fear that these help Israel.

In an official letter to the interior minister of the Hamas government in Gaza, the heads of Palestinian Arab communities in Tolouse, Strassbourg and other cities asked him to put an end to Gaza farmers’ exports. The reference is to goods that arrive in France via French Jews and the Israeli company Agrexco.

The Arabs complain that Agrexco works against the Arab boycott of Jewish produce from Judea and Samaria, and is actually using Gaza farmers and their produce to this end. The letter states that Agrexco and the French Jews invited Arab strawberry and rose farmers to visit France and Holland and hold press conferences there – all in order to hurt the boycott campaign against Israel.

Arutz -7 Arab affairs correspondent Dalit HaLevi saw the letter, which states, “We wish to inform you that the visit of the delegations will negatively influence support for the boycott of Jewish produce from the settlements, as well as on the morale of the parties that support our boycott… The enemy is trying to use these farmers as an excuse to sell its products from settlements.”

In short, the Arabs of France are asking Gaza to please not allow its farmers to visit France.
