    THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UK HAS CAPITULATED to the pro-"Palestinian" position. The UK is ready to mount a boycott of Israel. The British embassy in Israel (NOT THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IN THE UK) issued a statement clarifying that this move was not a boycott. "This is a recommendation, not a binding order," the embassy stressed. "The British government is opposed to any kind of boycott of Israel." HOWEVER, "The British government has issued an official recommendation urging business owners to mark Israeli products produced in West Bank settlements so that consumers who want to boycott such items will find it easy to identify them." AND "The government recommendation goes further to say that labeling a product from a settlement as having been manufactured in Israel would be considered a criminal offense as it is misleading to the consumer public."
