In order to avoid these boycotts and the EU-requirement to label settlement products, would it be possible to go around them so that Israel for ex. transports the settlement products to stores in Israel-proper where they can be bought by foreign buyers as merely "Israeli" products? After which they needn't be labelled, bc they are bought in Israel-proper and not directly from the settlements. Or is Israel too labelling them the same as Europe? Hope not! This thought occurred onto my mind as I was playing with an idea to put up a shop that sells only Israeli products. The boycott violates people's freedom to buy what they want, but not if there are small private enterprises, which have the freedom to buy Israeli, the emphasis on "Israeli", products to fill up their stocks with and sell them. There namely IS market for Israeli products in Europe, but all this boycott-bullying is preventing customers desiring them to buy them in dep.stores and big markets. This is wrong toward those people. So, loop- holes are desperately needed!
