United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo once again comes out in support of Israeli settlements. Israel Hayom writes:
The appropriate notice was added by the US Customs and Border Protection into the Federal Register on Wednesday. The document states that goods produced in Area C as defined in the Oslo Accords and H2 as defined in the Hebron Protocol “must be marked to indicate their origin as ‘Israel, ‘Product of Israel,’ or ‘Made in Israel.'”IsraelHayom.com
What does this mean for residents of Israeli Settlements?
This means that industry can flourish in the Israeli settlements because there will be no market penalty. Inevitably this results in more local jobs and of course this affects real estate valuations and general livability levels. All round this is a great thing. Thank you Mike Pompeo!
