Canada Court Sides with BDS Extremists over Israeli Wine Labeling
In a move that has been blasted as illegal by critics, Canada's Federal Court on Monday ruled that Israeli wines from West Bank settlements can no longer be labeled "Made in Israel."
In her ruling, Judge Anne L. Mactavish determined that saying wines produced in the West Bank are Israeli made is "false, misleading and deceptive." The ruling is an ideological victory for the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movemen.
The settlements "are not part of the
State of Israel," the ruling said, and added that "Canadian federal legislation
requires that food products [including wines] that are sold in Canada bear
truthful, non-deceptive and non-misleading country of origin labels."
