couponing in the holy land

Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

Sweet revenge against the EU

The Russian invasion of the Ukraine has made many nations upset, including the EU.  The EU, in fact, is so upset with Russia that it has banned the export of all EU produce to the Soviet nation.  In theory that is commendable, but nobody thought of the European farmers who are left with a considerable amount of produce and no buyer.  The EU then came up with the idea of selling the produce to a neutral country, having that country change the origin labeling and then sell it to Russia.  To that end, representatives from Holland came to Israel to meet with farmers from the Jordan Valley to present their idea.  Their presentation did not go over so well- actually, it was refused on the spot.  Why?  Well, as you, know, the EU has insisted on the labeling of all food that comes from Israel as to where exactly it was produced to boycott products from Yehuda and Shomron.  Considering that parts of the Jordan Valley is included in that boycott, the farmers felt that the Dutch request was quite audacious.

I for one am glad that we stood up for ourselves!
