The U.N. Human Rights Council, despite international outrage and pressures, will go forward with a publication of a list of companies that do business outside of the borders established in 1967 — a “blacklist” of sorts, aimed at squashing Israel’s economy.
The blacklist was sent just a few days ago to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
It includes companies in Israel, and that are headquartered in America but doing business in the Mideast region.
The Jerusalem Monitor has the story:
The “blacklist,” which was sent earlier this week to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, includes not only Israeli companies but also US-based companies that operate in these territories, such as TripAdvisor and Airbnb.
Among the Israeli companies included in the list are Teva, Bezeq, Elbit, Netafim, AFI Group, Coca Cola Israel, Bank Hapoalim and others.
Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the UN, has threatened in the past that the US would stop its financial support of the Human Rights Council if the list is published.
But despite the pressure, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is determined to publish the list in December.
