A row has erupted between the European Union and Israel over the labelling of products "Made in Israel." New guidelines mean Israeli producers must explicitly mark farm goods and other products that come from settlements built on Israeli occupied land, settlements the EU considers illegal. Israel has described the measure as "discriminatory" and damaging to peace efforts with Palestinians. But the European Commission says the move won't change existing laws ... While there is no EU official wording, goods must now carry the word "settlement" on the tag when sold in European shops. The Commission says the measure will give consumers the choice as to whether to buy or avoid Israeli settlement goods.

A religious Zionist cleric from a Jewish settlement on the West Bank told mourners on Saturday during the funeral of an Israeli father and son gunned down by Palestinian terrorists that the attacks in Paris were deserved due to what Europeans "did to our people 70 years ago." The quote from Dov Lior, the chief rabbi of the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, was first reported by the Walla! news agency. "The wicked ones in blood-soaked Europe deserve it for what they did to our people 70 years ago," Lior said. The controversial rabbi once wrote an approbation for a book called The King's Torah that was co-written in 2009 by radical settler figure Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, which permitted killing civilian non-Jews in times of war.
