British Town Council Votes to Ban All Israeli Goods – Jerry Lewis (Jerusalem Post)
(dailyalert.org, Nov. 28, 2014)
The Leicester city council, which is controlled by Britain’s main opposition party, Labor, has instituted a ban of all Israeli goods despite Labor’s leader Ed Miliband saying he and his party oppose any boycotts.
About 19% of the city’s 330,000 residents are Muslims. The Jewish community numbers 295.
The resolution calling for a ban on Israeli goods was proposed by Councilor Mohammed Dawood and was passed by the city council on Nov. 13.
