It’s time to calm down. Israeli exports are not affected by the present economic boycott, nor will they be affected in the future.
This is not because certain European consumer groups are not trying – it is because the unique nature of Israel’s exports simply does not allow for it.
Many Israeli companies operate in niche areas. Moreover, 95% of Israel’s exports do not involve individual end consumers but rather business-to-business trade, with firms that are only interested in the best product or service at the most competitive price.
