Cotton Praises Change Allowing Labeling of Israeli Goods

Press Release

Date: Nov. 19, 2020
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Foreign Affairs

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the statement below after the administration announced that "all producers within areas where Israel exercises the relevant authorities -- most notably  Area C  under the Oslo Accords  --  will be required to  mark  goods as  'Israel',  'Product of Israel', or "Made in Israel'  when exporting to the United States."

Yesterday, Senator Cotton sent a letter with Senate colleagues urging the change in U.S. customs policy.

"Anti-Israel demagogues like the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions gang have long weaponized country-of-origin rules in their efforts to delegitimize Israel and discriminate against its goods. I commend the administration for heeding my call to end the discriminatory treatment of Israeli goods produced in Judea and Samaria, so they may be labeled properly, "Made in Israel.'"
