Where is the Coverage? Greece and Hungary Reject EU's Settlement Labelling Guidelines

On Nov. 11, the European Commissioner formally called on all EU countries to label the"origin of goods from the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967.�?

Israel condemned the EU's guidelines as discriminatory, pointing out that it amounts to a call for boycott, and halted diplomatic contacts with EU representatives about the peace process.

All this was widely reported in the mainstream media. But far less attention was given to the fact that Hungary's Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó criticized the EU's labelling call, calling it an "inefficient instrument" that is "irrational" and does not promote a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. And aside from the Jewish and Israeli press, few reported that Greece too indicated that it would defy the settlement labelling guidelines. Read more about it here.
