The news around town has lately been about the latest Palestinian boycott against Settler products. The PA is now planning a series of fines and jail time against any Arab caught stocking or selling products made in the Settlements.
Apparently they unofficially backed down from preventing Arabs from working in the Settlements once they realized that their entire economy would crash and families would starve if they enforced that.
With Shavuot tonight, this whole boycott of Settler products (now how exactly does that promote peace?) kind of reminds me last year's Bikkurim activities at Shimon Peres's house.
There was an event last year where farmers from the Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association brought their first fruits to the President's house.
'When the farmers were asked whether there was any produce from across the Green Line, the reply was an emphatic "no."'
Not much difference as far as I can see.
