Palestinians ordered to stop buying from Jews

Friday, May 07, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Palestinian Economic Minister Hassan Abu Libdeh on Thursday threatened Palestinian Arabs who do their weekly grocery shopping at Jewish supermarkets in Judea and Samaria.

In an interview with Al-Watan TV, Libdeh took aim at the thousands of Palestinians who shop at the two Rami Levy grocery stores located in Sha'ar Binyamin in Samaria and Mishor Adumim in Judea.

Libdeh said that the Palestinian Authority knows the names of those who shop at Rami Levy, and suggested action could be taken against their families if they do not stop.

In addition to those who shop at the supermarkets, a number of Palestinian Arabs are also employed at the two Rami Levy locations.

The new shopping ban comes just days after the PA revealed that Palestinians who do not stop working for Jewish contractors would face up to five years in prison.
