For the Love of Money: Territorial Discrimination

The day after Yom Kippur, Israel’s caretaker Prime Minister,Yair Lapid planned to sign an agreement that would make Israeli citizens all areas reclaimed by Israel in 1967 second-class citizens, at least in terms of their right to consume culture. The agreement that was supposed to be signed with the European Union would have officially and institutionally discriminated against everyone who lives in areas beyond the Green Line, including the Golan Heights, the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Jerusalem neighborhoods built after the 1967 Six-Day War.

In his article, Eugene Kontorovich makes a very strong case that this will set Israel back diplomatically and harm Israel’s supporters fighting BDS. It will harm Israel’s claims against its detractors and cause prohibited discrimination against about 800,000 Israeli citizens. and all this for a very small profit.
