Yesha Council Chairman Dany Dayan noon dispatched an urgent letter to Attorney General, Attorney Yehuda Weinstein, asking him to investigate the legality of contracts and the actions of contract suppliers of Israeli companies taking part in building the Palestinian city Rawabi after this morning it was revealed that under those under contract are committed to boycotting products and resources produced in Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and Judea and Samaria are defined in the contract as occupied territory. "
According to reports this morning more than twenty Israeli companies signed a contractual document which they undertake: "Regardless of any other provision of this Agreement or any other place, the seller can not use and/or hire a product and/or services and/or resources are produced and/or originating in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria in order to effect some purpose of this Agreement or in connection with that ... These areas include, but are not limited to, the occupied East Jerusalem, the 'occupied West Bank', Gaza Strip and the occupied Golan Heights, occupied or any part thereof, and any area or another area to apply the above definition. "
In the appeal to the Attorney General, Dayan writes that in the establishment of Rawabi project many Israeli companies are participating in the construction, infrastructure, equipment, building materials, consulting and the attached documents include contract clauses that it commits Israeli companies thgat want to take part in the project with the developer, Bayti Real Estate Company based in El Birah. These sections ban the companies to commit resources to products originating in what is called a "Israeli settlements" with the details above.
Yesha Council Chairman further writes to Weinstein: "signatures of Israeli companies on such contract have a public aspect to me which very serious. This despicable behavior by Israeli companies ready to call parts of their country and their capital as "occupied" and confiscate other Israeli companies to produce financial gain from the other party. It's shameful surrender to the Arab boycott Israeli companies join him in practice."
Dayan added: "But there are also doubts the legality of signatures of Israeli companies such section, discriminatory Israeli workers and companies due to their residence or place of business management. It is severe enough that the PA has done so for many months and Israel is silent. But it is unbearable that Israeli companies themselves would do so and that the Israeli legal system let it be done."
