Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday compared the European Union's decision to label goods from Israeli settlements to the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses.The EU move is a set of guidelines for labeling products from Jewish settlements in the Palestinian territories and east Jerusalem as well as the Golan Heights, all occupied by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War.Trade from settlements accounts for only a small portion of commerce between the European Union and Israel, but carries important symbolic weight.The Palestine Liberation Organization said the EU decision was a positive step but that it did not go far enough, calling for a ban on such commerce.
