A major Japanese department store has quietly removed a vendor specializing in wine from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights after protests from citizens' groups boycotting products from the region amid escalating violence there.Naturael said the wine is produced and imported legally and that Daimaru's decision could lead to anti-Israel sentiment.It said wine from elsewhere in Israel was sold at the fair and that Daimaru has no policy against Israeli products in general.Naturael CEO Yoshiyuki Hongo said he respects Daimaru's business decision, but that he regretted the store being targeted by a boycott campaign and sending the wrong message to other retailers.Hongo says his internet wine sales haven't been affected.
