Dozens of Israeli lawmakers have signed a petition calling for a boycott of Israeli companies that have signed contracts to help build a new Palestinian city. Sponsored by the Land of Israel Lobby, the petition was signed by 48 lawmakers after being circulated Monday. Right-wing lawmakers and half of the Kadima Party signed, The Jerusalem Post reported. The petition comes in response to a contract signed by 20 Israeli companies to help build Rawabi, in the West Bank near Ramallah, in which they agree not to use raw materials, products or services originating in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, as well as in eastern Jerusalem or on the Golan Heights, which the Palestinian Authority also defines as settlements.
