Israeli trade with the Muslim world

Haaretz yesterday had an interesting article on Israeli companies selling (often through third parties) to countries in the Arab and Muslim world with which it has no diplomatic relations - The badly kept secret of Israel's trade throughout the Muslim world.

I discovered today that this trade goes both ways. I went shopping this morning for Shabbat at a makolet and vegetable market in Jerusalem and discovered that they were selling juice made in the United Arab Emirates: by a company named Masafi. This juice is from a product line called "Zesty Citrus."

 So much for the Arab boycott!
