TV: McDonald's refuses to open in West Bank settlement
- 0

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- McDonald's Israel, a franchise of the 

American fast food chain, has rejected an offer to open a 

restaurant in the Jewish settlement of Ariel in the occupied 

West Bank, media reported on Wednesday.

Israeli television stations said the company had rejected for 


"ideological reasons" an offer to locate in a mall under 

construction in Ariel that is due to open at the beginning of 

next year.

Housing Minister Uri Ariel, a member of the far-right Jewish 


Home party, reacted by calling on Israelis to boycott 

McDonald's, the reports said.

"Those who boycott should know that they will be 


boycotted," he was quoted as saying.
