Israel recently announced a ban on the sale of fur in fashion trade. The decision was praised by the International Anti-Fur Coalition, which termed Israel the ‘first entire nation’ to impose such a ban. “Commerce in animal fur, imports and exports, will be banned except for the needs of research, study or certain religious traditions,” the Israeli environment ministry said.

The ministerial decree is to take effect in six months.

“On this historic day, Israel has set an ethical precedent and hopefully other nations shall join them and ban the sale of barbaric and cruel blood fashion fur,” the Anti-Fur coalition wrote on its Facebook page.

Some Orthodox Jews Fur wear hats called ‘shtreimels’ that use fur.

Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called for other countries to follow suit on health grounds, a global newswire reported.

“Cramming sick and stressed animals together in unsanitary conditions on fur farms creates the perfect breeding ground for deadly diseases,” it added.
