Spanish Tribunal: BDS Is Anti-Constitutional and Discriminatory (JTA)
Citing anti-discrimination laws, Spain’s Ministerio Fiscal constitutional tribunal recommended scrapping the city of Gijon’s motion calling for a boycott against Israel after the municipality was sued by ACOM, a Spanish pro-Israel lobby.
The tribunal said in its nonbinding recommendation that the objectives of the boycott “violate the constitution as well as the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights.”
The motion’s clauses “jeopardize the fundamental right to equality without discrimination on the bases of appearance, ethnicity and religion.”
Israel boycott motions have passed in four Spanish municipalities and failed in five in recent weeks.
