  • U.S. Congress Passes Landmark Anti-BDS Law – Rebecca Shimoni Stoil
    Congress passed a trade bill containing provisions opposing the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel on Wednesday. The bill requires U.S. negotiators to make rejection of BDS a principal trade objective in negotiations with the EU in order to discourage European governments from participating in BDS activities.
    “The recent wave of boycotts originating in Europe…demands a robust response from the United States. This is that response,” said Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.). “If you want free trade with the United States, you can’t boycott Israel.”  (Times of Israel)
