All 50 U.S. Governors Sign Anti-BDS Pledge(JTA)
All 50 U.S. governors have signed a pledge to reject the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel.
Organized by the American Jewish Committee, the statement declares that “the goals of the BDS movement are antithetical to our values and the values of our respective states, and our support for Israel as a vital U.S. ally, important economic partner and champion of freedom.”
At least 16 states have passed legislation targeting BDS, banning state entities from investing in businesses that boycott Israel.
