US House approves motion opposing anti-Israel boycotts

A House of Representatives majority of 398 to 17 with five abstentions Tuesday approved a resolution opposing the anti-Israeli Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement sponsored by Rep. Bradley Schneider (D-IL). The motion included opposition to “efforts to target American companies that are engaged in commercial activities that are legal under United States law, and all efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel.”

It also affirms that the BDS movement “undermines the possibility for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by demanding concessions of one party alone and encouraging the Palestinians to reject negotiations in favor of international pressure.”

The resolution “urges Israelis and Palestinians to return to direct negotiations as the only way to achieve an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

    BDS is an unfair and discriminatory idea based on a moral double standard which is essentially anti-Semitic.

      Apart from this, the juice must be allowed to develop separately in an militant separatism predicated on the principles of ethnic chauvinism.
