The need to pass it unanimously couldn’t send a more stronger signal to the world that Jewish state bashing is not only wrong, it’s also not going to work, at all.
Nevada Introduces Anti-BDS Bill
Nevada is the latest state to introduce a bill against efforts to harm Israel, marking the latest step in the fight against BDS on the US state level.
Nevada Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchinson and pro-Israel activists introduced a new resolution seeking to counter the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The proposed Senate Bill 26 will seek to counter the discriminatory environment fostered by the BDS movement, according to the Israeli-American Coalition for Action (IAC for Action), which is promoting the measure. Nevada’s anti-BDS resolution will be similar to others passed by some 16 US states in recent years.
“We have a unique opportunity in the coming legislative session to send a powerful message that the hateful and discriminatory environment fostered by BDS has no place in Nevada,” said IAC for Action Chairman Shawn Evenhaim. “The IAC for Action is grateful to Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and the state legislators of Nevada for their courageous leadership on this issue.”
