PRO-ISRAEL AMERICA PRAISES PASSAGE OF ANTI-BDS RESOLUTION
JULY 23, 2019, WASHINGTON DC – Today, Jeff Mendelsohn issued the following statement on behalf of Pro-Israel America, in response to the passage of H. Res. 246, Opposing efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel and the Global Boycott Divestment, and Sanctions Movement targeting Israel:
“We applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for its overwhelming, bipartisan passage of H. Res. 246. to combat the BDS movement – a discriminatory effort that seeks to undermine and destroy Israel. We believe the BDS movement is anti-peace, promotes anti-Semitism and is contrary to the interests of the United States, and we are glad to see bipartisan leadership in Congress to take a stand against it.
While a small number in Congress voiced support for BDS and its anti-Israel goals, passage of this resolution with broad support on both sides of the aisle reaffirms that the U.S.-Israel relationship has strong, bipartisan support from members of Congress and the American people.”
Pro-Israel America works to strengthen support for the U.S.-Israel relationship through promoting and supporting the election of pro-Israel candidates to federal office, regardless of party; educating voters about significant races and candidates’ support for Israel; and creating a simple, accessible online portal where members can make pro-Israel campaign contributions.
