👍🏻 H. Res. 246 Which would express the HOUSE Opposition to BDS 👍🏻
I recommend and support the passage of the House resolution 246 AKA “Opposing efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel and the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement targeting Israel which would express the House of Representatives’ opposition to the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement targeting Israel, including efforts to target American companies engaged in legal commerce, and all efforts to delegitimize Israel. If would affirm that the BDS Movement undermines the possibility for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by demanding concessions from only one party and encouraging Palestinians to reject negotiations in favor of international pressure. Additionally, it’d reaffirm the House’s strong support for a negotiated solution resulting in two states — a democratic Jewish State of Israel and a viable, democratic Palestinian state — living side-by-side in peace, security, and mutual recognition.
The boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel is counter-productive to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process because it demands concessions from only one side and encourages Palestinians to pursue international pressure instead of negotiating. The House should take a stand against the anti-Israel BDS movement even if it’s only a non-binding resolution.
