Illinois legislature passes bill to counter anti-Israeli boycotts

The state legislature of Illinois approved a bill aimed at cutting down on BDS:
Illinois lawmakers have passed a bill that would compel the state’s public-employee pension funds to unload investments in companies that participate in boycotts against Israel.

The measure unanimously passed the Illinois House of Representatives on Monday. The Illinois Senate approved it by a vote of 49-0 in April. Sponsors say they seek to counter efforts by an international pro-Palestinian campaign, known as the BDS movement (boycott, divestment and sanctions) to isolate the Jewish state.
There's more about this at the Wash. Post too. The state senators did the right thing. No sensible person should associate themselves with the BDS movement.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
