Texas governor signs anti-BDS bill

For Israel's Independence Day, Texas governor Greg Abbott had a good deed to offer when he signed a law against BDS into motion:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed on Tuesday -- Israel's day of independence -- a robust anti-boycott Israel bill into law. The bill bans state entities from engaging in business with organizations and companies that support BDS.

The new legislation is a shot into the arm of the anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement in the US.

“As Israel’s No. 1 trading partner in the United States, Texas is proud to reaffirm its support for the people of Israel and we will continue to build on our historic partnership... Anti-Israel policies are anti-Texas policies, and we will not tolerate such actions against an important ally," stated the governor at the signing ceremony.

"The measure Gov. Abbott signed today became law with bilateral support because Texas stands with its business partners and for free trade. In her 69 years, Israel has become a thriving, burgeoning state by enjoying and sharing the fruits of individual freedom and a pioneering spirit for innovation and entrepreneurism," Charles Kaufman, who chairs B’nai B’rith’s International Center for Human Rights and Public Policy, told The Jerusalem Post. Kaufman, who resides in Austin, testified on behalf of the anti-BDS bill.

Kaufman added, "Advocates of BDS would do well to learn from the robust business relationship Texas enjoys with the State of Israel. The path to peace is not through hatred, false narratives, boycotts or terrorism. States like Texas won't fall for such nonsense. It is only fitting that this bill becomes law in the same week that the Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce has arranged for Israeli experts to present a forum at Texas State University on how the state can leverage Israeli water technology to meet future water challenges in Texas."
We owe a lot of thanks to Texas for helping in the fight against evil.
