ACLU blasts pro-Israel bill (CIDI

Mat Staver,
Christians in Defense of Israel

The radical ACLU has come out against pro-Israel legislation designed to crack down on economic boycotts against Israel. But with your help, Christians in Defense of Israel is urging Congress to pass the Israel Anti-Boycott Act. It is vital legislation to stop the United Nations economic war on Israel!

The ACLU contends the Israel Anti-Boycott Act threatens “free speech” and is unconstitutional, an allegation vociferously denied by scores of U.S. lawmakers who support the measure. In fact, the bill will counter the BDS (boycotts, divestment, and sanctions) movement and protect American companies from being blacklisted by the U.N.

 

In 2016, the anti-Israel UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) passed a resolution calling for the creation of a database–read “blacklist”–of companies that operate in the so-called “occupied territories” in alleged violation of “international law and UN decisions.” 

The U.N.’s goal is to wage economic war on Israel, suppress business investment, and cripple the Jewish state’s economy while advancing the Palestinian agenda.

The UNHRC recently announced that it has identified 206 firms doing business with Israelis who live or work in the disputed West Bank–biblical Judea and Samaria. While it has not yet published the list, it says it will do so in the future — an open threat that has already scared some businesses away.

Because of the intimidation, some businesses have already indicated that they will cease their operations inside of Israel rather than be blacklisted internationally.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley condemned the UNHRC report as one more example of its “anti-Israel obsession.”

The Israel Anti-Boycott Act will protect U.S. businesses and individuals from being pressured into an economic boycott of Israel by international governmental organizations, namely the U.N.

This bill will go a long way to stop the UN’s economic war on Israel . . . but only if it gets passed.

And that’s why I’m writing you today.

We are calling on the House and Senate to approve the Israel Anti-Boycott Act and protect Israel from UN-sponsored economic warfare.

Congressional action is needed before financial damage is done to American organizations conducting business in Israel and real harm is done to the Israeli economy.

The U.N.’s actions are misleading, harmful, and potentially crippling to the Israeli economy. 

That’s why we are calling on Congress and President Trump to PASS AND SIGN THE ISRAEL ANTI-BOYCOTT ACT. The UN’s aggression toward Israel must be stopped!
