The Austrian parliament unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday rejecting the BDS movement and all forms of anti-Semitism, including Israel-related anti-Semitism.

The resolution, which was initiated by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s center-right People’s Party, was first introduced last December. The resolution condemns the BDS movement as anti-Semitic and calls on the Austrian federal government to withhold federal funds from and avoid cooperation with organizations tied to the BDS movement.

“Just now sharply condemned BDS movement (boycott against Israel) in the Austrian Parliament UNANIMOUSLY and stated that BDS in Austria should not be supported in any way. A strong and symbolic statement by the Austrian Parliament against anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism,” Martin Endelberg, a lawmaker with the Austrian People’s Party, tweeted after the resolution’s passage.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Israel Katz called the passage a “decisive statement” that could serve as an example for other European countries, reported i24 News.
