South Carolina, under the leadership of Governor Nikki Haley, became the first US state to take action against anti-Israel boycotts. United with Israel asked its supporters to thank the governor and the response was overwhelming!
South Carolina, under the leadership of Governor Nikki Haley, became the first US state to take action against anti-Israel boycotts. The state law now bars public entities from contracting with companies that boycott “based on race, color, religion, gender or national origin.” While Israel is not mentioned in the text, the premise of the law is that the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement discriminates against Israel and damages South Carolina’s economy.
In response to the pro-Israel legislation adopted by South Carolina, as well as United with Israel’s Call to Action, hundreds of UWI supporters expressed their appreciation to Governor Nikki Haley on Facebook while others wrote to the State House to directly convey their thanks.
We are confident that other states will follow South Carolina’s lead. It is imperative that we continue to show support for South Carolina’s important pro-Israel stance. It will help to encourage other states to oppose anti-Israel boycotts.
