The New York City Council overwhelmingly approved a resolution condemning the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign on Wednesday, The New York Daily News reported.
The resolution, which rejected “all efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel and the global movement to boycott, divest from, and sanction the people of Israel,” passed by a vote of 40 to four with six abstentions.
While the symbolic resolution does not have the force of law, Councilman Andy Cohen (D-Bronx), one of the 35 sponsors of the measure, said, “We must take a stand as the home of the largest population of Jews outside the state of Israel and as a people who support the only true democracy in the Middle East, and the United States’ strongest ally in the region.”
The resolution passed following a prolonged debate that saw dozens of anti-Israel protesters ejected from the council chambers for continually disrupting the proceedings, including with shouts of “Zionism is racism,” “Fuck Israel,” and “Free Palestine.”I'm surprised these foul mouthed cry babies haven't come up with a new way to trash the Jewish state.
Palestinian Lives Matter, say?
