North Carolina became the latest US state whose legislature has passed a measure opposing the anti-Israel BDS movement. The bill bars the state from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. The “Divestment from Companies That Boycott Israel” bill that passed last week by both houses of the General Assembly has been sent to state Gov. Roy Cooper for his signature.

Among the states that have passed anti-BDS legislation in recent months are: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Lev Haolam thanks North Carolina for taking action to stop BDS from harming Israel. We hope to report on more states in the US joining the fight against the BDS movement. The Lev Haolam team also wishes our American friends a happy July 4th.
