The Israeli-American Council and its partner organization, the Israeli-American Nexus, applaud New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order divesting all public funds from entities that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement. It sends a powerful message of support for our greatest ally in the Middle East and the democratic principles that our two nations share. We thank Governor Cuomo for his leadership, and encourage other public officials and state legislatures to join this effort against the BDS moment, which is spreading hate and discrimination across the United States targeting Israeli-Americans, Jewish Americans, and all friends of Israel.
