The Israeli-American Nexus (IAX) applauds West Hollywood for being the first city to pass a resolution in support of the California Combating BDS Act of 2016 (AB 2844). When enacted, this legislation will prohibit public entities from contracting with companies engaged in discriminatory business practices in furtherance of a boycott against Israel. The IAX firmly believes that public entities in California should not be forced to subsidize discrimination advocated by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israeli-Americans, Jewish Americans, or others who choose to freely associate with Israel.

We commend Mayor Meister, Mayor Pro-Tem Heilman, Councilmember Duran, Councilmember Horvath, and Councilmember D’Amico for taking a principled stand in favor of tolerance against well organized and insidious discrimination. The IAX will continue to work with leaders in West Hollywood to strengthen the diversity and inclusiveness of the community while addressing our most pressing challenges.
