Gov. Cuomo Delivers Blow to BDS Movement

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has issued the first executive order in the country, signed on Sunday before he marched in Manhattan’s Israel Day Parade, forcing state entities to drop investments linked to the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement.

The order instructs state agencies to compile a list of businesses and groups engaged in activities targeting Israel, directly or through a parent or subsidiary, and to divest all public funds from these entities.

The BDS movement was founded in 2005 to protest Israel’s actions toward Palestinians by boycotting Israeli products and companies.
