Congress Advances Law to Protect US Businesses from BDS Pressure

国会通过法律保护美国企业不受BDS压力

Congress is promoting a bill that aims to protect US businesses from pressure by the BDS movement. The move was warmly welcomed by a coalition of pro-Israel organizations.

The US House of Representatives last week introduced the Export Administration Anti-Discrimination Act (EAADA), which aims to protect US businesses from pressure by the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement, a move that was warmly welcomed by a coalition of pro-Israel organizations.

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) introduced the bill on Wednesday with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) as a co-sponsor.

The bill will update the anti-discrimination protections codified in the Export Administration Act of 1979 (EAA), which prevents foreign entities from pressuring US corporations to comply with boycotts of US allies, including the State of Israel. It will also update and strengthen enforcement of the 1979 law by creating a private right of action for those harmed by unlawful boycotts.

Just as the 1979 legislation protected US companies from pressure to engage in the Arab League Boycott, the 2018 EAADA will protect companies from discrimination and targeting at the hands of the BDS campaign, a more recent effort to demonize and delegitimize the Jewish state and its supporters.

BDS “has weaponized economic activity to purposefully inflict financial harm on Israel,” DeSantis said. “Americans and our allies alike deserve the freedom to conduct business without the perpetual threat of discriminatory boycotts. US policy should reflect strong opposition to those who seek to isolate our allies and cause economic damage to countries such as Israel.”

The 2018 EAADA will “strengthen current law and modernize important anti-boycott protections,” he added.

“There has been a disturbing trend here in the United States of groups pressuring US businesses and universities to not do business with or in Israel,” Goodlatte noted. “Israel is one of our closest allies, and we must ensure that our laws protect American companies conducting business with all of our allies.”

The World Jewish Congress (WJC), The Lawfare Project, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Israeli-American Coalition for Action (IAC for Action) and a range of other pro-Israel organizations applauded this pro-Israel legislative move.

国会正在推动一项旨在保护美国企业免受BDS运动压力的法案。这一举动受到亲以色列组织联盟的热烈欢迎。

通过:与以色列工作人员团结

美国众议院上周介绍了出口管理反歧视法(EAADA),该法旨在保护美国企业免受反以色列BDS(抵制,撤资和制裁)运动的压力,此举受到亲以色列组织的联盟。

国会议员Ron DeSantis(R-FL)周三与众议院司法委员会主席Bob Goodlatte(R-VA)共同提案。

该法案将更新1979年“出口管理法”(EAA)所规定的反歧视保护措施,该措施可防止外国实体向美国公司施压以抵制包括以色列国在内的美国盟友的抵制。它还将更新并加强对1979年法律的执行,为非法抵制行为者创建私人诉权。

正如1979年的立法保护美国公司免于参与阿联盟抵制行动的压力一样,2018年EAADA将保护公司免受歧视和针对BDS运动的攻击,这是最近努力将犹太国家及其支持者妖魔化和非法化。

BDS“已经武装化了经济活动,有目的地给以色列造成了经济损失,”DeSantis说。 “美国人和我们的盟友都应该有自由开展业务,而不受歧视性抵制的永久威胁。美国的政策应反映强烈反对那些试图孤立我们的盟友并对以色列等国家造成经济损失的人。“

他补充说,2018年EAADA将“加强现行法律并实现重要的反抵制保护现代化”。

“Goodlatte指出:”美国的这些组织迫使美国企业和大学不要在以色列开展业务或在以色列开展业务,这一趋势令人不安。 “以色列是我们最亲密的盟友之一,我们必须确保我们的法律保护美国公司与我们所有的盟友开展业务。”

世界犹太人大会(WJC),法律项目,美国主要犹太人组织主席会议,以色列 – 美国行动联盟(IAC for Action)以及一系列其他亲以色列组织赞扬这种亲以色列立法行动。
