BDS movement condemns Israel's decision to prevent U.S. Congresswomen's visit
The Palestinian-led BDS movement condemns the far-right Israeli government’s McCarthyite decision to prevent Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar from visiting the Occupied Palestinian Territory over their support for Palestinian freedom. We call for cutting US military aid to Israel.
Israel’s far-right government, with Trump’s collusion, has again put itself on par with apartheid South Africa in the past, and other rogue regimes in the present.
As its decades-old regime of military occupation and apartheid is exposed to the world, and as the BDS movement for Palestinian rights continues to grow worldwide, Israel is desperately intensifying its McCarthyite war on BDS and on people of conscience who stand in solidarity with our pursuit of freedom, justice and equality.
We salute Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, and we call for escalating pressure on Congress to implement the Leahy Law, which conditions US military aid to other governments on their respect for human rights, by cutting US military aid to Israel.
