Florida State Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla and State House Representative Lori Berman, together with the organization Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, drafted a bi-partisan resolution to condemn BDS and halt the increasing incidents of anti-Semitism on Florida campuses. Thank them for their efforts!
Florida became the fifth state in the US to introduce a resolution to confront the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement when it passed a law on December 21, similar to the first anti-BDS legislation introduced in Tennessee last April.
By doing so, Florida has joined Tennessee, New York, Indiana and Pennsylvania. Another 35 states are reportedly considering similar legislation.
“Florida and Israel have enjoyed a long history of friendship and are great allies of our shared Democratic values”, stated Proclaiming Justice to the Nations’ (PJTN) Board Chairman, Stanley G. Tate.
PJTN, a Christian pro-Israel advocacy organization, has been instrumental in promoting anti-BDS legislation in several states.
Tate worked closely with Florida State Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla and State House Representative Lori Berman in drafting the bi-partisan resolution to condemn BDS and halt the increasing incidents of anti-Semitism on Florida campuses.
“The time has come for elected state leaders to step forward and condemn the hate speech and targeting of pro-Israel and Jewish students on college campuses that has been fueled by the BDS campaign,” PJTN said in a statement.
Thank Florida State Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla and State House Representative Lori Berman!
