Florida Becomes Fifth State to Pass an Anti-BDS Law
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family. The state of Florida is the fifth state in the nation to pass an “anti-BDS law.” What is a BDS law? It is standing for “boycott, divest, and sanction” with reference to Israel. Florida has passed a law that it will not boycott, not divest, or not sanction Israel. Mat Staver: Matt, in addition to Liberty Counsel, we also have the outreach of Christians in Defense of Israel and we have the outreach, Covenant Journey, which takes Christian, college-aged students to Israel. So they get a chance to see first hand ancient and modern Israel. It’s actually stupid, frankly, it’s ignorant to want to boycott, divest, or sanction Israel. Israel has an amazing modern history of being one of the most inventive, technologically advanced nations on the planet and to boycott, divest, and sanction is only going to harm you. It’s only going to harm your country. I am very proud that Florida has passed this anti-BDS law Matt Barber: What’s a shame is that Florida had to do this. In addition to Florida we know that Tennessee, New York, Indiana, and Pennsylvania have passed similar laws. But there is a growing movement, Mat, of individuals, and they’re being propagandized, many of them young people being propagandized by their hippie professors, their hard-core leftist, cultural marxist professors, pro-Islamic, Muslim-sympathizing professors…
