It would appear the Jewish Caucus supports the BDS movement
California businesses are increasingly being pushed to participate in economic boycotts of anything to do with Israel. The insidious, growing boycott, divestment and sanctions movement absurdly claims that Israel practices apartheid.
Followers of the BDS movement paint Israel as vicious and evil, and say it should be discarded from American investments.
The BDS movement even calls for universities to divest from companies associated with Israel, and has perpetuated the growing anti-Semitism movement lurking on California college campuses. Attacking the State of Israel has become a convenient pretext for the expression of anti-Jewish bigotry.
An Israeli friend put it simply.
“Every Jew alive today should understand that it could have been HIS FAMILY that went up the chimneys at Auschwitz.
And Israel is the only guarantee for Jews that this never happens again.”
Participating in or cooperating with the economic boycotts of Israel is a violation of federal law. Any state agency or company that does business with the government cooperating with these boycotts could find itself with some serious legal and financial liabilities.
During the Holocaust there were a number of Jews who turned their fellow Jews over to the Nazis so they could share in the plunder. Some of them came out of the war quite rich and powerful.
