A blunt and chilling warning from New York governor, Andrew Cuomo.
Those who exercise their conscience to boycott Israel will pay a price, if New York has any say in the matter.
I recently signed the first executive order by a U.S. governor to help protect Israel from these pernicious efforts to punish it economically. My order ensures that no state agency or authority will engage in or promote any investment activity that would further the harmful and discriminatory BDS campaign. New York will identify institutions and companies, with the list made available to the public and updated regularly, that engage in boycotts, divestment or sanctions activity targeting Israel, either directly or through a parent or subsidiary. All state funds will then be divested from such entities.
If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.
It sounds as though New York is not only going to throw out the 1st Amendment but it's beginning to work up an enemies list. Shouldn't be long before the Tories are calling on Justin to follow suit.
