Advertisement in New Jersey Newspaper Thanking SWU and Others for Supporting HR 246

This ad was placed in "Town Topics," Princeton, New Jersey's weekly community newspaper on September 4, 2019.


We, the undersigned, thank and applaud

the following organizations for their endorsement of House Resolution 246, a congressional resolution passed by the United States House of Representatives opposing the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement which targets Israel and which seeks to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist.

This important resolution passed with overwhelming bipartisan Congressional support in a vote of 398-17 and complements the resolution by governors from all 50 states against BDS.

The founder of the Global BDS Movement has denied the right of the Jewish People in their homeland, saying, “We oppose a Jewish State in any part of Palestine.”

We must call out BDS for what it is: a movement dedicated to destroying the Jewish State — the lone democracy in the Middle East and America’s strongest ally in the region.

It is important to note that House Resolution 246 affirms the constitutional right of all United States citizens to free speech, including the right to protest or criticize the policies of the United States or the State of Israel.

We urge the greater Princeton community to stand united in its continued fight against anti-Semitism and against the BDS movement and to oppose efforts to delegitimize the right of the State of Israel to exist.
