WASHINGTON, Aug. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Josh Block, CEO and President of The Israel Project, today issued the following statement:
“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie today joined a growing list of Democratic and Republican leaders across the country who are standing up against discrimination. Governor Christie signed into law a bill that will ensure New Jersey taxpayers do not subsidize the anti-Semitic effort to isolate Israel through economic warfare. This is a major victory against hatred, and The Israel Project commends Governor Christie and the leaders of the bipartisan effort in the New Jersey State House and Senate that helped pass this important legislation.”
More than a dozen states have acted decisively this year to reject the hateful effort to boycott Israel for political reasons, and The Israel Project has worked tirelessly to educate lawmakers and the media about the true nature of BDS.
