US Senators Vote Down Anti-BDS, Pro-Israeli bill


USCPR Policy Director Josh Ruebner is quoted in this Ma’an News Agency article about the voting down in the US Senate of S.1, “Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019,” an anti-boycott bill that targets those who stand up for Palestinian rights.

“Today’s vote by Senate Democrats to prevent consideration of S.1, a bill that would encourage states to punish people who boycott for Palestinian rights and authorize $38 billion of weapons to Israel, is an important step in the right direction in changing US policy to support freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people.”
