Living in California, I don’t often have positive things to say about our political leaders in Sacramento. Dominated by Democrats, they never stop passing new bills that extend governmental control over our lives as well as more taxes.
There is one bit of good news, however. Assembly Bill AB 2844 was passed and signed by Governor Jerry Brown. It strikes a blow against the insidious Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, a movement that has infected one university campus after another, school term after school term. Make no mistake: BDS is dedicated to destroying the Jewish state of Israel – because it is Jewish.
Not surprisingly, pro-Palestinian students in California have reacted with outrage. At UC Irvine, the Muslim Student Union and Students for Justice in Palestine (having no Jewish events to disrupt on campus) have taken to calling in to the governor’s office and other Sacramento legislators to voice their displeasure.
Contrary to their claims, they are not losing their free speech rights to advocate against Israel. The bill applies to companies doing business with California.
Sorry, Kids. It’s too late. It’s a done deal.
