AIPAC ISRAEL UPDATE Feb 9, 2018
Sens. Cardin and Portman Condemn
Anti-Israel U.N. Report On February 1, U.S. Sens. Ben
Cardin (D-MD) and Rob Portman (R-OH) issueda joint statement denouncing a recent
U.N. Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner report that targeted
companies that conduct business with Israel, but deferred listing any of them
by name. The anti-Israel report includes detailed steps on its investigation of
more than 200 companies, including 22 American companies, laying the groundwork
to release a blacklist to boycott such companies in the future. “We strongly
oppose the ongoing efforts to compile a blacklist of companies that do business
in Israeli-controlled territories,” the senators wrote. In 2017, Sens. Cardin
and Portman, along with Reps. Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Juan Vargas (D-CA) in
the U.S. House of Representatives, spearheaded the Israel Anti-Boycott Act
(H.R. 1697 and S. 720). This bipartisan legislation would combat the boycott of
Israel in the international arena by expanding existing U.S. anti-boycott laws
to international organizations like the United Nations and the European Union.
“This bipartisan legislation protects U.S. companies from unsanctioned
international boycotts and preserves the space for direct negotiations between
Israelis and Palestinians.” The senator added that they “oppose all efforts by
international organizations seeking to undermine prospects for resuming
negotiations for a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians.”
