OSJ Action Alert: August 10, 2017

Tell Congress to Oppose the
Israel Anti-Boycott Act

Support is growing in Congress for legislation that would penalize the use of economic measures to oppose Israeli settlements and policies towards Palestinians that are unjust and discriminatory.The Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S.720 & H.R. 1697) would shelter Israeli settlements from international accountability measures as well domestic political criticism.

We have the opportunity to stand in active solidarity with Christian communities in the Middle East as they face the challenge of maintaining a faithful Christian presence in increasingly volatile environments through nonviolent actions like boycott and divestment, but this bill would make it more challenging for individuals, businesses and organizations to do so.

Stand with our Christian brothers and sisters in Israel and the Palestinian territories by urging Congress to Oppose the Israel Anti-Boycott Act.
