B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International welcomes the unanimous approval of an anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions
(BDS) movement measure (131-0) in the Texas House of Representatives.
We are grateful for the overwhelming support for this measure in the Texas Legislature. It remains vitally important for government figures and legislative bodies to join the growing number of people who recognize the abject injustice of the BDS movement.
