The Trump administration plans to release a list of organizations that support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), a senior Trump administration official told JNS.
The groups are still in the works, according to the official.
This step comes after the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared last month that the US will label the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign as “anti-Semitic” and would withdraw funding from groups that support the BDS movement.
“We will immediately take steps to identify organizations that engage in hateful BDS conduct and withdraw US government support for such groups. The time is right,” Pompeo stated.
Aside from government-funding issues, the purpose behind the list is to issue a “public condemnation” of the BDS movement, according to the official.
The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
