Israeli flagA pro-Israel activist is praising the Ohio legislature for passing a resolution condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the state of Israel.   

The Ohio General Assembly approved House Resolution 10, a significant step in countering the increasing acts of anti-Semitism, including anti-Israel activity and the shutting down the free speech, on University campuses in the state.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, has helped get similar resolutions passed in other states. She says the first priority is education.  

"First, we have to educate the state legislature and also educate the taxpaying citizens of the state of Ohio," she says. "And that's what the resolution does."

After passing the resolution, however, she says, it is important to move forward with an anti-BDS bill known as the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act.

"It will use the U.S. State Department's definition of what constitutes anti-Semitic incidents," she explains. "Then the next goal is to shut these groups down, demand that they be shut down because they violate the constitutional rights and the civil rights of students on Ohio state campuses."
