'Christian Tidal Wave About to Crash on BDS'

(INN) The Christian Zionist NPO Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN) on Monday welcomed the adoption of anti-BDS resolutions it has pushed for at the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and New York State Assembly.

In the New York vote adopting the resolution that aims to fight the economic boycott movement against the Jewish state, PJTN President Laurie Cardoza-Moore traveled to the State Assembly to personally present Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky with a draft resolution.

PJTN activists in Pennsylvania were also instrumental in having the draft resolution passed there as well, after Tennessee in April passed anti-BDS legislature followed by a similar move in Indiana.

But PJTN announced that this is just the beginning, as supporters of the group in 34 states throughout America have already started working to prepare anti-BDS motions in a wave of support for Israel.

"The Jew-hating BDS movement is about to be hit by a tidal wave of support for Israel and the Jewish People," Cardoza-Moore said. "As proud Christian Zionists that represent millions of believers worldwide, we will stand as a firewall around the Jewish People and will ensure that no form of genocidal anti-Semitism be tolerated."

"We call upon all Christians worldwide to join our movement and let the people of Israel know that they are not alone in their struggle. Mark my words: By the end of this year, what began as a pro-Israel resolution in Tennessee will be a national movement across the USA and around the world. We have already recruited 34 states, with the recent addition of New York and Pennsylvania and this is only the beginning."

Last month Cardoza-Moore visited Jerusalem to present Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein with a framed copy of the original Tennessee resolution.

While PJTN activists played a key role in the Pennsylvania resolution, the motion was drafted by Pennsylvania Representative Matt Baker.

Baker noted, "the Pennsylvania House of Representatives unanimously approved a resolution I authored condemning economic, social, cultural and other boycotts of Israel and growing incidents of anti-Semitism."

"The international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign’s call for academic boycotts have been condemned by many of our nation’s largest academic associations, more than 250 university presidents and many other leading scholars as a violation of the bedrock principle of academic freedom. I am proud to have Pennsylvania join the call for an end to these types of anti-Semitic incidents."
