HISTORY WAS MADE TODAY : South Carolina becomes first US state to take action against anti-Israel boycotts.....

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

WASHINGTON: South Carolina’s governor has signed into law a bill to stop efforts to boycott, divest and sanction Israel on Thursday afternoon, in a first for the nation on a statewide level.

The bill makes no mention of Israel directly, but prevents public entities from contracting with businesses engaging in the “boycott of a person or an entity based in or doing business with a jurisdiction with whom South Carolina can enjoy open trade.”.
