Sixteen U.S. states have passed or are close to passing anti-BDS legislation. Thus far, these efforts have been largely successful. We offer the following recommendations moving forward:
- The success of anti-BDS legislation and its momentum should be utilized to create a new and modern narrative for reinforcing Israel’s legitimacy.
- Continuing legislative efforts should be encouraged, but limited to states where success is expected. In states where such legislation is in doubt, the boomerang effect must be considered.
