New Orleans rescinds resolution favored by anti-Israel activists

(JTA) – The City of New Orleans rescinded a resolution, celebrated by anti-Israel activists, that would have prohibited investment with human rights violators.

Although the measure passed 5-0 on Jan. 11 did not mention Israel or the Palestinians, it was drafted by the New Orleans Palestinian Solidarity Committee.

Both pro-Palestinian supporters of the resolution and Israel supporters say the resolution could be used to target Israel as part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
