Massachusetts is one of the few states that cannot seem to get an anti-BDS bill passed into law. Now that our legislature has failed to pass a bill, I sincerely hope that our governor would consider doing what the governors in New York, Wisconsin and Maryland did when their legislatures failed – and issue an executive order.
Massachusetts reaps huge benefits economically from its ties to Israel and vice versa. This step would be one more important assurance that our mutual ties are sealed and that Israel will not be discriminated against by those who are seeking her destruction and delegitimization.
Governor Baker, the pro-Israel and Jewish community would genuinely appreciate it if you will take this into serious consideration.
