Legal Front To Oppose BDS

Legal Front To Oppose BDS

Re: “Strategy Emerging On Adelson BDS Effort” (Editor’s column, Dec. 11): The Maccabee Task Force is a good idea. However, a better use of these funds
would be to gather a team of lawyers and other legal experts and start
researching a legal avenue to fight organizational BDS.

There are laws on the
books against institutional discrimination as well as libel laws. I
personally would like to see a lawsuit brought upon a major organization
that promotes BDS that receives public funds, either in the form of tax
dollars or tax exemption, and have them lose that benefit. One major loss in
a court of law would send a message to academics and anyone else who is
considering such a move.
