Comerica bank hosts an account owned by an anti-Israel organization. We must urge them to shut it down.
The International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL) promotes boycotts on the Jewish State.
IADL states on a pro-Palestinian website that it “supports the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement to boycott Israeli products as well as businesses which support the Occupation, and to sanction Israel for its crimes.”
The BDS movement promotes financial, academic and cultural boycotts against Israel, ostensibly as a nonviolent struggle against the so-called “Israeli occupation.” Critics say its activities are a modern form of anti-Semitism and that its true objective is to destroy the State of Israel.
We must operate in any way to stop this movement.
Renowned Harvard University jurist Alan Dershowitz told The Jerusalem Post that the IADL is “anti-democratic to its core and supportive of terrorism and repression. No decent person or institution should be associated with or supportive of its anti-democratic agenda and actions.”
Prof. Gerald Steinberg, head of the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, told the Post that the IADL is a member of the NGO network that leads the demonization campaigns targeting Israel.
“They use pseudo-legal claims to deny Israel the right to defend its population from terror,” he said.
IADL’s website solicits donations and lists accounts with Comerica Bank in Michigan.
We must demand that Comerica close IADL’s account.
Banks around the world have shut down BDS-linked accounts. Comerica should do so as well.
Urge Comerica Bank to Shut Down the BDS-Linked Account!
