Florida to issue ‘Florida Stands with Israel’ license plates

20

Governor Ron DeSantis is a great friend to Israel and the Jewish people. He is also perhaps the best governor in America, contrary to what the enemy press says. DeSantis will play a significant role in helping the POTUS win Florida in November. He will almost certainly take a run at the presidency in 2024.

Florida will now be issuing specialty “Florida Stands with Israel” license plates for those who wish to support the Jewish state throughout the Sunshine State.

Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation (HB 1135) on Friday, before Rosh Hashanah, which authorized the creation of the special license plate.

The Israeli-American Council (IAC) lauded the “heartwarming expression of solidarity,” saying that it “affirms the strong bond between the State of Florida’s citizens and the Jewish State of Israel.”

“This kind of warmth is why Florida has always been a leading destination for Israeli-Americans,” said  IAC Board Member and IAC for Action Board Chairman Shawn Evenhaim. “This gesture celebrates a long and close relationship. Florida and Israel share many ties, including bilateral trade, common values and leadership in cutting-edge fields that have a quality of life impact for all citizens,” he said.

“Florida has been a leader over the years in the fight against anti-Jewish hatred and discrimination – for example, its groundbreaking anti-BDS law and codification this past year of the IHRA definition of antisemitism,” Evenhaim said. “We applaud and sincerely appreciate this meaningful expression of solidarity and are pleased that the Israeli-American community can play a part in support of these efforts. Thank you, Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature. Shana Tova U’Metuka [a good and sweet year].”

The design of the license plate is still up for debate, however, and Florida will host a 30-day design contest which will receive submissions by the general public. The contest itself is sponsored by the IAC and coordinated by Artists for Israel.

The judging panel will include lead sponsors of the legislation: senators Aaron Bean and Lauren Book, representatives JW Grant,  Kionne McGhee and Scott Plakon, and Bal Harbour Mayor Gabe Groisman.
