Burlington City Council risks alienating Jewish community with vote on anti-Israel policy
By True North Reports, September 8, 2021
On Sept. 13, the Burlington City Council will vote on whether to support an anti-Israeli policy known as “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions,” or the BDS movement. A local Jewish temple has made clear that any such action against Israel will be viewed as a rejection of cooperation with the local Jewish community.
“Our board has voted in the past not to cooperate with organizations that support BDS,” a press release by the Temple Sinai in Burlington states.
The release summarizes this latest effort by the council to embrace anti-Israel politics.
“On September 13, between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, the Burlington City Council will be voting on a pro-BDS, strongly anti-Israel resolution. This would make Burlington the first municipality in New England to endorse BDS. The resolution also calls for an end to U.S. security assistance to Israel, our only democratic ally in the Middle East,” the Jewish group’s statement reads.
The temple’s vision statement notes support for Israel is a core value for members. “We believe that support for a safe and prosperous State of Israel is an important part of our Jewish identity,” it states.
The release also points to rhetoric from within the BDS movement that has a “strong antisemitic impulse,” including “attempts to reduce a complex issue into emotional slogans blaming only Jews.”
