The BDS movement, that in Spain also seeks the institutional boycott of the Jewish State from local governments, is encountering the vigorous response of the Spanish civil society and the rejection of many political representatives that oppose opening in Spain a economic warfare front against Israel.
It is ever more evident that the groups that support the antisemitic BDS, glorifying Palestinian violence, are the same ones that, from the extreme left, are trying to pervert the Spanish constitutional system and its democratic institutions.
ACOM would like to recognize the political forces of the Santa Coloma de Gramanet (Socialist Party and Popular Party -liberal conservative – ) that demonstrated their understanding of the issue and moral compass and rejected a proposal to boycott Israel, it’s companies and citizens and any other Spaniard supporting the Jewish state. Santa Coloma de Gramenet has 117.153 inhabitants, in Catalonia, north-east of Spain.
The declaration was put forward by Podemos – Gent d’Esquerres-ICV-EUiA (a Chavist contender in Spain national elections, economically supported by Venezuela and Iran).
ACOM, again, played a central role, educating all moderate political forces on the nature of the BDS movement, it’s true aims and mafia-like methods. We also warned those groups and the city council legal counsel about the judicial consequences of a discriminatory decision of this kind in Spain and the extraterritorial application of US federal and state anti boycott legislation.
