BDS Motion fails at Maryland campus

Updated: May 3, 2019

The usual tactics- scheduling a vote during a Jewish festival among them - failed the Universoty of Maryland anti-Zionist cabal last week, as a BDS motion fell far short of enough votes to be implemented.

On April 25th the UMD Student Government Association (SGA) overwhelmingly voted down a resolution calling for the school to “divest from companies engaged in human-rights violations in Palestine.”

There were 25 votes against, with only 9 in favor and two abstentions.

This was the second setback for the pro-BDS radicals at the campus, as an attempt in 2017 to enact an anti-Israel policy was scuttled prior to reaching a vote. An official with StandWithUs said: “BDS has no place on campus and has only served to divide students and damage efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians together.”
