The US lawmakers have overwhelmingly approved a non-binding resolution that condemns the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement as harmful to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stopping short of openly declaring it anti-Semitic.

House Resolution 246, which was introduced in March by Rep. Bradley Schneider (D-Illinois), passed with flying colors in a 398 to 17 vote in the House of Representatives on Tuesday. The bill opposes the BDS movement and particularly any “efforts to target United States companies.”

The powerful American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbying group immediately welcomed the resolution, claiming that BDS is discriminatory and “disguises its true intentions under the banner of ‘human rights.’”
