Trump plan to label BDS-backing groups anti-Semitic is ‘off the table’ — report

The Trump administration’s plan to label as anti-Semitic all organizations that support the BDS movement, which promotes boycotting Israel, is “off the table” because it was not completed by the end of the former president’s term, the Haaretz daily reports, citing “well-placed sources.”

The report says that the State Department “failed to complete the list and get it approved by the time the new administration stepped in – among other reasons, because of internal opposition within the State Department to the initiative, largely stemming from concerns about its repercussions on free speech.”
