The President signs into law the Trans-Pacific Partnership Act that while liberalizing trade with Asian states, likewise contains stipulations that combat the “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS) movement against Israel. Prompted by the action of several European governments and companies, who advocate boycotting Israeli markets and products, the law states that any future free trade agreements with the European Union will hinge upon their universal rejection of BDS. A small victory, the language becomes a milestone in the fight against economic warfare with Israel.
