Laurie Cardoza-Moore has pioneered anti-BDS legislature in 4 states; now, 35 states and 6 foreign countries are queuing to be next.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of the Christian Zionist NPO Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), has been a leading force campaigning to defend the Jewish state from the scourge of BDS that pushes to boycott and economically attack Israel.
Cardoza-Moore sat down with Arutz Sheva to discuss her important activities in confronting BDS throughout the US and abroad.
PJTN launched its anti-BDS campaign in Tennessee with a resolution against investing in companies taking part in the boycott movement, seeking to fight the phenomenon and educate about the nationwide "anti-Semitic movement."
After successfully passing the anti-BDS resolution in Tennessee in April - following which she traveled to Israel, to present a framed copy of the original resolution to Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein - a similar success was scored in Indiana.
"Since then momentum is growing," remarked Cardoza-Moore, noting on how the resolution went on to pass in the state assemblies of Pennsylvania and New York.
Now, no less than 35 states and six countries have requested further information about the anti-BDS resolution to introduce it in state legislatures and national parliaments, revealed the PJTN head.
"Our goal is to have all 50 states by the end of this year, and at the rate that we're going I think that we'll accomplish that goal," she said. "Our goal is to obliterate BDS and crush it in the United States."
PJTN is also launching a media campaign to accompany the legislative push, in an attempt to spread awareness of how BDS is a form of anti-Semitism, targeting Jewish students as well as Christian Zionists on college campuses around the US.
As part of the media campaign, Cardoza-Moore said a documentary video called "Israel...the Apartheid State?" is in the works, to reveal the true picture that is not being presented by the media. As part of it, the group interviewed Palestinian Arabs working for Jewish employers in Judea and Samaria, who said that if they lose the jobs which are threatened by BDS, they and their families would die.
"If we bring people the unvarnished truth people will get it, they will understand," said Cardoza-Moore, noting that Americans by and large support the Jewish state, as evidenced by a Gallup poll in February that showed 70% of Americans support Israel.
Israel is on the front line in the war against radical Islam, concluded the PJTN head, warning that if America doesn't support the Jewish state it will be next in line.
