Flying now over the Atlantic and saw this action alert via J Street on Twitter, the pro-Jewish, pro-peace organization based in DC:
@jstreetdotorg: In @theprospect, @GershomG challenges US Congress on legislation that defends settlements https://t.co/hsOkcEgCib https://t.co/89nHFMKFjx
Good question. Official U.S. policy is to stop settlement expansion. Right-wing Christians from the United States fund much of this development - hoping - literally - to hasten the end times.
I'm not a proponent of the BDS movement but I cannot help but wonder if by executive order President Obama could stop U.S. companies and religious groups from helping to fund settlement expansion as it goes directly against American policy.
