JNS.org – New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Sunday issued the first-ever executive order on the U.S. state level that targets the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The governor’s order prohibits any state agency or authority from engaging in a boycott of Israel or promoting BDS movement activities.

Cuomo announced the order at the annual Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City. “New York stands in solidarity with Israel today and always,” he said.

“This state will not stand for the politics of discrimination in any form, and we will continue to demonstrate our unwavering support for the people of Israel in the fight for freedom, liberty, and democracy,” said Cuomo. “I’m proud to sign this nation’s leading executive order, which will help protect Israel from the threat of divestment. This order sends the message that this state will do everything in its power to end this hateful, intolerant campaign. New York and Israel share an unbreakable bond and I pray that the Israeli and Palestinian people will find a way to live side by side and find peace, prosperity and security.”

The new mandate, which took effect immediately, requires New York’s Office of General Services to make a list of state institutions and companies that participate in BDS activity “either directly or through a parent or subsidiary.” The list will be posted on the state agency’s website within six months and will continue to be updated based on new information.

    His actions will hit the White House like a tsunami. Thank God someone in authority is standing up for Israel. This means one thing Obama must now ratchet up the conflict with Russia. Obama is on this planet to destroy America and if he has to attack Russia in order to get that done….so be it! The first two million plus causally of the tribulation will be America..Rev:18. It will be an asteroid, the Yellowstone volcano, or Russia and China threatened in to a corner and responding with an EMP, or the rapture. I was told by God, yes I talked to God, and he was extremely upset with me. He told me that since I had procrastinated and buried my talent I would not be raptures and would be martyred as a tribulation Saint during the seven year tribulation. I totally freaked out and as a sin sacrifice was given a role as Jonah for ten years receiving messages for God and conveying them to Israel. Now let me tell you something about God, you do not want him mad at you. Last night after over 10,000 articles God told me Israel was my friend, why he told me that I do not know. I think he was telling me my job was finished and as I spoke to Him in a vision I was taken up to heaven like Elijah. That’s the rapture. He is getting ready to remove not the earth bound Christians but those that are awaiting his arrival and hope and pray to rise at the trump of an arch angel. I pray I may be counted worthy to rise with the first-fruits. The time is very near this removal must occur in order for the great tribulation to begin. So prepare for a rough seven years, strategize with those that will stand with you against the forces of the anti Christ and remember out of the 12 tribes of revelation those 144000 Jews who take the mark of the best 777 who confront the forces of the antichrist and warn the world against taking the mark of the beast 666….of those 144000 will be included Russian Jews…so you do have a common root with Russia. According to Daniel Russia and China take a very confrontational military posture against the forces of the antichrist. Shalom.
