JNS.org – The City Council of Lérida, Spain, rejected last Fridau a motion to boycott Israelis and companies doing business with the Jewish state.

The Lawfare Project, a think tank describing itself as the “legal arm of the pro-Israel community,” said it “provided court decisions and legal reasoning, which were discussed during the council’s debate, demonstrating that the boycott motion was unconstitutional and in breach of anti-discrimination laws.” Angeles Ribes, a member of the City Council, affirmed that “boycotts by public offices are simply illegal.”

Last November, the Lawfare Project took legal action that successfully reversed a decision to boycott Israel by a different Spanish city council, in Sant Adrià de Besòs.
