York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a pro-Israel executive order on Sunday
that will punish people and groups who support a boycott of Israel on
behalf of Palestinian human rights. Legal experts have described this
long pending anti-boycott policy as “21st-century McCarthyism,” warning
it would effectively create a discriminatory “blacklist” of Palestinian
human rights advocates who endorse boycotts like those organized in
order to combat U.S.-backed apartheid in South Africa."
