Bill Attacking Free Speech on Palestine/Israel Now in SC Senate

SC State Rep. Alan Clemmons recently smeared the liberal Jewish peace group J Street as “anti-Semitic”, an extreme opinion that was widely panned.  But the SC House recently passed a bill sponsored Clemmons that would enshrine the same kind of smear tactics into SC law.  H.3643  invokes a controversial and vague State Department definition of anti-semitism to smear and  silence legitimate criticism of the state of Israel on campuses in South Carolina.  Language in the bill referencing a “What is Anti-Semitism Relative to Israel?” fact sheet is a direct attack on First Amendment protected political speech and intentionally blurs the line to conflate and equate legitimate viewpoints on Palestine/Israel with anti-Semitism, a backdoor form of censorship.  We’ve challenged the bill in both House and Senate subcommittees; both mostly ignored our concerns and rubber stamped the bill without discussion.  However, the bill was blocked in the last session by Senator Brad Hutto.  Now there is a rush now to get the bill passed with the new session in January of 2018.

ACTION ALERT: SC Legislators Tour Illegal Israeli Settlements, Sign the Petition

PROTEST SOUTH CAROLINA LEGISLATORS VISITING ILLEGAL ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS

Pro-settler tour of West Bank whitewashes system of apartheid

In December 2014, a delegation of twelve South Carolina state legislators traveled to Israel on a business promoting mission. They also visited illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. State Representative Alan Clemmons (R-Horry County) led the group that visited the Israeli settlements of Efrat and Shomron at the behest of the right-wing settler group the YESHA Council.  Since returning, some legislators have misrepresented the situation in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian West Bank based on one-sided and very skewed impressions they received from visiting the Israeli settlements.

TAKE ACTION! SIGN THE PETITION asking SC Legislators to Recognize the Illegality of Israeli Settlements in the West Bank and Israel’s Apartheid Policies Toward Palestinians
