US-based BDS group seeks to lobby Congress

campaign by a Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions organization called “The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation” to lobby members of Congress against Israel on Capitol Hill has raised concern in Jerusalem and among pro-Israel organizations who view the step as a flagrant escalation in anti-Israel efforts in the United States.


It is unclear if the organization has confirmed meetings with congressional politicians.

Government officials said that they were aware of the organization and were following their efforts to break ground with their lobby campaign next week.
