Gubernur New York Andrew Cuomo membuat kebijakan yang menuai protes keras

Netizen meradang setelah gubernur negara bagian New York menandatangani sebuah pergub yang "melumpuhkan" perusahaan dan instansi yang melakukan boikot terhadap Israel.

Hal ini dilakukan dalam rangka perayaan Israel yang dilakukan di kota New York pada tanggal 6 Juni 2016.

Berbagai protes dan kecaman bermunculan setelah adanya pergub ini. Sebagian bahkan datang dari kalangan Yahudi dan orang Israel sendiri. Mereka menilai pergub ini mematikan semangat kebebasan berpendapat, termasuk memboikot produk Israel sebagai bentuk protes perusahaan dan instansi terhadap konflik Israel-Palestina.

Sebagian bahkan menyindir bahwa Pergub tersebut sudah sangat salah kaprah karena isinya yang terlalu "mengurusi" negara lain. Padahal kapasitas Gubernur adalah menjalankan pemerintahan Negara Bagian, dalam lingkaran besar pemerintahan Amerika Serikat, bukan Israel atau negara lain.

I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement. If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

@ajplus This is nuts. He does know that Israel is a foreign country right? Last time I checked, NY voters made him governor not Israel.

@allibeth63 no, israel definitely made him governor. all of his endorsements come from pro-israeli propagandists.

Stop supporting apartheid states. Israel is a constant human rights violator @NYGovCuomo

@NYGovCuomo Then I guess American Jews like me who want to treat Palestinians like human beings will have to consider boycotting New York.

@NYGovCuomo @dandayan As a Jew and a New Yorker, I am disgusted by your stand against human and political freedom. #BoycottMeBubba

@abushalom @NYGovCuomo @dandayan Im Jewish too and I dont need a 'homecountry' for Jews only. The nazis are long gone. Israel is racist.

. @NYGovCuomo how will you determine exactly who you will boycott? And who are you speaking for when you say "we"?
Christian @TalkNerdyToMe72
@ShaunKing @NYGovCuomo can NY primary this a-hole? He wants to boycott free speech in favor of another country. Not fit for office.

@NYGovCuomo Bullshit! People have a right to buy & invest in what they want & boycott what they want as well. Get outta here...

.@eshaLegal Seems @NYGovCuomo needs a lesson in constitutional law before he goes sucking up to donors and foreign countries #NY #BDS

@JayDabhi @NYGovCuomo Funny, I thought it was safe spaces that quashed free speech on college campuses. Instead, it is Governor's of NY
