NEW YORK BLACKLISTS EUROPEAN BANKS AND ENTITIES THAT SUPPORT BDS

Andrew Coumo, the Governor of the State of New York, has ordered that certain specified European financial institutions, and corporate entities, be hereafter off limits, for any business purpose, to all state agencies, bureaus and offices. the reason for this blacklisting is the determination that these  sanctioned entities are participating in a BDS program, which involves boycotting goods and services from Israel, divesting themselves of any investments in Israel, and supporting anti-Israel sanctions targeting activities.

The institutions and companies named are:

(1) ASN Bank NV
(2) Betsah SA
(3) Bersah Invest SA
(4) Cactus SA
(5) The Co-operative Group
(6) Danske Bank
(7) FreedomCall UK
(8) Guloguz Dis Deposu Ticaret ve Pazarlams Ltd.
(9) KLP Kapitalfortvaltning
(10) Kommunal Landspensjonskasse (KLP)
(11) Royal Haskoning DHV
(12) Triodos Bank
(13) Vitens NV

Please note that some of these entities are also subject to similar state sanctions, in Florida, and other states. Whether you choose to elevate risk levels involving the financial institutions named above is your decision, but given that Hamas is deeply involved in global BDS anti-Israel operations, it is prudent to consider doing so, for you do not want to later learn, too late, that your bank is under investigation for providing material support to a designated terrorist organization.

Readers who wish to confirm the names of the financial entities and companies may do so by accessing the State of New York Office of General Services webpage here.
