The Jerusalem Post reports: A municipality in the renowned Spanish island of Ibiza has passed a resolution endorsing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, the Jerusalem Post has learned.

According to ACOM, an Israeli lobbying group working to combat BDS in Spain, last month the city council of Santa Eulalia, an exclusive residential area and the second-most populated municipality on the island, endorsed the boycott campaign against Israel at its plenary session.

“This is a part of the BDS group’s summer campaign,” Angel Mas, ACOM’s chairman, told the Post on Wednesday. “These BDS activists go to the coastline because it’s summertime, presenting these boycott resolutions to the many coastal municipalities.”

Mas explained that the endorsement commits the city to support the BDS campaign, the boycott against Israeli and pro-Israel institutions, companies and organizations, as well as Spanish nationals associated or sympathetic to the Jewish state.

The council agreement essentially declares the area of Santa Eulalia, a popular international tourist attraction, a “space free of Israeli apartheid” and calls on the municipal government to execute the boycott agreement, he said.
