The Sacramento City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to name Ashkelon, Israel, a sister city.
Most of those in a packed City Council chambers stood and applauded following the vote. The council decision followed an hour of impassioned - but mostly civil - testimony from supporters and opponents.
Thus ended the latest attempt by the anti-Israel Boycotts Divestment and Sanctions movement to push its junk into yet another corner of civil society. Note: the vote against them was unanimous.
