    Default Anti-BDS law watch

    A number of Israel's allies, including the US, UK and France have or are passing laws in an attempt to suppress BDS. This thread is to keep track of it. The latest is the Anti Boycott Act, which would fine companies refusing to trade with illegal settlements.

    ...On March 23, Sens. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Rob Portman (R-OH), and Reps. Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Juan Vargas (D-CA), introduced the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S.720 and H.R.1697).

    This bill seeks to impose fines and deny government loans to corporations refusing to do business with corporations in illegal Israeli settlements. And it infringes on our First Amendment right to promote boycott, divestment and sanctions and seeks to legitimize Israel’s settlements......
    Important to pressure political representatives to stop the crackdown on BDS and the attempt to deny freedom of expression and self determination to the Palestinians.

    Bank of Ireland recently closed IPSC accounts, in a disturbing sign of repression of the BDS movement.
    Save the 27th.

    Doesn't apply in Europe. The EU has stated all settlement produce must be labelled as such.

    A wonderful thread.

    This thread shows that the BDSMers are alarmed.

    Hopefully we'll see more good news, and the trial of Omar Barghuthi (the flea).
    The book totally contradicts any post-modern theory claiming a “Palestinian heritage,” or Palestinian nation. https://palestineisraelconflict.word...-palestinians/

    BDS has failed. Israeli economy is up this year and last. It has had no impact.

    It's not a question of success or failure (though it's part of it), but a question of purpose - their raison d'etre is to destroy Israel (and they can shout all they long that it's only beacuse of d'okyupeishen).

    Thankfully, the Israeli gov. has just paved the way to banning their entrance here, but those who are inside should be coped with too.

    Aptly named!!
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    If true, there would be no need for these repressive laws.

    Because naive people do not get that if the shoe was on the other foot, the Jews would be wiped out or removed by now.
