What Are BDS Proponents Complaining About? Aren’t They Getting What They Want?

July 14, 2011

The Boycott Bill, stipulates that anyone calling for an economic, cultural or academic boycott against the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria will be unable to participate in government tenders. In addition, any person who considers himself a victim of a boycott could sue the boycotter for compensation. Court gives state 60 days to explain Boycott Law.  Z Street is wondering what all the fuss is with Israel’s new anti-BDS law:

An interesting precedent is in Germany dealing with Holocaust deniers without physical boundaries. The lawyer Eugene Volks sees this as a threat to Democracy. The delegitimizers, i.e. the BDS practitioners and their enablers (NIF, J Street, Peace Now) immediately attacked it as a gross violation of free speech… …Many central to further right-leaning pro-Israel organizations are also expressing criticism… Also recently the United States declared that effected markets has no boundaries to prove cause of information crimes. The law does NOT criminalize speech and it does NOT restrict free speech. BDS practitioners can continue to say whatever vile things they want about Israel, but they simply are not eligible for government contracts if they do. Well goodness, isn’t that what they want? NOT to engage in financial transactions with the “evil ZioNazi government”? image via Israeli BDS Activists Call on Artists to Boycott Music Festival h/t Daled Amos

Pro-Palestinian protestors interrupt junior fencing competition in Burgos, chanting anti-Israeli slogans. ‘I was shaking the whole competition, it was very scary,’ Israeli teen athlete Irina Levin says via ynetnews.com

No offense to the teen that was attacked by Palestinian sympathizers, but you were holding a sword and you didn’t use it? I would of made Shawarma out of their Nazi Asses
