This law is way over due.
The only people who oppose Israel’s newly passed ‘anti boycott law’ are those who want to subvert, delegitimize, demonize and dehumanize Israel. In this camp I include, MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad), who, in 2010 participated in the deadly IHH flotilla to Gaza, the Left Camp, this law will take their main occupation away, Tzipporah Malkah “Tzipi” Livni, who is making remarkable efforts to prove to all of us how incapable she was, then, when she ran the county with the other inapt person Olmert, and now, as the head of the Knesset opposition, et al.
And organizations such as, Amnesty International, that claims that Israel anti-boycott law is an attack on freedom of expression: http://www.amnesty.org/en/news-and-updates/israel-anti-boycott-law-attack-freedom-expression-2011-07-12 or, Human Rights Watch that claims, Israel: Anti-Boycott Bill Stifles Expression, (http://www.hrw.org/en/news/2011/07/13/israel-anti-boycott-bill-stifles-expression), or, the Guardian, UK, claiming that Israel’s anti-boycott is belligerence (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jun/30/israel-anti-boycott-bill), or, ‘Divestment Watch’: (http://www.divestmentwatch.com/antiboycottlaw.htm), or, ‘Jews sans frontieres-An Anti-Zionist blog’: (http://jewssansfrontieres.blogspot.com/2011/07/israels-anti-boycott-law.html), and the list goes on and it is long.
The BDS – Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions – campaign phenomenon, that is targeting Israel, is one of many tools Israel’s enemies, within the country and around the world, are using to assist the Arabs in their war against Israel. Israel has the right to fight this new type war, waged on her, and one tool of retaliation is this new anti boycott law that brings some sense of protection for the state.
This law does not stifle expression or is attacking freedom of expression, rather will cause a terrible unemployment gap in the anti-Israel camp, as it will take away their main occupation, which is to harass Israel, or cause here damage, in any way possible.
The anti boycott law is a must for Israel; it sends a clear message to all those who oppose it: enough of abusing our country, the State of Israel, enough of abusing Jews!
In God We Trust – In Israel God Trusts!
Words are power!
