Missouri Senate talks boycott on companies boycotting Israel

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers are considering a government boycott of companies that boycott Israel, but the proposal is meeting roadblocks. Debate on the bill to stop public contracts with those businesses ground to a halt Tuesday following pushback from Republican Sen. Rob Schaaf, who said doing so would limit protest rights.

Bill Tammeus won't like this.

His denomination has already tried to divest Israel.

Heck, he hates Israel almost as much as Catholics!

"Illegal to boycott Israel". Let that sink in..."ILLEGAL to boycott" ! Nothing, absolutely NOTHING should be illegal to boycott in America--any questions about who owns our politicians ? Any questions about Jews ?

It's always illegal to do the right thing.

By making it illegal, they can discuss your breaking the law, instead of a righteous boycott of Israel.

For example, by making it illegal for poor women from Central America to cross our border, without saying "Mother, may I" first; we can focus on their criminal activity rather than our own criminal duplicity in denying that refugees are merely refugees & not criminals.
