But Who Will Boycott the Boycotters?

Bill would ban bans

Print Email

A bill just made it out of a Knesset committee, over the objections of the Foreign and Justice Ministries (but with the support of members from both Likud and Kadima), that would apparently—there’s no other way to put this—outlaw the boycotting of Israel. Specifically, it would allow Israeli organizations or people targeted by boycotts to sue.

Not clear yet on whether all Israelis will now be required to purchase Sabra hummus.

Knesset Committee Approves Bill Allowing Israel Boycotters to be Fined [Haaretz]

This is actually meant to allow Israeli organizations targeted by boycotts to sue Israelis par-taking a leading role in promoting the boycotts in abroad.

Some far-left wing political activists and one or two dozen university professors who signed their name to support the boycotts.
