The only democracy in the Middle East my foot.... Demon-crazy is more like it.
"'In the U.S. there are laws aimed at preventing Americans from boycotting U.S. allies, including Israel. It appears that in light of the reality in Israel, we need a similar law that applies to Israeli citizens,' said the bill's sponsors - coalition chairman Zeev Elkin (Likud), MK Arieh Eldad (National Union) and MK Dalia Itzik (Kadima)."
By the way, the US government can go take a hike on telling me I can't choose not to buy Israeli products. I'll choose to buy or not to buy Israeli products with or without any say so of the US federal government, understand? It's my free political speech and my freedom of religion. Israel is not my ally. The Zionist Project is an illegitimate, racist, Apartheid, land-thieving, war-mongering, ethnic-cleansing, war criminal, lying, assassinating pariah. Zionism is anti-Christ, plain and simple.
