My sentiment to the governor of New York and any other politician that tries to tell me what I can say or do……I know that when it comes to protecting Israel this country would suspend our civil rights and violate our Constitution so Israel can hide behind DC’s skirt.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive order opposing BDS shouldn’t have made a splash — but it did.
A handful of states had already passed similar measures opposing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. So had the New York State Senate — though the State Assembly version has been stalled since last year.
Cuomo’s order, signed Sunday, June 5, was merely supposed to speed up the “tedious” voting process, as he said at the signing ceremony Sunday, just prior to New York’s annual Celebrate Israel Parade.
Cuomo is a turd and a rat bastard if he thinks he will stop me from exercising my right to free association and speech. (You may let Cuomo know what I think of this worthless ass if you so desire)……
There are whole countries that are trying to banned BDS France being one of them……but it matters not for us people that want justice then we will fight wherever we are needed……
That’s right……these attempts to stop the BDS Movement is a violation of our basic rights as Americans……
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) concluded its annual policy conference last week with a lobbying day on Capitol Hill. High on its legislative agenda was advocating for bills that would penalise Americans for engaging in their First Amendment-protected right to boycott for Palestinian rights.
AIPAC conference attendees pressed their elected officials to support the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, sponsored by Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD). The original, draconian version of this bill, unveiled at last year’s AIPAC conference, proposed to jail individuals for 20 years if they advanced an international organization’s call for a boycott of Israel, or even of products from its illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.
Of course the only way this movement can be fought is by labeling it as “anti-Semitic” which it is NOT…..but that plays well to the morons that will not educate themselves on what the movement is trying to accomplish. Plus you have the mental midgets like Dershowitz, a Harvard Lawyer (go figure) who spends his waking hours trying to convince readers that anyone that uses BDS is anti Jewish (which is total bullshit but what can you expect from some from Harvard?)……speaking of the governor of New York……
Cynthia Nixon, one of the stars of the “Sex and the City” television series and movies, announced on Monday that she is planning to run for governor of New York. Her decision was met with a Twitter outburst by high-profile attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who denounced Nixon as a “bigot” for supporting an artist who refused to perform in the West Bank settlement of Ariel.
Dershowitz, who is the author of “The Case for Israel” and one of Israel’s loudest voices in America took aim at Nixon for backing Israeli actors refusing to perform in illegal settlements. Nixon’s name was just one amongst 150 American and Israeli actors, writers, directors and artists to support the 2010 campaign organised by Jewish Voice for Peace, which endorses the BDS movement. Its backing of the boycott of Israel has earned the progressive Jewish organisation a place on Israel’s BDS blacklist.
That is right…I REFUSE to buy anything from Israel…..
If my readers would like to participate in the BDS then this link will get them all the info they need to make an intelligent decision…..
