Anti-BDS Bill Defeated

Gilad Atzmon

Some may be happy to learn that the US Senate didn’t pass the ‘anti BDS bill’ on Tuesday. But a look at the vote reveals that America’s politicians are fully removed from the American ethos of freedom. Fifty six  mostly Republican Senators, just 4 shy of the 60 needed to pass the bill, voted to enact a law contrary to the Constitutional right to Freedom of Speech as granted by the 1st amendment. The defeated bill included a provision to allow states and local governments to punish Americans who boycott Israel. This was an astonishing and nearly successful attempt  to legislate crude government interference with freedom of speech in its most protected form: political speech. The fact that such a bill made it to the floor of the Senate confirms that the American political establishment is an occupied zone committed to silencing opposition to Israel and its lobby.  

Democrats did not necessarily oppose the anti BDS bill on first amendment grounds. Instead, most Senate Democrats have vowed to block all legislation in the Senate until it votes to end the government shutdown. Trump has closed the Federal government until Congress accedes to his demand for $5.7 billion to begin to erect an Israeli style ghetto wall on the Mexican border.

If the president is so desperate to defend America’s southern border, perhaps he should consider not giving military aid to Israel, even if  just for two years. This would free $8 billion and give Trump enough cash to build his wall and then maybe he could invest the remaining $2.3 billion where it’s really needed: to make America great again.

      I hope from his mouth to Trumps ear
      I say pull the treasonous funding forever
      And maybe give it back to us <~I know I’m dreaming

      And pigs fly, Trump has his member planted firmly in Netanyahus rear end. Incredible how this circus barker has cheated America Nationals with this whole charade of lies.

      3.5 billion isn’t the real number, we will never know what the real number is.

    As I’ve said many times before…what are they gonna do? Put surveillance cameras everywhere in a grocery store near where they sell hummus (or dead sea salt, whatever) and arrest people if they buy hummus from Lebanon and not Israel? Put surveillance cameras in shopping malls near where Israelis (supposedly) sell their carny-barker products from kiosks, and arrest people if they don’t buy these products (such as dead sea salts)?
    Are they gonna be able to force supermarket chains to ONLY buy products from Israel and ONLY sell products from Israel…not even able to sell made in USA products? Even if this bill had passed–and I am sure a similar bill will pass in the next few months or maybe next year–it is unenforceable concerning private individuals. All anyone has to do is boycott these supermarkets, kiosks, etc. Will they force Amazon to only sell products from Israel? Will indy authors like me be forced to self-publish thru and Israeli company? When these anti-BDs businesses lose their shirts over being forced to sell products from Israel is when this crapola will end. It’s all about the money, and with this anti-Bill of Rights law, it’s all about reality TV, Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!
