    While some may think is a good idea, I certainly don't and see it as pure fascism. If we lose our freedom of expression, then what have we become? Even Israel's supporters must understand this, right? I'm guessing MSM is not talking about this so I implore everyone who reads this thread to post it all over their social media and email it to everyone they love.

    The new law prevents companies that boycott or discriminate against any country, including Israel, from doing business with California.

    NY has a similar law and I don't agree with it.

    It has begun - the same "diffamatory laws/incitation to violence" or whatever PC name is given to what is, in fact, restraining freedom of expression has set its ugly foot ion the US, the last WASP bastion to resist such laws.

    Easy, just follow the Three D's of Antisemitism rules and you can put down Jews, Zionists and Israel to your heart's content.

    Calling a Neo-Nazis a Nazi is like calling a neoconservative a conservative.

    Criticizing Israel is easy.

    ISRAEL IS TOO SOFT ON PALESTINIAN TERRORISTS!

    See, I've done it.

    If it is not obvious to you yet that this group that makes up less than 2% of the world's population has too much power over our government on both the state and federal levels, than you are missing the point completely.

    nothing but an anti-Semitic comment.

    which is ironic, as many of your comments state that you are a Jew.

    I am a Jew and if simple truth is now anti-Semitic, then the problem here is even more obvious.

    I guess you meant "anti-Semitic" as in my sig?

    No! That is a ploy used by their supporters to try and cover for what is right under our noses.

    Can you honestly sit their and tell me that "the lobby" holds no real power in American politics?

    in your comments you say you are a Jew, and yet you refer to the Jews as "they".

    explain why this is.

    I am a Jew, and I refer to the Jews as "we", for I am one of them.

    this is true, some jerks do boycott Jewish American businesses, under the mask of "Boycotting Israel"

    - - - Updated - - -

    i can kinda/sorta accept boycotting foreign governments and foreign products....maybe.

    but when that boycott includes American companies and businesses due to the faith of their owners, that crosses the line into racism.

    California, NY, no state should do business with companies that engage in racist boycotts

    Your allegation is false. Again you start a thread to criticize Israel with an inflammatory accusation that incites hatred against Israel and Israelis.

    In fact even the article you provided shows your allegation is false.

    The article in fact does not state criticism of Israel was outlawed in California it in fact says;

    "The new law prevents companies that boycott or discriminate against any country, including Israel, from doing business with California."

    So you not only misrepresent the actual law, but you provide a false statement as to it.

    The law applies equally to boycotting or discriminating against ANY country. No one is stopped from criticizing Israel, they
    are stopped from boycotting countries so as to protect innocent people in those countries. and it applies to companies not consumers.

    No one is forcing any consumer to buy an Israeli product.

    In fact the Arab League of Nations has been carrying out boycotts against Israel since the 1930's.

    Speaking of facism the boycotting of Israel and Jews in Palestine before Israel was started by the Mufti of Jerusalem and the
    German Nazi party.

    You again demonstrate that you are using this thread as a pretext to single out Jews and smeer us all. Your comment attacks all Jews.

    No its not. It does not prevent any consumer from boycotting Israeli products or criticizing Israel.

    How about you read the law. Its designed to protect innocent people from being smeered and
    discriminated against.
