Israeli high court: BDS Movement is 'Political Terror'

Boycotts have an honorable tradition amongst Jews. In 1933 in the US, the American Jewish Congress, American League for Defense of Jewish Rights, B’nai B’rith, the Jewish Labor Committee and Jewish War Veterans — joined together in a call for a boycott of German goods backed by the President of the AFL (US trade union confederation) and political leaders.

Long before signing the joint pledge with Canada, Israel passed a law making it an offense to participate in or encourage BDS.
And the Israeli high court recently upheld most of it, with one of the justices writing that boycotts can be considered "political terror."
At the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, Vonn says she is certain a prosecution of boycott advocates for hate speech would not survive a charter challenge.
But, she says, the government is certainly sowing "dread and chill," and that that appears to be its main intention in pronouncing zero tolerance.
"We've asked our lawyers. What does that mean?" says CUPE president Paul Moist. "Is it now a criminal offence to walk around with a sign saying close all the settlements, Israel out of occupied territories?"

In France, the law has for years criminalized hate speech based on national origin, and authorities there have in recent years been using it to prosecute BDS advocates. To date, more than 20 have been convicted.
According to the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz, pro-Israel activists in Belgium are pushing for a similar law there.
The Obama administration officially opposes boycotts of Israel, and a measure now before Congress would direct American trade negotiators to discourage boycotts of Israeli goods.
But America has no hate speech laws. The U.S. constitution guarantees free speech. So a zero tolerance policy, or the type of prosecutions Canada is considering, would be impossible.

    ..."we may participate in the divine nature,
    having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

    For this very reason,
    make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control;
    and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
    and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

    For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure,
    they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind,
    forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins..."
