American Zionist org supports new limits on free speech in the ‘human rights loving democracy’

on 107 Comments

In a reversal of an earlier statement seeming to oppose the Israeli law making it illegal to advocate for boycott, this statement by Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America says that the boycott movement is an existential threat to Israel, a human rights loving democracy, and so therefore American Zionists must maintain solidarity with the Jewish state… The whole Jewish state– i.e., the West Bank too:

A boycott against any part of the Jewish state of Israel, a human rights loving democracy, is wrong, immoral, despicable, and frequently anti-Semitic.

So the new battle line inside the Jewish community is, Boycott the settlements/Don’t boycott. I’m glad the line has moved. Not that I think it will make much difference.
