I am not pro or anti Israel...but [View all]

How can a law banning joining a boycott against Israel be legal?
Wouldn't that infringe upon the 1st Amendment?


Perhaps the most shocking aspect is the punishment: anyone guilty of violating its prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000, and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.
