10. Anti-boycott legislation isn't about companies that personally boycott Israel.

It's about other countries that boycott Israel. If you do business with a country that boycotts Israel they may ask you to agree to not to business with Israel. That's what is what companies can't comply with.

No one has to do business with Israel. The reasoning is that the US government makes foreign policy and the boycott language/request is an attempt to use US businesses as leverage to change US policy.

It should be noted that anti-boycott language applies to any country that the US government doesn't have a boycott against, not just Israel. A business can't agree to a Chinese request to boycott Taiwan.

Under current law a business cannot agree to a boycott that is not aligned with US policy, even if they don't do business with that country anyway, and also must report such requests.

I work for a company that sells and exports items to many countries that boycott Israel. Every employee as part of our annual compliance training includes export training covering anti-boycott laws.
