mochon ,I'll repeat what i said in other post about this :
boycotts are used as political/economical tool to pressure Israel to make more concessions ,
without addressing any of it's concerns or reasoning, which plays a role in the delegitimization
efforts by elements within the international community and their local hired provocateurs Inside Israel .
A small overly aggressive radical left that went amok with demonization attempts, against
a segment of the Israeli population (Israelis living in Judea and Samaria) and Israel
in general , and this law is the result .
so Israelis inciting anti-Israel boycotts could soon be forced to pay,
not that bad if you ask me .
The bill comes in response to a wide range of boycotts – financial, academic, and others – that have recently been encountered in Israel.
academic or cultural Organizations that call for boycotts will not be entitled to receive tax-deductible donations or state funding. Anyone who is the subject of a boycott will be able to sue for damages.
criticism of the new bill rings hollow, particularly when it's coming from the quarters within the Israeli Left and the “international community” where economic, cultural and academic boycotts have been championed. After all, the bill is not only a defensive response to the growing support for boycott initiatives, but it also takes such initiatives to their logical conclusion. In fact, it is a mirror image of the international Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which has found wide support among international, radical pro-Palestine campaigners, Western liberals and Israeli leftists alike.
