Another bill to oppose in the Senate: Israel Anti-Boycott Act

Sen. Benjamin Cardin, Jewish Democrat representing Maryland, is the main sponsor of this bill introduced in March 2017. It is currently in the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee in the Senate.

This bill is to protect Israel and no one else. It's purpose is:

To amend the Export Administration Act of 1979 to include in the prohibitions on boycotts against allies of the United States boycotts fostered by international governmental organizations against Israel and to direct the Export-Import Bank of the United States to oppose boycotts against Israel, and for other purposes.

[My comment: Boycotts against “allies of the US” is already covered, but Jews like Cardin seek special protection for Israel whether it behaves as an ally or not!]

Write to the republicans. The best argument to present to these senators is to oppose singling out Israel for special treatment. Showing favoritism is against Pres. Trump's “America First” promise since Israel has led us down many a dark road already in its short existence. It's attempt to sink the U.S.S. Liberty and murder of its entire crew is one example.
