    I was speaking as a rather generic, non-us "we"
    Though, there are many of them that think they are "we", or rather "we" are "they"

    Or, um, something like that.

    The OP says:
    A bipartisan bill in Congress seeks to criminalize boycotts of Israel with fines and imprisonment, as the so-called BDS movement passes its twelfth birthday, notes Lawrence Davidson.
    You wrote that "it confirms our best interests are with our friend and ally, Israel" and I asked "Why pick out Israel specifically by name? Does America have no other friend and ally? "

    I didn't ask why YOU pick out Israel specifically by name, I asked why THE BILL picks out Israel specifically by name. Does America have no other friend and ally?

    What you haven't answered is my direct question which I now put for a third time. You have sidestepped this twice. May I please have a direct answer to the question in bold here. You said it's in America's best interests that companies boycotting Iraeli goods, or trading with such companies, should be disbarred from Federal or State contracts. How does America benefit from that ban?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    It was the HRC which chose Israel as a target.

    The whole topic is about Israel, I did not pick it.

    Of all the nations in the world, the HRC picked Israel for a boycott. As a nation, we are not obligated to follow their lead but can, if we want to frustrate it.

    Not only because it benefits Israel, but makes a statement to all those who want to do harm to our friend and ally.

    There's a boycott against Denmark too. Is Denmark not also a friend and ally of America?

    It also appears to say that even supporting companies that support BDS is criminal.
    It's been referred to Committee. I doubt that it will see the light of day, again.
    It seems a pretty silly ideal, to me.
