      WASHINGTON DC – Key Democratic senators and civil rights groups have voiced their opposition to a proposed measure in Congress that would prohibit US companies from boycotting Israel, saying that it violates freedom of speech.

      Senator Bernie Sanders and senior Democrat Dianne Feinstein issued a letter on Wednesday asking top lawmakers from both major parties to block the provision, known as the Israel Anti-Boycott Act.

      “While we do not support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, we remain resolved to our constitutional oath to defend the right of every American to express their views peacefully without fear of or actual punishment by the government,” the letter said.

      The proposed measure, which is attached to a broader spending bill in the Senate, calls for imposing fines on businesses that answer the call of “international governmental organisations” to boycott Israel.

      It is just another news story.

      Maybe we have a SV mole here?

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
