The Israel Lobby spent a lot of money to get corrupt legislatures in 32 states to protect Israel from being boycotted. The laws are in violation of the First Amendment and are being struck down.

The Lobby’s other shield that protects Israel’s theft of Palestine and murder of Palestinians is the anti-semite smear. Israel is the only country in the world that equates criticism of the Israeli government with hatred of Israel’s Jewish ethnicity. It is possible to criticize US government policy without being labeled “anti-American,” but to criticize Israel means the critic is anti-Jew.
For example, if a person reacts to such reports as this one— https://us11.campaign-archive.com/?e=094f852e25&u=70b9fc567465118fa0b7b6e67&id=be3dc339c1 —with criticism of Israel, that person will be defamed by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as an anti-semite.
Strange, isn’t it, that an organization created for the purpose of defaming people is called the “Anti-Defamation League.”
