Planning on boycotting Israel? A Texas lawmaker wants to make sure you don’t do business with the state if you do.
State Sen. Brandon Creighton is pushing S.B. 134, which would forbid the state from signing contracts with any company or person engaging in a boycott of the Jewish state. Rep. Phil King is pushing a similar measure in the House.
Boycotting Israel is a real issue, both for businesses and for states. Most boycotts center on what is seen as Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands and the refusal to cooperate in creating a Palestinian state.
