Perhaps the main object is to deter those who announce a policy of boycotting Israel
if you think it that big a deal you should give the land back to the native Indians they have more of a claim same here in Australia
your challenge is to justify stripping that freedom from some, because you don't like who they target (Isreal), without using any type of religious dogma.
like I already stated, I think the biggest boycotters in the US are the christian groups and they probably have the longest history of boycotting than any group.
The top United States-Israel imports and exports are precious stones/diamonds, machinery, pharmaceutical products, medical investments, and agriculture products. United States leading imports from Israel in 2014 were $9.4 billion in diamonds and $4.6 billion in pharmaceuticals. Machinery, electric machinery, and optic/medical instruments imports were all around $1.5 billion in 2014.

So why specifically discourage boycotting of Israel? So it's ok to boycott, say, England, or Montenegro, but if you boycott Israel, no disaster relief/aid because the government believes it is Wrongthink?
