The story comes from the independent, I’m not aware of them being in the same group as the onion or Babylon bee so I’m not sure what to make of this.
From the article



"As Israel's number one trading partner in the United States, Texas is proud to reaffirm its support for the people of Israel and we will continue to build on our historic partnership," he said in May. "Anti-Israel policies are anti-Texas policies, and we will not tolerate such actions against an important ally."


Can someone please confirm this is nonsense so I can laugh at myself for getting trolled because the alternative is quite sickening.

If anyone was unsure who our real masters are.......

EDIT: for some reason I cant get the link to work, if you google the title "Texas city refuses to give people hurricane aid unless they pledge not to boycott Israel" it should come up.
I just saw the article was from 2017, has this been in place that long???

For what it's worth, the Independent is a mainstream national broadsheet, originally founded to be neutral in politics as between Socialist (the Guardian) and Conservative (the Daily Telegraph).

Not just Texas.

Twenty-one states, including Texas, have passed laws that prohibit them from entering into contracts with individuals or companies participating in a boycott of Israel. Earlier this month, the ACLU filed a federal lawsuit in Kansas on behalf of a teacher challenging that state’s boycott law.

One could be forgiven for believing the bloodlines of the pharoes largely reside in Israel.

Whats that got to do with the price of fish?
May as well be talking about the leaders of Mohenjo Daro for all the relevance it has today.

Why would a sovereign nation prevent its citizens getting ANYTHING let alone disaster relief based on their thoughts/feelings on another nation?

Your link is dead. Further, what in the hell does your quote have to do with anything?

AIPAC.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is a lobbying group that advocates pro-Israel policies to the Congress and Executive Branch of the United States.

I can't answer that for you, the information is at your fingertips should you choose to search for it. What I will say is that the people whose bloodlines that have ruled us plebs for countless generations hold no allegiance to any country.

An elected American official just told people if they dont think a certain way they are unAmerican, I would say that has alot to do with many things

Voltaire said "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

How does one go about boycotting Israel?

On an individual level one doesn't buy produce or goods produced in Israel , on a business level one doesn't do business with Israel ... simple really.

That's completely un-Constitutional, no one in government can tell you who you should or shouldn't criticize.

I've made it no secret that I am a clear and open supporter of Israel.

That being said, this is stupid.

It's just like not being able to get government relief because you think Trump is a good guy, or "orange Man Bad" or not getting hurricane relief because you like having sexual relationships with large wheels of cheese.

It makes no sense.

In the most general terms, one can participate in the movement known as BDS, Boycott, Divest and Sanctions against Israel for their crimes against the Palestinians.

Typical Israeli supporter tactics

Instead of attacking or trying to discredit me by casually mentioning my cheese fetish how about you address the thread premise?

I do not agree with boycotting Israel. What I don't want is the state telling me I can't buy Israeli products. I buy Israeli teas, firearms and accessories, and other products with regularity.

This whole boycott Israel thing was started by a bunch of Jew hating pro-terrorist leftists. I dont much care what they think.

But this idea that services will be withheld, predicated on opinion, is unconstitutional.

I wonder if someone will say the same about a similar contractor ban in LA with regard to the NRA....we'll see.

Could someone enlighten me as to what is Israels main exports to the states? I think you'll find Israel has many billions more from America than what comes from Israel.
