Hi Twitchy - great point.

To reduce the damage, the Sanhedrin can try to make a buck off me but since I legally stopped paying income tax (don't tell anyone) and I make purchases of Gold and Silver along with certain exploration stocks, I'm thankfully doing better than the vast majority of people who post on this ATS forum and I suppose also in my home nation.

I also try to avoid buying the special "(K)" products but they seem to be hiding them everywhere (I'm getting older so my sight is getting worse) and using all sorts of different labels to try and pull a magic trick on all my hard earned fiat-currancy.

Great magicians aren't they?
I'm in the same boat about Gold & silver & income tax. What country are you from & what method did you follow to get out on income tax?

I'm fortunate I live in Canada. My day job employers are smart enough to keep the organization "centered" in an off-shore nation. The exposure to risk (geo-political and bureaucratic) in our industry (and others) is to be minimized as a matter of corporate self-preservation.

I am sorry that Americans cannot not do biz with those whom they chose. I'm unaware of this law until reading this thread and I find it semi-sorta-kinda well, un-American and more a thing I'd associate with a "closed" nation like Cuba or one of the socialist liberal "democracies." Capitalism is based on such self-evident liberties. This sounds like "Hugo Chavez" and not 43 and I hope it works out to the satisfaction of all factions.

I just read that any American or company that boycotts Israel can be fined hundreds of thousands and also with possibility of jail time. But it gets even better, if you (as a corp) so much as fail to report to the authorities that someone approached you asking about boycotting Israel, you can still be fined thousands.
Several companied have already been fined. Sources are available upon request and I'm hoping for discussion before posting any links.

So what is this nonsense? How come we can boycott Great Britain, or Canada or Barbados but we cannot boycott Israel?

Who said we can boycott those countries? And the reason we can't boycott Israel is because you don't want to see what happens in America the day we stand against Israel. It's for our protection, deal with it.

It,s a simple enough problem to solve..

You don,t ''boycott'' the goods..You simply tell the suppliers that their services are no longer required..No political statement,no reason given..

If they are a legitimately minded company then they will have to accept that more suitable/better quality/less expensive goods are being purchased elsewhere.Just have a list of alternative companies ready for when they go screaming the obvious Anti-semetism bs.

To answer your question - the (unconstitutional) law against boycotting is mentioned in regards to Israel. We should be able to boycott the goods and services of any nation, including Israel. As usual our corrupt goverment forget who they represent.

And the reason we can't boycott Israel is because you don't want to see what happens in America the day we stand against Israel. It's for our protection, deal with it

So what would happen to America if we stand up to Israel? Since the world is already angered at the biased US support for Israel, and since Israel is nothing without US support, than what could possibly put the USA into any more danger now than to CONTINUE SUPPORTING ISRAEL? Your statement that it is for our own protection to have a law preventing a boycott for our own safety sounds very much like doublethink.

They may imply it’s the rational but is it really the rational in light of the fact that companies have been fined and never colluded with the enemy.

The boycott itself they are saying is 'joining' the enemy against a US ally. Thats a generally rational idea, but, clearly, doesn't seem like it fits well with a free market.

Can we all stop bringing other threads here to discuss?

Lets stick to the topic at hand, the other topics can be discussed in the other threads.

I was just speaking to a yanky mate and he told me the minimum wage in the US was like $5 an hour and i was shocked to say the least. In Australia the minimum wage is like $12.30 an hour why is that ask ?, cause Australia has not given Israel $240 billion since 1973 like the USA has. Come on guys what is Israel doing for your average US citizen beside drastically lower your standards of living ?.


and like the signature says......

I thought this was pretty funny

Is everything someone elses fault?Arabs started this now? LOL The divestment from Israel plan on College campuses is being carried out by students all across the world just like we did to South Africa for their Apartheid policies. Do they believe Americans are that stupid? People can no longer feel that racism is wrong unless they feel its being directed towards Judaism apparently and then its totally wrong even when its non-existant.

In November 2003, Boycott Watch sent a letter to the Office of Antiboycott Compliance, furnishing evidence that the divest-from-Israel campaign is a direct function of the Palestinian Authority, which is a member of the Arab League and a signatory to the Arab boycott of Israel.

This is fairly typical of the special laws the Israeli lobby has been able to get through Congress. I believe there have even been attempts to legislate against certain kinds of criticism of Israel, though I think those went down in flames.

This is interesting. So now I find out within a couple of days that not only is it illegal to feed the homeless in certain parts of the US, it's also illegal to boycott Israeli goods.

Therefore if someone sees newscasts showing Israelis destroying apartment blocks and killing children, or targeting UN observers, or targeting amubulances, and feels justifiable disgust, they can't officially boycott Israeli goods or suggest that others do so? And this is supposed to be because they would be necessarily aligning themselves with the Arab world?

So much for the US being a "free country".

So it's perfectly okay for the GOVERNOR of Alabama to call for a boycott of Aruba because of one missing girl, but it's illegal to boycott Israel? Talk about double standards.

Personally, I feel if we annexed Israel as a state of America, our issues can be solved. Once we bring that rogue nation under American control, all will be well.

I am going to have to be going out my way now to identify food that does not carry the kosher label of approval. When I first found out about it I just could not bear to try, because if you go to any supermarket and grocery store, ALMOST EVERY SINGLE ITEM HAS THAT STAMP!!!

Do you guys think there is anything we can do to stop this nonsence?

Check the barcodes and refuse to give them your money.
Supply and demand and all that ...

On a bigger scale ? I'm not quite sure, I'm not American so I haven't had to deal with such lunacy.

ImJaded, the next time you go shopping, could you please check the aisles and see if any of the food has the Kosher markings on them? I just want to know if these Zionist brandings are on food in other nations as well.

Please just let us know if any of those stamps are on any of your food.

isnt it up to the populace what they buy and so forth?
if the company cant boycott israeli goods then the consumer can easily stay away.
the only person making the loss will be the israeli firm since the shop wont want any as non of their stock will be sold and wont need any new stock anytime soon.

at the US
whats happend to the land of the free?

Kosher has nothing to do with Zionism.

Kosher just means food is prepared in ways that meet Kosher dietary regulations - IE separating meat from dairy, etc...

It's so food producers don't lose sales to American Jews for not being Kosher, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the State of Israel. The Kosher stamps don't mean the food was produced in Israel or anything like that.
