ACLU slams Israel lobby group's backing for anti-BDS bill | The Electronic Intifada

We must keep watch to be sure such legislation fails here.

The proposed US  Israel Anti-Boycott Act, a bill that could impose large fines and long prison sentences on those who boycott Israel has faced stiffer than usual resistance in the US Congress after the American Civil Liberties Union denounced it as an unconstitutional attack on free speech rights.
