BDS has been controversial for awhile in Canada and I believe Rue posted about it on MLW.  I don't know how I feel about it.  I think criticism of Israel sometimes goes over into anti-Semitism but I don't think countries should be exempt from criticism either.

Rue has, got a stick up his ass, where every criticism is treated as antisemitism to stifle talking about the real issue. I would rather talk about the issue than get called a **** jew hater every **** reply. But rarely can I ever get to that stage and it's not like I have not tried.

I understand Israel is a US ally, but does this mean this kind of legislation is needed? I don't see this kind of thing in the US for any other nation.

What if the notion was to not boycott Russia? You bet there would be problems.  This kind of thing puts the US second and Israel first.

This forces you to do business with certain companies even if you disagree with them.
