Wow. I know israel is the 51st state and all, but they should butt out. And ironic considering the state of the State of Illinois pensions.

I would also hope other legislatures will follow suit. Israel is really the lone barrier in the Middle East between barbarianism and civilized societies. It needs to be supported.

The Israel Lobby is still very-very strong and deeply rooted in the U.S.. It will take a generation or two more for this to change.

Israel lobby has nothing to do with this. The BDS movement is detrimental and anti-Semitic at its heart.

Just the latest in boycotts by states and really not likely to have much effect except the states that vote such things in endwhich will restrict trade there. I am a supporter of Israel but do not favor politics by boycotts.

I will not allow you to hijack this thread with your hatred Frank DeBDS. Not sure where you decided my political party in this thread, but it certainly has nothing to do with the original topic.
