If we are concerned by foreign influence on Israeli politics, there are ways to fight that phenomenon without infringing on the rights of Israelis (see my posts above). But we all know that's not what is really going on here, as you make clear later in your post.
So let me remove the ambiguity. I am not playing devil's advocate. I do believe this law is wrong and that it's not the Knesset's job to legislate compulsory political views on contentious policy issues.The Supreme Court proscribes a bunch of unelected Leftism down the throats of Israelis who try to elect parties to effect platforms that those parties advocate. Like most of the Leftist positions (I'll assume for this duration that you are playing devils advocate, since there is no reason to get "personal") it is conclusive hypocrisy saying what you just said.
1) Are boycotts "fear tactics funded by Leftist sellouts and Arab money"?Sure, but they are not to be allowed to use fear tactics funded by Leftist sellouts and Arab money. They do not get those tools in their bag, because the rest of us said so, we the majority:Zionist Jews, unwilling to capitulate to the enemy.
2) Do you have proof of this claim of Arab funding to Israeli pro-boycott groups?
3) Does this principle apply more generally? Can the majority of Zionist Jews claim that homosexuality represents an unacceptable level of moral degeneracy and prohibit gay political activists from importing distorted liberal European morality to Israel? i.e. do you not see the majoritarian slippery slope you are advocating?
Fair enough. Then how about this: their property rights and rights to residence are uncontested as a matter of Israeli and international law.Funny word that, "universally" since you are trying to augment the position of the small, yet vociferous, left in the country otherwise.
You're going to have to state that in plainer English if you expect a response.Furthermore, just like the Fakestinian nation was born overnight, and every day we have a new demand or a variation of a demand, that if not politely accepted results in dead Jewish children and rain of metal parts dipped in rat poison, it is not beyond any moral guide stick to check the comfort level of the Israeli 5th column. Are we not living in a democratic state? Are we not playing block politics where the Leftists come and harass not individuals but whole communities... again whats good for the gander, will be good for the goose. The Left has abused its position for so long, we will bring the same response, the same level of stress on them and theirs.
You speak of "grassroots value systems" and "national consensus" as though all "real" Israelis agree with you, and only the traitors disagree. It's worthwhile to test those claims of yours.We hear your position, and the position of the Leftists who utter these words. And we politely disagree. Next. That does not mean you coordinate with foreign governments and entities and destroy the Israeli economy in order for us to capitulate. You do not use the latters funding on distributing said entities propaganda to our fearful population. You do not supplant grassroots value systems, and our national consensus with foreign help. Thats Sedition Curly, and I hope the law after this one puts people into prison on anything that even smells of foreign agents causing insurrection in our land.
Here are the results of a 2010 poll conducted by ynet:
"The poll also found widespread support for settlements. Despite the fact that just 6% of those polled have lived or had family living beyond the 1967 borders, 47% objected to the evacuation of all West Bank settlements in favor of an agreement with the Palestinians.
Among supporters of negotiations with the Palestinians, however, 48% supported the evacuation of all settlements in exchange for an agreement, while 75% of those opposed to the relaunching of talks objected to evacuations.
A majority of 58% supported a partial evacuation of settlements, but 47% agreed with previous governments' decisions to found settlements in the West Bank, while 40% did not. The figures show a waning support for settlements, as the same poll conducted in 2001 found that 61% agreed with the decision, while just 28% did not.
Opinions were split on whether the government should offer compensation to settlers willing to leave the West Bank of their own accord, with 49% supporting the move and 42% objecting.
However there was a relative consensus on support for the two-state solution. Only a small minority of 14% supported a plan founding a bi-national state west of Jordan, in which Israelis and Palestinians would have equal rights.
A majority of 66% supported the founding of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders with land-swaps allowing Israel to keep large settlement blocs."
