Another little gem in the Toilet Paper Protocol (TPP)

Last edited Sat May 16, 2015, 08:14 PM - Edit history (1)

...the amendment would "include among the principal negotiating objectives of the United States regarding commercial partnerships...discouraging activity that... penalizes, or otherwise limits commercial relations with Israel".

One of the most important movements of our age, the BDS Israel movement will now be rendered contrary to trade law. F&*k this shit.

1. Israel borders on the Pacific ocean? Where is my atlas?

Gee, I wonder which country's representatives wrote that into the agreement? Do you think they put as much effort into protecting their own country's people?

7. The provision was actually inserted into the "compromise"

Trade Promotion Authority bill. It outsources other countries' political choices to America. with regard to Israel.

5. This means people boycotting products from Israel

could be subject to legal action?

That doesn't sound like freedom.
