From the Department of Tribal Affairs, good for the ADL for standing up to Israel's self-destructive restrictions on protesting Israeli settlement policy or incitements to boycott:
The Anti-Defamation League has a long history of vigorous opposition to any and all boycotts of Israel, and works every day to expose and combat those who seek to cause damage to the Jewish state. We are, however, concerned that this law may unduly impinge on the basic democratic rights of Israelis to freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
Among Israel's many assets is its vibrant democracy – a fact clearly supported by the six-plus hour debate of this bill in the Knesset. To legally stifle calls to action – however abhorrent and detrimental they might be – is a disservice to Israeli society. We hope Israel's Supreme Court will quickly take up a review of this law and resolve the concerns it raises.
The ostensible concern prompting the restrictions are fears that Israeli faces international challenges to its legitimacy. Meretz MK put it very well to the Times: "I do not know of anything that creates more delegitimization of Israel abroad than these laws." Just so, as Syrio Forel would say. You fight arguments with better arguments. (There are good arguments against boycotts, and no good arguments in favor of the settlements.) Suing Arab members of the Knesset for challenging the legitimacy of the settlements is a gift to every Israel-hater worldwide, and a depressant to Israel's democratic and liberal-minded friends.
