Illinois makes support of Israeli apartheid the law

Jerusalem Post - An Illinois state agency named 11 companies barred from doing business with the state for boycotting Israel or its settlements, the first such designation by an official US body. A number of the entities on the list  have pulled money from Israeli businesses that operate in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, but have not boycotted Israel within its 1967 lines. At least two of the entities have said their disinvestment from Israel in recent years was based on commercial, not political, calculations. The Illinois law passed last year explicitly bars dealing with companies that boycott Israeli operations in territories controlled by Israel . .

Undernews - In keeping with the  spirit of the state's action, here are three major Illinois corporations  to boycott until it becomes legal to boycott Israel again: Walgreen, Sears Roebuck, Allstate.

Excellent to penalize boycotters.
