Muslims are attempting to invalidate American laws that are designed to protect Israel from “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.” In a Texas lawsuit, a Muslim teacher is a pawn used by HAMAS-CAIR in their Jihad to legitimize discrimination against, and ultimately destroy, Israel.
Islamic goal to destroy Israel
HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, has a public relations agency, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in the United States. In a U.S. federal terrorism financing case, the Holy Land Foundation and its leaders were convicted of materially supporting HAMAS. In the Memorandum Opinion Order, the Judge noted: “The four pieces of evidence the government relies on … do create at least a prima facie case as to CAIR’s involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas” as listed in the U.S. Government’s Exhibit A. CAIR was named a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates in 2014: Fox News.
HAMAS’ Covenant: “The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations … The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews’ usurpation, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised … Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” Covenant, Articles 11 and 15, and Preamble.
Peace “initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement … Those conferences are no more than a means to appoint the infidels as arbitrators in the lands of Islam … There is no solution for the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility.” Covenant, Article 13.
The Palestinian BDS National Committee, promoting “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions,” has a mandate and role: “To strengthen and spread the culture of boycott as a central form of civil resistance to Israeli occupation, colonialism and apartheid.” In-other-words: Economically collapse Israel.
Texas supports Israel
“In 2017, the Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a widely supported anti-discrimination law prohibiting companies who contract with the State from invidious economic boycotts of Israel … Texas’s public policy ensures that discrimination has no home within its borders, and the State can rightly deny public funds to those who would act contrary to those foundational non-discrimination principles,” explaining Texas Code §2270, in the Texas Attorney General’s Response, page 1.
A restriction of free expression, claims a Muslim woman, against Texas
“On August 13, 2018, Pflugerville Independent School District sent Bahia Amawi a contract to provide the school district with Arabic assessment services. Ms. Amawi had been contracting with the school district for nine years. On September 10, 2018, the school district provided Ms. Amawi with an addendum to the contract, which states that Ms. Amawi affirms that she does not currently boycott Israel and will not boycott Israel during the term of the contract.”
“On September 17, Ms. Amawi informed the school district that she would be unable to sign the addendum, citing moral issues. Pflugerville Independent School District informed Ms. Amawi that it would not be able to provide her with payment if she refused to sign the addendum. Ms. Amawi refused to sign and was forced to terminate her contractual relationship with the school district,” alleged Amawi in her Complaint, paragraph 4.
Plaintiffs seek the Court to declare void any “No Boycott of Israel” clause in any state contract; enter an injunction against enforcement; and an award of attorney fees and costs, among other relief.
The court consolidated two lawsuits: Amawi v. Pflugerville Independent School District, Case: 1:18-cv-01091; and Pluecker et al v. Paxton et al, Case: 1:18-cv-1100.
The Texas law regulates companies, not people
“Chapter 2270 of the Texas Government Code does not concern personal economic decisions
or Plaintiffs’ right to freely express their views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Instead, it regulates companies that contract with the State and bars those companies from discriminating against Israel and Israeli businesses,” wrote the Texas Attorney General: “Plaintiffs here are sole proprietors who seek to engage in personal conduct outside of their business dealings with the State. Chapter 2270 does not restrict, or even apply to, that conduct.”
“The counter-boycott law codified in Chapter 2270 of the Texas Government Code is the
Legislature’s measured and targeted response to the economic warfare that has befallen Israel for over half a century. The first boycotts against Israel began with the country’s creation in 1948 and were aimed at the mere existence of the world’s only Jewish state.”
“These embargoes were institutionalized as early as 1951, in the Arab League’s Central Boycott Office in Damascus … In 1994, the United States International Trade Commission found that the Arab League Boycott – the prototype of the nationality-based boycott that Chapter 2270 responds to – cost Israel’s economy $2 billion a year … This decades-long commercial campaign against an isolated democracy – one of the country’s, and Texas’s, most trusted allies – undergirds these lawsuits.”
“The movement to boycott companies and citizens based on nothing more than Israeli nationality is an attempt to injure an American ally and citizens of our ally who have no role in formulating foreign policy,” concludes the Texas Attorney General: “Chapter 2270 simply provides that if a business chooses to engage in this form of nationality-based discrimination, that business may be choosing to forgo the privilege of receiving public money. Plaintiffs’ motions for preliminary injunction should be denied.”
HAMAS-CAIR pursues a Civilization-Jihad: Use the democracies’ laws and courts to “divide and conquer,” then destroy, the Infidels. These Islamists use Taqiyya as lies to twist constitutions and statutes on the federal and state levels in the United States.
As HAMAS’ public relations agency, CAIR has manipulated the media to misconstrue these cases as denial of Muslims’ right of free speech.
It is not a constitution, but rather a legislature’s preference that, to be eligible to contract with a government agency, a business must refrain from discrimination against Israel. That prohibition concerns a business, not an individual.
Bahia Amawi is a speech language pathologist, offering Arabic assessment services. In-other-words, a language instructor. How is this job description possibly to boycott Israel? In class, she could verbally disparage Israel, and she could pass out literature in support of the boycott. It will be unknown Amawi’s agenda in class, absent a school administrator’s oversight such as being physically present in the classroom. Monitoring should have been done during the previous nine years.
The Texas law does not affect Amawi, as an individual, who is free to support or reject policies concerning Israel.
These cases are examples of Sharia law being enforced in the United States. From HAMAS-CAIR’s perspective: Support of Israel is the equivalent of criticism of Islam. This premise is flipped up-side-down to allege Muslims have lost their freedom of speech against Israel. This is Taqiyya as lies by HAMAS-CAIR to dupe the liberal media.
Today, its “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” against Israel. Tomorrow, the same tactic will be used against the United States. Islamists have been embedded in federal and state governments. Upon reaching a majority in elective offices, Islamists will enact blasphemy laws.
Muslims’ tyranny will not happen under my watch as a citizen and attorney in the United States. America’s security is tied to Israel, the only democratic ally in the Middle East. I emailed the Judge to deny any injunction of the Texas law. As long as my freedom of speech is preserved, I am not forced to recite the Shahada, the Islamic creed.
