Poll: Israeli public supports boycott law

The anti-boycott law is already considered the most controversial to come out of the current Knesset, but it seems that this controversy exists mostly in the media, and outside Israel.

A recent poll, done for the Knesset channel and posted on the rightwing Srugim site,  52 percent of the Israeli public supports the law, and only 31 oppose it – not very different from the majority the law received in the Knesset. In that sense, the Israeli Parliament members represent their voters perfectly.

Srugim didn’t provide the data for the poll or the original questions asked, so we should take these numbers with a grain of salt. Also, the polls was apparently done in the morning following the vote, so the results might change with time.

According to the poll 43 percent of the public think the law will hurt Israel’s image in the world.

      From what I’ve read, I think we should oppose this Law. However, before passing definite judgment I’d like to read the original text as approved by the Knesset. Does anyone here know where to find it?

    2. The Office of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran

      Democratic norms will of course be your downfall. In Iran what 51% of anyone is in favor of is largely irrelevant. You silly Israelis and how you desperately cling to what people vote for. If we wanted anarchy we’d stop governing altogether.

      Under the firm hand of sharia inspired and guided anarcho-syndicalism we will win and you will be assimilated.

      The harder you struggle the more you will suffer.
