Protest "Illegal to Boycott Israel" Bill

See "Illegal to Boycott Israel Bills" Move Forward

A bill that would outlaw academic boycott of Israel by U.S. universities, under penalty of loss of federal funding, was introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives last Thursday by Jewish congressmen Peter Roskam and Dan Lipinski.  H.R. 4009, Protect Academic Freedom Act, is virtually identical to a New York State bill I discussed last week. (See NY Bill Defunds Colleges which Boycott Israel) Its stated purpose is "to amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 to prohibit an institution that participates in a boycott of Israeli academic institutions or scholars from being eligible for certain funds under that act."

Call toll-free 1-866-220-0044 or 1-877-762-8762.  

It is up to all lovers of freedom to immediately and loudly protest the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Higher Education & Workforce Training.

The operator will quickly direct you to their offices. 

Tell them: "Please do not support H.R. 4009, the Protect Academic Freedom Act.  It denies academic freedom of speech and action to American universities and scholars."
