Texas & the Constitutional Right to Boycott


In this episode of “Occupied Thoughts,” Peter Beinart interviews Texas speech pathologist Bahia Amawi and CAIR attorney Gadeir Abbas about the fight for the right to boycott Israel in Texas. After she lost her school contract for refusing to sign an agreement promising not to boycott Israel, Bahia sued the state of Texas – and won. In response, the Texas government amended their anti-BDS law. A few weeks ago, CAIR – the Council on American Islamic Relations – filed a lawsuit challenging the new amended Texas law.
