Florida's Laws on Criticism of Israel Explained

Florida has a number of laws designed to stifle criticism of Israel. Some of these prevent the state from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. Others make it impossible for teachers to say anything negative about Israel. Some local legislation in Florida equates criticism of Israel with hate speech. Palestine Legal has provided an excellent summary of all these laws and the penalties for violating them at https://legislation.palestinelegal.org/location/florida/ We recommend that all citizens of Florida read this summary and contact their legislators to change them.

They deny Americans their constitutional rights of free speech and discourage advocacy of Palestinian human rights.
