I really hope “this”:http://www.bxa.doc.gov/news/2002/antiboycottcompliance5_14_02.htm is some kind of biased smear campaign (or a hoax) and I’m just missing the other POV, but apparently the Bureau of Industry and Security at the U.S. Department of Commerce has a regulation

bq. ??prohibiting U.S. persons from taking any action in support of foreign government boycotts against Israel.??

bq. ??The U.S. Government stands firm in its policy of opposing restrictive trade practices or boycotts against Israel. The Commerce Department is committed to using all of its resources to oppose economic boycotts against Israel and corporations that do business with Israel.?? said Under Secretary for Industry and Security Kenneth I. Juster

Is this even possible? It’s a really old link (more than a year old) but it’s troubling none-the-less.
