Texas Oath of Allegiance to Israel


Texas, OF ALL STATES, TEXAS!!!! passed a law in their House of Representatives 131 to 0, requiring loyal allegiance, not to the United States, but to the foreign country of Israel!!!!

If there was anything more sickening, more showing the dire need for a second American revolution in this country, I cannot hardly imagine it.

Pro-Israel Texas HB 89 Vote



You cannot even teach children in Texas unless you "voluntarily" sign a loyalty oath to a foreign country.

A Texas educator says she was fired from her job working with speech-impaired elementary school students because she refused to sign a pledge of loyalty to Israel.


Zionist Organization of America fully endorses Texas Loyalty Oaths to Israel


And not at all to anyone's surprise, our very own Jewish master Morton Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America has came out with full throated support for the Texas anti-BDS law which has now even been enacted by an Austin suburb into teacher contracts.

Interestingly, Jew Klein never once resorts to the favorite slur word "antisemitism" as his defense to loyalty to Israel. Even Jew Klein knows the stretch to call anyone objecting an antisemite is too far a push for loyalty and subservience to American Jews. Only subservience to Israeli Jews is demanded.

As loyal to Israel only "so-called American" Morton Klein says:

This is not a free speech issue, as Ms. Amawi and her friends in  anti-Israel circles wrongly claim. The Texas anti-BDS law has nothing to do with free speech. Ms. Amawi can continue to say whatever lies about Israel that she chooses — on her Facebook page, in the public square, at demonstrations, and in private all she wants — without violating the Texas anti-BDS law. She just can’t engage in discriminatory boycotts, discriminatory economic activity.
    -Morton Klein, Zionist Organization of America

Does this not prove Morton Klein to be bald-faced LIAR.
Free to denounce Israel on Jew Zuckerberg's Facebook. Yeh, is that nothing but the truth there Morty?  Come on Morty, you're just tweaking us to imply we have free speech rights on Jewish Social Media platforms, right?  Admit it!

Since our Jewish masters like Morton Klein have already pushed us this far in the "crime" known as discrimination (a term which Americans used to use as a term of moral pride in this country), it goes to remind oneself how far Americans have already been shackled into their no-free-speech, no-right-to-associate straight jacket by the antics of evil Jews like Klein, as Jew Klein pridefully reminds us all:

Moreover, contractor certifications not to engage in discriminatory boycott activity are similar to the numerous other non-discrimination certifications that government contractors are routinely required to sign. None of these certifications violate free-speech rights. Indeed, the very same form that Ms. Amawi refused to sign contains the following additional anti-discrimination certification barring state contractors from engaging in discriminatory economic practices based on race, religion, sex, etc.:

Vendor agrees to refrain from discrimination in terms and conditions of employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or handicap, and agrees to take affirmative action as required by Federal Statutes and rules and regulations issued pursuant thereto in order to maintain non-discriminatory employment practices.

  -Morton Klein, Zionist Organization of America

Just saying its true does not make it true. Yes, we lose our right to speak our mind and lose our right to freely associate  with others when discrimination laws are handed down by federal courts telling us not to speak our mind and not to associate with whomever we wish to associate with.

In fact, according to what Morton Klein just said, he is pleased you no longer have the right to criticize or freely associate with members of your own religion (unless you are Jewish), your own sex or the opposite sex if you prefer them more, your own national origin (unless you are Jewish), your own skin color, and now handicap as our anti-American anti-discrimination laws ever expand.

Morton Klein actually even holds out hope for the America's future when he states"

If the courts strike down Texas’s anti-BDS government contracting requirement, then all anti-discrimination government contracting requirements will be at risk of being eliminated.
        -Morton Klein, Zionist Organization of America

If only !!!

His Jewish heart is in the right direction after all. All the Jewish leader of the Zionist Organization of America wants is the right to force all American citizens, by law, to discriminate IN FAVOR OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.

By discriminating in favor of the Nation of Israel, you of course are forced to discriminate against all the people in the West Bank and Gaza.

No different from past "anti"-discrimination laws Jews have crammed down our throats, where you are forced to discriminate in favor of blacks, in favor of women, in favor of homosexuals, in favor of Jews and so forth, as you are forced to discriminate against white, heterosexual, Christian men.

More "wrong is right" thinking. Discriminate in the right way, so you don't discriminate in the wrong way. As Jews see it of course.

Morton Klein is just being true to his nature as a Jew.

Well, I have my own nature of what is true as an American Christian.


The Jewish Inspired
New Discrimination Standards
for Jews



Per standards established under Texas law and 25 other State legislatures, thus making for a democratic majority of the 50 States, American Christians should also be able to force dual-citizens of Israel to take an anti-discrimination loyalty oath to the country of America by permanently renouncing their Israeli citizenship in order to gain the privilege of living in this country.

And when we reject their loyalty oaths for the perjury everyone knows it would be, then these truly un-loyal single-citizens of Israel should be hastily expelled from this country as the foreign agents they truly are.

What is utterly sick and shocking in this sordid affair is that there was not a single one of millions of supposedly patriotic American Christian who stood up to the Israeli lobby to say NO! to this Orwellian oath to Israel, but instead took a foreign-born Muslim whom we were forced to look to in upholding American Constitutional principles and Christian morality.
  •  Unconstitutional by the courts to force Americans to take a loyalty oath to any sect of Christianity, but Constitutional per our elected leaders to take an oath to Israel's Judaism, which is the stated aim, by both Christians and Jews alike, for the religious creation of "God's Promised Land" of Israel for "God's Chosen People"?  Repugnant!!!
  •  Unconstitutional to force Americans to take a loyalty oath to our own nation of America, but we are constitutionally required by our political leaders to take a loyalty oath to the nation of Israel?  Anti-American!
  •  Constitutionally moral and just to embargo white South Africa for Apartheid against blacks, but  unconstitutionally immoral and unjust to embargo Israel for the same Apartheid against Palestinians they are occupying in the West Bank and Gaza?  Again, every bit our Christian American moral right to do the same as Jews have done to whites in South Africa.
  •  Americans lose our right to speech and further in this case, to be employed, because Israel has a greater right to continue the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza without criticism or consequence?  Wrong, wrong, wrong!
  •  A comment as to how wrong this oath is was summed up here:
This required certification about Israel was the only one in the contract sent to Amawi that pertained to political opinions and activism.

There were no similar clauses relating to children (such as a vow not to advocate for pedophiles or child abusers), nor were there any required political oaths that pertained to the country of which she is a citizen and where she lives and works: the United States.

In order to obtain contracts in Texas, then, a citizen is free to denounce and work against the United States, to advocate for causes that directly harm American children, and even to support a boycott of particular U.S. states, such as was done in 2017 to North Carolina in protest of its anti-LGBT law.

In order to continue to work, Amawi would be perfectly free to engage in any political activism against her own country, participate in an economic boycott of any state or city within the U.S., or work against the policies of any other government in the world—except Israel.

Texas Elementary School Speech Pathologist Lost Her Job for Refusing to Sign Pro-Israel Oath

A Texas educator says she was fired from her job working with speech-impaired elementary school students because she refused to sign a pledge of loyalty to Israel.

On Monday, The Intercept first reported, she sued the state and the school district that gave her the boot.

“Texas’s ban on contracting with any boycotter of Israel constitutes viewpoint discrimination that chills constitutionally-protected political advocacy in support of Palestine,” reads the lawsuit filed by children’s speech pathologist Bahia Amawi.

Amawi has worked with developmentally disabled, autistic, and speech-impaired elementary school students in Austin, Texas, for nine years, speaks three languages, and holds a master’s in her field.

The Pflugerville Independent School District included new language in their contracts this year requiring that employees “will not boycott Israel during the term of the contract,” and will refrain from any action “that is intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on, or limit commercial relations with Israel, or with a person or entity doing business in Israeli or in an Israel-controlled territory.”

Amawi, an American citizen and mother of four, said she was prepared to renew until she noticed the new clause.

“Absolutely not. I couldn’t in good conscience do that. If I did, I would not only be betraying Palestinians suffering under an occupation that I believe is unjust, and thus become complicit in their repression, but I’d also be betraying my fellow Americans by enabling violations of our constitutional rights to free speech and to protest peacefully,” she told The Intercept.

Amawi was told there was no alternative: Either Amawi signed the oath or the district, as a public institution, would not pay her.

And so she filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the Pflugerville school district, arguing that her dismissal was a violation of her First Amendment right to free speech.

“It’s baffling that they can throw this down our throats, and decide to protect another country’s economy versus protecting our constitutional rights,” Amawi said.

To her knowledge, Amawi was the only Arabic-speaking child’s speech specialist in the district, which lies in an area with a growing Arabic population.

“I got my master’s in this field and devoted myself to this work because I always wanted to do service for children,” Amawi told The Intercept. “It’s vital that early-age assessments of possible speech impairments or psychological conditions be administered by those who understand the child’s first language.”

The oath was included in Amawi’s contract as the result of an Israel-specific Texas law enacted in May 2017. The same law blocked some victims of Hurricane Harvey from receiving state disaster relief unless they first signed a pledge to never participate in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Similar laws are on the books in 25 other states—including Democratic-run states such as California and New York—meaning the vast majority of Americans are currently barred from supporting a boycott of Israel without facing some form of legal retribution.

In 2016, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order directing all state government agencies to terminate any business with companies that support the BDS movement.

Government employees are freely allowed to boycott American states or companies that conflict with their personal beliefs—as many officials did in reaction to anti-LGBT laws in North Carolina and Indiana.

Amawi could engage in any political activism against her own country and keep her job. That right seemingly does not apply to her activism on Israel.




Texas’ Anti-BDS Law Should Be Upheld
by Morton A. Klein and Liz Berney / JNS.org
December 28, 2018 11:18 am

With the help of an anti-Israel legal group, an admitted boycotter of Israel named Bahia Amawi sued a Texas school district and the Texas attorney general this week to try to overturn the state’s anti-BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) contracting law (Texas Gov. Code 2270.001, et. seq.).

Briefly, Ms. Amawi wants a renewed contract to provide speech-pathology services to Texas public schools, but is refusing to sign a non-discrimination legalcertification agreeing not to boycott Israel and companies that do business with Israel (including American companies that are targeted by the BDS movement) during the term of her contract. Her lawsuit deserves to be summarily dismissed by the courts.

This is not a free speech issue, as Ms. Amawi and her friends in  anti-Israel circles wrongly claim. The Texas anti-BDS law has nothing to do with free speech. Ms. Amawi can continue to say whatever lies about Israel that she chooses — on her Facebook page, in the public square, at demonstrations, and in private all she wants — without violating the Texas anti-BDS law. She just can’t engage in discriminatory boycotts, discriminatory economic activity.

Under settled law, secondary and tertiary boycotts such as BDS boycotts are not free speech.


Moreover, contractor certifications not to engage in discriminatory boycott activity are similar to the numerous other non-discrimination certifications that government contractors are routinely required to sign. None of these certifications violate free-speech rights. Indeed, the very same form that Ms. Amawi refused to sign contains the following additional anti-discrimination certification barring state contractors from engaging in discriminatory economic practices based on race, religion, sex, etc.:


Vendor agrees to refrain from discrimination in terms and conditions of employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or handicap, and agrees to take affirmative action as required by Federal Statutes and rules and regulations issued pursuant thereto in order to maintain non-discriminatory employment practices.

If the courts strike down Texas’s anti-BDS government contracting requirement, then all anti-discrimination government contracting requirements will be at risk of being eliminated. Do we really want state governments to give contracts to vendors who engage in blatant racial or sexual discrimination?

BDS boycotters (and vendors engaging in other types of discrimination) also cannot optimally perform government contracts. For example, even if an Israeli company (or an American company that does business with Israel) manufactures speech-pathology equipment that is 10 times better than any other speech-pathology equipment for the same price, Ms. Amawi will refuse to buy this vital superior equipment. The Texas students receiving Ms. Amawi’s services will suffer because of her discriminatory economic practices. It is surely legitimate for Texas to refuse to contract with someone whose bigotry towards Israel results in harm to Texas’ students and the Texas public.

In large-scale government contracts, there can and will be large-scale deleterious consequences to Texas if Texas is required to contract with vendors who boycott Israeli companies and boycott American companies that do business with Israel. Indeed, the BDS movement has targeted all-American companies such as Caterpillar, HP, and Motorola, which provide the types of equipment and services the government often needs.

Texas also has the constitutional right to go even further than the Texas anti-BDS goes. Texas could restrict the speech employed in a contract for a Texas-financed program. The US Supreme Court held that the government may prohibit Federal fund recipients from using those funds to express speech with which the government disagrees, stating: “[A] legislature’s decision not to subsidize the exercise of a fundamental right does not infringe the right” (Rust v. Sullivan, 500 U.S. 173, 1991).

Unfortunately, there is a great deal of misinformation being spread about the scope and content of anti-BDS laws in Texas and other states. To try to make Ms. Amawi seem sympathetic, some groups are falsely and misleadingly portraying her as a mere employee who didn’t sign a “loyalty oath” that impinges on her First Amendment rights.

The facts are that these laws do not affect “free association” or free-speech rights; the laws only concern discriminatory economic boycott activity. Second, the Texas anti-BDS law only concerns companies that contract with the government, including sole proprietorships such as Ms. Amawi’s business. State employees are not affected by the law. Third, the law requires contractors to sign an agreement not to boycott the products of Israeli companies and other companies (including American companies) that do business with Israel during the term of the contract; it is not a “loyalty oath.”

Anti-Israel boycotts also blatantly violate the Oslo Accords signed by Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA). The Oslo accords require the PA to cooperate economically with Israel. But instead, the PA and terror groups Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, instigated anti-Israel BDS as a form of economic warfare against the Jewish state. It should also be borne in mind that Federal anti-boycott legislation targeting the Arab League boycott, enacted almost 40 years ago, has never been overturned.

There are multiple victims of anti-Israel boycotts, including Jews with no relation to Israel (such as the singer Matisyahu), Israeli Jews, Israeli and Palestinian Arabs, and American and European companies targeted by the expansive BDS cordon. BDS has shuttered companies or forced companies to move, causing thousands of Jews and Arabs to lose their livelihoods through no fault of their own. By contrast, Ms. Amawi can easily obtain a government contract if she simply agrees not to engage in discriminatory boycott economic activity. And she can work in the private sector if she continues to refuse to end her bigoted boycott economic activity.

Ms. Amawi’s misguided boycott moreover hurts the very people whom she purports to want to help. Arab people on the ground in Israel and Judea-Samaria (aka, the West Bank) want more Jewish businesses to open and expand there. The 2015 Palestinian Center for Public Opinion poll found that despite theoretical “lip service” support for BDS, 55 percent of West Bank Palestinian Arabs said that they would “like to see Israeli companies offer more jobs inside” Judea-Samaria-the West Bank.

For the sake of all concerned, let’s hope that the courts toss out Ms. Amawi’s baseless, counterproductive lawsuit.
