    Teacher Sues Texas After Being Fired For Refusing to Sign Pro-Israel Contract

    So much for Don't Mess With Texas. Texas is Israel's bitch.

    Pflugerville Independent School District, school contractor refused to sign pledge she won't boycott Israel while under contract.

    My question is, just learned from article this is now 17 states, you mean people are actually signing this thing? I wouldn't want that teacher-contractor teaching my kids about the Constitution.

    TEACHER SUES TEXAS AFTER BEING FIRED FOR REFUSING TO SIGN PRO-ISRAEL CONTRACT
    BY DANIEL MORITZ-RABSON

    A children's speech pathologist lost her job for declining to sign a document requiring she refuse to boycott Israel, according to a lawsuit filed against the Texas attorney general and a school district on Sunday.

    Bahia Amawi, who had worked at the school district for nine years, was given a new contract in September. The document required her to affirm "that she does not currently boycott Israel and will not boycott Israel during the term of the contract." When she declined to sign, she "was forced to terminate her contractual relationship with the school district."

    "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 said, according to The Intercept.

    In May 2017, Texas became the 17th state to prohibit contractors from supporting a boycott of Israel.

    I'm glad she was fired. I certainly wouldn't want an America-hating anti-semite like that teaching my children.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Why on earth would anyone need to be called anti semite for refusing to refuse anything ?

    My allegiance is to American no one else, I'll never be an Israel Firster.

    War crimes, thievery , and Like Islam , these are the two most self inclusive , narcissistic
    , racists sects on earth.
    So how is it that Boycotting anything suppresses Freedom, freedom of choice, free speech?

    Is Israel not repeating Hitler's mistakes?

    I imagine this forum would 100% agree with the law that bans the use of public funds for abortions. So this forum does agree there can be conditions on the use of public funds. A pro abortion activist would scream "REEEE YOU ARE VIOLATING MY RIGHTS VIEWS AND SPEECH", but that wouldn't be true, people are still free to get abortions, they just have to pay for it themselves.

    This case is the same. The Texas law sets conditions on the use of public funds. This person is not being fined, penalized, or thrown in jail for her views/speech. She is not being denied access to a public square to express her views/speech. If her work is so vital and important, she is free to start her own business, and the parents/children that use her services can pay her directly. The public school is under no obligation to provide this advanced speech therapy for free, using my tax dollars. This is not a constitutional free speech issue.

    Maybe you disagree with the law. But that is a political opinion, you are free to advocate for and if you can get enough votes, you can change the law.

    Personally, I'm fine with the law and don't want my tax dollars used to pay potential anti-Semites and potential Jew haters.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    Well since it is public funds, then I would think that the aim would be to get the best bang for our buck and the best possible people to perform the job. I fail to see what ones personal views on the state of Israel and boycotts has to do with speech pathology. She wasn't teaching history class. Are you concerned she was going to have kids working on their speech impediments by saying "hitler, himler, third reich, nazi" and similar?

    Why just izrael?

    The oath should prevent the criticizing or boycotting of any foreign State.

    We dont want our tax dollars used to pay potential anti-[insert group name here] and potential [insert religion name here] haters.

    If you think it is worth it and can get a majority of votes in a representative legislature, then go for it. I don't see how that is different than denying public funds for abortion. You have people that are pro abortion, you have people that are anti abortion. The difference is the anti abortion people are in the majority and made the law.

    Yeah, I’m not seeing where she is advocating anything at work. Thus, state funds are not paying for any particular political opinion or religion.

    On the other hand, it is accepted and often encouraged for teachers to push all kinds of leftist political activism on the job.

    BEIRUT: U.S. Senator Ted Cruz was booed offstage during a dinner for the Middle East's Christian conference in Washington D.C., with his pro-Zionists comments causing many Lebanese figures to withdraw in anger, including the Lebanese ambassador to the U.S.
    As part of the controversial speech that led to the withdrawal of Ambassador Antoine Chedid, Cruz evoked the old argument that whoever disliked the state of Israel was anti-Semitic and did not follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
