Texas Law Requires Businesses It Trades With to Swear Allegiance to Israel

Texas Governor Greg Abbott flew to Israel on a private jet that belongs to Sheldon Adelson, a billionaire political donor and lobbyist on behalf of Israel.  A year later, Abbott signed HB 89 into law, which prohibits state agencies from contracting and investing with any company that boycotts Israeli products.  Private businesses wanting to provide goods or services to Texas now must sign a statement swearing to place the economic benefit of a foreign nation above freedom-of-choice of American citizens to do business or not to do business with whomever they wish. -GEG

Governor Greg Abbott today signed into law House Bill 89 (HB 89), known as the Anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestments, and Sanctions) bill, which prohibits all state agencies from contracting with, and certain public funds from investing in, companies that boycott Israel. The Governor hosted the bill signing at the Jewish Community Center in Austin.

“I am proud to have commemorated Israel’s Independence Day by signing into law Anti-BDS legislation in Texas,” said Governor Abbott.

The bill, authored by Representative Phil King, prohibits the state of Texas from conducting business with companies involved in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. After the bill becomes law, it ensures that certain public funds are not invested in any entities participating in this movement. Additionally, state contracts will only be given to verified businesses to guarantee that Texas maintains a strong and supportive relationship with Israel.



Yes, you read that correctly.  All private businesses wanting to provide goods or services to the State of Texas, and get paid for doing so, must now sign a statement swearing allegiance to the foreign nation of Israel.

For example, just imagine that you are a Texas pediatric oncologist born in Palestine (the nation in the Middle East, not the town in Texas) and you choose to accept the very low fees to treat Texas’ poor children covered by Texas Medicaid and CHIP.  Apparently, you must now sign a statement supporting Israel’s apartheid government, and swear not to refrain from buying Israeli merchandise, in order for you to be compensated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission for your work as a physician.

There is a culture of having to take an oath being cultivated wherever we look. Most of the time this involves swearing to uphold the United Nations 19 sustainable development goals – a vague set of descriptions to make us swear allegiance to the Global Citizen core beliefs. It requires denying our nationality too. Just like these Texas businesses – a requirement to be disloyal to one’s own country.
