So you think the US states follow and believe in the Constitution?

The First Amendment says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

However, if you want to speak against or boycott the political apartheid in Israel You better watch out if you work for any state government entity in most of the US. In Texas, a born in America professional pathologist in a public school system was fired for refusing to sign a statement loyal to Israel and asserting that she would never participate or sympathize with a boycott in protest of what the foreign country of Israel does contrary to her personal observation or belief. "The vast majority of American citizens are therefore now officially barred from supporting a boycott of Israel without incurring some form of sanction or limitation imposed by their state. And the relatively few Americans who are still free to form views on this hotly contested political debate without being officially punished are in danger of losing that freedom, as more and more states are poised to enact similar censorship schemes."
