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.”

This is NOT the same as signing a pro-Israel oath. FAKE NEWS.

This is akin to a pharmacy employee being required to not refuse service to, say, someone wanting a morning-after pill because they're Christian, or a grocer being required to sell ham (that the store carries) despite them being Muslim.

It doesn't force action or allegiange to Israel. It simply forbids certain anti-Israel (BDS) behavior. BIG difference.
