The Bureau is charged with administering and enforcing the Antiboycott Laws under the Export Administration Act. Those laws discourage, and in some circumstances, prohibit U.S. companies from furthering or supporting the boycott of Israel ...

The penalties imposed for each "knowing" violation can be a fine of up to $50,000 or five times the value of the exports involved, whichever is greater, and imprisonment of up to five years. During periods when the EAR are continued in effect by an Executive Order issued pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, the criminal penalties for each "willful" violation can be a fine of up to $50,000 and imprisonment for up to ten years.
Boycott Israeli products, go to prison for ten years.

The only thing I've heard of being produced there is Intel CPU's. They have fabs in other countries as well, though. I think there's a digit in the serial number stamped on each chip that indicates which plant it came from. A lot of their design work is done there too.

Israel is the fourth largest weapons exporter.
Citrus fruits.
Olive oil.
Tons of electronics. Intel chips, tons of cell phone components.
Microsoft Windows. Large swaths of Vista were developed in Israel.

I like your views, Mr. Weev.
You look like a pretty cool guy. Yuo troll morally and spiritually bankrupt targets and you don't afraid of anything.
