QUOTE

“As a Jewish American, who is frequently critical of recent Israeli administrations, I wonder whether my speech could be construed to run afoul of these restrictions. Or more likely, would a non-Jewish person making the exact same criticisms as me be considered anti-Semitic while I am not. That is the determination we are leaving to the State of Georgia to make and that is problematic,” said David Goldman, ACLU of Georgia policy counsel.
