Are there any groups like BDS boycotting Peru, or Denmark, or Malaysia?
Support is not the same as not boycott.
The pledge is clearly meant to show support. There is no credible reason otherwise why it would exist.
BTW do you think there are any pledges involving Peru, or Denmark, or Malaysia? No.
This pledge is political and religious in nature, and is a clear violation of the Constitution.
This was my first thought and pretty much says it all. Boycott seems to be a strong word, but I think it was one of those things that if you aren't with them, you are considered against them. Religious beliefs have no place in law.
I absolutely understand your concern for this issue - if I were from Israel, I would probably feel the same way. But, this whole thing pretty much goes against the US Constitution and there is only one reason people in the states would have such overarching support for one country (other than ours) and that is religion. It's yet another sneaky thing that christians are trying to force down everybody else's throat.
I certainly don't wish ill on the people of Israel - seriously, I wish you and them all the best; I just don't feel there is a reason to give them preferential treatment over the people of Peru, Denmark, or Malaysia.
