Outlawing Criticism of Israel?

Rick Santorum’s already in a fair bit of trouble. If there’s any truth to this report, he’ll be — or should be — in even more. The article, from San Fran’s Indy Media, says that Santorum is leading the charge to amend Title IX language so that a school could lose its federal funding if anyone engages in criticism of Israel.

This article is almost certainly erroneous in some way. The real question is how much truth is there… Does anyone know anything more about this?

UPDATE Nick Duquette adds this:

Actually, there’s already a law on the books prohibiting boycotts of Israeli goods, according to a magazine someone loaned me on my UK exchange titled the New Internationalist. It makes no bones about its leftist stance, so take it with a grain of salt, but apparently it was passed in the 1970s and has been broughtback and was actually used against a news agency called La Voz Aztlan promoting an Israeli boycott. It’s in the July 2002 issue of the magazine, a sitebar taking up half of page 7 if you want to pursue it.

Simply appalling.
