The U.S. Commerce Department is taking recent boycott threats leveled against Burger King, Disney and other companies by American Arab and Muslim groups “very seriously.” In a letter responding to concerns expressed by the Anti- Defamation League that the threats violate U.S. anti-boycott laws, the department said its Office of Anti-Boycott Compliance is “monitoring the situation closely” and “will initiate action if, after a full review of the relevant facts, action appears to be warranted.”
