Skip to comments.Scotland: Glasgow districts boycott Israeli books
Posted on 05/26/2011 9:12:26 PM PDT by CondorFlight
Two and a half years ago, shortly after Operation Cast Lead, the West Dunbartonshire Regional Council, located west of Glasgow, approved a bill that called to boycott goods produced in Israel.
Following the botched raid on the Turkish Flotilla to Gaza last May, the council expanded the boycott to include a ban on the purchase of English translations of Israeli books and the distribution of these books in public libraries throughout the council's jurisdiction.
West Dunbartonshire was joined by the large Scottish city Dundee. . .
Legal advisers instructed Dundee's mayor to refrain from legally enforcing the boycott in order to avoid future lawsuits. Instead, the municipality plans to distribute posters throughout the city, calling on some 150,000 residents to refrain from buying Israeli goods, and will also apply a special mark on Israeli products, in order to make them easily identifiable.

Does a ban on English translations of Israeli books include a ban on the bible?
The Scots are a dense-headed bunch. No wonder they’re always pissed off.
Now I begin to understand a quote I read about meeting Scotsmen of good sense everywhere ELSE in the world,meaning that those of good sense left Scotland whenever able.
Hasn't something like that been tried in Europe before?
They lost their bawls a long time ago
As a first gen American Scot, this makes me sad
What's next, a special mark on their (very few) Jewish citizens, in order to make them more easily indentifiable?
Meanwhile, the Islamic invasion of Europe continues, and the leftist idiots are unconcerned.
It looks like I’ll not be gifting Scotch this winter.
Good idea. Boycott all the medical books. The ones your doctors and nurses need.
“Hasn’t something like that been tried in Europe before?”

Yeah, they had a referendum. NOT! This is the “leadership” of trying to put Israel in a position to make concessions to muzzies. If their citizens go along w it, and they will, ignorantly, I don’t feel sorry for the consequences they’ll have met out to them.
The UK, by way of its kids’ glove treatment of Muslims there, has turned into an extremely fertile ground that breeds Islamists at a rate that can compete with the likes of Pakistan. I have friends there (Indians) who are now planning to emigrate. No-Go areas for non-Muslims are common in many cities. Even the police don’t dare to enter them.
All so sick, sick. . .sick.
The Scot’s have lost their minds....
I just posted this on facebook, and a liberal friend of mine has no problem with it and sees no comparison to early Nazi tactics.
Some people are suggesting a counter-boycott of Scottish products. . .
Europeans...attempting to persecute Jews, though Continents apart.
“and will also apply a special mark on Israeli products, in order to make them easily identifiable”
Like Nazi Germany? The UK is disgusting,,,,
The only problem is finding anything made in Scotland, or any reason to go to Scotland outside of golfing.
