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?”
You must be awarded The Most Astute Observation Award of the Day.
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.
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.IOW, the Nazis run Dundee and West Dunbartonshire.
Pathetic......Seems the United Kingdom is circling the drain.
Kauf nicht bei Juden!
I wonder if that special mark will be the Star of David? Then maybe they will make Jews wear this star so as to make them also more easily identifiable?
All the worthwhile Scots left over 100 years ago. All that’s left are communists.
Glasgow has a lot of Irish immigrants, from Northern Ireland, and they brought "The Troubles" over there, as anyone who witnessed an "Old Firm" soccer match can attest.
Amazing the log in the Liberal eye. Their perspective is rooted in the same ignorance that nourishes all manner and levels of totalitarian MO's - from those, shades of grey to 'the blackest holes of abject ignorance'. An ignorance, that like a bad weed, first 'sleeps'; then creeps. . .then leaps.
The alliance of the Islamic world with Hitler is well documented; as well as the truth that Hitler's Genocide against the Jews, was inspired by Islamic Jihad per Armenian(Christian) Genocide. No wonder the Left has a 'blind eye' for both the totalitarianism of the 'Nazi Socialists' and the threat of Islamic jihad and Sharia 'creep'; and of course, Communists in general. (They are 'it'!) The Left has, is - sourced/aligned - with the worst and most shameful of world histories - and many of the Lib-Left newbies - and older too, of course - do not realize and/or, get it.
(From the relevant to the seemingly innocuous and irrelevant; the ideas behind the MO's are embedded in the same ignorance that denies both 'freedom' and man's Divinely inspired humanity.)
While Obama, Inc. is full of totalitarian MO's; wonder if your friend might recognize any contradictions/correlations in this news-byte-lite, per Drudge headline:
VIDEO: DC Libs Sign Petition to 'Ban' Conservative Websites...
. . .a 'low level' variation of the more 'subtle' agenda put forth by Demorcat sponsored/Obama pushed. . .'Fairness Doctrine' (and all varieties of initiatives, sponsered by George Soros to silence the truth-tellers).
Think the worst of these people cannot help themselves as the 'log' is so deep; their vision of the world has solidified 'who' they are. Many more, are simply ignoring the irritation in their eyes. . .
Shame on Scotland.
