Skip to comments.Scotland: Glasgow districts boycott Israeli books
Posted on 05/27/2011 11:44:11 AM 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.

The oh so superior Europeans can use the anti-Israel guise to mask their anti-Semitism. How proud these people must be to be able to channel their Jew hatred into a noble social goal.
Maybe they’d rather read about the exploits of the genocidal savage Mohammed, or how cell phones can be used as remote bomb detonators, or how to behead a human with a rusty kitchen knife.
OK, beginning today I’m boycotting...err...uh... Somebody, tell me, what does Scottland export that I should care about?
Great idea! I think they should also boycott all the Israeli contributions to the world in medicine, science and technology too so they can all go back to running around in animal skins just like their ancestors in the Stone Age.
No more shortbread from islamist countries, enabling or otherwise.
The ancestors of the Jews were also running around in animal skins in the stone age. The ancestors of Scots had as high or higher a level of civilization than the contemporary ancestors of the Jews. Leave it out. Can’t you criticize this council’s move any better, without also insulting everyone of Scottish ancestry, which is much of America, Israel’s best ally and only real friend besides God?
Haggis? Scotch? Yeah, retribution is tough in this case.
someone should take out Galloway , this rubbish is all emanating from him . a more worthless piece of garbage never walked the earth
I apologize for denting your thin skin!
These jerks released al-Megrahi to Libya not too long ago. Seems they don’t like American’s much either.
Besides it would be difficult to believe a golf lover could dis’ Scotland.
I wonder if this is the "special mark" they're going to use ...
Guinness Extra Stout is Irish, so I’m good to boycott Scotland. Their whiskey tastes like last years fireplace anyhow.
I get the feeling that Scotland is likely to go hard-left Communist the second they finally achieve full home rule from Britain.
You can save that too. I prefer genuine apologies, or none at all, and false ones reflect poorly on those that offer them.
Please! Just thinking about it makes me sick!
So You Want to Boycott Israel
You probably don't care about it but a key product for me is Scotch Whiskey.
