EXCLUSIVE: Israel Vanishing from Scotland Libraries
INN ^ | Wednesday, April 10, 2013 11:07 PM | Giulio Meotti

One of Scotland’s councils has just implemented a boycott of Israel after comparing the country to apartheid South Africa. The Clackmannanshire Council declared it would resist all economic and political support for Israel in order to “end suffering in Palestine”. In Scotland, once known as the only European country which has no history of state persecution of Jews, a region is officially dedicated to the eradication of the Jewish State as a malevolent, “settler” and foreign entity.

Last year, the Scottish University of Dundee banned water from Eden Springs on the campus, because—it claimed—“it steals water from the Salukia spring in the occupied Syrian Golan, where it is bottled in the illegal Israeli settlement of Katzrin”. Another Scottish provincial council near Glasgow, West Dunbartonshire, in 2011 prohibited the purchase of English translations of Israeli books and the distribution of these books in public libraries throughout the council's jurisdiction. …

The Dunbartonshire decision marks the first time that a region in Europe has been cleansed of the presence of Israeli books. It does not matter what ideas are contained in these books; it is the bare fact of their origin which is enough for them to be banned.

What do they call the area occupied by Israel on their maps?

Should Israel really care what the Scots do? I think the life expectancy in parts of Scotland is lower than Afghanistan.

Squeemish Scots apparently prefer Saudi Sunni Sharia justice, tolerance and inclusivity.

The Fall of Western Civilization is sort of like watching the deliberate implosion of a building - the columns and walls that looked so solid a moment ago simply crumble into dust after a few carefully targeted charges are set off...

The world will turn against Israel, under the Antichrist, and attempt to destroy her (Zechariah 12:1-3, 14:1-5).

This will end in the Second Coming of Christ Who will destroy the world’s armies arrayed against her. Unfortunately, only 1/3 of Israel, the Remnant shall survive this period (Zechariah 13).

Expect more of this behavior from the world until that time.

These bigots do not speak for the people of Scotland. They are a minority of activist bigots, whose idiotic actions reflect badly on a populace they dont speak for.

“These bigots do not speak for the people of Scotland.”

Man, I really hope so. “Burning” books because of WHERE they come from seems so un-Scottish.

There, does that help?

They're still flacking for the old Soviet client-group.

Hey, Stephen!.

I dont hold all Americans responsible for the KKK, dont hold Scotland responsible for a few bigots.

scotsman,

There is a clear 100 year record of moral, legal, and political outrage in America against the KKK.

In modern Europe, specifically Socialist and academic Europe, there is a universally accepted, and utterly deceitful, theme of anti-Zionism, which is a thinly disguised excuse for Jew hatred.

The UK is a principal leader in this assault on Israel, and no one in Europe utters a word of criticism.

It is not “a few bigots.”

It is a commonly accepted political belief.

The Celts exist at a sort of junction of mystical Celtic nationalism and Marxist "national liberation" nationalism--the corner of Hell and Hell, one might say. Certainly present day Scottish nationalsm, which is left wing, is anti-Israel.

I ask FReepers to note the constant branding of Israel as a "foreign" entity. The notion that nations spring "organically" from their native soils is a nineteenth century myth of the European Right that has now been adopted lock, stock, and barrel by the Marxist Left, the latter having long shed itself of any pretensions to a "world proletarian state." To today's Left (as to the European Right of the past) the greatest sin possible is to be "foreign," an "alien implant" choking out peoples who are allegedly "autochthonous" to their areas. This, and not its capitalism, is probably the number one reason the Left so hates the United States of America, which is perhaps the most "inorganic" and "artificial" of all nations on earth. Of course, what these hypocrites forget is that all nations begin as foreign implants. The "autochthonous/indigenous people" is a myth.

Apparently they do speak for you whether you like it or not. And they do it with the full force of law behind them.

The narrative of the Scottish National Party is that that the Scots are "oppressed victims of colonialism" and that they are therefore somehow victims of the English.

Apparently the height of this oppressive colonialism came when a Scottish king became the absolute monarch of the English 400 years ago.

As a result, they see themselves "in solidarity" with all the professionally oppressed folks around the globe, like the "Palestinians", the "Chiapas", etc.

Of course, what these hypocrites forget is that all nations begin as foreign implants. The "autochthonous/indigenous people" is a myth.

Correct. It is a boring old myth of the 19th century. Can you think of any other boring old myths from the 19th century that still haunt the earth?

If, that report is true or not, that is there prerogative. Whatever they will abolish in their laws of council, it’s up to them and they have all the rights to do it. However, if your life is built up in the belief from the Bible, then whatever there are doing, nothing can hinder you in your faith. Believing that the Bible is the mere Word of God, then be built up in your faith that it is. I was raised up from a family of Bible believer. And up to this moment, I still continue in my faith that the Bible is real and this will guide my life up to the end.

The Israel==Apartheid meme used by Islamic supremacists and anti-semites falls flat when you look at Saudi Arabia and witness genuine apartheid.
