His Grace does not know why these anti-Semites don't just go the whole hog and start burning all books written by Israeli authors. It beggars belief that any democratically-elected municipal council in Britain can get away with such blatant racial prejudice and discrimination. The Council has no concern for the crimes and inhumanities of China, Iran, Sudan, North Korea or Zimbabwe, all of which have appalling records on human rights. Their focus is Israel, and Israel alone.It would seem that the Council has banned the idea of buying anything new that may have been produced in Israel. That, as His Grace points out, quoting Ray Cookewill present the odd difficulty in that the list of things they will now have to do without is a very long one and includes some important computer equipment and medication.
By this act, West Dunbarton has made anti-Semitism respectable and acceptable in a country whose leader is intent on eradicating all expressions of Protestant-Catholic sectariansm. In the Council, the SNP form the largest group. It is rank hypocrisy with more than a hint of Goebbels.
Read the whole list through one link or the other. No point in my copying it out. What exactly will the people of West Dunbarton think of this?
