British journalist's union votes to boycott Israel

Oh, I say, chaps..let's give the jihadis the Jews and maybe they'll leave us alone! And it's sooo progressive!

Britain's National Union of Journalists voted to boycott Israel yesterday - which should erase any lingering doubts about the one sided nature of coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict by the British press.

By a vote of 66 to 54, the annual delegate's meeting of Britain's largest trade union for journalists passed a motion that called for "a boycott of Israeli goods similar to those boycotts in the struggles against apartheid South Africa led by trade unions, and [for] the [Trades Union Congress] to demand sanctions be imposed on Israel by the British government."

I hope these scum are planning on setting an example themselves,dumping their laptops, cellphones and PC's and going back to manual typewriters and a couple of tin cans with a string.

All of Microsoft's newer Windows software was developed in Israel, and Nokia, Motorola and most other brands of cell phones used in Britain are either made in Israel or utilize components made there.

I likewise suggest that Israel boycott British journalists - by revoking their press credentials and visas and tossing them out of the country.

I am getting seriously tired of this nonsense.

as i can't remember what i had for lunch yesterday............
i've wondered and don't know if ff has stated in the past (see previous quote), if all the joooo hate coming from the UK, besides being a muslim country, stems from the israelis kicking the brits out of israel, and the means used to do it.
how's that for a run-on sentence???
i've always wondered if the lawerence of arabia thingy had something to do with it?

Hi, not really to answer your question.

The simple story is this. The Ottoman Turks had ruled the Arabs successfully for 5 centuries with no problems, and treated them like vermin.

TE Lawrence managed to raise a small and fairly unsuccessful guerilla group among the group of Arab Tribesman under King Faud.

These exploits were highly publicized and blown out of all proportion by one Lowell Thomas, who made it into front page news in America.

AFter the war, Britain and France divided up the Ottoman Empire, with Britain getting. among other things, Palestine in a League of Nations Mandate with the express assignment of creating a Jewish homeland ( one of Wilson's 14 points and expressly committed to by Britain under the Balfour declaration).

The British, however, realized that there was oil in them thar Ay-rab lands and created two kingdom's for Faud's sons to appease the Arabs - Iraq for Ali ( the one TE Laurence had the hots for) and TransJordan for Abdullah,with 80% of the Palestine Mandate.TransJordan was barred to Jews.

The Brits later reneged on any semblance of creating a Jewish homeland in what was left, restricting Jewish immigration by any means necessary while allowing unlimited Arab immigration, and finally cutting it off completely just as the Holocaust was about to get under way - thus dooming millions to death who didn't have a place to escape to.

The Brits even imprisoned Holocaust survivors who tried to immigrate to Israel in the very death camps they had just been liberated from, as well as a pest hole the Brits themselves created on Cyprus.

In 1948, the UN partitioned the remaining 20% of Palestine that was left and the Arabs declared jihad. As the Brits left, they turned over a number of strategic places to the Arabs and proceeded to arm the neighboring Arab nations with SOTA military equipment..and in the case of TransJordan, they even supplied British officers, under a notorious Jew hater, Colonel John Glubb.

Except a funny thing happened on the way to the jihad.

The British government has NEVER been a particular friend of Israel.

And oddly enough, I think the downturn in Britain's national prominence might be connected, in some weird way.
