British Trade Unions To Boycott Israel

Lovely..let's show those damned Jews!

British labor unions agreed Thursday to support a boycott of some Israeli goods in response to IDF Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip.

The boycott, approved at the annual conference of the Trades Union Congress, calls for a ban on importing goods produced in some Israeli settlements, an end to arms trading with Israel and disinvestment from some companies.

Union officials said the boycott would target products including dates, herbs, fruit and vegetables grown on Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

"We will support a boycott of those goods and agricultural products that originate in illegal settlements through developing an effective, targeted consumer-led boycott campaign," the TUC said in a statement, which also included a condemnation of Hamas rocket attacks on Israeli citizens.

Oooh, a condemnation of Hamas. Boy, that ought to teach them something!Do these cretins think that if the Israelis hadn't gone in force to Gaza, the attacks on Israel would have magically stopped?

Meanwhile the UK government is giving Hamas aid that's enabling them to rebuild their war machine to fire more rockets at Israeli civilians. And dealing actively with Hezbollah and Libya.

So, let's get this straight. Because the Israelis chose to defend their civilian population from rocket attacks,this British trade Union group is going to decide where Jews are allowed to live and try to ruin economically any that don't agree to their diktat. There's no similar restriction on Arabs and no fuss about any other country but Israel. That should give you the proper name for this.

I haven't forgotten that it was Britain who doomed millions of Jews to the Nazi death camps because they refused to let them come into Palestine, a mandate the Brits only held from the League of Nations with the proviso that they were supposed to facilitate the creation of a Jewish homeland. Instead, they did their very best to make sure it never happened.

Less than three years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the British were arming, training and in the case of Jordan officering Arab armies whose announced intention was a jihad designed to murder every Jew in Israel down to the last child.

For a lot of them, things haven't changed a bit. Drool, Britannia

I am proud to say that my great-great uncle was a resistance fighter who blew up British soldiers who occupied Israel during the mandate.

Just a side note. Notice Alpha says British soldiers...not civilians, not women and kids.

They weren't Hamas or the PLO.

Even when the Irgun blew up British headquarters at the King David Hotel, they phoned in advance to allow civilians to evacuate.
