The British Israel-Boycott Debate...

It gets ugly....
A resolution by British lecturers last week to boycott Israeli universities was overturned on legal grounds. Jewish leaders condemned the vote, citing what they called "anti-Semitic" and "racist" overtones at a meeting held beforehand.

The balloting was held Wednesday at the University and College Union congress in Bournemouth. Delegates accused Israeli academics of complicity in Israel's acts against Palestinians.

This marked the fourth consecutive year that the Union voted in favor of boycotting Israel; the previous calls were never acted upon.

Especially disconcerting to Zionist Britons was a statement by Sean Wallis, secretary for the Union's branch at University College London, who reportedly said the position that a boycott was illegal was attributable to lawyers backed by people with "bank balances from Lehman Brothers that can't be tracked down."

The Islamic Republik of Britain will be a miserable socialist theocracy for anyone who hasn't had the Kool-Aid.

The 'Big Brother' cameras will soon be used to punish anyone who disrespects Allah during the five prayer times per day, no one will be allowed to go about their business during these times for fear of offending the authorities.

Britons are choosing this future even though they were warned decades ago. Idiots.
