Recently we have seen a rash of Labour councils flying, or being forced by mobs of savages to fly, a flag representing ‘Palestinian’ Islamic terror groups. This time it is Glasgow that is going out of its way to treat terrorists who hide behind children and who promote genocide as victims and classifying oppressors as the oppressed.
According to the BBC, a row has broken out over the decision by the Labour supporting Lord Provost of Glasgow Sadie Docherty to fly a ‘Palestinian’ flag.
The BBC said:
Lord Provost Sadie Docherty said it would be raising the flag in solidarity with people who had been affected by the conflict in Gaza.
But the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council president said it was “angered and hurt” by the council’s decision.
Paul Morron said: “Flying the flag is the worst kind of gesture politics.”
He said such a move “does nothing to alleviate the suffering on either side of the conflict, nor does it bring peace closer by one single minute”.
In a letter to the mayor of Bethlehem, Councillor Docherty said: “As Lord Provost of Glasgow I write in response to the statement issued by Bethlehem City Council in relation to the ongoing violence in Gaza. I offer heartfelt sympathy to the people of Gaza who are suffering during this most recent outbreak of violence.
“Glasgow is home to many friends of Palestine and this is a deeply distressing time for them. They represent a variety of ethnicities, political persuasions, faiths and none. However, they are united by a common desire to support the Palestinian people.
“In solidarity with Bethlehem and Palestine, Glasgow City Council will raise the Palestinian flag on Friday 8th August. We hope that peace can be found to ensure the human rights for the people of Palestine.”
This is indeed as Mr Morron the representative of Glasgow Jews has said the ‘worst kind of gesture politics’. However it is a gesture designed to keep Glasgow’s Muslims on the side of the Labour party and is yet another indication of how much Labour is going out of its way to pander to and appease Muslims and Islamic interests.
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty disgusted by the naivety and foolish statement put out by the Lord Provost in response to the statement issued by Bethlehem City Council. Does the Lord Provost fail to comprehend that Bethlehem, the geographical birthplace of the Christianity followed by many Scots, has seen an ethnic cleansing of Christians by Muslims? I’m especially moved by her comment that ‘Glasgow is home to many friends of Palestine’ which when translated means ‘our city is filled with Islamic savages screaming for the blood of Jews’. If the Lord Provost wanted to make a political statement for peace then they could have flown both the Israeli AND the flag of the so-called ‘Palestinians’.
This is nothing more than a political gesture designed to curry favour with Muslims who Labour is increasingly relying on as vote fodder.
