Should Jews Fear An Independent Scotland? - BY Y. Y. RUBINSTEIN
«Scotland's politics, like its close Celtic cousin Ireland, are overwhelmingly left-leaning. Europe's Left is the home of an anti-Israel bigotry and hysteria, which since "Protective Edge" has very often morphed into 1930's anti-Semitism.»
«The Scottish Parliament, however, does not believe that this right we Scots claim for our people and country should be extended to the State of Israel and its people when they are unjustly attacked by thousands of rockets.
The Scottish government has called on the UK government in London to review and reconsider the arms export licenses it issues to Israel. Scottish town halls have displayed Palestinian flags as a token of solidarity with the people of Gaza.
I wrote an open letter to the Lord Provost of Glasgow, Sadie Docherty, a few weeks ago:
"In your recent letter to the Mayor of Bethlehem, you express your sympathy for the people of Gaza. You offer no sympathy for the people of Israel who have had to endure thousands of rockets fired at them by the democratically elected government of Gaza, the Islamist Hamas.
Hamas shares precisely the same ideology as the London underground bombers, ISIS, and very importantly from my point of view, the two Islamist terrorists who tried to kill so many Glaswegians at Glasgow airport.
Hamas calls for the killing of all Jews anywhere in the world, whether they are Israeli, Zionist, or like me, non-Zionist. In short Lord Provost, Hamas calls for the deaths of Glasgow's Jews..."
