A county council in Scotland has expressed its support for boycotting Israel.

Clackmananshire County Council, the smallest local authority in Scotland, passed a motion in which it resolved to “resist, insofar as legislative considerations permit, any action that gives political or economic support to the State of Israel.”

The motion, passed last week without opposition and with only three abstentions, also compared Israel to apartheid South Africa and hoped that “individual and collective sanctions against the State of Israel will end apartheid and suffering in Palestine.” The move has been condemned by Britain’s Jewish community and pro-Israel groups.

A statement from the Fair Play campaign group — an organization set up in 2006 by the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council — criticized the council.

“The idea of Clackmannanshire Council having its own foreign policy is ridiculous. This misguided and offensive motion will have no impact on the real world, a fact acknowledged by the motion itself when it stresses that it will only act ‘insofar as legislative considerations permit.’ We urge the Council to grow up and abandon this biased stunt of a motion,” the statement said.

  1. The same Scots that let loose a terrorist that massacred almost 200 hundred Americans – mainly kids – for a few barrels of oil. Speaks for itself.

  2. UK and Scots always were anti-Israel and anti-Jewish since the royal family is also made up of members who were the NAzi leaders hence in embarrasment, they changed their last name to windsor.
    However, since they wear nothing under their kilts, obviously theu have no balls nor morality which is why the royal family vacations there more than their own.
    occupied called Ireland. Libya knew to blow up Pan Am 101 over Scotland since they knew they would have Scottish support since their own citizens were of less value than their sheep sho survived and the blood oil they drink!

  3. Tell the truth sean – you're pissed the oil countries refuse to exchange any more oil for your terrorists aren't you. I guess 200 massacred by you and your friends is enough – even for them

    By the way, other then terrorists, do the dress wearing scots offer anything other then scrotum-free skirt wearers to export? And I continue to be curious how Jew hating sludge always come to Jewish sites to spew forth. Must be because they know if they exhibited their islamophobia, they would be blown up.
