A page about proposed or actual boycotts of Israel.
Focusing on Ireland.
Nazi boycott of Jewish shops
in Berlin, 1933.
The placards say:
"Germans defend yourselves! Don't buy from Jews."
And more images.
You would think that Europeans would avoid any boycott of Israel because of its echoes of the
Nazi boycott of Jews.
But sadly no.
There are vast numbers of people calling for a boycott of Israel.
I could not list them all.
All the anti-semites, Jew-haters, Holocaust-deniers and neo-Nazis.
Islamists, jihadists and terrorists.
All the communists, Stalinists, Trots and Marxists.
All the haters of America.
All the haters of the West.
All the terrorism fans around the world.
In Ireland, the Sinn Fein / IRA people.
And there are others that should know better, who line up with these awful people
instead of on the side of the tolerant liberal democracy of Israel.
Why throw this away just to make
and far-right Islamists happy?
Limerick boycott of the Jews
You would think that Irish people would avoid any boycott of Israel because of its echoes of the
Limerick boycott of Jews.
But sadly no.

In Odense, Denmark, in Dec 2008,
the mob at a similar kiosk selling hair-care products eventually
shot the Israelis.

They claim they don't want to be political.
Too late for that.
You've just made an ignorant political statement.
From their facebook.
Shame on them.

Shame on anybody who ever signed any of these petitions.
Irish politicians sign a
petition calling for sanctions against Israel, June 2004.
Of course, they all have signed similar petitions calling
for sanctions against
the Palestinian Authority,
Of course they have.
Proinsias De Rossa (Labour).
Michael D. Higgins (Labour),
"signing on behalf of the entire parliamentary Labour Party".
Mick Lanigan (FF).

and from the violent group Sinn Fein.

she says she has no sympathy for the
7 Jewish settlers shot in the West Bank
by a racist anti-semitic terrorist.
A pregnant woman lost her baby, but Lentin has no sympathy.
It is the Jews' fault for living in the "wrong" place.
They should know that living in that place would make racists like the shooter angry.
Gideon Levy article she approves of is here.
in a talk, Oct 2018, promotes a
by Menachem Begin.
See wider screenshot.
She claims the quote appears in "Begin and the 'beasts'", New Statesman, June 25, 1982.
But this is false.
Here is a photo
of that article
and the quote does not appear.

the Begin Center
Apparently she put this fake quote on p.100 of her book
Traces of Racial Exception: Racializing Israeli Settler Colonialism,
Ronit Lentin (Bloomsbury Academic, 2018).
Frances Black says Jews building houses is a war crime.
"I saw the impact of settlement expansion when I visited the West Bank ... I witnessed ... the crushing indignity of a Palestinian community having been cut off from its water supply which had been diverted to support an Israeli chicken farm. ... That commercial settlement built on stolen land beyond Israel's internationally recognised borders is a war crime."
Jews building houses is a "war crime".
But Martin McGuinness commits actual war crimes and she sings at his funeral!
The chicken farm story:
One also wonders if her story about the water stolen for a "chicken farm" is even true.
She never gave the name of the Palestinian community,
and repeated attempts to ask her online
met with silence.
Does this "Palestinian community" actually exist?

in the Irish Senate, 15 May 2018,
talks about the "despair" of the people of Gaza.
She never even mentions terrorism.
Israel is blockading Gaza for fun, apparently.
Who I block:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who:
(a) target my job,
(b) target my appearance, or:
(c) libel me (such as call me racist).
I will not debate such people.
I will block them.
