prohibits the entry into Israel of any foreigner who makes a public call for boycotting Israel
or boycotting the West Bank settlements.
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.

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).

A load of people from the Greens
and from the violent group Sinn Fein.
Ronit Lentin on

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.

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

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).
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 is horrendous and the injustice of it will stay with me forever.
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?
Was the Irish Senate vote on Israel swung by fake news?
The FG-FF coalition

apparently dumped the boycott Israel bill.
FF compromised on it.
So Ireland is saved from international disgrace (and possible US retribution) for now.
The boycott Israel people will not give up.
The struggle against them will continue.
Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists:
I love debate.
I love ideas.
But the Western left
and their friends the Islamic right
do not return the favour.
Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block.
See Who blocks me on Twitter.
I will debate almost anyone.
Stick to ideas and I will debate you.
But I do have rules.
See Who I block on Twitter.
The Twitter dark age, 2016 to 2022:

Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016.
You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas.
Starting in 2016,
Twitter became increasingly broken.
It became full of reporting and bans and censorship.
In 2019, Twitter even started

in 2022, Twitter's dark age of censorship may end.
Let's hope so.
