Iceland: Reykjavík City announces boycott of Israeli products

Why do they feel the need to engage in such dhimmitude? What is the payoff for appeasing the Fakestinians? After all, Iceland is one of the few places in the world with no real danger of Islamic invasion. Go figure…

Planck’s Constant has the story:

On 16 September 2015, Iceland Magazine reported that the Reykjavík City Council voted the day before “that the city would not purchase any goods manufactured in Israel as long as the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories continues.

The boycott’s purpose was intended to condemn “the Israeli policy of apartheid” in the occupied Palestinian territories. I would like to point out to the idiots who voted for this act that there were Jews in Gaza for thousands of years, however there are zero Jews present in the Gaza Strip today while in Israel there are almost 25% Arabs, non-Arab Christians, non-Arab Muslims and residents who do not have an ethnic or religious classification; in addition there are 16 Arabs as members of the 120-body national legislature of Israel (the Knesset).

As well, according to an annual study on democracy, the majority of Arabs in Israel are proud to be citizens of the country, trust the Israel Defense Forces, the President of Israel and the Supreme Court of Israel.

As I reported in my article Is Israel an Apartheid State?, there are more Muslims (1.3 million ) living in itsy-bitsy, teensy, weensy, tiny, itty-bitty Israel than all the Jews (83,512) living in all 50 Muslim-majority countries.

Apartheid state? How about under Israeli rule Arabs have more opportunities than most Arabs in Arab countries.

It happens that Christian populations are declining in all areas under the control of the Palestinian Authority and other Muslim countries while increasing in Israel.

If you are of the Baha’i Faith, where would you go to put your most holy relics for safekeeping? Where in the whole world can one find a place where the people are not racists nor bigots, where they do not persecute you for your religion, where all religions are, in fact, tolerated? Why Israel, of course.

Do any of the above sound like an apartheid nation?
On that same day of the FaceBook post, the mayor of Iceland’s capital backtracked on the scheme: the council didn’t mean to boycott all of Israel, but instead only on products from territories occupied by Israel; that is, only on products from the Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Obviously, the council, as well as most leftists in the world, does not realize that the occupation of the West Bank is a fiction; the area is properly calledJudea and Samaria and it was liberated by Israeli soldiers in 1967.

“After all, Iceland is one of the few places in the world with no real danger of Islamic invasion”

Not quite so for over the summer of 1627 Iceland was raided by Muslims (Barbary Pirates) and they took many hundreds of Icelanders off to sell as slaves, only a few dozen ever making it home after many years.

However that experience if anything should have made Iceland more wary of Muslims, not more open to them.
