It’s reported that Greens councillor Cathy Peters, who introduced the motion at last week's meeting, said the council’s move reflects the feelings of Marrickville's multicultural community and its sister-city relationship with Bethlehem.
Comments one local person, most sensibly, of these Marrickville dhimmiwits (http://www.australianislamistmonitor.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3961:australian-council-disgraces-itself&catid=205&Itemid=59):
"When Greens and Labor have too much power on local or federal levels, biased, whacky things happen. As we have seen in various ways over the past few years. Take a look at this recent absurd move of Marrickville Council ...
I am not Jewish but I am utterly appalled at this decision. Israel is a tiny land surrounded by aggressive Muslim nations and ... the aim of those nations is to deny Israel the right to exist.
Marrickville Council you have got it all wrong – you have sided with the aggressors, the bullies, the friends of Hitler and those whom Hitler considered his friends in their antisemitism.
It is a nonsense to say that this move represents the community, who may have voted Green just to preserve the environment and stop pollution in an inner city suburb.
Let us hope people of many ethnic backgrounds from all over Sydney protest this and show that it does not represent the way they think – it is the reflection of a prejudiced group of tunnel visioned ideologues."And Vic Alhadeff of the Jewish Board of Deputies in New South Wales aptly describes the boycott as ''an exercise in rank hypocrisy that has everything to do with local politics and nothing to do with the realities of the Middle East''.
I do hope that the Marrickville Council and BDS-ers everywhere will prove that they are not in the least hypocritical by sweeping from their lives all traces of the items in the above picture, all made in the plucky little country that in their greenery, stupidity, hatred and malice they are hell-bent on bringing to its knees.
