“An immediate sanction for the illegal attack on the flotilla, we call on the government to expel the Israeli ambassador”.
The anti-Zionist rhetoric in United Kingdom starts to sound like the messages sent out by the Ayatollah controlled Iran.
The emergency motion was introduced on the third day of the annual conference of UNISON, the largest public sector union with around 1.4 million members.
It said Israel was “brazenly lying” over the flotilla incident, as it “attempted to define it as an attempted lynch mob of its troops by passengers on the boats. This is a further sign that Israel does not respond to words of condemnation, only action will have any effect,” the motion states.
The union will now support a full boycott of Israel – economic, cultural and sporting; it has joined the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign and will suspend ties with the Israeli union Histadrut.
One attendee said that the few Unison members who spoke against the motion were heckled. Lilach Head, a care worker from Devon, spoke against the motion and was heckled. She said the atmosphere was intimidating and the vote was called before more people could speak against it.
“Only three people were able to speak against the motion, there were six others waiting but then the vote was called. There was no hope,” she said.
The Israeli embassy in London said the motion was “misleading” and “dishonest” and an “outrageous attempt” by anti-Israel activists to manipulate the union to serve their agenda.
“We categorically reject this misleading and dishonest motion. This is yet another outrageous attempt by anti-Israel elements to manipulate a union into serving their agenda”.

The First Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion was a committed Socialist. In the 1950-both the Labor party and British workers were close friends of the Zionist state, that was build up on the same values as the Social Democratic idea.
– Lets live in Kibutz, have everything in common, and share with everyone in need.
I guess this was what Jesus of Nazareth would have done, if He had come back to Israel in 1948?
What has happened to the socialists in Europe?
The Zionist idea of a Jewish homeland with Jerusalem as its capital is still the same as in 1955. Nothing has changed.
Than, why do the unions in the United Kingdom side with the Islamic forces, that wants to destroy this Jewish nations, that is built on the same values as they protect in their own party programs?
Why do the unions in the United Kingdom side with Islam, that do not respect any of these values?
What a mad , mad world north of the white rocks of Dover.
