Scottish BDS advocate Jim Bollan’s take on the terrorists responsible for Fogel family massacre

Amjad Awad, one of the two suspects from the West Bank village of Awarta who acknowledged breaking into the Fogel family residence in Itamar, back in March, and stabbing to death the parents, Udi and Ruth, and three of their children (4-year-old Elad, 11-year-old Yoav and three-month-old baby Hadas) said the following to reporters in court, recently, per The Jerusalem Post:

“I don’t regret what I did, and would do it again,” Amjad Awad told reporters in court. “I’m proud of what I did and I’ll accept any punishment I get, even death, because I did it all for Palestine,”

Chilling doesn’t begin to describe the hate which would allow someone to lack even the most elementary sense of remorse for murdering children while they sleep.

Yet, there will always be extreme Israel haters who manage to contextualize such crimes and, if not outright justifying them, find a way to ask, as Ben White did about the rise of anti-Semitism, if such homicidal Jew hatred could at least be “understandable”.

Here’s the response by Jim Bollan, West Dunbartonshire Council member and fierce proponent of his council’s boycott of all Israeli goods, to an anti-boycott activist who forwarded him the Jerusalem Post story cited above:

Jim Bollan is truly the quintessential Israel hater – never able to summon genuine and unqualified moral outrage at the death of innocent Jewish civilians (even infants) without asserting a moral equivalence, and suggesting that there must be a good reason why such terrorists committed the horrific crimes they did.

The Hamas-loving Bollan is simply a poster child for the mendacity of the BDS movement.

  1. I would like to know the reaction of the Israeli “human right activists” who went to Awarta to show solidarity with the parents of this monster.
    Somehow I doubt that they will apologise…

    • Peter, yes, that photo of that “humanitarian” hugging the mother of a brutal murderer will be forever emblazoned in my mine. Truly sickening

  2. I doubt that Jim Bollan is capable of “understanding” what drives animals to such barbarism. He may SAY he does, but he really hasn’t the smarts or the knowledge of Islam or what it commands of the faithful in respect of kufar and particularly towards Jews.

    This is why he performs the expert “Bunglawala Manoeuvre” – he “condemns violence” (and you get no sense that his heart is really in it) but excuses the Fogel massacre, by saying the equivalent of “they had it coming” or the animals who perpetrated it were driven to it.

    The man is beneath contempt.

    • ‘he “condemns violence” (and you get no sense that his heart is really in it) but excuses the Fogel massacre, by saying the equivalent of “they had it coming” ‘

      Since time immemorial Jews have been blamed by anti-Semites for the tragedies that have befallen them. Indeed, such accusations are one of the defining characteristics of those who hate Jews.

  3. Jim Bollan- As relevant as yesterday’s cheese. The guy belongs in a nut-house but I don’t think they have any in East Dumbeldore or wherever that is.

  4. Rollin’ Bollan is a real activist and bleeding heart. When I read what he writes my eyes just fill with tears at his broad humanity and love for others.

  5. As you look briefly into history you see one this Bollan has overlooked: Every chain of violence is started by palestines!

    If the palestines are ready for peace, they only have to stop committing acts of violence. Israël never started any, so the ones responsible for all the violence are the palestines themselves.

    The IDF has to defend Israel, that is their duty. Hamas uses civilians as human shields, because they are cowards and don’t dare to fight like men. Sorry, but than sometimes civilians will get killed. But you can’t in any way blame the IDF, but in every way the cowards that hide behind women and children.

    There was a time when men used to protect women and children. For hamas they are worthless pieces of shit, who can be sacrificied to save cowards hiding behind them and fighting with their face hidden …

  6. Jim Bollan is a pathetic irrelevance. Suggest you retrain your focus on more serious targets.
