General Antisemitism

In new email exchange, Jim Bollan claims to have read Hamas charter; finds nothing objectionable about anti-Semitic sections

H/T to CiF Watch supporters out there who are forwarding their exchanges with West Dunbarton Councillor Jim Bollan regarding his council’s boycott of Israel.  

The following was forwarded by a CiF Watch supporter and UK resident named Simon Hochhauser, who only asked that we airbrush out his email address from the exchange.










Below, Bollan seems to be a bit confused about whether the Elders of the Protocols of Zion was being referenced or the Hamas Charter.  

However, Bollan claims not only that he hasn’t read The Protocols of the Elders of Zion but, interestingly, also suggests that he lacks even a rudimentary understanding of the notorious anti-Semitic forgery necessary to condemn it.


Simon then clarifies his question:

Here, Bollan provides the answer Simon was asking, as he claims to have read the Hamas charter and yet, evidently, finds nothing especially objectionable about it:


Thanks to the persistence of Jim Bollan’s interlocutor, Mr. Hochhauser,  Bollan’s views are quite clear.

He considers Hamas to be “freedom fighters”, stands by everything he’s said about the terrorist group, and, despite having claimed to have read the group’s founding charter, which contains explicitly genocidal anti-Semitism, does not register a moral objection to it.

It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

  1. Hochhauser did a truly splendid job at every point. Notable, in addition to how simply wrong and morally objectionable Bollan is, is how very unimpressive he is. He flounders in evasion like any hypocritical politician who tries not to reveal his true self or to acknowledge the glaring implications of his position. You can almost see the mental wall erected to avoid the cognitive dissonance. It’s curious even that he accepts such an exchange under the circumstances. Why do it? A commitment to honest intellectual exchange? That’s not apparent in the exchange itself. Rather than a strong proponent of his views, he seems a limited, beleaguered man hunkering down in senseless adamancy.

    • The deployment of the “they were elected” argument never ceases to amaze me.

      “If dumbarton council started exterminating jews in their borough would that be OK because they were ‘elected’?”

      “if wasn’t in their manifesto they wouldn’t be doing that…”

      “ah! so if it WAS in their manifesto that would be alright, then?”

      “well, if that’s what the people voted for…”

      “So why aren’t the people held responsible?”

      “because it was the outcome of the same democratic process the americans and europeans want us to adopt. haven’t you heard of the arab spring?”

    • Why do it?

      Arrogance and hatred.

      A puffed up belief in his own importance in this speck of a town that has only become known because of its disgusting council. No wonder it is one of the most depressed areas in Britain..

  2. He backs the genocidal Hamas Bollan should be prosecuted under the “Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide 1948”.

  3. A councillor called Bollan when grilled,
    Said the Hamas charter should be fulfilled.
    ‘You racist fanatic,
    It’s all democratic,
    People voted for Jews to be killed!’

    ‘There’s no genocide in Hamas!
    I’ve read their charter, don’t be so crass!
    It’s just one more try-on
    From the Elders of Zion –
    How do you want it? Bomb, bullet, or gas?’

  4. Arrest Jim Bollan for sedition, treason … and send him to some godforsaken spot on this earth. In chains.

  5. Jim Bollan is another false hero – the personification of Scottish true grit, who in the name of democracy and freedom, rises up as the vanguard against the iniquities of Zionism.

    He has shown us what it means to be the standard bearer of progress and decency in Dunbarton, where encouraging the authors of a genocidal anti-Semitic political program elsewhere in the world runs parallel with his council’s own modest contribution of banning Israeli books.

    And as long as a future war of extermination against the Jews comes wrapped in white and green, rather than red, white and black then brave little Jimmy can cheer along from the side-lines knowing his anti-racist and socialist credentials remain firmly intact.

    But I wonder whether this enthusiasm as a supporter of Middle Eastern ‘democracy’ would take on a different perspective if he was caught in the cross-hairs of a political program that called for his own demise? Then perhaps there would at least be a dialogue among equals, where both Jimmy and the Jews could dismiss each other’s right to exist as an exercise in ‘people power’.

  6. I wonder if the councillor is aware that his support may not be reciprocated?

    Two quotes from prominent Palestinians might give him food for thought:

    July 8 2005 (the day after the London terrorist attack)
    Suliman Sataria (Imam)

    “Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists. Your {God’s} enemies of the religion. God count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one”

    24th August 2001 (just over two weeks before 9/11)
    PA Radio broadcast by Dr Ikrime Sabri (the Mufti)

    “Oh Allah destroy America
    Oh Allah destroy Britain and its supporters and collaborators”

    And let’s not forget Yunis al-Astal’s rather famous speech in which he declares the goal of “…military conquests of the capitals of the entire world……”

    • “I wonder if the councillor is aware that his support may not be reciprocated?”

      Too damn right it is .. 4.000.000 pro Palestinians in Ireland alone !!

      Plenty of racists on this thread i see !!

      Israel was involved in 911 “Why do you think the truth movements are accused of Anti Semitism?? “Guilt conscience .. Ask the Israeli’s what their agents were doing “Documenting the event” on 911 and why on that very morning Israeli’s were stopped on the George Washington bridge with a Truck bomb ??” Ask them !! These are facts so their is nothing anti semitic by telling the truth !!

  7. Bollan is obviously retarded. It would be lucky if all in PSC, BDS etc are so retarded. Unfortunately (if that is the right word), they aren’t.

    • Whats this ? Anyone who criticises the Terrorist Zionist vermin state of Israel is a Anti Semite ??

  8. Hahaha…the only thing clear in all this are the words you put in Bollan’s mouth in between the emails. Bollan does not say the Hamas charter is unobjectionable. And over and over again he insists that his views are not what matter but that the Palestinians voted for Hamas. You guys are worse than Syria’s Public relations propaganda machine.

  9. Sad to say, Joe’s right about Bollan. But consciously or otherwise, it’s Joe who aligns himself with Syria’s propaganda machine, and what he writes makes Bollan’s views no less reprehensible.
    What Joe puts his finger on is Bollan’s reliance on “the will of the people”, an argument which is that any set of values or political system is fine, provided that it has received a people’s mandate. Hitler’s People’s Courts and any number of “People’s Republics…” of various degrees of nastyness have benefited from that cop-out. It is one political outcome of parties coming to power whose name contains the word “Socialist”, like Bollan’s. It is an argument repeatedly used by their fellow travellers. Greater minds than Bollan’s have refused to see what was in front of them but which was plain for others to see.
    Hochhauser’s admirable persistence does uncover one thing about Bollan, though. Bollan’s steadfast (what makes me think of George Galloway, I wonder?) ignoring of the moral dimension of what he writes reveals values made subservient to the political imperative – an essential tool for tyrants through the ages. It reveals a defect in his moral compass. That raises a question to which Bollan’s fellow councillors may not so far have been exposed – whether they really want to be associated with anyone of Bollan’s mindset through their policies or otherwise. And, if they do, what does it say about them and their respective political parties.

  10. A quick exposure of double standards and utter bigotry !!

    Israeli Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, Inferring that killing isn’t murder if the victim is Gentile. Jerusalem Post, June 19,1989: “Jewish blood and a goy’s [gentile’s] blood are not the same.”

    “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.” – Israeli prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parliament] quoted by Amnon Kapeliouk, “Begin and the Beasts,” New Statesman, June 25, 1982

    “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” — Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, Feb. 27, 1994 [Source: N.Y. Times, Feb. 28, 1994, p. 1]

    “We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.” (You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels, p. 155).

    You talk about racism and Anti semitism but you won’t acknowledge the racist, Anti semitic (Palestinians are Semitic) quotes of those Rabid Zionists who have brought nothing but shame to Judea

    Rabid Islamofascists are at war with Bahais, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Sikhs, Zoroastrians AND fellow Muslims.

    BTW owainglyndwr16, you dumb sack of SHITler, in case you haven’t noticed, the Israelis are NOT the unarmed Jews of WW2 nazi vermin infested Europe.

    • Pan Am ?? Don’t know…
      Poison Gas ?? Saddam with US Weapons of Mass destruction…
      Iran Iraq War ?? Iraq and they Gassed Iranians with US supplied Gas…
      7/7 london Bombings ?? That has all the hallmarks of a Zionist inside job..

  12. owainglyndwr16,

    “7/7 london Bombings ?? That has all the hallmarks of a Zionist inside job..”

    Really? Where is your evidence support your claim?

    7/7/05 was a British Muslim INSIDE JOB

    And how ’bout those farewell videos by the islamofascist swine?

    Here is proof that British islamofascists (ISLAM4UK) celebrated and admitted Islamofascist responsibility for the 9/11 sneak attack.

    Remember british policewoman Yvonne Ridley, murdered by a shot from the Libyan embassy – the same country responsible for the bombing of Pan Am 103?

    Who cursed and spit on returning British troops parading Luton???

    Who demand more and more after-tax money from the entire world when one buys overpriced gasoline and other oil products? Does OPEC ring a bell???

    Who kidnaps and then video tapes the beheading of captives while masked men shreik “allah akbar”???

    Whenever filth like you are up against reality, you bleat “inside job!!!”.

    Happy NAKBA!!!

    • We say Inside job … You say “Anti-Semite .. I think we are now playing on a level playing field now don’t you ?? We say inside job because the idiots who were dancing and giving each other high 5’s on the morning of 911 somehow gave themselves away .. “We were sent to “DOCUMENT” the event they said on Israeli TV after their release !!

      I would like for you to say to one of the survivors of the USS Liberty attack TO HIS FACE that Israel did not deliberately attack their ship in international waters during the 6 day War

      The ADL and JDL have infiltrated the EDL which for want of a better description is your straight arm skin headed fascist that ignorantly swear allegiance to Hitler .. I thought i would never see the day that Jewish extremists would join forces with Neo Nazi groups and even Loyalist terrorist groups from Northern Ireland to spread anti Islamic hate speech Well i must admit ,,you know how to pick em !! A Zionist Jew will do anything as long it is for the benefit of Israel .. That to me isTreason !!

    • Don’t you mean Yvonne Fletcher Fletcher ?? I bet your so ignorant or you have decided your better than me to ever lower yourself to watch any video i post .. Shame really as it would be refreshing to converse with someone who is NOT inflexible to an open honest debate ..

      Pearl and Berg be-headings ?? You really ought to research those ,,trust me you’ll be as pissed as i was when i discovered the lies we are being fed ..

  13. owainglyndwr16,

    Don’t forget Islam4UK – Muslims who admit Muslims perpetrated 9/11 and celebrate the sneak attack of 9/11.

    So much for your 1001 theories.

    owainglyndwr16, if you were on fire, I wouldn’t piss on you – I would let the fire have its way with you.
