Bollan suggests moral equivalence between Israel’s war in Gaza and Nazi Holocaust against Jews


In an exchange with Scottish Friends of Israel, who raised the issue of West Bartonshire’s boycott against Israeli goods in the context of the odious history of such boycotts directed at the Jewish community, Bollan responded thusly:

So, we can now add to Bollan’s defense of Hamas as “freedom fighters”, his refusal to condemn even the most anti-Semitic articles of the groups’ founding charter, and his sympathy towards the terrorists who massacred five innocent Israeli civilians, his apparent belief that Israel’s Operation Cast Lead – a war initiated in response to Hamas’s launching of thousands of rockets into Israeli civilian territories – can be considered to be in the same moral universe as the Nazi’s attempted genocide of the Jews.

Sickening? Despicable? I really can’t think of a word that could possibly do justice to such a hideous moral comparison.

  1. You gotta hand it to him- he really manages to cram every possible cliché into his emails.

  2. “Sickening? Despicable? I really can’t think of a word that could possibly do justice to such a hideous moral comparison.”

    Evil.

  3. ‘The murder of innocent Palestinians like the 1,300 killed by the IDF in 2009…’

    Even Hamas has stated that the majority of those killed in Operation Cast Lead were, in fact, Hamas terrorists. So, in the latest chapter of Bollan’s desperation, he is telling lies that even Hamas would dispute!

    ‘Sickening? Despicable? I really can’t think of a word that could possibly do justice to such a hideous moral comparison.’

    Both of those, also desperate attention seeking from a village idiot who keenness to comment on the issue far outweighs his understanding. As I’ve said before, thank goodness his actual role and influence is so impotent.

    • “Both of those, also desperate attention seeking from a village idiot who keenness to comment on the issue far outweighs his understanding.”

      With respect (sincerely meant here, and not a throat-clearing exercise), I think this comes awfully close to Hannah Arendt’s banality of evil argument. I do not believe that Bollan is an ordinary chap who has somehow been duped by a particular ideology. I am of the opinion that he is an evil man who believes evil things.

      “As I’ve said before, thank goodness his actual role and influence is so impotent.”

      In terms of his role, I naturally agree. I’m not so sure about his influence. It could just be that it is his snowball that starts the avalanche.

      • I pray to God Jim remains un-repentant … I don’t know for the life of me how you can support Terrorists who were sent from Hell who lie, steal and murder and bitch about a Holocaust that allegedly happened 60 odd years ago .. If the Holocaust happened ,,”Where did it happen ?” Why are Palestinians paying for an event that happened long ago ? Some say (Zionist vermin) that the state of Israel was created because of the Holocaust !! That is not true as you only have to read the Balfour declaration or the Transfer agreement so don’t give me any Bull about how it was created … There are Jews who refuse to recognize the Terrorist state of Israel “Are they evil too?”

        • owainglyndwr16,

          Jealousy, failure and defeat are in your genes. Hence it is no wonder that you are overwhelmed by you inate inferiority complex.

          Remember, the Israelis are NOT the unarmed Jews of WW2 nazi owainglyndwr16 filth infested Europe.

          May you join your klan in Hell soon. INSHALLAH!.

          • Remember, the Israelis are NOT the unarmed Jews of WW2

            That might be the case but they are still the lying conniving vermin they have always been !!

            I don’t know how you can call the AshkeNAZI Jews “Jews” .. Dirty Bolsheviks responsible for Millions of deaths !! Screw the Khazars !! Those shower of genocidal freaks aren’t even Semitic !!

                • owainglyndwr16,

                  Do you still dream that you should have been your furhers first bride instead of that tramp eva braun?

                  Happy NAKBA and Happy UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER too!

                  • “Do you still dream that you should have been your furhers first bride instead of that tramp eva braun?”

                    If i was a woman; knowing what I’ve learned over the past 20 years or so i probably would be dreaming that !!

                    What a presumptuous dumb ass .. You thought i was a broad !!

  4. I do not believe that Bollan is an ordinary chap who has somehow been duped by a particular ideology”

    Neither do I. He crams way too many bigoted remarks into small spaces to justify the word ‘dupe’ and he’s dismissive of all and any attempts to consider an alternative explanation. He appears inflexible – which is bad news for his electorate.

    That he knows very little about the issues is probably true. He seems the type who has selected his team and, like any faithful supporter, is not remotely interested in any other.
    Lacking interest inevitably results in lacking knowledge. Which is why I’ve maintained that the vote this council took in January 2009 was – and still is – unsafe.

    It is clear that the vote was taken with little or no background knowledge save that found in the media – it cannot be otherwise since no official inquiry had been held. Now here’s the hypocrasy: of all the people who should know that the media can be biased, distorted and unreliable, politiicans have to be up there with media celebrities. They know that the media can make or break political parties. They know that even at a local level their opposition can, at election time and in between, spin issues around like Olympic discus throwers. They know that mud-slinging occurs and that reputations can be unfairly tarnished. Like many celebrities, politicians know the meaning of the phrase “Don’t believe all you read in the Press”. Yet when it came to Israel that media had transformed itself into the oracle of all knowledge and wisdom. Utterly astounding, isn’t it?

    I doubt that the councillor really cares about the ordinary, everyday Palestinian anyway. It seems to me that the appeal is Hamas itself.

    • The Brits hate everyone and everything they even hate themselves,you must have heard about the whinging and whining Poms.

      How do you know,when a planeload of Poms arrived at Sydney airport????The whining doesn’t stop when the engines are cut……

      It’s just that they hate Jews more than anyone else,they just hate anyone who is way better than them………
