Australian City Faces Attacks for Supporting BDS

This is great. Thanks Cockney Doll. From the look of the website, its very pro-Islam and anti Israel etc. But you wouldn’t know it from reading this article. It appears to be an unwitting admission of how much Israel produces. Meanwhile, a BDS of the Muslim world would be unnoticed if it wasn’t for gasoline, which is a western product anyway. They just happen to live on top of the oil.

By Tania Kepler – The city of Marrickville is the first municipality in Australia to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. The city is now under attack, following the publication of a report saying that support for BDS could end up costing taxpayers $4 million.

In December 2010 the local council in the Australian city of Marrickville became the first municipality in Australia to support the Palestinian initiated Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, and “boycott all goods made in Israel and any sporting, institutional academic, government or institutional cultural exchanges.”

The city is now under attack, following the publication of a report saying that support for BDS could end up costing taxpayers $4 million. Marrickville Mayor Fiona Byrne has denied that would be the case.

The paper was written by the council’s manager of services, Gary Moore, who says that signing onto BDS will require the replacement of the municipality’s Hewlett Packard computers, Holden and Volvo cars, telephones and other equipment from Motorola and concrete from Fulton Hogan.

Mr. Moore’s report found the boycott measure would lead to “substantial” impacts on council’s operations. “Significant change would have to be planned for and managed to enable council operations to be maintained whilst new sets of providers of computer hardware, concrete, waste services, some vehicles and some other construction materials and consumables are obtained and existing contracts are completed/suspended,” the report said.

According to Moore’s report for the council, it would cost about $3 million to replace Hewlett Packard computer systems, $300,000 for new record-keeping software and $150,000 for new Motorola products.

  1. It is very telling that these Socialist pigs condemn the only country in the Middle East where there is a truly free society under attack on every side of its borders. But knowingly fund those oppressive regimes which wage jihad against them as well as rape and kill non-muslim women and children merely because they’re non-muslim. Useless idiots, every one of them.

  2. Who are these BDS supporters? Are they Jews? Christians? Moslems? Atheists? Where did their parents/grandparents come from? They certainly don’t look like native Australian Aborigines! So they must be settlers. In that case they should be BDSing themselves for the wrongs their ancestors may have been involved in against the Aborigines…not the least of which was massive land usurption — and in some cases, actual physical annihilation of large numbers of them. sIn fact these are exactly the same things the non-native so-called ‘palestinians’ did to the Jews in Israel-Judea, their 4000 year old homeland. So, BDSers, what would have been your reaction had Israelis set up a similar BDS group against Australian produce?

  3. One word describes them: dhimmis.

    They should protest in some Muslim country to see what the score actually is over there. Better yet, ask them to wear crucifixes or yarmulkes in public and see what reception they will get.

    It is an accident of geography that most of the Muslim countries on the planet are sitting on vast oil and gas reserves.

    It is the spinelessness of the west that keeps the jihad funds rolling in and appeasement efforts with Islam on-going.
