UK: Scotland Greens support BDS, Hamas

Via Algemeiner (h/t Honestly Concerned):
Scotland’s Green Party passed a motion on Saturday calling for the boycott of Israel and the removal of Hamas from a European Union list of terrorist organizations.

The motion backs the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israeli businesses, academics and cultural institutions. In the policy statement, Zionism is referred to as a “racist ideology” advocating that “Jewish people have a superior right to the land of Palestine;” Israel is accused of “colonization and ethnic cleansing;” and the West Bank security barrier “constitutes a policy of apartheid.”

The motion claims that the founding of Israel was achieved “by military conquest” and “the ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians.” The left-wing party also confirmed it does not support Israel in its current form.

“Israel’s claim to be a Jewish and democratic state, the home of all Jews in which non-Jews have inferior rights, constitutes apartheid and is unacceptable,” the motion states.   more
