Israeli President, Shimon Peres: “Those who boycott, boycott only themselves”. But they’ll do it anyways because they hate the Jewish state more than they love common sense.
ANSAmed– PARIS, MARCH 13 – A Paris Book Fair “taken hostage”, Le Monde says, still before its opening today by Israeli President Shimon Peres and by French Minister of Culture, Christine Albanel. “Hostage” of Arab countries, writers and publishers in Arabic language, as well as of Israeli writers, who incited the “boycott” of the event, because Israel is “guest of honour”. Arab writers and publishers, as well as the Arab countries Algeria, Iran, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Yemen lined up for the boycott.
Rest assured that pseudo scholars like Illan Pappé are involved with the boycott, and a host of other Israel haters and like ilk. It’s a fetish with these hateful types, having nothing to do with common sense and rational thought, it’s grounded in pure emotional bigotry. *L* KGS
