The boycott movement in trade unions is the result of a systematic program of subversion, in which organizations created for a wholly different purpose were turned into platforms for spreading anti-Israel propaganda.
It was not spontaneous or accidental. It took a long time and a lot of work. The natural bent of the British working man is not necessarily to support the Islamic Jihad and the Hamas after all.
What happened to trade union officials who fought for pensions, vacations with pay - take your kids to the seashore sort of thing?
Talking Union Boycott Blues
If you wanna stick it to the Jews, let me tell you what to do;
You got to talk to the workers in the shop with you;
You got to build you a union, got to make it strong,
But if you all stick together, now, 'twont he long.
You'll get dead Jews
Mullahs as shopwardens,.
Vacations in Tehran,
Take your wives to the seashore

STUC to ask Celtic fans to show Palestinian flags in solidarity with suffering Palestinians on December 2nd
Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) Deputy General Secretary Dave Moxham said: "This December marks the one year anniversary of the Israeli invasion of Gaza in which 1400 men, women and children were killed in an act described by the United Nations as 'indicating serious violations of international human rights' and 'amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity.'
"Israel also continues to flout international law through its illegal occupation, through increasing settlements and building its so-called security wall which separates Palestinians, family from family and community from community."
"When the Israel team Hapoel Tal Aviv visit Celtic Park on Wednesday night, millions around the world will be watching including those living in Israel and Palestine.
"I am today writing to Celtic FC and Hapoel Tel Aviv FC outlining the reasons and purpose of this call and making clear that we attach no blame either to Hapoel Tel Aviv players, nor their fans, for the outrageous actions of their government.
"We hope that Celtic fans will join with us in a demonstration of support for a just and lasting peace in Israel/Palestine based on a safe and secure Palestinian homeland living side by side with Israel."
