Racist UEFA Threaten  Punishment
for Flying ‘illicit banner’

It was a wonderful display of solidarity by Celtic fans last
night when hundreds of Palestinian flags were flown by fans in defiance of
warnings by the Police and Club management. 
They were displaying their anger that Celtic was playing the racist Hapoel
Beer Sheva side from Israel.  Beer Sheva
is in Israel’s Negev Desert where Bedouin villages are at this very moment
being demolished to make way for Israeli towns. 
Al Arakhib has been demolished over 100 times as it is an ‘unrecognised’
village.  Only Arab villages are ever unrecognised.

Support for the Palestinians by Zionists is seen as support for the Nazis – a classic form of self-projection – and then they tell us that it is ‘anti-Semitic’ to associate their crimes with the Nazis!

Celtic is a club where a large number of the followers are
Irish Catholics and Republicans.  Just as
the Loyalists in Northern Ireland identify with the Israelis, since Loyalism is
based on Protestant Supremacy, so Republicans identify with the oppressed Palestinians.

The so-called Jewish Human Rights Watch (many Zionist groups
use the term ‘watch’ i.e. SPY in their name), superimposed Swastikas on the
photos and claimed that this is really what was intended for the ‘Jewish
players; in the team and what they saw. 
Of course JHRW has nothing to do with human rights, other than that they
oppose them for anyone who isn’t Jewish.
This is the racist projection of Jewish neo-Nazis or, as the
distinguished Israeli Jewish philosopher , chemist and religious scholar, Yeshayahu Leibowitz,
called them Judeo-Nazis.  Just as Hitler demonised
the Jews and consigned them to concentration camps, so the Jewish neo-Nazis of
JHRW and similar groups wish to see the elimination of the Palestinians,
physically and politically.  They thus
characterise them as the equivalent of the 
Nazis, thus providing a justification for whatever calamity befalls

Notice how the JHRW tweet states that ‘this is what you meant to say’ – which is aa
form of self-projection.  Most Zionists
see any form of Palestinian identity as a swastika.  Palestinians are not merely the reincarnation
of the Nazis but they are seen by many Zionists, not least Prime Minister Netanyahu
as the reincarnation of the Nazis.  [see
Rewriting the Holocaust
Note also how a protest against an Israeli team is portrayed
as an attack on a Jewish team.  Israelis
are assumed to be  Jewish  since Palestinian Israelis are confined to the
margins of the self-declared Jewish State. 
Israel’s football association tolerates a situation where clubs like Jerusalem’s
Beitar have an explicit policy of not employing Arab Israeli players.  Again in another example of self-projection,
racist Zionists have convinced themselves that everyone else divides the world
up into races – them and us.
Enjoy the Zionists discomfiture at the expression of Palestinian
identity – because one of the  key
aspects of settler colonialism is the attempt to eradicate and destroy the
identity of those they colonise.
