It is about time that Israel has a taste of what the REAL folks of this world think of its behaviour. After all, Israel lives inside an "American Protection and Arm Twisting Bubble" that allows Israel to look at itself with a warped view of reality. Today Spain boots out Israeli Scientists from a competition because they are illegal Zionist settlers on Palestinian land. And by doing so, they get a small taste of what the world REALLY thinks of the Rogue, War Criminal, Nuclear Armed, Zionist, Religious, racist, state of Israel. THANK YOU SPAIN Report below:
Spain has expelled a group of Israeli scientists from a state-funded solar energy competition because they are based in occupied areas of the West Bank, it said today.Good!! I hope someone took a photograph of their faces when they were told!)
The decision to expel the team from the Ariel University Centre of Samaria from Solar Decathlon Europe, an international competition involving 20 universities, has provoked angry reactions in Israel.
The team was one of 20 finalists in a competition to design solar-powered housing that is part-sponsored by the US energy department.Tell it like it is!!
Spain is hosting the first European version of the event next year and claims ultimate say over who takes part.
"All the ministry has done is apply the policy of the European Union," a housing ministry spokesman said. "The EU does not recognise the occupation of the West Bank, which is where this university is."
It was only after the Israeli project joined the finalists, which include the University of Nottingham, that officials at Spain's housing ministry became aware that the university was in the West Bank. The Israelis and the US energy department were advised of the decision a week ago.Here we go again, they need a new record, this one has been so overplayed people pay it no attention now.
The Israeli team had described their "Stretch house" project as being inspired by the "Tent of Abraham". "It is adaptable according to its owner's wishes and is able to expand and create hospitable spaces," they said. "In its closed state, when additional space is not required, it uses only half the energy necessary to operate a regular house."
Pro-Palestinian groups claimed allowing the Israeli team to take part was a breach of international law. They said the university was in the second biggest zone in Israel's expanding West Bank presence.
"I wonder how the Solar Decathlon can accept a project submitted by an institution that has stolen our land and will build its project on our stolen land," said Fayeq Kishawi, coordinator of a Palestinian campaign group against the settlements, in a letter to the Spanish housing minister, Beatriz Corredor.
Jewish groups have recently claimed anti-semitism is on the rise in Spain.
A report this week by the New York-based Anti-Defamation League complained of what it claimed was a rise in anti-Semitism across Spain and street protests where Israel is accused of genocide and Jews are vilified and compared to Nazis." sourceWell, if the "Swastika Fits" ....and in the case of Israel's actions, it fits perfectly!
