THIS is why I'm a Celtic Supporter, they are always on the right side ;o) Palestine "You'll Never Walk Alone"
link CELTIC fans are being asked to wave Palestinian flags during a football match against Israeli team Hapoel Tel Aviv in protest at the invasion of Gaza last year. The controversial call by the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) came in advance of the Europa League match next Wednesday, which will be seen by millions of football fans.
The gesture is aimed to cause maximum embarrassment to the Israeli ambassador to the UK, Ron Prosor, who is travelling from London to attend the game.
Union bosses said the flag-waving move was designed to mark the anniversary of the invasion and the deaths of "1,400 men, women and children". More:
PLANS to stage an anti-Israel protest at Parkhead during Celtic's match against Hapoel Tel-Aviv sparked fury last night. The Scottish Trades Union Congress urged Hoops fans to wave Palestinian flags during the clubs' Europa League game on Wednesday.
They want supporters to show opposition to the Israeli invasion of Gaza a year ago in which 1,400 died.
And Dr Ken Collins, a former president of the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council, said: "Any attempt to use sport to divide people is completely wrong." (Excuse me? there is just that little matter of the Sports Stadium you Zionists halted in Palestine, it was to be finisihed in THREE weeks, sorry, your bullshit is showing again)
Former Lord Provost and Celtic fan Alex Mosson, 69, said he intends to wear a Palestinian flag at the match. He said: "I fully support this."
