I had a discussion with an associate who, whilst being a reasonably intelligent guy, follows them ardently and is brainwashed to their cult group think. I seen his head almost explode though when bringing this one up on him:
He was banging on about Israel and I questioned him as to why he hated them so much.
Him: “Israel is a foreign invader and have no right to be there, it’s not their home land”.
Me: “So if a group of people aren’t indigenous, they shouldn’t have the right to set up home somewhere else?”
Him: “no, it’s shocking, they way they persecute the Palestinians who are the true people of the land is shocking too”.
Me: “you do realise that Celtic and their fans are the Israel of Scotland?”
Him: “what absolute rubbish”.
Me: “Well the Celtic fans with their hatred for the country they now reside in and alleigance to Ireland makes them the non-indigenous people, say, invaders. They have no wish to assimilate with the local people or their customs, they openly discuss the ultimate goal of wiping out the indigenous population and support violence against them. In what was does that make them different to what your perceived hatred of Israel is based on?”.
Him: “The Irish had to come over because of the potatoe famine. They had no choice”.
Me: “So the extermination of millions of Jews in the world’s worst case of ethnic cleansing isn’t justification for finding somewhere new to live?”
Celtic - The Israel of Scotland.
