Carelessness = Zionist Racism

The debate over the Palestinian Human Rights motion at the general meeting of the students union in Salford University on Friday, April 26, 2002 was canceled because there were only 129 students in attendance and the motion needs at least 150 student union members.

I was there; and I saw how the organizers were shocked. They arranged everything, they called the students especially MUSLIMS to attend the motion, they announced that many times, the last announcement was after Friday prayer in the University mosque where about 200 Muslims were present (MOST OF THEM LIBYANS). BUT it was very sad to know that just few Libyan students attended the unsuccessful meeting of the student union in Salford University.

I WONDER WHY?! WHY DO THEY PRAY? WHY DO THEY DONATE MONEY FOR PALESTENIANS? WHY DO THEY THINK THAT TO BE A MUSLIM IS ONLY TO WORSHIP ALLAH AND NOT TO SUPPORT OTHER MUSLIMS (THE PALESTINIANS) BY TRYING THEIR BEST TO STOP OTHER GOVERNMTNTS' (THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT) SOPPURT OF ISRAEL? (At least we could show them that we are not agreeing with their policy.)
WHY DONíT THEY BYCOTT ISRAELI AND AMERICAN GOODS?

The Students Union resolves were:
1- To allow students, through democratic referendum, to decide whether or not the Students Union should promote the boycott of companies whose profits are being used to prop up the Israeli apartheid regime and whose products are manufactured on illegal settlements.
2- To join the national BIG campaign (Boycott Israeli Goods) and boycott organizations and companies who facilitate and encourage human rights violations. This campaign was launched in the British Parliament by George Galloway. Businesses include: Selfridges and Marks and Spencer, Harrods.

Some English students attended the meeting, they showed their support for the Palestinians. One of them went to West Bank and described how the situation is worse there.

THIS MOTION WAS CANCELED AND IT WILL NOT BE REPEATED UNTIL NEXT SEMISTER because (WE ARE CARELESS)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Please note that Israeli products carry the unique bar code starting with 729). For more information visit (www.boycottisraeligoods.org).
