Anne Herzberg forwarded me this
unbelievable eminently believable story out of Scotland -- a move by local politicians to actually ban Israeli books from libraries:
A SCOTTISH council has sparked outrage after banning books as part of a politically-motivated boycott on goods from Israel which critics have described as "a grossly insensitive insult".
SNP-led West Dunbartonshire Council has ordered that its libraries ban any new volumes by Israeli authors, printed or published in the Jewish state.
It follows an earlier decision by the local authority to boycott Israeli goods and produce as part of a pro-Palestinian display.
European antisemitism -- and please, no letters protesting that this is "anti-Zionism" or "anti-Israelism" -- is a not terribly surprising phenomenon. What is disturbing is the increased velocity of European antisemitism.
