Must not criticize Israel's critics

Muslims get in a huff if you do

Security fears today forced Boris Johnson to cancel a planned visit to Palestine after a joke about Israeli boycotts backfired.

Mr Johnson has spent three days in Israel, where he claims to be drumming up business interest in London.

But he landed himself in hot water after criticising the Israeli boycott. While his opposition is in line with British Government policy, his choice of words and approach is said to have prompted the backlash.

Speaking in Tel Aviv, Mr Johnson said a 'completely crazy' trade boycott against Israel lacks support and used a lecture to hit out at some 'corduroy, jacketed, snaggletoothed, lefty academics in the UK' who are pursuing the cause.

Today, shortly after he entered the Palestinian city of Ramallah, news emerged that his appearances at three scheduled events had been binned.

The office of Palestinian Authority prime minister Rami Hamdallah warned security would be 'perhaps at risk' if he went ahead with the visits in the West Bank. It was indicated protests were feared should he turn up.

Two of the groups due to host events insisted they refused to welcome Mr Johnson.

Muslims are liars and evil.

Islam allows it's devotees to view all outsiders as infidels who are essentially not human and can be treated as less than animals since there are limits on what the devout can do to animals. This structural weakness of the religion will eventually cause massive bloodshed.

"Structural weakness"? It seems to be the intent!

Pity he didn't go. He would have made a great poster boy for Palestinian violence.
