Original Screening of “With God on Our Side” to MSPs Cancelled in Holyrood

Stanley Grossman writes in:

You may recall that I recently raised awareness of the intentions of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish activists to employ use of the film “With God on Our Side” at various venues, including the Cross-Party Group on Palestine meeting scheduled for next Wednesday ( Nov 10). The good news is that, after I asked one of my local MSPs to raise the matter within the Scottish Parliament, he reports that the meeting has been cancelled.

My MSP has written:

Stan,
I have been working on this matter and have spoken to a number of the members of the CPG. I have this afternoon heard that the CPG meeting has been cancelled.
Hope this has been of some help.
Regards,

This small victory will, of course, not put our haters off but it does show that if we act timeously and with conviction, particularly when we can show that certain events could reflect badly on reputations, then those sensible representatives in authority will support us.

Porter Speakman adds:

Just for clarification – It has been postponed, not cancelled due to a parliamentary session that will run into the afternoon therefore the cross party meeting can’t take place. The meeting is being rescheduled.

Grossman responds:

The showing of the anti-Jewish film may be postponed, but the meeting, strangely after a MSP intervened, was cancelled.

      Hi Porter,

      It was lovely to meet you too and I hope you enjoy a nice break today. Cheers, I’ll add what you said to the bottom of the post.

      All the best

      Joseph

  2. seismicshock,

    Did Porter Speakman Jr address all of your concerns?

    In one of your previous posts you stated:

    “Such is my hope for Christians who decide to work alongside Rev Sizer despite his having forwarded emailsfrom, given interviews to, approvingly cited and spoken alongside assorted Holocaust deniers and Far Right activists.

    I have yet to see Mr. Speakman attempt to engage with these points.

      Not yet unfortunately, Mod.

    • I didn’t expect it would be.

      For Mr. Speakman to do that, he’d have to actually engage with what you are saying, not mouth platitudes as he currently seems to do.

      Mr. Speakman would have to ask why so much racism seems to follow these manifestations of “anti-Zionism” around.

      I suspect Mr. Speakman really isn’t up to asking *himself* those difficult questions.
