People Before Profit want the right to flout anti-discrimination laws when it suits them.

They want Belfast City council to discriminate against Israeli Jews because of their nationality – even though legislation rightly prevents local authorities from discriminating against people because of their faith, nationality, gender or sexual orientation.
They would rightly decry a council resolution discriminating against anyone else on this planet on the grounds of their nationality or religion – except Israeli Jews.
Insert the words Chinese, Turks or Pakistanis in their resolution and not a single Councillor would support it.
But a right to discriminate against Israeli Jews is the cause of a protest by “anti racists” at Belfast city hall.
