    Glasgow Flying Palestinian Flag Prompts Row

News Desk: Glasgow’s council has provoked controversy by flying the flag of the Palestinian people from the City Hall.The council said it had decided to fly the flag – a green, white and black tricolour with a red triangle at one end – as a mark of support for those affected by the violence in Gaza.The banner was erected on one of the flag poles outside Glasgow City Hall on Friday morning.It came about after the mayor of Bethlehem, which in twinned with Glasgow, wrote to the city’s Lord Provost, asking Glasgow to show solidarity.

Although Bethlehem is in the West Bank, the city council said it felt it was necessary to fly the flag to support all the people in the Palestinian Territories.

It has prompted outrage from Jewish groups, who say it will not achieve anything.

Jewish Representative Council president Paul Morron told Sky News: “Flying the Palestinian flag achieves nothing.
