Scouting Association Expels Volunteer for Advocacy Against Zionist Support | A Call to Chief Scout Bear Grylls | Resistance TV
In this thought-provoking episode of Resistance TV, we delve into the story of Pete Gregson, a dedicated volunteer with the 150th Craigalmond Scout Group, who was shockingly expelled by the Scout Association for his affiliation with the Campaign Against Bogus Antisemitism (CABA). We address the contentious issue of the Scouts' adherence to the IHRA Definition of Antisemitism, which has equated criticism of Israel to antisemitism.
Join us as we examine the case from multiple perspectives, including Pete's own Chief Scout's award from Bear Grylls, who leads the Scouting Association. We explore the call to Bear Grylls, urging him to intervene and reconsider the decision to expel volunteers who campaign against Zionist support for Israel.
Throughout the episode, we shed light on Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of Neturei Karta's support for Pete, emphasizing that his advocacy is in no way anti-Jewish. We analyze the impact of Zionist complaints leading to Pete's suspension and subsequent expulsion, despite his ten years of selfless service and his prior avoidance of political discussions.
This episode aims to ignite a dialogue about the intersection of activism, freedom of speech, and the Scout Association's policies. Join us in questioning whether the Scouts should reconsider their approach and ensure that volunteers are not unjustly targeted for expressing their viewpoints.
