This is really how it's done:
"Plans to bring 600 US visitors to Glasgow have been abandoned because of the city council’s decision to fly the Palestinian flag."
"The trip, which would have injected hundreds of thousands of pounds
into Glasgow, and the Scottish economy, was a reward to 600 salesmen and
women, and their spouses."
"The Vice-President of one of the
leading special event companies in the US has told the council that the
planned six-day trip is off. The company is one of the Fortune
group whose members are the top 500 worldwide corporations, including
WalMart, Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil, Volkswagen and Coca Cola."
after reading about Glasgow’s decision to fly the Palestinian flag over
the City Chambers to show solidarity with Gaza, the New York-based
vice-president of the company wrote to Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Sadie
Docherty, saying: “I was, until I read the article in the Scottish
Express, and substantiated by the press all over the world, spearheading
an event in Glasgow for 600 business visitors to be guests of your wonderful city."
“We were scheduling six days in Glasgow, three for business and three for leisure time."
“Having read your statement endorsing Hamas and its leadership due to
the number of Muslims in your city, I have decided to cancel all plans
for our trip. We are a Fortune 500 Company, so costs were really not a
serious consideration, location was."
“Hopefully, the Muslim
population that you so sincerely endorse will have the spending power of
the very people you have chased away so well.”
