The Irish left and Israel

In the conflict between the secular liberal democracy of Israel and its reactionary religious totalitarian enemies Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran, the western left, for some reason, has sided with the religious totalitarians.

The Irish left follows the rest of the western left in this bizarre prejudice, which seems to be based on western self-loathing rather than on logic and standing with people like us.

Hezbollah flag openly displayed at IPSC march, Dublin, Apr 2008. From here.
Attending this demo which contained open support for Islamist terror were David Norris, Michael D. Higgins, Eamonn McCann and Mary Lou McDonald (of SF-IRA).
Do they not notice this kind of thing? Do they not know what the Hezbollah flag looks like?

Summary - Much of Ireland is anti-Israel

Much of Ireland is anti-Israel. Not just the left-wing fringe. But many mainstream politicians too.

  • Ireland is twice as anti-semitic as the UK or US.

  • ADL world survey shows some interesting things.
    • In the 2014 survey, see: "Subject - Attitudes Toward Israel and the Middle East".
    • Ireland 2014 survey
      • 41 percent of Irish have a favourable view of Israel. 28 percent unfavourable. (Wow. Not as bad as you would think.)
      • 49 percent of Irish have a favourable view of Palestine. 20 percent unfavourable.
    • USA 2014 survey
      • 73 percent of Americans have a favourable view of Israel. 13 percent unfavourable.
      • 45 percent of Americans have a favourable view of Palestine. 31 percent unfavourable.
    • Americans seem to be smarter than Irish on foreign policy.

Revolting. But that's my country for you.

Irish Anti-Israel petitions

Shame on anybody who ever signed any of these petitions.

Limerick boycott of the Jews in 1904.
From here.
You would think that Irish people would avoid any boycott of Israel because of its echoes of the Limerick boycott of Jews. But sadly no.

Nazi boycott of Jewish shops in Berlin, 1933.
The placards say: "Germans defend yourselves! Don't buy from Jews."
From here. And more images.
You would think that Europeans would avoid any boycott of Israel because of its echoes of the Nazi boycott of Jews. But sadly no.


Boycott of Israel


Irish thugs protest at an Israeli kiosk selling beauty products in Jervis Street Shopping Centre, Dublin, Jan 2009.
In Odense, Denmark, in Dec 2008, the mob at a similar kiosk selling hair-care products eventually shot the Israelis.

Jew-hating Israel-hating freaks ransack Israeli products in a French supermarket, Mar 2009.
They did this right beside Drancy internment camp, where the French in the 1940s rounded up 65,000 French Jews (men, women, children and babies) for extermination.

Israeli supermarket attack, Mar 2002.
Palestinian suicide bomber targets civilians, killing an Israeli girl and a brave security guard (a father of five children, two of whom are deaf).

Irish band Dervish cancels their tour of Israel, 30 Apr 2012, after foolishly listening to Irish Israel-haters.
They claim they don't want to be political. Too late for that. You've just made an ignorant political statement.
From their facebook. Shame on them.

Dervish played on an Irish trade mission to China in Jan 2005.

Palestine "solidarity"

The front page of the Cork Palestine Solidarity Campaign in 2013 supports Islamic terrorist Samer Issawi.
Samer Issawi was convicted of firing a gun at a civilian vehicle, firing an AK47 assault rifle at civilian buses, and manufacturing pipe bombs used in attacks on Israeli civilians. "This included four shootings, between July 2001 and February 2002, in which Isawi and his partners fired on police cars and buses travelling between Ma'ale Adumim and Jerusalem. In one attack, a policeman was injured and required surgery. On October 30, 2001, Isawi, together with an accomplice, fired at two students walking from the Hebrew University campus to their car in a nearby parking lot. In another case, Isawi provided guns and explosive devices to a squad, who fired on a bus. Finally, in December 2001, Isawi ordered an attack on security personnel at Hebrew University, providing a squad with a pistol and a pipebomb."
And this jihadi is a hero to the Cork Palestine Solidarity Campaign!

Hezbollah terrorist flag at IPSC march, Dublin, Apr 2002.
Speakers at this march included people from the IPSC, Green Party, Sinn Fein, SWP and the Socialist Party.
From here.

IPSC, 10 Dec 2014, wishes "RIP" to a dead terrorist, Ziad Abu Ein of Fatah (extradited from the US in 1981 over the murder of two Israelis in Tiberias in 1979). The IPSC claims he was "beaten to death" by Israeli soldiers, which is total nonsense.

Irish intellectual Desmond Fennell proposes sending heavy weapons to the Islamic terrorist jihad against Israel, Feb 2009.

Climate change activist John Gibbons proposes sending heavy weapons to the Islamic terrorist group Hamas, Aug 2014.

"Israelity" (2009), a nasty, menacing, anti-Israel song from Irish singer Mickey Joe Harte.
He is angry with Israel for responding to years of Hamas rocket fire.
The song is quite menacing, saying to Israel: "you come and stir the hate in me" and "you give them reasons now to fight" and "this is war" and "this is not the end .. this is only just beginning".

Irish rapper Aodhan Chezney Conlon poses with a mural of the terrorist PFLP, the butchers of the Jewish children of Itamar.
This features in the video of his anti-Israel song "Palestinian Child" (2015).
So violence is the answer to Gaza's problems is it? Great contribution.
The message of this song, like so many other left-wing statements, is to say to Hamas: "Carry on doing what you are doing."
