Open support for Islamic terror
in a republican mural.

Mural is from Belfast, 1982.
This mural was at the corner of Beechmount Avenue ("RPG Avenue") and the Falls Road.
It is now replaced with a new mural.

And it's not like this is ancient history.
SF-IRA have continued this tradition
of opposing the democracies in war:
opposed the democracy of Britain
and supported the imperialist military junta of Argentina
They opposed (and still oppose)
the democracy of Israel
in its war against
Islamic fascism (ongoing since 1947),
and they have openly supported and even collaborated with Israel's Islamofascist enemies.
They opposed (and still oppose)
the democracies of America and Britain in the
war on Iraqi fascism
It is clear that SF-IRA
will never stand with the democracies,
no matter who they fight.
It is clear that,
in a similar situation to WW2 in the future,
SF-IRA would behave in more or less the same way.

Maria Duce (founded 1945).
Shame on any Irish person who does not support their rights.
Irish republicans supporting Argentina:
I had an argument with pro-lifer
about Thatcher and the Falklands in Feb 2014.
She is a bizarre "only in Ireland" combination of Catholic pro-life and anti-Brit, pro-IRA.
My opening statement was:
"Big fan of Argentine imperialism are you? And bombing shopping centres."
And no, it was never clear that she was strongly opposed to either of these things.
Lessons From The Falklands
by Mark Steyn,
January 2003, sums it up:
"The Falklands War is the decisive war of the last quarter-century, if
only because it's the one the world
- like Galtieri - never expected.
It marks the dividing line between the free world's territorial losses
of the Sixties and Seventies and its gains in the Eighties and
The long history of Irish republican sympathy for anti-semites like Nazi Germany
continues today with Irish republican sympathy
for Palestinian and other Islamic terror.
The Palestinians and other Islamists are openly anti-semitic and proud of it.
SF-IRA and other republicans have
a range of trendy reasons
why they support these anti-semites.
They claim it is nothing to do with anti-semitism,
and for some of them that is probably true.
But this is a movement that supported Nazi Germany, remember.
IRA-PLO cooperation: A long, cozy relationship, Sean Gannon, Apr 7, 2009.
He notes that the IRA has helped the Islamists,
and its technology is still helping them today:
"recently, Britain has claimed that IRA-developed bomb-making technology passed on to Hizbullah has been used against its forces in Iraq."
Chris Gaskin, a pro-SFIRA republican blogger, openly supports Islamist attacks on Israel, Dec 2008:
"The PLO and other Palestinian Resistance organisations should avenge this attack with utmost severity."
He approvingly quotes an
anonymous Dublin republican
"it is to be hoped that all Palestinian resistance groups will retaliate against this murderous aggression".
(The latter openly supports the
Gaskin tries to
back out of it
in the comments, saying he didn't mean the Islamists should attack civilians
(as if Islamists even recognise the concept of a civilian Jew).
He is like
saying Israeli settlers should be shot dead,
and then being surprised when they shoot Israeli settler children dead.
So if Gaskin somehow supports Palestinian terror
but does not support attacks on civilians,
maybe he could construct a list of Palestinian terror attacks over the last 20 years that he supports,
and a list of ones he opposes,
and then we could understand his bizarre mind better.
If he ever writes such a list,
tell me here.
This is not a joke. This is real.
This is a real mural in Belfast, 2002.
Picture from here.
The terrorist butcher
is tagged as "Peacemaker - A life devoted to conflict resolution"!
"A life devoted to conflict resolution through bombing airplanes, cafes, shops and buses."
The "Solidarity Wall"
on the Falls Road,
nicely illustrates the problem with many Irish republicans
- their hatred of liberal democracies (the UK, the US, Israel, the Free State),
and their ongoing love affair with romantic foreign tyranny
(Cuba, Libya, Palestine, Argentina, the Nazis).
You would think that for once SF-IRA would decline to protest,
given the good work the troops are doing fighting Islamic religious fascism
One of the Sinn Fein men defended his protest at the liberation of foreign Muslims:
"We have a right to show our opposition against the oppression of Britain here,
in Afghanistan and Iraq."
What a disgusting political party.
Republican Sinn Fein protest a Catholic performing on a record for the brave troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Oct 2008.
"Republican Sinn Féin hit out at the reality television show "X Factor" for cynically using an Irish contestant to promote British Imperial misadventures
A spokesperson for the organisation said that it was morally repugnant that producers would pressurise contestants into endorsing foreign occupation.
... contestants including County Derry's Eoghan Quigg were forced to perform a song in tribute to those who have invaded Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq, and countless other countries, and displaced and murdered the native populace."
It is clear that SF-IRA and its offshoots have not changed since World War Two.
30,000 people at homecoming for British troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, Belfast, Nov 2008.
Nice to see a proper welcome for the British troops
fighting Islamic religious fascism.
However, SF-IRA protested against the British Iraq troops homecoming, Nov 2008.
Here the protesters quote
Communist butcher and tyrant
Ho Chi Minh.
I have had a few Twitter encounters with
of Eirigi Sligo.
He admires Fidel Castro,
the unelected communist dictator who impoverished Cuba.
(But for some reason Casey himself lives in a wealthy capitalist democracy.)
he piously declares that the IDF killing of IHH jihadists in the
Gaza flotilla clash
was a "war crime".
But when asked if Yasser Arafat's
killings of innocent civilian women and children in cafes, shops, buses and airplanes
were also "war crimes"
he goes silent.
Maybe they are celebrating the successful
by PFLP fighters
Fogel children of Itamar:
"One of the suspects, however, returned and stabbed to death three-month-old baby Hadas after she began crying in her crib. ... Amjad said that he was unaware that there were two other children in the house, and that if he knew, he would have stabbed them as well."
Eirigi protest, Apr 2010,
flies the PFLP terrorist flag outside the
Israeli embassy in Dublin.
They are calling for the release of PFLP terrorist leader
The IRA supported Nazi Germany
And the same kind of contempt for liberal parliamentary democracy (Britain, Israel)
and admiration for violent genocidal strongmen (Nazis, Islamists)
is still there in Irish Republicanism today.
is part of the mix too.
"Palestine - Ireland - Hamas - IRA - One struggle"
So declares IRA supporter
illustrates the common support for Islamic terror among IRA people.
I suppose that once you support terror against one liberal democracy,
it is a short step to supporting terror against other liberal democracies.
"THE ONLY JUDE IS A DEAD JUDE ......................."
(The only good Jew is a dead Jew.)
The IRA supported Nazi Germany in WW2.
"CelticLiam88", 16 Oct 2013, shows they would do it again.
"CelticLiam88", 19 Oct 2013, calls for the killing of the 6 million Jews of Israel in order to bring "peace".
He is angry
at those who tried to stop the Holocaust.
There are not many Jews in Ireland, so Republicans have to work hard to find some to attack.
IRA killing of Jews:
You would think that an organisation that worked with the Nazis
would avoid targeting Jews, but no.
The Belfast Jew
founder of a large chain of betting shops,
was shot five times at his house by the IRA in 1977
because he refused to pay them protection money.
He survived, but left Northern Ireland.
The Belfast Jew
a wealthy antiques dealer,
was abducted from his house by the IRA in 1980 and held for ransom.
This was apparently legitimate because he was a "capitalist".
The IRA panicked during negotiations,
and shot him dead
and dumped his body.
Israel-hating thugs from
attack a stall selling Israeli cosmetics, Belfast shopping centre, Jan 2009.
"The staff of the targeted stall were visibly shaken, one woman and one man reduced to tears".
Ireland now is much the same as Ireland in WW2.
Dissident republican thugs
throw paint at the Jews, Belfast shopping centre, 16 Nov 2012.
Just like Father Creagh's followers
in Limerick in 1904-06.
This is a movement that supported Nazi Germany during World War Two.
