Gaza war, Nov 2012
Israeli baby injured in Hamas rocket fire, 15 Nov 2012. This was no accident. Hamas, unlike Israel, deliberately targets civilians, and is proud of it.

Britain finally gets rid of Abu Hamza, 5 Oct 2012.
A great day for British sovereignty.
Every decent British person celebrates.

Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs proposes Irish ban on Israeli goods, Sept 2012
All members of Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade support ban on goods from Israeli settlements, Sept 2012. They listened to submissions from the anti-Israel Christian group EAPPI. Shame, shame on Ireland.
Membership of the Joint Committee as at Sept 2012.
It includes the anti-Israel David Norris and Mark Daly.
The "Innocence of Muslims" riots, Sept 2012
The defining photo of the Obama presidency?
The maker of Innocence of Muslims is taken away at night to discuss parole violations. Yes, it seems he did violate parole. But the optics of this are really bad, and will travel round the Islamic world. The image this sends of America is terrible. Why not send police to guard his house, and the parole officer can visit for a chat in daytime.

Michael D. video goes viral among lefties, Aug 2012
Michael D. Higgins at a candlelit vigil in 2004 mourning the death of the Jew-killing terrorist Yasser Arafat.
I don't think this guy is in any position to be calling someone else a "wanker".

A new dark ages begins for Mali
A new dark ages begins for Egypt
The Mosque of Ibn Tulun in Cairo, as viewed by Israeli pilots as they flew over Egypt unimpeded in the Six Day War in 1967, having destroyed the Egyptian air force in one morning.
It looks like the idiot Egyptian people have voted for Israeli jets in their skies again.

EU fiscal union referendum, 31 May 2012
I followed Libertas in voting No.
I blame the EU and monetary union for the Irish crisis. Joining the euro was clearly a mistake for Ireland. Indeed the euro looks like a mistake for the whole EU. And the Irish government made the taxpayer take on massive private debts to save the euro. But why save the euro? If the euro doesn't work, end it or leave it. If the EU doesn't work, end it or leave it. I have no emotional commitment to either.
But none of the main Irish parties are Eurosceptic. Instead they are going the other way, signing us into an increasing EU fiscal union as well as EU monetary union. Is there no party that will put Ireland first?
Things that make me ashamed to be Irish:
Sign the petition against the boycott.

Michael D. Higgins welcomes Chinese vice-president, 20 Feb 2012
Our anti-American President Michael D. Higgins protested the visits to Ireland of elected U.S. Presidents Reagan and Bush in 1984 and 2004.
But apparently the unelected Vice-President of China is fine.
From Chinese state TV, 21 Feb 2012.
Fr Eugene O'Neill of Belfast nails Michael D. in a beautifully worded piece: "I .. found it interesting in the last few days to see the touching of the hem of the Chinese vice-premier by Michael D Higgins who I remember as a schoolboy was out protesting against Ronald Reagan. We know China's human rights record - still the biggest executioner in the world, oppression of massive numbers of Christians, Falun Gong or anyone opposed to them - don't we have values beyond the economy?" Classic!
