Irish MP: Israel An "Abhorrent And Despicable" Regime

Fri Jun 30, 2006 11:25 pm

Kind of says it all when a "neutral" party make such comments:

"Irish MP: Israel an "abhorrent and despicable" regime
Press Release, Sinn Féin, 30 June 2006

Statement issued by Aengus Ó Snodaigh Sinn Fein member in the Irish parliament and his party's spokesman on international affairs and human rights

Sinn Féin International Affairs and Human Rights spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD has described Israel as "one of the most abhorrent and despicable regimes on the planet." Questioning the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern in the Dáil today he said the kidnap by Israel of some 25 democratically elected Palestinian representatives demonstrates "the true nature of Israel's commitment to not so democratic principles."

"He said, "Israel is without doubt one of the most abhorrent and despicable regimes on the planet. According to the UN Secretary General for Political Affairs"

suggest, you have a close look at Irish history between 18... and 1924 . And I would suggest you keep a close look at goings on around the crash of the Lusitania in 1916 plus the interesting role and considerations of the Vice Marine Minister Winston Churchill . In that light, you might better understand what goes on there.

Now here is an unbiased, fact laden source, thanks Jacobin.

"The Electronic Intifada (EI) is a not-for-profit, independent publication committed to comprehensive public education on the question of Palestine, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the economic, political, legal, and human dimensions of Israel's 38-year occupation of Palestinian territories. EI provides a needed supplement to mainstream commercial media representations of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."


And th is is great too:

As well as "Sinn Féin, the only all-Ireland party, is committed to achieving a 32-County democratic socialist republic and the end of British rule in Ireland."

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3268864,00.html

Toronto Star reports United Church of Canada's Toronto branch to unveil boycott of Israeli products, companies doing business with its military to end what it calls �illegal occupation of Palestinian lands�; plan calls on Ottawa to require that products originating in the occupied territories be labeled differently from those coming from the rest of Israel

Does this make you happier? Does it make you feel more right? Less alone?

So bombing and killing in refugees is frowned upon but cities are fair game? Lucky Israel, perhaps they can take another pop at Beirut as well. They killed 11,000 Lebanese there last time.

The fact is, the UK or US or France , Germany etc do anything even remotely close to blatant disregard for civilian life like Israel does, they would be (rightly) completely isolated politiclly, economicaly and militarily. Of Course, pointing this out gets you branded as anti-semitic, completely forgetting that Israel is a secular country with a fast growing non-jewish minority.

Now where did you get this from my post? Did I quote anything containing the bombing of innocent people?

No civilians should die, but in war civilian deaths unfortunately perish. But the Palestinians are the only ones willing to kamikaze its own public to obtain G-d knows what.

Jacobin, more people agree with the Irish guy:

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3269498,00.html

Thousands of angry Turks burn Israeli flags, chant pro-Hamas slogans Friday in protest against Israel's offensive in Gaza Strip; in Egypt, thousands rally in one of Egypt's main mosques, many calling on Arab governments to take action to protect Palestinians

You must really feel your case is being handled well, they are now officially burning flags, Israeli this time!

well, I would say it is NOT a secular country. To me it is THE "Jewish" country by self-definition.

But encouraging in so far as happily proving that an Arab-Israeli living-together, or at least a peaceful co-existence IS possible

quite to the contrary. Had the voters HAD the chance to conspire about it, Hamas would have got 45% of the seats in parliament, thereby forcing el-Fatah to form a coalition. It is virtually impossible to arrange such things.

I hate to break the news to you, but the only protest vote is the vote that's not cast. If the Palestinians voted a Hamas majority, then they voted for a Hamas majority.

So..your point is? Did they ask for this trouble or not? When will the Palestineans take responsibility for the fact that they are the root cause of almost all their own troubles. They were thrown out of Jordan and other countries because they caused nothing but trouble, they left their homes in Israel because they decided that the Arabs were coming to kill the Jews and they would be able to return....they chose not to return and claimed that they were forced out and would be massacred if they returned and spent the next 60 years demanding that someone take care of them. They supported terrorists and danced in the streets when their enemies were harmed in any way. Until they realize that they are responsible for their own future and that they aren't going to win a war they will continue to be abused by their own leaders who want nothing more than to ensure their own power bases for whatever reasons they have.

Have you by any chance seen pictures from the Palestinian areas?

You might be correct (that's debatable)..when one group has the latest firearms and technology, and the other group is being treated like a caged animal with nothing to fight with, as well as their dignity, property, and life being assaulted on a continuous/daily basis..I can't blame them sending people to Israel...The deaths of women/children/elderly is extremely skewed towards the Palistinians...its just that when a suicide bomber does something, it gets more press....

Arab nations are very very rough, Israel is nada compared to how Arab countries deal with their own troubles, so according to your logic, this would give Israel quite some field pitch.

Oh and just how have the Arab neighbors tackled the Palestinian refugees? How about Lebanon, how are they doing there? It is so so easy to pick on the scape goat- the common enemy among all Arab nations, I mean at least considder this to be a motive and reason for this disasterous dilemma.

Israel doesn't play fair, why should others?

When did fairness have anything to do with survival?

"Fair" to new T.H.I. members like Jacobin is for Israel to willingly let itself get blown to bits, a little at a time, by people with munitions strapped to their waist; "fair" to him mean Israel doesn't defend itself when rockets are launched from Lebanon, or from Gaza, or anywhere; "fair" to him means simply the destruction of Israel, and the deaths, if need be, of millions of Jews.

That's the only thing "fair" to people like him.

Unfair to him is when Israel wins, fair is when "the others" win, at least that is how I rate him.

So I'm officially re-starting the Terrorist Huggers International.

I will not name a "board of directors", or a "Management Team" like I did a few years ago, because that will probably get deleted-maybe the mods can give me some guidance on that one.

But we all know who makes up THI these days.

You didn't answer the query, man. Do you, or do you not want Israel destroyed? Even if it means the deaths of a few million Jews? Be a man, and tell us!

Yet your only answer is violence. Sheer, unadulterated violence. The Arab/Islamic people can't get past that. They can't grow beyond that concept.

You still haven't answered that basic point.

What about the "human rights' abuse" of blowing up civilians, deliberatly? You always seem to brush that aside, and, it seems, you think that's "fair". Amazing.

"unofficial truce?"  rotfl  what a joke.

It's really very simple. The head of government holds a press conference where he announces the following "we hereby recognize Israel's right to exist as a sovereign state. From this point forward, it is the stated policy of this government to seek peaceful means of resolving our differences with Israel. Yes, it will take some time for us to get the troops in line, but I declare a unilateral cease fire, ask Israel to do likewise, and show forbearance as we struggle to get our internal house in order."

He does that, and in one moment retakes the moral high ground, and puts Israel on the defensive.

"A Hamas spokesman said the group would never recognise Israel, in spite of a deal its leaders signed this week offering implicit recognition of the Jewish state in return for easing an economic blockade......the Popular Resistance Committees pledged to seize more hostages in the West Bank.

Yet you support a state like Israel that is founded on exactly the opposite idea? Israel can't even write itself a constitution because of its religious stance.

Oh ok I see, sounds rather noble, but if you are hinting towards Israel, what land did they occupy which belongs to others, and under what conditions? The rest of it is pure spinning, propaganda linguistic mumbo jumbo.

Lastly how can "defending itself" be a joke or a lie, what do you mean??

no, in parliamentary elections the only protest vote is the vote that IS cast !

Well then you're going to have to explain that concept to me. I always thought when I put a checkmark next to someone's name it meant I wanted them in office.

no, you for instance in Switzerland, where I live, can put a whole list of 30 people, into the box, just to show that you wish them well, while knowing that they have zero chance to get into office. In many places in Britain you can "vote" liberal and clearly know that either the Tory or the Labour will get your voting-zone and go to parliament. So, to "vote" for someone you do NOT wish to have in office is quite common.

the State-of-Israel is by its own definition THE Jewish state, and so of course a religiously defined country and NOT secularist at all. That Arab-Muslim-Israelis have an increasing share in this country is strange, but only possible, as much of this very same country in many ways IS secularist. So that Israel in a way is the "quadratisation of the circle" or in other words a secularist theocratist state --- or just the contrary of this ? I mean the other way round ? you get it ?
