      really? after all the children killed by the IDF you make a facile remark like this. I hope you choke on your loveless life.

        it’s a fair question Sara, I think you need to calm down and ask yourself how to start behaving like an adult in this world.

          Sara is very tetchy. She wanted feminism to come to Ireland when she saw the photos of the ladies at the Horse Show. Women dressing up and enjoying themselves and who don’t give a fck about what angry people on the internet think.

      they make a cheque out to ‘children of palestine’ followed by the word “only” and a single line strikethrough on the remainder of writing space.

      Hey Lenny Zero, see that bit above where it says “Middle East Children’s Alliance” in blue? That’s a hyperlink or “link” for short. If you click on that it will take you to another website where it says:
      We support children and families in Palestine, Iraq and Lebanon through:
      • Direct aid including food, medicine, medical supplies, and clothes as well as books, toys and school supplies. Since 1988, we have sent more than $19 million in aid to children in Palestine, Iraq and Lebanon
      • Financial support and professional assistance to community organizations in the West Bank and Gaza that help meet Palestinian children’s needs, including clinics, kindergartens, counseling centers, libraries; accessible parks and playgrounds; sports teams, and dance, music and art programs
      • Educational and cultural programs in the US and internationally to increase understanding about the lives of children in the Middle East and the impact of US foreign policy on people in the region
      • University scholarships for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank
      • Providing clean water to children in Palestine by installing water purification and desalination units in schools and kindergartens in the Gaza Strip

      If you spot a bit that says “buy rockets for Hamas” be sure to highlight it. Until then maybe STFU with your passive-aggressive anti-Palestinian children rhetoric, yeah?

        Hey ReproBertie. How may i ask is asking a question about the destination of money from an Irish charity anti-Palestinian children rhetoric?

        1. ReproBertie

          First comment on an article about a fundraiser for children that have so far survived the ongoing slaughter in Palestine passive-aggressively draws a link to hamas rockets thus discouraging potential donors resulting in less money for aforementioned children.

          Also, if you’d bothered to click that link before posting your suspicion-inducing question you’d have seen that it’s an American charity so you’re not just anti-palestinian children but you’re lazy and presumptive too.

          1. Lenny Zero

            So asking questions of where money from a charity operating in Ireland is going is now anti-palestinian children, no wonder rehab got away with it so long, if any questions are attacked in such a manner.

          2. Boycott Israel

            Now you know where the money goes, Lenny. You’ll be supporting the event, I take it?

          3. ReproBertie

            When did you stop beating your partner Lenny?

            That’s the sort of question you asked about an event trying to raise money to help children in a war zone. There were a hundred and one other ways to ask what would happen with the money. You can play the innocent all you like but your intent to link this event to hamas was clear.

          4. Lenny Zero

            @ Boycott Israel
            I have no problem with people attending a charity event once they know where the money is going. I would encourage anyone to do so.

            @ReproBertie
            I’ve never beaten my partner.
            If this was a charity even for African children i would have the same concerns that money would end up in the hands of terrorist there too. These things get undetected if nobody questions them,

          5. ReproBertie

            Well look at you. A hero for the modern age. Raising the questions nobody bothered to ask because the answer was made perfectly clear on the charity’s website. It’s unfortunate that you had to try and link the charity to a terrorist organsation in your quest to discover what was already in the public domain but that’s the price of doing your civic duty.

          6. Lenny Zero

            Ahh the modern age, an era where you get attacked for asking where charity money is going.

          7. ReproBertie

            Ah the modern age, an era where raising money for children in a war zone gets you accused of funding terrorists.

          8. Lenny Zero

            Unfortunately charity money has fallen into the hands of terrorists in the past, so charities should ensure that their money doesn’t get into the hands of terrorists. Seems a bit odd that you cannot ask how they stop that from happening.

    4. myownself

      Lenny Zero, why don’t you ask the charity directly? All the information you need to do so is there, you fool
