A demonstration held this afternoon outside the Israeli Embassy, Pembroke Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin by Gaza Action Ireland and the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign..

Protesters, including Trevor Hogan (bottom centre) and (top) from left Zayd Abdullah and Fatimah Abdullah with their mother Zainab Heaney, formed a symbolic ‘siege’ around the embassy today, calling for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador and remembering the victims of recent bombings.

      I still hate Israel? Don’t I?

      It’s been a few days. Robin Williams grabbed my attention for a bit there.

      Anyway, Israel bad?

        A bit less of a flippant attitude about the killers of hundreds and hundreds of children in the past month would be appreciated.

          You must have been getting withdrawal symptoms….no Israel bashing posts for a whole day.

    Good oul Mrs Heaney, it only seems like yesterday she was protesting outside the French embassy wearing a Burqa

    I can see why she’s a fan.

      You’re right. They should simultaneously try to address every injustice in the world.

      Or would it be more effective to pick one issue and try to do something about that?

      People hear about hundreds of children getting killed. They decide to do what they can.

      And you criticise them.

      You’re a moron.

      And whose embassy should they protest to for that Brian?

      Israel is a Government that is recognised by the international community. It is obliged to operate within the parameters of international law but it does not. ISIS is a terrorist organisation.

        shouldn’t you be locked in a closet somewhere, drinking tea and having a natter with the other auld wans?
