    Helpful group of people make it obvious to Gardai where to find some people associated with beheadings and funding terrorism.

    Brian Hayes not touching this subject with a barge pole.

    Protestors normally campaign for something to be done – especially when outside of an embassy. Is ‘Not to ISIS’ all they ask?

    Serious Saudi shih all the same.

      In today’s charged climate, any group of north African/Arab men congregating in public probably consider it no harm to have some of these signs on hand, just to nip any potential misunderstandings in the bud.

            Funny story, popularity of said scarves caused China to start manufacturing those en mass, thus destroying one of the few Palestinian Arab industries.

    The Sauds have been skating free and clear for years No better argument for devising internal combustion engines that run on unicorn farts.

    Nothing will be done about this dictatorship. It’s not the oil or the fact that it’s a “royal family” so not really a dictatorship that stops something being done. It’s the fact the west poos Itself when it comes to Saudi Arabia and Iran for that matter.

    Protest corrals, it’s the way of the future!
    Beats blocking traffic on O’Connell bridge for sure.

    No to ISIS? Yes, KSA funded ISIS at the start (to over throw Asad), but only last week did ISIS say they want an uprising in KSA by the people to overthrow the west leaning values of the royal family.

    I’m all for them protesting against the beheading, but the ‘No to ISIS’ approach is a bit reaching at this stage. Sure they could just as easily be outside the US embassy with those signs.
