    …has Bibi found out that Simo has replaced his old lapdog Charlie ‘friend of israel’ Flanagan…shouldn’t think he’ll find much difference though…

        …old Oliver J was textbook anti-semite but I’d say Charlie wasn’t just doing penance when he joined the Dail ‘friend of israel’ group with Comrade Quinn…three of them at the cabinet table and Tainiste Gilmore up briefing at the embassy…

    This is what is happening.
    Coveney gets called into a room, someone pulls a dossier the Israeli Embassy here has on him.
    Tells him to shut his wordhole about ‘Israel’ and he scurries off back to hide in his constituency until the next cabinet reshuffle.
    And there he realises Varadkar gave him the Foreign Affairs gig to get him out of the country.

        …thanks for this link to the Pilger article…great piece of writing but the first I’ve read with such hope…really hope he is right…

          1. shitferbrains

            The last time Pilger was relevant was when flared trousers were hip. He’s sunk to being an apologist for Milošević.

            Still an apologist for the worst excesses of the Zionists, I see.

            You’re predictable. If nothing else, we can say that much in your favour.

    God what a wretched sight. Coveney probably isn’t all that pro-Palestinian, but he still is crapping a brick. Look at that frightened rabbit stare….

    1. Vote Rep #1

      I guess we see what we want to see. I see two people sharing what looks like a white knuckled handshake while trying to look nonchalant.

  4. You're not the boss of memes

    I wish I was persecuted by inheritance, instead of this muck.

    If only one religion can be right then all religion must be wrong.

    Love the people, hate the god.

      *** people should a big P.

      … The Pope does. He rains, but some people still think it’s his boss.

      When in the Roman Catholic Church do unto others…
      No wait a minute…

      Wrong shower.

    Zionism is the problem. This is a political project predicated on Israeli military dominance by 6.3 million Jews over 366 million Arabs. It can never work in the long term. All Arab military threat has to be bought off through corrupt governments or eliminated, see Iraq, Libya and the failed attempt in Syria. This is not a viable strategy. The Israeli Zionist project is doomed.

      “The Israeli Zionist project is doomed” and what happens then? They are a nuclear power. IF we have another Yom kippur type conflict to bring an end to this “project” what will happen next?

      1. Friscondo

        Therein lies the problem. It was a mad project that the US State Dept. and CIA warned would be disastrous for the region and they were proved right. Only last year in leaked document, MI6 called Israel a destabilising presence in region. This will end in catastrophe for region and beyond.

  6. Truth in the News

    How come the same rules that are required of North Korea are not imposed on Israel, as they have
    rockets, nuclear weapons and no shortage of chemical or biological weapons, in other words weapons
    of mass destruction

      The are acting as sattellite state for the US in the middle east and everyone else is afraid of them because US spend 900BIllion a year on their military and policing the world.

      Also they develop, test and provide all kinds of new high tech weapons and technology such as drones and stuxnet malware code for hacking the infrastructure and controlling the economies of other countries ( See Zero Days 2016.:

      All so that the US under international law(which both completely ignore all the time) will never vote against their illegal expansion of borders in the middle east. The US runs the UN and the IMF which runs most of the economies of the world through debt slavery anyway….

      America close strategic allys and semi-state partners have many privelages.

    Good auld crazy benji…. and once savior of the poor and unfortunate, the lost and confused assitant class president and prefect simon…

    Benji is a religious fundamentalist lunatic and a military dictator in a rogue state and all his predecessors as leaders of the “shin bet” mossad/israeli cia(YES ALL SIX WHO ARE STILL ALIVE) have come out and admitted that what they have done to palestine is wrong… mainly because it can only lead to the eventual destruction of Israel.

    If you don’t believe me watch it in the excellent documentary… The Gatekeepers
    – Not to be confused with The Keepers(Excellent but sweet sufferin jaysus wept!)

    EDIT from earlier post : https://www.broadsheet.ie/2017/07/11/the-gang-that-couldnt-draw-straight/#comment-1839671

    If anyone is interested in hearing about the palestinian problems explained from the horses mouth :

    The always entertaining and interesting Norman Finkelstein :
    “Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History”

    Part 1
    Part 2

    Chomsky defending him against the various smear capaigns by zionism and fellow jews, academics, media forces and intellectuals who support it:

    Here’s a documentary about Finkelstein’s life and fighting against Israel and zionism on behalf of the palestians that’s worth wathcing too but maybe after you know more about him.


    & Many other links and talks with him available that are worth watcing.

    BTW: All the sources and people referenced in these links are Jews themselves….
