Free This Lunchtime?

Ciaran Tierney tweetz:

A rally will take place outside City Hall in today (1pm) to express support for a motion to boycott illegal ‘settlement’ (colony) goods. 800,000 ‘settlers’ live beyond the agreed 1967 borders, in contravention of international law.

      Palestine only existed under the British empire
      It only lasted just nearly 28 years.
      Before that part of the ottoman empire.
      Before that other empires, including the roman empire, which brought you the catholic religion.
      I think the earliest settlements were Jewish before Christ according to archaeologists and of course the old testament and the new testament
      Unless pepi you have facts to back up your version of history.

        You use the word facts and old/new testament together, which says a lot.
        Also, what version am I supporting by saying leve Palestina, davey boy? Oh, you made an ass of yourself again. Surprise surprise.

    …careful now…apparently you can get arrested for just showing solidarity with Palestine…wonder who directed that…

        …maybe you should ask the hapless Tyrone supporter who was bundled away in an arm lock by some heavy-handed gardai from a match this weekend for trying to show solidarity with Palestine…reminded me of the treatment of meeted out to Clare Daly…somebody got brownie points…but who from?

    These hypocrites do more harm than good and seek to entrench division.
    Useful idiots to terrorists whose only interest is the destruction of Israel.
    It is interesting that they reserve their outrage for Israel alone.

      My parents boycotted South African goods at the right time. They wasn’t a waste of time. Stealing land and killing children shouldn’t be ignored. And if you can’t or won’t see that you are not on the right side of history. And your constant waffle defending it means you aren’t really here to listen to facts.

        …the power of the boycott in ending apartheid in S Africa was acknowledged by Nelson Mandela and one of his first trips abroad after his release was to visit Ireland to thank people like your parents and specifically the Dunnes Stores workers…the BDS movement is gaining in strength and has the dual effect of providing a non-violent platform for resisting the zionist apartheid regime and showing solidarity with Palestinians…

        I’m not saying it’s a waste of time. I am saying it is wrong headed and hypocritical. It is effectively supporting terrorism.
        Hamas or FATA are not interested in a two state solution. Their stated aim is destroy Israel and “drive the Jews in to the sea”
        launching rockets from hospitals and schools, stabbing unarmed civilians, blowing up buses. This is what you are supporting when you support the BDS movement.

          Irish people don’t care the Hamas wants the utter destruction of Israel and all the people in it. They just love bashing Israel

        2. realPolithicks

          Lets face it Andrew, the current right wing government in Israel is also not interested in a two state solution to this problem.

    Doesn’t matter what line the Jews were to live behind there’d always be someone to find their presence offensive. The Gaza border is the 1967 line – in fact it’s the 1948 line – and still the Palestinians want all of Israel .

    We are weighed down with Israeli business connections here. Many of “our” tech companies have parts in the military machine over there. Electronics, aircraft filters… the list is larger then most would know or care to know.

    We need a list of shops and products to avoid. Make a central place for all this info, a website, a Facebook page, a twitter account. All linked and updated.

    Might exist but it’s not very visible.

      Actually a Facebook page gives a full list
      Look under Jesus is coming Facebook
      Or Google so you want to boycott Israel goods

    Will they boycott their smartphones as they have Israeli made chips in them?

    1. ralph

      I doubt it
      I doubt they will also boycott their tablets and pharmaceuticals and the jobs Israeli companies provide
