''The suicide attacks against Israeli civilians are reprehensible and we call for them to end but so too is the invasion by Israel of Palestinian territory, the attacks against Palestinians and their homes and the deliberate targeting of Palestinian leaders. This must stop and the International Community must intervene to achieve this. I welcome the emergency resolution from the UN Security Council calling for a meaningful bilateral ceasefire and for the Israelis to withdraw from Palestinian territories. Calm voices need to be heard at this time. If both nations are to avoid further suffering, there needs to be a swift return to the historic compromise between Peres and Arafat marked by the Oslo Agreement." - Gerry Adams Easter commemorations - AN PHOBLACHT/REPUBLICAN NEWS

Paul Murphy calls for an intifada against Israel, July 2013.

In an interview (jump to 07:11) on Russian state TV he calls for an uprising, not against the Russian dictatorship but against the democracy of Israel: "You've seen significant protest, significant movements, the potential to redevelop a struggle along the lines of the first intifada. That's the kind of thing that is necessary. Such a movement could link up with the genuine Israeli left, with working people and young people, who don't benefit from the oppression of the Palestinians, overthrow the capitalist establishment of Israel."

What a sinister nutcase.
  • In a passive-aggressive way, he later explains that this is not of course a call for killing. This "intifada" would be peaceful - unlike both previous intifadas.
  • But he is not totally opposed to jihad violence against Israel. Paul Murphy, 25 July 2013, openly supports violence against the IDF. "I think the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves against [Israeli] aggression and that may involve armed defence against soldiers - I wouldn't have a problem with that".
  • He lives in some imaginary world where the jihad targets the IDF rather than all Jews! - The Irish left and Israel - Politicians - Mark Humphrys
''The first intifada, which I referenced, was overwhelmingly based on the tactics of mass struggle from below – major protests, strike action, marches on checkpoints. This is what I think is absolutely needed now. The first intifada brought the Israeli establishment to the negotiation table, where shamefully the aspirations of the Palestinian people were sold out by the PA leadership, with the signing of the Oslo Accords.'' - Paul Murphy MEP defends call for intifada - Socialist Party (Ireland)

My views on the Arab Spring in February 2012:

''Gene Sharp, the American behind the Arab Revolution? In 2007, Hugo Chavez accused Sharp of being part of a CIA-led conspiracy to overthrow his government.'' - The Movement for a Socialist Republic. - Politics.ie

There's Adams statement from the Easter commemoration in 2002, where he clearly condemned suicide bombings against civilians. At that point in time, Éirígí members were in SF, and by extension, supported the Oslo Accords. It was only when they got into bed with the Socialist Party that this thought pattern began to appear, in which bombing civilians became acceptable as a tactic in a mass struggle. I would share the views of Paul Humphrys with regard to the Socialist Party. If they are the Left, I'm a Neo-Nazi.
Meaning talks and agreements are the way forward
Lefties here calling for this or that is irrelevant
It will happen at some stage

Remember channel 4 are looking for comedy writers that use old jokes for a new sitcom
You should send your material

I could write a sitcom about Irish gobshites who defend Israel because they hate Gaelic Ireland. Obviously, it will be a work of surrealism.

''The basis of racial discrimination and colonialism has been economic, and it is with economic weapons that these evils have been and can be overcome.'' - HIM Haile Selassie I, 4 October 1963, United Nations, New York.

Yea, in the long term, I think they should flood the Philadelphia Route and pump water into the Negev, which could be farmed by the people living in Gaza. The PR is the border between Egypt and Israel. The Negev is the dessert to the East of Gaza. Thus removing one of the fundamental causes of the conflict.

The very same people who cheer on violence in the Middle East, are the very same people who were always first in the queue to condemn Irish Revolutionaries when they stood up to British Imperialism and Terror in Ireland. Karl Marx condemned Michael Barrett for the Clerkenwell:

''The London masses, who have shown great sympathy towards Ireland, will be made wild and driven into the arms of a reactionary government. One cannot expect the London proletarians to allow themselves to be blown up in honour of Fenian emissaries.''

22 years after 1,000,000 Gaelic Irish peasants had starved to death. Barrett's speech from the dock was classic:

''I am far from denying, nor will the force of circumstances compel me to deny my love of my native land. I love my country and if it is murderous to love Ireland dearer than I love my life, then it is true, I am a murderer. If my life were ten times dearer than it is and if I could by any means, redress the wrongs of that persecuted land by the sacrifice of my life, I would willingly and gladly do so."



Hypocrisy is putting it mildly. When you say that Adams never spoke up for people who were wrongly convicted for IRA bombings, I presume you mean the Birmingham Six and the Guildford Four? The Socialist Party stood up for Paddy Hill in the 2010's, and not in the 1980's and the 1990's. That is the measure of those people.

If it were possible to irrigate the Negev the Israelis would have done it by now. Millions of acres of desert have already been turned into arible land by the Jews they have thought of this.
Despite your recollection of floury speeches from the past the religious fervour and entrenched views won't be swayed by such prose.
When men move to the centre away from fundamentalism and extremism like Mandela did, and convince their people and opponents alike to follow, then there will be the platform for meaningful talks and path to meaningful peace. Martin Mcguinness did it in Northern Ireland as did former extreme loyalists. It will happen in the ME they have bigger problems in my view but the ordinary Palestinians will get someone to inspire and lead. All the finger pointing and anger from the Irish left is doing is making the Irish left feel good and smug about themselves and by supporting organisations like the sinister BdS is helping prolong the current situation (to use a Mcguinness word).
This is more serious than water charges people are being killed. The region needs support from reasonable rational people but most of all They need these middle ground leaders.

You are just another devotee to the sinister cult BdS
