While Palestine burns, the World fiddles "The Blind Eye" (Galway's IPSC tune is otherwise).

Sieg Heil !

Activists from the Galway branch of the IPSC spent seven hours yesterday outside Lynch's castle in Shop st leafleting pedestrians and encouraging them to boycott Israeli Blood Diamonds and Woodie's/Atlantic Homecare DIY stores on account of their unethical selling of Israeli Keder plastic garden products, we've been at it outside Lynch's castle every Saturday for months now, because there's something more to our conscienses than the blind eye and repellent hypocrisy, not so, unfortunately, in the case of the passerby who, focused and full of hate slimed us with a "Sieg Heil" as he passed by.

We should be used to this stuff by now but it still shocks - at least, we have parity of demonisation, as it were, with the Palestinian people who according to the then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset "are beasts walking on two legs." and according to a "high-ranking" IDF officer in January 2002, are all "terrorists" : '’We eliminated all the terrorist squads except one. The problem is that this one consists of 3.5 million Palestinians.’

Lest we forget, the real criminals are the Zionist Israelis in the endless barbarity they visit on the Palestinian people: "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." (David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff).

The Palestinian Hamas government is not interested in a two-state solution i.e. An agreement that would mean the formation of the Palestinian State composed of the West Bank and Gaza side by side with an existing Israeli State within the post 1948 borders.

What the Hamas government want is nothing less than an Islamic State throughout all of Palestine which includes the entire territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, from Southern Lebanon to the border of Egypt and the forced conversion of the Jewish population to Islam or else their expulsion or extermination.

In the interim Hamas and other terrorist groups seek to cause as much chaos inside Israel as possible killing Jewish men women and child by gun or bomb attacks.

Any chance of seeing an awareness promotion campaign on Darfur outside Lynch's Castle? More have been killed there over the past year than all the Arab-Israeli wars put together.And more are being killed every day.
Or is it just that when Jews are involved that you get heated up?

Why dont you organise a protest about Darfur? Instead of criticising peopel who do act for one particular cause maybe you should try and get active yourself?

I repeat. Is it just when Jews are involved that you get heated up?
