offsite link In Praise of Boris Johnson?s Stance on Ukraine Sat Jan 28, 2023 17:00 | Noah Carl
Boris Johnson argues that we should give Ukraine longer-range artillery, tanks and perhaps even planes. This is a coherent position. By contrast, the position of Emmanuel Macron and Olaf Scholz makes no sense at all.

The recent Project Veritas video reveals that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine has been a total flop, but the story has been almost totally ignored by American media, and scrubbed from Google search results, writes Eugyppius.

Dilbert creator and commentator Scott Adams sportingly admits the 'anti-vaxxers' made the right choice, but claims their decision was just a 'coin flip'. Is he giving vaccine sceptics enough credit?

Turns out, the new lobby group urging governments to ban gas boilers is funded by private-jet owning billionaires. Who would have guessed?

IPSC Nakba Commemoration - 17th Feb 2008

category dublin | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Wednesday February 20, 2008 11:59author by IPSC - IPSCauthor email supportpalestine at ireland dot comauthor address 64 Dame Street, Dublin 2author phone 01-6770253 Report this post to the editors

Howth residents and market goers show their support for UN Resolution 194

On Sunday 17th February IPSC activists and supporters held a vigil to commemorate the Palestinian village of Quisarya which was ethnically cleansed by Zionist forces on February 15th 1948. A map of historic Palestine was erected on the green at Howth Quays and members of the public were encouraged to place Palestinian flags in remembrance of the Nakba and symbolically returning the refugees to their lands.
Finding out what its all about
Finding out what its all about

Leaflets and wallet cards calling on Michael Woods TD (Chairman of Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs) to support the implementation of UN Resolution 194 which give Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homeland. The IPSC would like to thank all those who took the time to remember the Nakba.

The 2008 Nakba Campaign organisers would like to thank all of the Howth residents & market goers who stopped to place a flag and symbolically return the Palestinian refugees of the 1948 Nakba to their homes, as required under United Nations Resolution 194, last Sunday.

We hope that discussion of the events of 1948 will lead to the enactment of international law in the region, and create a real possibility for peace.

The first person to place a flag on the map was a tourist going to the market, it transpired that her family were Palestinian and she was very pleased to see the occasion marked.

The date commemorated Qisarya, the first town to be completely expelled, on the 15th February 1948, a day when four other villages in the area were also expelled. Their mosque was converted into a restaurant. They are not allowed return.

In 1948 700,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes, civilians were massacred & hundreds of Palestinian villages deliberately destroyed, this expulsion continues today.
