Curtesy of the new Israeli consulate in Galway; express Irish passports dispensed today in Shop St.

"We believe the Irish government must declare the forging of Irish passports as an ‘unfriendly act’ and expel the Israeli ambassador"

So you are urgently in need of an Irish passport? Well never fear. Forget the queues at the passport office in Molesworth St, Dublin. Thanks to the actions of the Galway Alliance Against War today, Wednesday 24th March, a new Israeli Consulate was set up on Galway’s Shop Street. And as everyone knows, if you need an Irish passport in a hurry then just go to the Israelis and especially to Mossad.
Brandishing the Star of David flag GAAW members were handing out fake Irish passports to anyone who wanted one. No questions asked. And if you had your own Irish passport handy the same people were offering 5000 Israeli shekels to be allowed to clone it. All in defence of the Israeli state, don’t you know.?

The response on the street was positive, although many a passer-by was unhappy at the sight of the Israeli flag. But when they realised the purpose of the GAAW action they were entirely sympathetic.

And what was the purpose of GAAW’s action?

Over to its spokesperson, Niall Farrell: “The integrity of the Irish passport has been seriously damaged by the criminal act carried out by agents of the Israeli state in January. Those who counterfeited our state’s passports went on to commit murder and therefore put all of us who travel abroad bearing an Irish passport in danger. In our passport it states that the Minister of Foreign Affairs requests all whom it may concern to allow the bearer to ‘pass freely and without hindrance and to afford the bearer all necessary assistance and protection.’ Why would any other state want to respect the Irish passport if our government fails to react to this crime in a forthright fashion? Our government’s failure to act would suggest it is condoning this criminal activity and it will almost certainly mean this activity will be repeated putting every Irish passport holder in even more danger. We believe the Irish government must declare the forging of Irish passports as an ‘unfriendly act’ and expel the Israeli ambassador. We are asking people to contact the Department of Foreign Affairs to demand that this action against Israel happens now.”

Why use the SS logo in Mossad, a bit crude no?

"jesus" : The fact that the Nazi, Waffen-SS share the same inhuman, disregard for human life as Israel and its murder machine in the form of the IDF and Mossad may have something to do with it.?

Your activism today, Galway Alliance is a tonic to conscience or, at least, dare I say it? my Israeli, Jewish conscience - we are not all complicit in Binyamin Netanyahu's crimes against humanity.?

Great piece of street subversion. I've written to our Dept. of Foreign Affairs about the passports issue because I have the feeling that, unlike in the UK, it will be permitted slowly to fade away here. We should make sure that it doesn't and apply pressure to the Department to keep informed on their investigation's progress.

To concerned - I would be more concerned about a certain Isreali General[s?] commenting about the uslefullness of the tactics imposed in the warsaw ghetto by the SS. That it, to use these tactics in containing the people of Palestine. I think there is more to worry about than using an SS logo to represent the Mossad, which I persoanlly find suitable at times

I really dont have a link or reference but if you read enough (truthful) academic material about the Isreali/Palestineian ''conflict'' you will come across it, I assure you.
