Last spring, the Jesuit sociologist Micheál MacGréil published the disturbing results of a study on Irish identity and pluralism that found direct links between anti-Israel hysteria and antisemitism in Ireland. More than half of the study’s opinion-poll respondents said they would be unwilling to accept a Jew as a family member, and anti-Jewish bigotry registered the highest in the 18-25 age group. A fifth of the poll respondents said they would bar Irish citizenship to Israelis, and 11.5 per cent said they would bar Irish citizenship to Jews.

Europeans Increasingly Converting to Islam

A man who converts to a religion that says to kill Jews after having the honor of becoming famous because of a mediocre Holocaust movie. The Irish were Nazi allies during World War 2… so were the Muslims. Their identified enemy were the British and the Jews. (Stone Gate Institute Org) Irish actor Liam Neeson says he is thinking about becoming a Muslim after undergoing a spiritual awakening in Turkey. Neeson, who was born into a Roman Catholic family in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, told the London-based newspaper The Sun that he was impressed by the religious atmosphere in Istanbul while filming a movie in the city. He said: “The [Islamic] call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing. There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.” (MORE)  The most hostile country in the European Union : Ireland’s Law Of Return: (miamiherald.com) Neeson’s wife, actress Natasha Richardson, suffered a fatal head injury in a skiing accident in 2009.

The most hostile country in the European Union

November 17, 2011

(Israel Matzav) If you had asked me who is the most hostile country to Israel in the European Union, I would have bet on Sweden. Maybe France. But it’s neither of those. Two and a half years ago, my friend Dymphna posted a lengthy post about anti-Semitism in Ireland. And since then it has only gotten worse.

An outrageous anti-Israel display was held over the weekend on Dublin’s main pedestrian street, presenting IDF soldiers as Nazi troops.
As part of the display, sponsored by the Dublin City Council, a group of pro-Palestinian activists set up a model of the separation fence and an IDF roadblock.
The activists dressed up as soldiers and beat, humiliated and pointed their weapons at other activists dressed as Palestinians, in front of thousands of Irish citizens and tourists.
The display joins accusations voiced against Israel at the Irish parliament last week, on the backdrop of claims that Israel “kidnapped”, abused and undressed Irish nationals who took part in a Gaza-bound flotilla stopped by the Israeli army recently.
Israel has strongly denied the accusations.
But that’s not all. A Facebook group launched about two months ago called for heavy rocks to be thrown at the Israeli Embassy building in Dublin. Anti-Israel elements recently vandalized a Dublin auditorium slated to host a concert by Israeli singer Izhar Ashdot.
The Facebook accounts of Israeli Embassy officials have been attacked by Irish hackers and, in addition, anti-Israeli elements are attempting to disrupt an Israeli film festival organized by the embassy in Dublin next week.
“The Irish government is feeding its people with anti-Israel hatred,” an Israeli official argued. “What we are seeing here is clear anti-Semitism.”

Another country to cross off your summer vacation list. Dymphna reports that Ireland has a long history of this kind of behavior.

When you read these awful Israel-condemning debates in the Irish Senate, remember that Ireland is a country that was neutral during the Holocaust, that sent condolences to Germany on the death of Hitler, and that refused to allow almost any Jewish refugees in, either before, during or after the war. I don’t at all think the Irish politicians are anti-semitic. Rather, they have a range of trendy reasons for their views. But I think Ireland – like most of Europe – should shut up about Jews for a few hundred years.

Indeed.

I feel it a bit in the American Irish community as well. It is shrouded in radical politics, but it is there. That said… there are some Irish Americans who have become part of the Anti-Jihad crowd. Many of Irish blood in New York lost loved ones during 911, but I still feel it is an unstable alliance with Jews. My son is part Irish. It is always kind of there. I wish it were not.

India – Cricket World Champions

April 2, 2011

Whatay match it turned out to be after the underwhelming semi-final with Pakistan. After conceding 274 runs and getting down to 31/2 with both Sehwag and Tendulkar back in the pavilion, people had started losing hope of ever winning the World Cup in their lifetime. But fans on Twitter kept the hopes alive and India’s much-vaunted batting lineup finally came good as Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, and most importantly, the Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni saw India home safely. MS Dhoni finished the match in grand style by lofting Kulasekara for a huge six to set off celebrations all over India.
It took 28 years but in the end, it was worth the wait. This World Cup compared to the others had been especially exciting with great performances mostly involving Ireland, Bangladesh, and England. Taylor’s blitzkrieg against Pakistan was also a sight to behold but in the end, it was India that remained consistent and won the day. Shabash, India.

Debt tensions flare up as Ireland denies bailout…

November 16, 2010

wow is this familiar. I love the way the world laughs at America till they realize that their bath tub is full of the same shit.  Am I the only American that is tired of these backwards Eurotrash that think they are so progressive when in fact they are usually about a year behind… that is why they laugh at us… because they don’t know shit.

A banner complaining about high shop rents is hung on a shop front in central Dublin Friday Nov. 12, 2010. Ireland’s debt crisis eased a notch Friday after European governments reassured investors that new, tougher terms for bailouts will not expose them to higher costs on their current holdings. Traders have been dumping Ireland’s sovereign bonds on fears the government will be unable to manage its outsized banking crisis and that new EU rules being discussed will force investors to take on heavier losses in case of a bailout.
