General discussion / Re: The Palestine thread

Netanyahu is a fruitcake. Europe has more Muslims than Jews.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, has said he expects Europeans to follow US suit in recognising Jerusalem as the country’s capital. In a first visit to Brussels by an Israeli head of state in 22 years, Mr Netanyahu told EU leaders on Monday that it was time they “recognised the facts”. 

He said President Donald Trump's move,condemned by the Palestinians and by European governments, should be emulated by them.

"It's time that the Palestinians recognise the Jewish state and also recognise the fact that it has a capital. It's called Jerusalem," he said.

"I believe that, even though we don't have an agreement yet, this is what will happen in the future.

"I believe that all, or most, of the European countries will move their embassies to Jerusalem, recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and engage robustly with us for security, prosperity and peace."

He said the reality of seeing Jerusalem as Israel's capital "doesn't obviate peace, it makes peace possible." 

Federica Mogherini, EU foreign policy chief, said that the bloc would continue to recognise the "international consensus" on Jerusalem.

This thread has been running for 7 years now, and all the facts presented and debated over the years
shows that the end goal of Zionism is to take over all the land that is what is left of Palestine.

Bit by bit they are building new settlements, bulldozing Palestinian houses, filling jails with all before them,
and this is just in the West Bank. In Gaza, they have unleashed 3 deadly attacks that has killed 4,000, injured
over 20,000 and destroyed thousands of homes and infrastructure.

The place will be unlivable inside a few decades

The siege on Gaza is into its 10th year, and there is a generation who are now growing up having seen 3 attacks
and are still locked up in the worlds biggest prison. It's inhumane.

The single reason Israel gets away with their crimes against humanity is all down to the support they get from the USA.
Just like the NRA, practically every politician at every level throughout the USA is in the pocket of Israel.

Their voting records prove as much when it comes to all things Israel.

In the UN, the USA uses it veto when it comes to calling Israel to order.

There is no two state solution, never was, and never will be. 

It's time to realise that and boycott Israel in any way we can.

There should be no more of this entertaining of Israeli delegations in Ireland by those who proclaim to stand by Palestine.

It took international support to help bring us to where we are today in Ireland, and it's up to us to help
in any way we can to pass on that solidarity to the Palestinians. They need all the help they can get right now.

The women who walked out of Dunnes stores made a difference, so lets follow their example.
Zionist money bought US politics. It is tied up with wider corrruption. Eg Senatot Tom Coton from Alabama gets half a million dollars per annum. from AIPAC to vote for Israel .

Zionists use anti semitiSM slurs to shut down debate

They also use the Holocaust. Germany is forced into silence.

It is a f**king mess.

Israelis should have pariah status . Only outside force can change anything.

Macron told Netanyahu that Jerusalem is not recognised by France as Israel's capital . Euros are sick of Israel''s shite . The peace process is a sham.

Celtic raised over £100K for Palestinian charities recently

In the past United had more money and better players than City - Hence why United won most of the time. The tide has turned.

(Not in my life time)

They’d plenty money in the 80’s but never won because there were better teams.. stupid post

Money wins titles, in all sports.
except most GAA and other amateur sports

Clann had better players back in the day.  Money would not have beaten the McManuses.

Obama has lost the plot!! Trying to take credit for President Trumps success. What a joker.
according to the FT any decent economic performance is a hangover from Obama.
Let's see how well the economy is doing in a year.

Fox, which has effectively been a state news network, is cementing the base that will stay with Trump. If the base holds, it’s going to be very hard for Republicans to jump ship.”
Matthew Miller, a partner at strategic advisory firm Vianovo and former justice department spokesman, agreed.
“The president has been trying to delegitimise the justice department going back to the summer,” he said. “In the last couple of months we’ve seen the rest of the Republican party join in and follow his lead.

Yeah nothing wrong with spreading round the titles, how would they fair against the Dublin champions?

Cuala aren't reigning AI champions for nothing and will take some stopping.

Puts a bit of perspective on Slaughtneils game against them last year. Slaughtneil will give Na Piarsaigh their fill of it in February although Na Piarsaigh also being recent previous winners will be hotly tipped.

Is big John Lee playing for Liam Mellows?
One of the many fine hurlers who for whatever reason didn't get going at intercounty level.
Mellows have 8 titles now which puts them third behind Castlegar on 17 and Ardrahan on 11.
Sînce Mellows last win in 1970 a lot of "newbie" clubs have been racking up titles but 8 is still a lot to build up to. You need more than one exceptional team.

The standard is very even in Galway at the moment. Of the 4 semi-finalists, Aidan Harte was the only player off the county team with a couple of other panellists. The top 10 or 12 teams seem to be much of a muchness and it is a very healthy state of affairs. I don't think Mellowes will get close to Cuala if the conditions are decent.

There's probably about 15 or 16 clubs that have at least one and some have two intercounty standard players but no club has four or five alone like say Portumna would have had in the recent past.

Probably means no Galway club is going to threaten winning a club All-Ireland at the moment but there is a big pile of good clubs in the championship albeit no great club side right now.
If that means the county team can win a few more all irelands I would be happy to sacrifice the club all Irelands. Athenry gave us some great days out but they were nothing like the buzz  of this September.

2 football counties that have very dominant clubs are Armagh (Cross) and Down (Kilcoo) and neither county is up to much.

Since  the referendum there have been zero deals. Brexit was never even planned. There was popular revulsion at the inequality of the UK economy and opportunistic politicians jumped on the bandwagon but Brexit was never more than a fantasy.
This week May surrendered all of her red lines.

I do not understand the DUP's campaign of lies against Coveney and Varadkar. I am reading a book by Fionnula O Connor called In search of  a state : catholics in northern Ireland. It is about 20 years old. Back then John hume observed how weak unionism was. Now it is deluded.
There will be a united Ireland with some kind of carve out for antrim and north Down and bits of Armagh. It doesn't make sense to piss off the Irish Government.

Trump can say whatever it wants but it means nothing because Jerusalem and its political status has to reflect the demographic status.  There are limits to what Jewish money can buy.

It is acceptable to have an Irish identity in England

Tony Connolly is a great read throughout this whole drama.

It seems to me from reading various things  this was the only thing that was added from Monday to Friday

"In the absence of agreed solutions, the United Kingdom will maintain full alignment with those rules of the internal market and the customs union"

The only question I have is what in the hell is the point of a trade deal now? They are staying in the single market and thats that!

Apart from Nigel none of the prominent Brexiteers appear to be pointing this out. Have they not noticed this text or are they are just shit scarred of losing their jobs with the Tory civil war May's departure would cause, all admist the backdrop  another election? Maybe May played a blinder by putting them in her cabinet.

As for the DUP Are they in the same boat as the hard Brexiteers? Seems like May just told them to go te f**k! The prospect of a Labour governmemt may just have made May more powerful than ever and it looks like somewhere in the week she realised it!

The costs of Brexit have been revealed.  The Tories are more afraid of the voters than they are of the Brexit fruitcakes.
