Not only were Israel central to last nights attacks on Syria, but it seems they have hit an Iranian base in Syria a short time ago....

Israeli Immigration Authority releases a video of @LordMayorDublin leaving the country this morning & signing a form prohibiting him from returning without permission (which he will probably never receive). And now they have his real name...

65 people travelling to the same conference were denied entry 

Jerusalem Conference guests denied entry by Israel

At least 65 foreign invitees blocked from participating in meeting in Ramallah organised by the Palestinian Authority.

'There is no Palestine'

Ami Mehl, Israeli ambassador to Ghana, told Ghana's Starr News radio that Mubarak's claims of being denied entry for no reason were "just not true".

"He came without a visa to the border, [and] was asked to wait," Mehl told radio host Naa Dedei Tettey.

"I was in the middle of a conversation with Israeli authorities about his case and when I was notified he had decided to turn back and go back to his hotel in Jordan."

When Tettey mentioned that Mubarak said he had Israeli clearance to visit the West Bank, Mehl said that was a "complete lie".

Mehl then lost his cool after Tettey quoted Mubarak as saying he had permission from Israel to enter the OPT (Occupied Palestinian Territories).

"If you want to talk to me, you will use the terminology I use," he shouted. "There is no OPT; there is no Palestine, there was never a Palestine. It is Israel."

"It's bullsh**, it's propaganda," the Israeli ambassador went on. "[Mubarak] came to Israel without a visa. He is a propaganda machine for the Palestinians, so we do not take him seriously".

Netanyahu Rips Into Dublin Lord Mayor: 'You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself'

Israel's Foreign Ministry summoned Ireland's Ambassador to Israel Alison Kelly to its office on Thursday after Dublin's lord mayor participated in a conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ripped into him for the event.

On his official Facebook page, Netanyahu wrote "I have one message for the mayor: You should be ashamed of yourself," adding "evidence published" in his book on the Mufti's collaboration with the Nazis during the Holocaust, in reference to images of Haj Amin al-Husseini which were reportedly featured at the West Bank conference.

Israel's anger stemmed from an April decision by the Irish city to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and Donncha support for calls to expell Israel's ambassador to Ireland.

The Foreign Ministry claimed the ambassador was summoned over Dublin Lord Mayor Mícheál Mac Donncha participation in the conference as well as what it described as two hostile decisions against Israel this week by the Dublin city council.

The deputy director of the Foreign Ministry's Europe department Rodica Radian-Gordon expressed her "astonishment and deep disappointment" that the mayor chose to participate in a "blatantly anti-Israel event." She added that this was "especially disturbing" because this week Israel commemorates Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"The Israeli government expects an official public response from Ireland with regard to the conduct of both the Dublin city council and the Dublin mayor,  who are waging a campaign of discrimination and hatred against the State of Israel," she added.

On Tuesday, the Dublin mayor was barred from entering the county while he was already in Ramallah after having flown in through Tel Aviv.

The Interior Ministry later admitted Mac Donncha had entered Israel due to a typo. The announcement, by both the interior and the strategic affairs ministries, said Mac Donncha would be denied entry to Israel over his ties to BDS.

In January, Israel summoned the Irish ambassador in Israel for clarification and to express dissatisfaction in light of a proposed bill in Ireland's national parliament calling for a boycott of Israeli settlements.

Ambassador Kelly said then that her government opposed the legislation, which was subsequently postponed

Given their ties to Iran, Lebanon is ripe for an attack in any upcoming attacks on Syria

Especially by Israel or it's proxies

This story is priceless.........


Israel Said It Barred Entry to Dublin's Mayor – but He Got in Because They Misspelled His Name

Israel announced on Tuesday that it had barred Dublin Lord Mayor Mícheál Mac Donncha from entering the country - while he was already in the West Bank city of Ramallah and had flown to Tel Aviv.

The announcement, by both the Interior and the Strategic Affairs Ministries, said that Donncha would be denied entry to Israel over his ties to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

The Strategic Affairs Ministry, in charge of fighting delegitimation of Israel, said in the statement that the reason for the decision was Donncha's ties with the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which promotes boycotts of Israeli companies and international companies who work in Israel.


According to the ministry, the mayor promoted the IPSC's ideas through the city council and publicly expressed support for them. Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said that "the policy I set is clear: He who works consistently to boycott Israel will not enter here."

Minutes after Haaretz reported about the announcement, Donncha tweeted that he was already in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The Interior Ministry confirmed to Haaretz that Donncha had entered the country, initially saying that he must have arrived before the ministry's instruction was delivered.

Later the Interior Ministry admitted that Donncha was able to enter Israel due to the fact that his name was misspelled. A spokesman for Interior Ministry Arye Dery admitted that "we made a mistake at the border crossing."

A source familiar with the details blamed the Strategic Affairs Ministry, saying that the reason for the mishap was that it misspelled Donncha name.

In January, Israel summoned the Irish ambassador in Israel for clarification and to express dissatisfaction in light of a proposed bill in Ireland's national parliament calling for a boycott of Israeli settlements.

Ambassador Alison Kelly said then that her government opposed the legislation, which was subsequently postponed.

A couple of weeks ago the chief apologist for Israeli crimes, Mark Regev, paid a visit to Belfast to celebrate the life of
Belfast bron Isaac Herzog.

This is a montage of who met Regev, and who are celebrating the life of Herzog....





However, here is a bit of background on Isaac Herzog, the man they are all honoring......

Rabbi Herzog served as Rabbi of Belfast from 1916 to 1919 and was appointed Rabbi of Dublin in 1919. A fluent speaker of the Irish language, he supported the First Dáil and the Irish Republican cause during the Irish War of Independence, and became known as "the Sinn Féin Rabbi".

He went on to serve as Chief Rabbi of Ireland between 1922 and 1936, when he immigrated to Palestine to succeed Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook as Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi upon his death.

The following article is well worth reading for some further background to the man everyone has been celebrating recently......

Palestinians in Gaza protest again this Friday near the border.

This time they have lit hundreds of tyres in order to provide a blanket of smoke to obstruct the viwes
of the Israeli snipers who have shot over 800 people, killing 22, in one week.

I always find that the Waterford Whispers are the only news site who tell the truth about what is really happening,
in their own satirical way....

“You Got Over Us Killing Kids On A Beach, You’ll Get Over This”

In an effort to better explain the killings of at least 18 Palestinians attending a mass protest at the Gaza-Israel border, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu reminded everyone about how they got over the fact Israeli forces killed some children playing on a beach four years ago.

“Guys, honestly there’s no reason to get so worked up about the slaughter of innocent people. Just look how we all moved on from a targeted airstrike on some kids playing on a Gaza beach. Let’s save ourselves some time and energy and just skip to the ‘getting over it’ part,” Netanyahu confirmed.

Although Netanyahu was visibly relieved to be taking a break from accusations of corruption and bribery, he also appeared vexed by the insistence in some quarters that Palestinian lives carry value that is on par with other, non-Palestinian human beings.

“You got over us killing kids on a beach, you’ll get over this I promise you. 9 kids were blown up as they played football and watched the World Cup on a nearby TV back in 2014. Starting to sound familiar? Yeah? This is the first time you’ve remembered that in a few years, correct? So all I ask is you do the same for this,” Netanyahu added, urging people calling for investigations and inquiries into the latest killings to just relax already.

“Kids, women, the elderly, the innocent, these pesky terms used to humanise our soldier’s target practice are helping no one. We’ve already investigated the next spate of killings and found ourselves not guilty so you can all move on, thank you”.

The Onion also had their take on the massacre

Teen On Birthright Trip Hadn’t Expected To See So Many Dead Palestinians

JERUSALEM—Saying they were pretty hard to miss during her two-week visit to Israel, teenager Sarah Caplan told reporters Monday that she hadn’t expected to see so many dead Palestinians on her Birthright trip.

“My friend Kate who came over last year said she noticed a couple, but this is way more dead Palestinians than I ever imagined,” said Caplan, who explained that her tour group was prepared to see a few scattered bodies while driving around the country, but were completely caught off guard when they stumbled on entire groups of dead Palestinians near the Gaza border.

“It was cool to see the Western Wall, and we all got to ride camels in the desert, but we still saw a couple bodies there, too.

At first you think it’s just this one-time thing and you don’t worry about it, but pretty soon, you realize they are kind of everywhere.

They didn’t really mention anything about this during the orientation.”

Caplan was also surprised that there were so many people her age in the Israeli Defense Forces killing Palestinians.

Of course they know what Ramadan is. It's that thing those brown lads do every year. You know, the thing with the brown lads.
by painting them as racist morons who sweep a brush over a group of people are you not doing the exact same thing?

I would say it was a genuine mistake and he overlooked the second half of the tweet before retweeting

There were only 16 words in the tweet.

Does he have the capabilities to read that many words in a sentence?

Which is nice, considering she had this to say a couple of weeks ago:

Respectfully, I have said for a long time - the answer is a unified Ireland. One cannot vote for British independence & then blame Ireland if they would want the same. That’s pure hypocrisy.

The Israeli army posted a statement on Twitter on Saturday apparently accepting full responsibility for the killings a day earlier of 15 Palestinians as thousands took part in the Great March of Return in Gaza.

The army then quickly deleted the admission – as more evidence of war crimes by its soldiers came to light – but not before a copy was made by the human rights group B’Tselem.

The now-deleted tweet from the official @IDFSpokesperson account stated: “Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed.”
