We welcome any GAA clothing to aid the refugees in Palestine and Gaza. This is not just to cloth the refugees, but also to again highlight the mistreatment of Palestinian people under occupation and shows solidarity from the Irish people.

Nára lag Dia sibh. Israel is out of control. I am reading a book by an Israeli lady called Palestine in Israeli schoolbooks, about how Israeli kids are indoctrinated to think about Palestinians from an early age. It is such a mess and also a tragedy for Jewish people who don't get a proper education.

Haven't the Palestinians suffered enough without going around in Derry jerseys?

alright wild weasel. Check the glen facebook/twitter and see what day they are collecting. I think they may be stopped at present as they have been doing it for last number of weeks; but double check. If not you can post them. DM if you provide the latter.

 If you can, can you provide a picture of yourself holding the jerseys too. If you don't want to identify 'wildweasel74' hen stick a balaclava over your head for the picture whilst holding the GAA jerseys................ on second thoughts scrap that!lol

Second time which I sent articles with pictures into hoganstand.com for this campaign.

Yet again no posting on site or reply. I even posted on their forum but they have failed to let it register.

I have sent numerous other articles into site over years and they have posted them, without a reply or thanks.

I am a freelance journalist myself and they are not well-liked as they poach a lot of stories amongst news reporters

Apparently Ryan McMenamin jerseys have been proscribed due to their effect on other people in the vicinity of the wearer

Good on Hoganstand if they refuse to align with or promote a campaign which seeks to highlight a non-existent "occupation" while ignoring the Islamist Hamas regime's gross mistreatment of its own people in Gaza.

The West Bank has been disputed territory for centuries. Prior to the 1967 Six-Day War, it was part of Jordan. Today the West Bank (and also Gaza) has higher life expectancy than Jordan, Syria, Egypt or Iraq so the theory that Israel's presence there is a somehow unique oppression of its inhabitants doesn't hold water.

Every single settlement is illegal under international law. The West Bank is no more disputed than Co Offaly is.
