While those who chose B are living in a fantasy land. Sport always has been and always will be political to some degree, but when it becomes as much or more about humanitarianism as bout politics, then people have a right, or a responsibility to speak up at every available opportunity. It was sporting boycotts (amongst other boycotts) which contributed hugely to the ending of apartheid in South Africa. Here is an opportunity to once again be on the right side of history, instead of hiding behind 'keep the politics out of it' bull.

No one is stopping you speaking out. No one is stopping you organizing a boycott of Israeli products or sporting events. Knock yourself out.

Well the GardaŪ were confiscating Palestine flags in Navan, so....

Have you any evidence of that whatsoever?

Pretty sure thereís a video of the gardai taking the Palestine flag off the guy

He was asked to take it down as it was obstructing people trying to view the game. Was it subsequently held onto?

Fair play to you John I hope clones is a sea of Palestine flags tomorrow. I'm sure the people of Palestine will see the pictures through social media and it will give them a great boost that they won't have to fight their fight alone.

It will make f**k all difference to the oppressed people of Palestine.

This seems to be a vanity project for a 1 individual, hitching his cause to the GAA.

John, you are a misguided fool at best, and a dangerous f**ker at worst, I think you should be ashamed of yourself

Good luck today John in Clones in drawing attention to the plight of Palestine to 10s of 1000s and more watching it on TV. You certainly got this boy's attention and is he uncomfortable with it or what?! .

Like I said John, never mind the begrudgers, some of whom post on this thread, keep up the good work
When Celtic made their massive Palestine display a few years ago, it didnít change anything but it did give Palestinians a lot of comfort to know that there were people who werenít forgetting them and were supporting them and highlighting their plight
