…and last week’s Hot Press interview with Jason O’Toole. Quite a lot actually, where he talks about socialism (again), the WP, gay marriage, neutrality, Clare Daly and Richard Boyd Barrett and… that small bit of bother in Maynooth.

Shannonwatch “Good to see John Halligan is sticking to his opposition to the US military use of Shannon. In the run-up to the election he signed our Peace Pledge saying he would only join or support a Government that will give a written commitment to the immediate ending of the US military use of Shannon Airport.” https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10154328740826501&id=268685181500 well then he broke his pledge, what a bizarre statement

Interesting. Wonder if he’ll be asked to square that circle.

the pledge has more qualifiers in http://www.peacepledge.ie/sites/peacepledge.ie/files/PeacePledge.pdf The immediate ending of the US military use of Shannon Airport, unless such use is in
strict compliance with international laws on neutrality; etc

We can only hope that the Sinn Fein meeting with the Israelis was restricted to that topic also.

The Palastinians regard SF as their greatest allies in Ireland,even describing Martina Anderson as their ambassador to the EU.

Ah sure that’s ok then, no harm in secret meetings with Likud so, nothing to see here, move along.

Have the Palistinians complained ? Meeting someone at the request of a peace group and emphasising the plight of the Palastinians does’nt seem to draw the ire of the people most oppressed by Israel.It does seem to be of great interest to resident unionist Tawdy and those who swapped weapons and intelligence with the UVF for decades.

Well it seems that some of the Palestinians are in fact complaining Roddy.

The headline reads “Palestinians urge Sinn Féin to end Likud meetings”.

SF’s solidarity with the Palistinians is via their close relationship with the Palistinian authority which this group obviously opposes.Interesting that a stick should be quoting a group mentioning support for the Irish people “that SF knows all about” and the plight of “Catholics and Nationalists” under the Britishyoke” and protestant state for a protestant people” You see when the Provos were cooperating militarily with the PLO and ANC,your mates were cooperating with the UVF and RUC and campaigning for a return to a majority rule Stormont.

That’s the same PLO and ANC whose commitment to overturning capitalism lasted just as long in power as SFs? Yep.
