Why aren’t the EU calling for sanctions on Israel? And why doesn’t our government make that call? They have no trouble debating sanctions on Belarus, and rightly so, for the kidnapping of a critic of the dictator there. But Israel are actively terrorizing the Arab population in Palestine and not a word. Shameful. #BDS Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC)
LET SYRIANS SORT OUT SYRIA. I spoke last night in the Dáil in support of lifting the sanctions imposed on Syria. These sanctions hurt the poorest, sickest, most vulnerable people, especially children. People Before Profit amended the motion to also condemn the slaugher of the Syrian people by the muderdous Assad regime and oppose all imperialist intervenitions by the US, Russia and regional powers. One correction: in my speech I referred to the fact that Assad’s father, also a dictator, slaughtered 30,000 people in a town called Homs. In fact it was Hama.
