Those football playing Palestinian victims of a very racist, apartheid, murderous, land-stealing, zionist people, the Israelis, showed a very important moment in Palestine for the world to admire. My very best wishes to Palestine and the Palestinians, a 70-year old victim people that is so much better than its torturer land thief neighbour, Israhell, Israwhell, Isrealhell...
I also especially admire the Jewish people who dare to challenge all Israel's pretences as the victim of the Palestinians, etc.
I wonder if it would not be risky for the American Irish and Scots to defend the Palestinians in the United States of Aggression since the North Africa territories (Syria, Libya, Palestine, Iran, Lebanon, Jordan...) are the targets of the Little Bum of the Middle East, Israel, that country that wants to expand at any cost, militarily that is, since it can afford it, being the LUCKY WINNER of a yearly $4,000,000,000 US gift, enough left, once all military weaponry has been bought, to buy the souls of the US of A's politicians, starting with the US of A PRESIDENTS. And the same went for Canada's previous prime minister, the Conservative government of Stephen Harper, the man Israel's president declared the very best friend of Israel...
Strangely enough, Harper, the Prime Minister is the one who destroyed Canada's Firearms' Registry so the hunting rifles wouldn't have to be registered as they were «not as dangerous» as handguns... Yes! Right! You could kill a human being one mile away with a hunting rifle, but it would be mostly impossible with a handgun. So Stephen Harper, the hunter, got a special gift from Nutàyahu for his total voluntary blindness to Israel's total wrongdoings against the Palestinians and expressly making their lives more and more dire after each Israeli presidential election, from 4 years to 4 years, to 4 years...:

Not bad for a hunting promoter in Canada. That firearms' registry had already cost $200,000,000. Quite a value loss...
Of course, that was to please the hunters of a couple western provinces, the ones whose votes elected Harper as Prime Minister. No wonder some people can't just stand politicians
Why might the next Arab generation not show its best behaviour, according to you?
We have Arabs, Haitians, Koreans, Chinese, Italians, Greeks, etc. in the Montréal area, and they're all very nice people. Of course if some racist idiot does his/her very best to verbally attack any of these people, why would not they react, at least verbally?
Arabs have a great poetry culture, besides the fact that the world might have waited a long time before being able to use arithmetics and algebra, a discovery by the Arabs, besides their contribution to astronomy knowledge.
I have a lot of respect for the other cultures, but I also have a major disdain of the Zionist one, a manipulative, dangerous, racist and dishonnest, and crual culture.
Bravo Ireland for your major risky, but very humane, contribution to the cause of the liberation of Palestine and the Palestinians in the territories wherever they've been expelled to by the Zionists, and kept as prisoners since 1948. I'm very proud of you!
I strongly suggest the 4-episode 6-hour TV series «The Promise», researched (8 years) and directed and produced by a fair and just Jewish BBC collaborator, Peter Kosminsky.
I'm also especially very proud of the few Jewish people who put their lives and jobs at risk for promoting fairness, freedom, land and property recovery... for the Palestinians, starting with the Gazans.
The day Hamas was elected democratically with a majority, that's the day the Israeli president and the future Israeli governments would be the most at ease in constantly attacking, bombing, burning with illegal white phosphorus, limiting access to original Palestinian water sources, killing, famishing, attempting to poison (destruction of the waste water treatment plant...) Palestinians, over and over, particularly when the idiot nutàyahu needs to be re-elected, wants to change the news about his and his wife corruption. Nice family...
Tony Blair has said for the first time that he and other world leaders were wrong to yield to Israeli pressure to impose an immediate boycott of Hamas after the Islamic faction won Palestinian elections in 2006.
As prime minister at the time, Blair offered strong support for the decision – driven by the George W Bush White House – to halt aid to, and cut off relations with, the newly elected Hamas-led Palestinian Authority unless it agreed to recognise Israel, renounce violence and abide by previous agreements between its Fatah predecessors and Israel. The ultimatum was rejected by Hamas. The elections were judged free and fair by international monitors.
Blair, who became envoy of the Middle East quartet – composed of the US, EU, UN and Russia – after leaving Downing Street, now says the international community should have tried to “pull Hamas into a dialogue”. The boycott and Israel’s economic blockade of Gaza, which began the following year, are still in force today. A UN report two years ago said the combined effects of the blockade and the three military offensives conducted in Gaza by Israel since 2009 could make the territory “uninhabitable” by 2020. Humanitarian conditions have worsened markedly since the report was written.
Interviewed for my new book Gaza: Preparing for Dawn, out later this month, Blair said: “In retrospect I think we should have, right at the very beginning, tried to pull [Hamas] into a dialogue and shifted their positions. I think that’s where I would be in retrospect.
“But obviously it was very difficult, the Israelis were very opposed to it. But you know we could have probably worked out a way whereby we did – which in fact we ended up doing anyway, informally.”
