This posting is historical nonsense from A to Z. First, the Irish Famine was caused by Potato Blight, a viral disease which was obviously not understood or preventable in the 1840s, in Ireland or anywhere else. Secondly, it struck hard in south west Ireland, where most deaths occurred, because only potatoes were grown- no other crops, no livestock. Where normal non-mono farming occurred, there was no famine- not, for instance, in northern Ireland or Scotland. Thirdly, there were only limited means of dealing with the starving peasantry in Ireland since there was no way of refrigerating food supplies to these people before this food spoiled. The Catholic church in Ireland did nothing either. Fourthly, the Irish Potato Famine has precisely nothing to do
with the Israel/Palestine conflict. The population of Palestinians, since 1948 or 1967, has grown, not shrunk, and there has been no famine. A comparison between the two is an anti-semitic trope, much like saying that the Jews poison the wells or spread viruses.
