A group of 660 Israeli political figures and legislators are urging Ireland to formally recognize a Palestinian state, these figures are and have been highly influential in Israeli and international politics. The group includes the former Israeli Attorney General Michael Ben-Yair, former Israeli Ambassador to South Africa Ilan Baruch, and Nobel Prize Laureate Daniel Kahneman.
In October the U.K.’s parliament voted to recognize a state of Palestine and also Sweden being the first European country to officially recognize Palestine. Spain was quick to follow suit. Now it’s time for Ireland and others to do the same.
The people of Ireland showed they where clearly in support of Palestine with demonstrations up and down the country as Israels slaughter of the indigenous population of Palestine continued during Israels last incursion into the Gaza strip. Day and daily it continues but it seems certain events be it a kid being shot in the face or houses being demolished are not for public consumption and only when an event that effects Israel come up shall the Mainstream talk about the situation there.
I am not condoning any violence but it seems to me that only when Palestinians rise is the only time the MSM shines the light on what is happening there. Are some people who are murdered more worthy and more important that another? No so then why such a major discrepancy in the reporting on the situation there.
