    Belfast City Cemetery: 13 Jewish graves damaged in attack - BBC News

    William Humphrey from the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) said he was "disgusted and appalled".

    "I understand that council staff reported that eight youths, supported by a larger crowd, caused the damage, using hammers and blocks," he said.


    It seems hardly a week goes by without an attack on "minorities" in Belfast. I'm told it's often down to loyalist affiliated thugs. :(

    They just do that because Republicans wave Palestinian flags. Politically speaking most loyalists are openly far right and there have been known links to neo-nazi groups such as C18.

    I think you'll find it was "nationalist youth" who'd got a bit excited over the Celtic- Hapoel match midweek. The bhoys in green do a nice line in anti-semitism, as evidenced by one of their more prominant supporters recently referring to Jews as "sub-human rats".
    Both sides contain their fair share of arseholes.
    But feel free to tarnish every working class Protestant as a knuckle dragging bigot if it suits your narrative.

    Just been talking to someone at home, and apparently this happened not far from the Falls at all.

    So, almost certainly not those of the loyal persuasion, but their equivalents on the other side.

    It wasn't "jews" but Zionists Edinburgh NUS delegate calls Zionists ‘sub-human rats’ in addition being an nus delegate doesn't really make you prominent. What's your agenda I wonder

    Yeah, well, that guy's pretty clearly the sort of shitehawk who thinks "Jew" and "Zionist" are synonyms.

    And he describes himself as a Communist. Well, anti-semitism is a breach of party discipline, so to the Gulag with him.

    It would make sense seeing as they've adopted the Palestininan cause.

    yes. so iyo everyone who espouses the palestinian cause is at least predisposed to attacking jewish graves. top work.

    There is no such predisposition, but there is a responsibility on those who would espouse the palestinian cause to ensure that their message cannot be misinterpreted or misused. I've never been entirely sure that supporters of that cause in the west have been properly aware of that responsibility - certainly what I've heard about the Irish Palestine Solidarity campaign (or whatever it's called - the one in the 26 counties I mean) doesn't inspire confidence on that score.

    Considering how much EU money was poured into the north the strength of the pro Brexit campaign up here would be surprising, if you didn't know that wrong headed pig ignorant bollocks are all adjectives that suit Northern Ireland politics to a T.

    I had fellow Irish tell me that the racism was all down to the loyalists. How naive of me.

    Bumped.

    Am I wrong in assuming both these flags could be seen as loyalist?

    upload_2018-10-4_9-8-37.png

    I recognise the first one, having seen it around. The second one I'm not entirely familiar with. Anyone know the specifics of it?

    Thanks.

    Both Loyalists. I've not seen the second but can surmise its represents the idea that the 6 counties are British.

    I missed this and you probably don't post here anymore but I was talking about loyalists.

    So you're tarring everyone with the same brush.
    :rolleyes:

    I happen to support the Palestinian cause. I'm not anti Semitic. I just think that I relate to what's happening in Palestine and that the Israelis have made Palestinians lives horrendously miserable in the same way that the Brit Army and government made Irish Catholics lives miserable for way too long.

    But you would align me with an anti Semitic viewpoint just because I criticise a country?

    Come off it.


    Eta...just saw this is an old thread....:facepalm:
