Irish Magazine Proclaims Israel Does Not Have A Right To Exist...

"Why is The Dubliner, which claims to be "widely regarded as the definitive guide to Irish culture", publishing an op-ed piece that not only disputes Israel's right to exist but also denigrates Jewish history and culture at the same time?

In the immediate aftermath of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call to 'wipe Israel from the face of the map', this magazine's November issue publishes an opinion piece alluding to the same idea by former Irish Labor Minister Justin Keating. While couched in less violent terms than Ahmadinejad, Keating claims:

"...the Zionists have absolutely no right in what they call Israel, that they have built their state not beside but on top of the Palestinian people, and that there can be no peace as long as contemporary Israel retains its present form."

Click the headline and read the whole thing, please do. Europe as a whole pretty much feels the same way as the Irish, and it's difficult to tell if such pronouncements are born within the clacketty synapse of a totally deranged mind or a frightened one. In other words...made-up shit from one detweiller or another, or lets get behind the Arabs before they head here and begin killing OUR women and children as well.
