HPW: Ireland Expels Diplomat

The Huffington Post covered a story about Ireland expelling one of four Israeli diplomats in response to allegations about passport forging. The HPers mostly praised Ireland for its decision and asked that the US and other nations followed suit. Some of the comments went a little too far, though.

The thread is fully moderated and at last count had 870 comments.

Ummm, why is this news story moderated? It's about IRELAND, has NOTHING to do with Israel.
Huffington Post has got to be the biggest bigoted and racists news outlet in the United States.  [Not abusive, but informative.]

That proves that what Ireland needs is a political gang like AIPAC and its subsidiaries to control the Irish government too. Is_rael is probably thinking on the same line just at this moment.

Panziram
True, but Israeli dual nationals in our government are something else. Where do their loyalties truly lie?

Kevin Atlanta
The Emerald Isles are no slouches when it comes to doing the right thing. They don't have an AIPAC to purchase their politicians.

BreezyinVA
That is because to Israel everything is about themselves and only themselves.

Thanks. I love Chomsky. The Germans once felt just as justified in their genocide. Shame on those who continue to watch and do nothing.

PaIestine belongs to the PaIestinians.

Israel is an APARTHEID state, without taking Gaza or the West Bank into consideration. Will it continue to be so even if a two-state solution is implemented? Why wouldn't it be? It would have incentive to get even worse, to push people out and into a land they're never seen.

A tricky situation for you. But more and more people are going to face having to choose where their loyalty lies.

Most Americans were raised Christian, but they had no hestiation to fight the Germans and Italians who were mostly Catholic, nor side with the Chinese, South Koreans, and South Vietnamese who were mainly non-Christian at the time.
Why is it that you, as a Jew, feel your loyalty to a Jewish state? This "state" was formed via terrorism against arab civilians and British peace keepers 62 years ago, and continues to occupy another people, starve them, kill however many they want (about 6,000 since 2000), and live on their land, while they rot in refugee camps.
If a Christian nation - european, asian, african or whatever - did that, I would have no confusion about condemning this rogue pirate state. I hope you consider being a human being first, and a supporter of a state which happens to share your religion second.

100% of the lawyers in Israel's right-wing Likud party side with Netanyahu.
Israel the chosen people who are above the law.

BobdeYoung
screw the HC. we are sick of hearing about it and Israelis using it to profit from it, NOW being no better than the Germans, in fact, WORSE>

alexis101
Excellent move and I will do everything I can to support businesses from Ireland and, of course, do no business with those who support Israel. Remember, if no one funded the Israeli lobbies and military policies, they would cease to exist. That ought to be the goal of anyone interested in human rights: Put Israel back on a boat!
Aja Mazin
"Therefore, behold, the days are coming" says the L-RD, "that they shall no longer say, 'As the L-RD lives
Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt, but, 'As the L-RD lives Who brought up and led the descendants of the House of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them,
And they shall dwell in their own land" -- (Jeremiah 23:7-8)
PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
THE L-RD HAS DRIVEN YOU OUT ONCE, AND THE L-ORD CAN DRIVE YOU OUT AGAIN.  

Aja Mazin
it seems that the "god'' of "the chosen people" neglected to give them eyes and ears.

Godweiser
Then again, Israel doesn't have allies. Just marks.

moflard
Hmm, but most of the Jews who colonized and colonize Israel ALSO own another nationality, so what exactly is your point.

atlantis1star
Not if they keep pissing on America and we finally get the nerve to tell the Israel lobby enough is enough.
A fifth column is a group of people, like the Jewish Lobby and Neocons Richard Pearle and Paul Wolfowitz, which clandestinely undermines a larger group to which it is expected to be loyal, such as America.
Israel thanks the stupid Americans who die in Iraq for Israel's land grab.
All the time while Israel rakes in Billions of American foreign aid, or as I call it welfare, for their social medicine and subsidized housing on Palestinian land.
They sit on the beach at Tel Aviv and laugh at how stupid Americans are to pay for the stealing of Palestine land.

atlantis1star
Netanyahu will sit there and spread the Israel propaganda lie. All the while the IFD thugs will get a pass along with medal they got for killing nine innocent unarmed activists. What part of oppressive apartheid fascist state don't Americans get?
I understand Bush with the Jewish lobby, Wolfowitz, Bolton and Pearl calling the shots, but OBAMA?? Where is the CHANGE I voted for?

Panziram
It's quite obvious that Israel owns Obama too.
I live in the United States of America, not Israel.
I want my president and my government to support and defend MY country, not a criminal rogue state with no regard for law, decency, or human life.

JPETERB
Judging by the body count of Israelis and Non-Israelis, the murderers are winning.

chedet
I'm waiting for Israel's apologists to crawl out from where ever they are hiding and cry anti-semitism.
[response]
Panziram
They're receiving their instructions now. They'll be here soon.

Adam Atheist
at least the Irish have the balls to speak out against self proclaimed "god's chosen people

FalseConsciousness
The Irish people are lucky to have a government that stands up to the arrogant and brutal Israelis. If only the US would seek justice for its citizens when they're victimized by Israeli state terrorism

atlantis1star
Israel is a Terrorist state that puts Israel first above the law and above anyone not a Jew.
We give Israel $3 BILLION DOLLARS IN AID For what! To kill more Palestinians with predator missiles, Apache helicopters and M-1 tanks? We are being dragged into the same spider-hole of world outrage as is Israel.

chillypalmer
little hope here. The Israeli Mafia is in control of Congress.

goodwill2
Taking action against Isreal for its criminality? The Irish must be anti-sem1tes. /sarcasm

Rianna
I guess the US can learn from this. This is how you deal with any country that breaks international law, and takes advantage of another nation. We have had Americans killed by Israel, we have had Israel spy on us, sell our weapons to China, try to sell nuclear weapons to apartheid South Africa, kill civilians in neighboring countries, and not a single word of condemnation or outrage from the US. The Jewish lobby have becoming masters at silencing the US. We are now mute.

  1. When its Israel the Jews are news. Its not to hard to figure out HP would NOT have covered the story had it involved some other country's diplomat.
