‘Irish hatred for Israel is embodied by Gerry Adams’ claims journalist
Israeli newspaperclaims Irish are worst anti-semitic people in Europe
Ireland has been described as the most anti-Semitic country in Europe in an Israeli newspaper Arutz Sheva op-ed. The paper and media company Channel 7 is a religious Zionist publication.
The writer is Giulio Metti, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, He claims Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams embodies the anti- Israelei .
“The Irish hatred for Israel is denationalized and secularized, internationalist, universalist and third-worldist. It's embodied by Gerry Adams, who has led the Irish Republican movement for four decades. He donned a kaffiyeh when he went to Israel to make a TV documentary about Jesus and he met with Hamas' leaders.”
Metti recalls the anti Jewish riots in Limerick in 1904 quoting a priest John Creagh at the time “It is madness”, the Christian leader declared, “for a people to allow an evil to grow in their midst that will cause them ruin”. Orders were given to the Jews’ customers not to buy their goods and to repay their loans. If the Jews walked in the streets they were beaten, confronting crowds shouting “Death to the Jews!” and “Hunt them out”.
Now Meotti says anti Semtic sentiment is rife again in Ireland . “A century later, a committee in Ireland’s Oireachtas, the country’s legislature, called for a national ban on imported products from "Israeli settlements considered internationally as illegal".
The Irish government will also try to take the lead in the European Union in establishing such a ban and will champion an EU-wide ban during Ireland’s EU presidency next year,” he notes.
“Ireland, the last state in the European Union to have full diplomatic relations with Israel, is one the most anti-Semitic countries in Europe.
“Last November, an anti-Israel display was held on Dublin's main pedestrian street, presenting IDF soldiers as Nazis.
“According to the Israeli Embassy in Dublin, not a single Israeli dance or theater company, musician or filmmaker has been invited to Ireland for a decade.
“The Irish government also recently decided to upgrade the Palestinian diplomatic mission in the country. Ireland is the first European Union member to announce such a move, which was initiated by the foreign minister.
“In 2010, town councilmen in Carrickmacross voted to rip out a page of a town's visitors' book because Israel's Ambassador to Ireland, Zion Evrony, signed it.
“Today no senior political figure in the Republic of Ireland would come out on Israel's side. The only Jewish deputy in the Parliament,, Alan Shatter, and the Israeli ambassador, were both compared to the Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels by Sinn Fein MK Aengus O Snodaigh, “ He noted,

Yes, capitalism is very good at providing an abundance of low value items such as food and electronics, just so long as the State (the nation) provideFamilies as well as Catholic Church and government to blame for illegal adoptions
I agree the sole blame should not lie with the Catholic Church or the Irish Government of the time. However, NOTHING can excuse the blatant cruelty be
