AS one of millions of Irish people who suffered from the same hate and derogatory examination that our Muslim brothers and sisters are currently subjected to, I, for one, want to express my abject horror at the “McCarthy-ite” activities of Representative Peter King.

To the people I know to be fair and just: Do you remember how the silence hurt? Can you recall the bitter disappointment when those that could have, did not?

Let us not be found wanting now when the grave injustices have arrived upon another’s door.
