    Default Terrorism? Or should that be violence?

    “And two events today exposed the double standards of Sinn Fein/IRA when it comes to terrorism. The first was Raymond McCartney’s comments on the Nolan Show this morning when, after being challenged as to the difference between the murder of Prison Officers by the Provisionals and yesterday’s murder, he justified the IRA campaign by saying that at time there was “no alternative”. Shameful the DUP chair of the Justice Committee who was appearing on the programme at the same time, Paul Givan, didn’t utter one word of challenge to McCartney’s disgusting comments.

    “Later on, Gerry Kelly – who infamously shot a prison officer in the head – demanded the release of Padraic Wilson who today appeared in court charged with IRA offences. There was no suggestion from Kelly that justice should be allowed to run its course. Rather, he stated that Sinn Fein will continue to support Wilson.

    “Just as the Provos did, so their blood brothers did yesterday. And Sinn Fein/IRA evidently remains wedded to the justification of terror.”

    Jim Allister believes no one from the Unionist government British Army/B Specials/UDR/RUC/MI whatever should be persued for any killing in Ireland.
    Handy, that.
    Jim Allister (or unionism in general) will not discuss why the conflict exploded as it did in 1969. If Raymond McCartney's comments were "disgusting" shouldn't he tell us what alternative was available to nationalists?

    Republicans really can't win with this lot.

    Republican: "I support the killing of David Black"
    Unionist: "Vile, evil scum!"

    Republican: "I unreservedly condemn the killing of David Black"
    Unionist: "Hypocritical vile, evil scum!"

    well on here it was more a case of some republicans condemning the murder while expecting praise and a pat on the back for condemning a murder...and other republicans not condemning the murder but not having the balls to say why... and then we had some other republicans who said 'well what did you expect its all the proddy brit planter's fault'...

    I oppose violence.
    People like Jim Allister have a duty to tell Nationalists what they should have done in face of the violence visited upon them by the discredited Unionist state in this part of Ireland if they think their response was not justified.
    What would Jim Allister have done if he was living in Ardoyne in 1969, took the RUC to a Unionist state court to stop them attacking people?

    Progress.
    People like Jim Allister believe the evil IRA woke up in 1969 and decided to be bad people, which obviously wasn't the case.
    Jim is wrong.

    Mc Cartney had an option. He could've went into Stormont 30 years ago along with other former IRA men like Paddy Devlin.

    He preferred to stay outside and call Devlin a traitor.
