Thread: Trocaire campaign "biased and partisan" - Charlie Flanagan

  1. #1

    Default Trocaire campaign "biased and partisan" - Charlie Flanagan

    I have on occasion given money to Trocaire, foolishly believing that their objective was solely in the area of providing relief to feed the starving millions in famine stricken areas and economically devastated third world countries and not within the realm of political campaigning.

    I shall not be making the mistake of ever donating money to Trocaire again, as I am sure many others will follow suit after the publication of this article in the Independent:

    Trocaire's call for Israel ban is 'beyond its remit'

    It would appear that Trocaire have been actively involved in a campaign calling for a boycott of West Bank Israeli goods and Fine Gale Chairman Charlie Flanagan has rightly taken them to task on it:

    "I am very concerned about their stance and their political bias. Trocaire is an official organisation linked to Irish Aid -- the State's programme of assistance to developing countries. It is a major recipient of taxpayers' money through Irish Aid.

    "They are currently calling for a boycott of Israeli products and calling for a ban on trade with those producing goods on the West Bank and have called for a ban on what they described as 'illegal goods'. It is my belief they are now engaged in a very partisan political campaign that is beyond their remit."
    Charlie Flanagan goes on to make a very profound observation:

    He added: "I hope every family, whose children brings home a Trocaire box for the mantlepiece, should be aware of the true nature of Trocaire's campaign in the Middle East."
    "If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy." - Thomas Jefferson

    Trocaire has been thoroughly infiltrated by left wing extremist political activists.

    Trocaire should campaign for children. Just not Palestinian children

    But no problem with barnardos, ISPCC etc. engaged in a very partisan political campaign to support the Government's referendum campaign?

    Why is Charlie Flanagan excised about this? I'm not trying to be funny here but are FG great supporters of Israel? No cheap shots please - A night on the canvas with Messrs Ring & Flanagan for the poster who makes the most obvious response about a prominent FG zionist.

    Time to call time on Trocaire's condomless State funded Aids prevention programmes too!
