    Default Jesusalem Post article on Ireland taking EU presidency.

    I'm not positive if this is the right forum, but anyway;

    The below link is a popular article on the JP website on the implications for Israel on Ireland takling the EU presidency.

    Eamon Gilmore gets namechecked quite a bit.

    On a lighter note, take some time to read the readers comments below the article. We're one and the same as the Nazi's, it appears. Israel is also disturbingly familiar with Limerick, too.

    Meriwether's commentary on this [in the style of factual, moderator compliant technique]: Its interesting to nore that Israel is paying more and more attention to the opinions the international community is holding on its domestic policies. Following on from UNESCO/Observor status and the new settlement push, hopefully Netanyhu may attribute some value to the necessity of having a respected standing internationally.

    Analysis: Ireland

    The below-the-line comments are much like what you'd read on P.ie. On a good day.

    The comment section on Jpost is roughly akin to the Israel threads on p.ie.

    You know it's going to end up that way.

    If they want comparisons with Nazi policy don’t look any further than the Anschluss of the settlements on Palestinian land.

    semsem5 says

    'Ireland is financially and morally bankrupt'

    that cannot be denied. Otherwise is seems the Israelis have issues. I remember when they used to send their soldiers here to learn Gaeilge so that they could understand what our soldiers were saying over the radio.

    If the thread doesn't interest you, fukk off out of it. Going on precedence, you have nothing valuable to offer in any event.

    The subject matter is an opinion piece on Ireland by Israel's largest newspaper (according to itself anyway).

    As such, its a perfectly valid piece to discuss on this site.

    Are we becomming overly obsessed with what other people think about us ?

    And with respect to Gimmemore, they might wish to do some background analysis as to his actual "popularity" amongst the poor unfortunate mugs who pay for all his posturing on the world stage....
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Its not the most popular newspaper in Israel. Its the most popular English-language newspaper, to be precise.

    Gilmore is one of those Labour people with a Worker's Party background, who tend to be more hostile to Israel. Certainly somebody you have to keep an eye on.

    Indeed. Have we turned into such a bunch of saddos that we're now discussing other people's discussions.
