And nearly every other bit of the world for that matter.
Gerard Howlin in the Irish Examiner:
"The attempt, sometimes difficult, to pursue a positive agenda with both sides is under sustained attack now
by an ultra anti-Israel lobby in Ireland… Its hallmark is vitriolic, one-sided attack on an “oppressor” and demonisation
of Israel in ways that echo and worryingly perpetuate anti-Semitism….
Fundamentally there is no real Palestinian acceptance of the right of Israel
to exist…. Yasser Arafat died in his bed, but not before he resiled from potential peace at Camp David in 2000.
Abbas similarly refused a deal that offered over 90% of the territory sought in 2008.
Israel asks now, what peace with whom?
Abbas is 82…. Under Abbas’s rule, two thirds of the Arab Christian population of Bethlehem has left….
UNRWA differs completely from the consideration offered to all other refugees in the world by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
It perpetuates inter-generational un-settlement of Palestinian political sentiment. It prevents
state building because ‘return’, not a two-state solution, must, by definition, be the answer to exile.
If, generations later, you are still a UN refugee, you cannot be at home.
If, for those millions, home is Israel, that is destruction for the Jewish state”.
More good news......Leaked report shows that anti-BDS group Creative Community for Peace is linked to the israeli government and is concerned with a growing "silent boycott" in which artists don’t declare their support for Palestinian rights but quietly refrain from performing in israel.
