Extremist pro-Hamas rally in the RDS, and nobody bats an eyelid

I was shocked to read the following over my coffee and croissants this morning.

Apparently radical Islamicists held a pro-Hamas rally in the RDS over the weekend. It was attended by a number of extremists and, inevitably, our very own radicalchicgob********************e, Richard Boyd Barrett.

The Al-Aqsa Festival, which was headlined “Gaza Victory: The Road to Al-Quds”, drew hundreds of people to the RDS Concert Hall on Saturday.
The event, organised by the Palestinian Rights Institute – a body established several years ago by Palestinians living in Ireland, was covered by a TV crew from Al Jazeera’s Arabic-language channel.
Speakers included Azzam Tamimi, the Palestinian director of the London-based Institute of Islamic Political Thought, and Sheikh Yousef al Baz, a Muslim cleric from the West Bank.

Sheikh al Baz’s speech prompted shouts of “Allahu Akbar” from the audience, drawn mostly from the Muslim community. “We supported the jihad and we will do so until Allah grants us victory,” the cleric said. “And that day is not far.”
Pro-Hamas paraphernalia, including DVDs featuring armed Hamas fighters and Sheikh Yassin, the group’s spiritual leader who was assassinated by Israel in 2004, were on sale at the event.
Why has this not been commented on more fully? And why is the Irish establishment so craven and pathetic in its submission before Islamism and muticulturalism that not one voice has been raised in protest, or has even questioned whether such a gathering is welcome in our capital city?

Worrying stuff alright. Concerning Barrett, I'm reminded of the Swedish neo-nazi movement in the early 90s (which was quite strong) who aligned themselves with extreme anti-semetic muslims there, in particular one Ahmed Rami, who had/has this Radio Islam. They even went about providing security for his speeches are so forth. Lunatics always seem to attract other lunatics, regardless of where they're from it seems.

It's all well and fine to want to support people who you may feel are having to endure certain hardships but by supporting groups like Hamas you're making it very clear where you stand. And it's not on the side of peace and reconciliation.

My complaint wasn't with the article itself (though it's interesting that such a gathering is described in purely neutral terms as if it was the most normal event in the world, and no dissenting opinions were expressed, from within or without the Muslim community) but that such an event could pass off pretty much unnoticed.

A pro-Israel meeting would have undoubtedly resulted in protests from Islamisists and the likes of the fascist-appeaser Boyd Barrett, and probably calls for 'peaceful boycotts' from the idiot wings of Fianna Fail and Labour.

Someone who spouts such incitement to violence on our island should be locked up. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and it neatly fits into my characterisation of Botd Barrett on the "new alliance" thread from a few days ago

Richard Boyd Barrett of the Irish Anti-War Movement told attendees that it was “entirely legitimate” to argue that “Israel has no right to exist” because “it is not a normal state but a state built on violence, oppression and apartheid”.
“We must convince people that [Israel] has no right to exist as long as it denies rights to Palestinians,” he added.

"Certain hardships"!!! They've been starved, murdered, tortured and imprisoned in one large holding pen. That not enough for you?

Alliance--Another lousy racist hiding under the veneer of being a liberal and a moderate.

Education is the key here, there are alot of gullable irish people who dont even know what christianity teaches and they are being lured into this false religion.

we need to inform people on the truths of islamic teachings, they are archaic and useless in western society.

Well said. This doesn't bother Richard Boyd Bigot who will happily ally himself with the Muslim Brotherhood to further his self loathing anti-western agenda. Spoilt middle class brats like him should drafted into military boot camps.

Indeed, we have strong incitement laws in this country, they were introduced to deal with fanatics like these. Where were the Gardai?

No it's free speech. Lets not stoop to their level. But lets publicize Boyd Bigot and his odious anti-war movement and expose them as the reprehensible antisemitic, anti-western self loathing cappuccino quaffing leftards they are. This little weasel is feted by the liberal media in this country as some kind of conscience of the middle class.

BINGO!! And while you're at it , expose that sanctimonious twat Cole from PANA who hosts the Holocaust denying Zep-Larouche on his website because she's supposedly anti-Lisbon. She's also in favour of a strong Germany, but irony's lost on these navel-gazing morons.

Antisemitic? My dear boy don't brandish words you simply have no clue how to use. If you wish to see antisemitism at work, then look at what Zionist Jews have done and are doing to the Palestinians. There should be no two state solution at all, Jewish Zionists have no right to the land neither morally nor biblical. The setting up of the Jewish Zionist state has been the single most calumnious event this century, there will be great rejoicing when it is dismantled.

By what mechanism will it be dismantled exactly?
