Vincent Browne speaking his mind as usual, he is objecting to being tagged with the label Anti-Semite in the aftermath of his comments. now let's see how he will talk himself out of this particular corner he got himself into

Irish TV host: ‘Israel is cancer’

it should take him more than just raising his eyebrows on TV ...

Vincent Browne is correct.

Israel is a cancer eating away at the Palestinian people and a major cause of unrest in the Middle East. Mr.
Browne has nothing to explain or apologize for.

Criticise Israel and you're anti semite.
Well no! Those days are over.

And of course the Middle East was a bastion of peace, civility and technological innovation until the dreaded Israelis came along.
you could argue that europe was a basket case of wars until hitler got rid of them
its just another argument

Very incendiray language by Vinny. Those who know him know he's no ant-semite, however, it does look and sound very bad.

Noticeable that the deputy ambassador had to go on about her Grandparents rather than tackle the issues that Browne correctly raised.
Simple historical fact is that the land was stolen from the Palestinians and nothing the Israelis can do will erase that fact ..........and instead the thuggery ,additional land theft, arrogance, persecution, racism and war mongering it has engaged in since means, what little sympathy it may have garnered is disappearing fast
The zionist project like all colonisation it will ultimately fail

Well done Vincent for not kowtowing to the imposed censorship on the subject most other Irish broadcasters engage in

Is there any criticism of Israel which is not anti semitic?

Am I allowed to say they are not great at hurling, or that their tax system has too many loopholes? Or is that anti Semitic too?
Where I come from that counts as a compliment.

Agree. They seem to have an ability to be involved in trouble through out history. They seem to do little to help themselves out of their problems.

Slightly different to describing Israel as a cancer don't you think?

My golden bolloxxe pal.

Israel is a bulwark against the mad mullahs who would overrun the free world if they got the chance.

The Izzies ensure they don't.

Cop yourself on, sahib.
The Mad Mullahs are a direct symptom of Israel and U.S actions.
Just look at the growth of extremism in the region since the Iraq invasion for example.
Foreign and Zionist meddling in the region is the root cause of almost all the conflict there.
Syria being the latest example.

what? the mad mullahs have been trying to wipe out the western world for centuries... this is not a new phenomena as much as apologists would like to believe

VB could have said "Israel is an obstacle to peace" or "Bibi is a f*cking moron" and no one would care.

"Cancer" is something that gets removed. For someone constantly lecturing others on media ethics, he should know better.

uh oh.....he's in for it now.
It's comments like the one you quoted that make you wonder if the Israelis even know what anti-semetism means.
