Perhaps she was a zionist settler.

In Belfast, life is easier. You are either a Protestant Israeli or a Catholic Israeli. Many Jews there are Protestant.

It might be a good idea for Jews around the world who don't want to be associated with Israel to use the menorah rather than the Magen David to signify their religion/ethnicity.

I doubt very many Germans use the swastika nor many Japanese use the rising sun flag.

Government to intervene in SA's ICJ case against Israel

https://www.rte.ie/news/politics/2024/0 ... -icj-case/

"Ireland intervened in one of these – the Ukraine v Russia case – and, after a rigorous and comprehensive process of analysis and consultation over the last six weeks, we have determined that we will do so again in the South Africa v Israel case."

As with South Africa, I don't think Israel changes until it feels a very strong economic backlash against its policies. Ireland is probably -- at least in America -- the ideal standard-bearer for beginning that: Israel gets a lot of sympathy in America for obvious reasons, but Ireland probably has the most favorable image of any nation here.

Basically, there are a lot of Irish in America, a lot of the rest of Americans are European, and there is no clear instance to point to where Ireland played the asshole, as there are with most other countries. And the other countries that never played the asshole are mostly African, and they don't look like the people who run America.

I wonder how many people know the SA Boycott started in Dunne's stores in Dublin in 1984 (and no thx to gov). We have a soft spot for Captain Boycott, not.

I didn't know it.

A strike of 2 years 9 months. Would they have gotten government benefits to keep themselves afloat?

I suspect the main reason the old-line Republicans in America want to keep our guaranteed benefits a joke is so that average people can better be controlled.

I'm not sure. I left for Italy and NL in 1976. But I reckon Irish people contributed, just like the Arthur Scargill's miners strike against Thatcher. It was a class war, pure and simple.
The Irish and Britsh Anti-Apartheid movements were founded by Kader Asmal in the 70s. He had his office in TCD next door to our maths department. He later became a minister under Nelson Mandela.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kader_Asmal

Most of the Dutch were in favor of the abolition of apartheid. Those who were for Apartheid wisely kept his mouth shut.
The Netherlands, together with the UK, had one of the largest Anti-Apartheid movements in the world.
 
In the main, I suppose.. Details are devils.

Sadly, Europe is not a great choice to deliver criticism to Israel.

Nor is America.

And Israel will not listen to South Africa, which probably more than any other country has the moral authority to criticize Israel or any other country.
