Ireland’s latest grandstanding shows how provincial it really is - Ireland has joined South Africa in its genocide case against Israel,

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


I reland has joined South Africa in its genocide case against Israel, nailing its hatred of the Jewish state firmly to the doors of The Hague. The Irish government says it felt obliged to intervene to put a stop to Israel’s “indiscriminate use” of explosives in populated areas, “collective punishment” of Gazans, and an impending famine.


Ministers say they carefully pored over the evidence and didn’t take the decision lightly. But it seems likely that Ireland has rowed in behind South Africa less from the evidence of genocide in Gaza,   which is sorely lacking , but for reasons closer to home. The Irish public have long been among the most hostile in Europe to Israel. This is because Ireland has for decades viewed the Israel-Palestine conflict as a rerun of its own bloody struggle with Britain. “We see our history in their eyes,” Leo Varadkar said of the Palestinians in the White House earlier this month. “A story of displacement, of dispossession and national identity questioned and denied, forced emigration, discrimination, and now hunger.”

Ireland, in other words, views the plight of the Palestinians solipsistically – as a recapitulation of its own victimhood, not a unique tragedy in its own right. This has too often spared the Irish public from feeling the need to wrap their heads around the particulars of this messy conflict, more than 3,000 miles from its shores, which are wholly different from Ireland’s fight with Britain. 


While the IRA wanted land, and was eventually willing to compromise, Israel’s antagonists have far grander ambitions – Hamas has made clear in its charter and public utterances it wants to kill not only all the Jews in the Levant, but worldwide. October 7 was effectively a dress rehearsal for how Hamas and its Iranian patrons would like this genocidal crusade to take shape. Short of horse trading in the death of Jews, it is unclear how Israel could meet Hamas halfway, or tolerate having such people as sovereign neighbours. But Ireland will forever be unable to comprehend this if, deep down, they see in the likes of Yahya Sinwar a kind of Michael Collins, or even Gerry Adams.

Happy that you enjoyed it, Sean. Do you think that it's legit to try and associate the Irish war with the Brits to the current Hamas/Gaza/Palestinians and Israel?

Well, lets not forget that Ireland is mostly Catholic, the religion of The Inquisition.
