People Are Going Pretty Crazy For This Clip Of An Irish Senator’s Speech About Gaza

By Siraj Datoo | BuzzFeed Staff

The Irish senator called for an expulsion of the Israeli ambassador and condemned military attacks on schools in Gaza. “Israel’s policy is shoot first and weep after,” he said.

I’ve concluded Israel supporters are out of their minds

They are violent and viral minded hypocrites believing whatever fairy tale they can imagine. Their villainship is only capable of self-propelled selective reasoning.

They repeat aversions against “non-them” so they can feel at purpose against a common “enemy”; as they must have a anti-thesis to their victimhood. They rense and repeat the hagelian principle to synthesize individual experience in uniformity with their monolithic narrative, deluging all dissonance from our minds and captivating all resonance with their insanity.

I've never seen a people abuse God so much.

New World after Old World they seek out warfare against adverse minds to nourish their pathogenic routines, and to be quite honest I have had enough of their pretension!

Their minds are marked like a joker and they don’t belong in the American deck, they swindle our politics and it is about time we expel their delusions from our normalcy once and for all.

We the People need to speak up everywhere about this... at some point they have to realize the suffering they cause.

After concluding that Israel

After concluding that Israel supporters are out of their minds, I wonder if you have ever lived a day in Israel?

To make such a proclamation should take experience and first hand observation.

Have you ever lived in the Middle East for a single day?

Just one day, ever?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Have you ever lived a day...

in Gaza or the West Bank? Just one day, ever?

Minnesota Mary

I do have friends...

that have spent many days in the Palestinian areas, and what they reported to me makes me know that life as a Palestinian under Israeli rule is torture. Some years ago the German Catholic Bishops toured the Palestinian areas and they likened their conditions to the holocaust. Of course they were forced to shut their mouths about it darned quick!

Minnesota Mary

No. Nobody here on the Daily

No. Nobody here on the Daily Paul has ever lived a day there.

That's my point.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I am talking about ZOG in this country not the middle east

but to answer your question NO, However I did live in the U.S. while my dad and brother fought in the Gulf war, Desert Storm and the Iraq war. Being a kid without a male influence in my life I suffered serious anxiety and researched everything I could find out about why we are at war. I now know the FED inside and out, know the theurgical PNAC and AIPAC, ADL, and JDL; they are all prisoners unto themselves so I decided it was best for me to support the truth. I spent my whole life a truther so I could not be like them.

Just thought i'd let ya know since you are looking for something personal

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.


Move forward with war crimes... Through ICC...

I'm not a fan of the International Criminal Court.

Supporting the ICC? May as well donate money to the United Nations while you're at it.

If the ICC had their way, every American citizen that owns a gun would be put on trial.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

He's quite firm and vehement in his beliefs

That is a brave stand against inaction.

Here's a Politico article condemning the Gaza action, it hits some buttons:

Good for him. Everyone here

Good for him. Everyone here knows the truth but they are too scared to say it. This guy has more courage on his pinky nail than all of congress put together.

I don't get it though

Isn't the plan to destroy Israel? How can they live amongst each other? Can this really happen? I think that is what Israel fears. They fear if the they agree on terms, it might back fire on them in time. They fear being destroyed. Don't you people see that? I am not saying killing thousands of people is the right thing to do but its like a bully that got beat up and refuses to get beat up again so he goes nuts every time he is stepped on.

"Don't you people get that?"

"Don't you people get that?" No, 'they don't get that' because they don't care about the Israeli people. Israel is the enemy, the bad guy, no matter what the other side does, no matter how many calls for Israel's destruction, for the destruction of the Jewish people, no matter how many hundreds and thousands of rockets they fire off into Israeli towns, cities, neighborhoods, no matter how much LAND, such as the Sinai, such as Gaza, Israel gives up to them in a naïve hope for peace, no matter how much money and aid and food and clothing and steel and concrete Israel and the western word GIVE to the poor victims, the poor Palestinians, through their elected leadership, HAMAS, who use this aid to spread terror and hatred and teach child abusive victimhood and hatred to their children, and who spend YEARS building sophisticated underground TUNNELS with which to attack Israel, rather than building homes and schools and hospitals.
Israel and the Jewish people are HATED by most of the world, always have been and always will because, though they are far from perfect, they represent the presence of God on this earth, and the world HATES GOD. As believers in the God of the Bible, Christians are also hated by the world. There is so much insane hatred for Israel on this site and so many lies and misinformation about Israel that it is hard to believe that intelligent people are posting and commenting. You feel bad for the Palestinians, then put your money where your mouth is and write a check to your favorite pro-Palestinian charity, but watch where the money goes. Ask the myriad of Arab nations in the middle east what they have done for their Arab, Muslim, Palestinian brothers and sisters over the past 40 or 50 years. If Israel were totally destroyed tomorrow and/or all the Jews pushed into the sea, does anyone really believe that the fate of the "Palestinian" people would improve any time soon? Would Muslim attacks on Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, secular humanists, and anyone else that gets in their way in their goal for a world-wide Caliphate suddenly end, or even diminish? Get real! In the Bible God promised Abraham, then Isaac and then Jacob (later called Israel) that from them he would make a great nation and that "I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse". I wouldn't bet against God or Israel. Even a cursory study of world history shows that Israel and the Jewish people have survived against all odds and all enemies. Where are those enemies and empires today? If you bet on the wrong side, prepare yourself.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

It almost feels

like Revelation is really going to happen.

They will be the one that will activate it

Revelation is happening. And is happening fast. Rapidly..

Mark 13:20

And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

They're trying to ....

bring about another Armageddon so they can get raptured up!

Minnesota Mary


but I think that you might be protecting fallacies.

Who is responsible for entangling one's self in a Chinese Finger Trap?

I know the plan

I don't care what any of you people say. You are clearly being brainwashed by the Muslims. They want to destroy Israel and everything that has to do with God. I know for a fact! So you people can mark me down all you want but it will never change the fact of Israel protecting them selves. You can keep trying but in the end you will keep losing. You people care more about what goes on in Israel than your own damn Country. It is pathetic. Go fly over to the Palestinians and help out if you care so much. It is none of our business yet you "so called" Libertarians think you have a right to dictate what goes on over there. HYPOCRITES! We have our own problems here. Why don't you man up?

Now all of you anti JEW Hitlers can mark me down.

You are the one...

who has been brainwashed. Get yourself educated on the the history of the holy land and read the book, "Against Our Better Judgment" by Alison Weir. Then read Alfred Lilienthal's book, "What Price Israel?" Then read "The Israel Lobby" by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt. Another book to read is "The General's Son" by Miko Peled. Quit listening to FAUX News and all the Neocon talking heads. They are not fair and balanced. Any moron can see that whether they are pro-Israel or pro-Palestinian. To deny that is to be intellectually dishonest.

Your ignorance of the facts, history and the issues surrounding the creation and subsidizing of the State of Israel is appalling!

Minnesota Mary


Ummm I'd estimate a good percentage of Israeli's have no belief in God whatsoever..... Orthodox Jewry is looked down upon.

Found this video next to the above one.

It is going to take some research on validation of the massive amount of history Benjamin Freedman is speaking about. Wow.


This guy makes some good education.


You really surprised me, my friend.

The leaders of the State of Israel have little to nothing to do with God. When the good people of Israel protect themselves from their godless leaders, you will find peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, just as there was before WWII, when they lived in peace together. Who do you think the Jews entrusted the care of their most precious possession, their children, to during those holy days when they were required to be in Temple?

We care "more" about what goes on in Israel than we do in our own country? Seriously? Do you think we complain about our politicians being deep into the pockets of AIPAC because we don't care about our own country? Until the two countries are politically separated from each other, both will continue to be under the control of the same godless leaders.

People here are the most loving, caring people on the planet! No one here is an "anti JEW" or anti any other race, religion or nationality. Please understand that you have to separate Judaism from Zionism. They are far, far, from being the same thing.

You really have a lot to learn to undue the hateful brainwashing to which you've obviously been subjected for far to long. In the meantime, you owe this community an apology. Shame on you!

Maybe I do owe you an apology. This is why I like this site. You guys fill in the blanks I've been looking for. I am awake but not to awake when it comes to this Zionism stuff.

Nothing wrong with Zionist.

Zionist just want to be in Israel and part of Israel. What is wrong with that?

Zionism is the Jewish national movement of rebirth and renewal in the land of Israel - the historical birthplace of the Jewish people. The yearning to return to Zion, the biblical term for both the Land of Israel and Jerusalem, has been the cornerstone of Jewish religious life since the Jewish exile from the land two thousand years ago, and is embedded in Jewish prayer, ritual, literature and culture.

Modern Zionism emerged in the late 19th century in response to the violent persecution of Jews in Eastern Europe, anti-Semitism in Western Europe. Modern Zionism fused the ancient Jewish biblical and historical ties to the ancestral homeland with the modern concept of nationalism into a vision of establishing a modern Jewish state in the land of Israel.

The "father" of modern Zionism, Austrian journalist Theodor Herzl, consolidated various strands of Zionist thought into an organized political movement, advocating for international recognition of a "Jewish state" and encouraging Jewish immigration to build the land.

Today, decades after the actual founding of a Jewish state, Zionism continues to be the guiding nationalist movement of the majority of Jews around the world who believe in, support and identify with the State of Israel. Zionism, the national aspiration of the Jewish people to a homeland, is to the Jewish people what the liberation movements of Africa and Asia have been to their peoples.

History has demonstrated the need to ensure Jewish security through such a homeland. The re-establishment of Jewish independence in Israel, after centuries of struggle to overcome foreign conquest and exile, is a vindication of the fundamental concepts of the equality of nations and of self-determination. To question the Jewish people's right to national existence and freedom is not only to deny to the Jewish people the right accorded to every other people on this globe, but it is also to deny the central precepts of the United Nations.

That's right. Just keep repeating

the lie over and over and over and over. It's a good one! Lot's of decent people have fallen for it and lots of decent people were killed because of it, too.

―Emmet Fox

We all have blanks and most of us do want to learn.

Typed words on a screen can be misunderstood. Perhaps you really don't know how hate filled your words read and perhaps you were expressing (unwarranted) fear of the Muslims (the latest enemy created by Zionists).

Judaism is a religion. Zionism is a godless political aberration that pretends to be tied to Judaism but, it is not. (Actually, Zionism isn't quite godless. Money and power are their gods and they kill innocent people and repeat lies over and over, until people accept the lies as the God's honest truth. Turn off the TV news!) During the closing years of WWII, many good people joined the Zionist cause, believing they were doing something necessary, important and very, very good. They didn't have very many ways of knowing what the real reason was behind that movement. No TV but, radio and mainstream newspapers, and newsreels told them what to think, just like MSM today.

You do know Hamas was another

Zionist invention to counter the peace efforts of Arafat, don't you?

Keep on piling it on, if you feel the need. Just know you aren't convincing anyone here. Your just trying to fuel more hate.

Typical for the cowardist.

Israel responds to rocket attacks, the Palestinian people ought to be wondering why their elected leaders are using civilian faculties as launching pads. I know a lot of this stuff gets ignored or brushed off entirely, but that doesn't make it untrue.

The comparison you made was probably better suited to Iraq; where a US led intervention to remove a genocidal regime escalated to a bloody sectarian civil war. Which is exactly what has happened in every Islamist state that has ever existed. People are not going 'Pretty Crazy' for this pro-Terrorist- a select few are using it as an opportunity to justify and sentiment terrorist war-crimes being committed AGAINST Israel. Don't try to simplify it.

I simply feel that Palestinians pretty much invited this death on themselves -- as many Muslim leaders agree - in installing a group dedicated to antagonizing Israel into defending itself.

This whole thing your taking in is a deception.
