Originally posted by Sean_K:It seems you have missed it. Do a bit of research. The SAS has conducted operations into the Republic as well as Northern Ireland with targets for assassination. Of course, your government isn't publicising that too much. Especially since the operations into the Republic of Ireland would be considered acts of war.
There are Arabs that live, work and even vote in Israel. The situations aren't so different, are they? The difference is that the Israelis took the land as they countered attacks made against them, and that were a real threat to the existence of Israel. Can you give the same justification to the taking of the six counties? Or was it just greed?
Originally posted by Man Of Kent: Reprisals? Obviously I have missed something. When have the SAS killed a member of the IRA in cold blood, actually gone looking for that person with the sole intention to kill them - an assassination, you might say?

Originally posted by Diesel:Mac, it is a state of mind and you keep missing it...an armed society is a polite society.

Yes the English invaded Ireland in the 12th Century (recently you'll note), Yes they encouraged the prods to move in. Yes, they will act in defence of their countrymen against terrorism. They will defend ALL the citizens of NI against terrorism - in 1969 the army was sent in to defend the CATHOLICS, not the prods.
Do the Israelis ever defend the Palestinians?
As for the incursions - as an act of war what exactly did the Republic do about it? Or did they support the action even though they may not "publicise" it?

Originally posted by Sean K:There is no such thing as a Palestinian. An invention of the English (like the "Irish" who hasn't a drop of Celt blood).
Originally posted by Sean K:I see, since the Republic didn't do anything except protest to the English government, that makes it alright. So, what would you have them do? Scream for the heads of the SAS murderers? And when the same murderers return to target the Irish leaders?
Originally posted by Sean K:Further, there has never been a Palestinian state governed by Palestinians in history, nor was there ever a Palestinian national movement until after the 1967 Six-Day War, when Israel seized Judea and Samaria.
Originally posted by Sean K:The truth is that the Palestinians expressed very limited interest in the Temple Mount before 1967. Further, Jerusalem has always been a city with a substantial Jewish population, even during the period of Ottoman rule, 1517-1917.
Originally posted by Sean_K:And Israelis are Arabs....
So, they are just wogs to the English anyway..
And Israel did exist as a self-ruled entity prior to 1947 (although it is very many years), or hadn't you heard of Moses or King David?
