    Palestine

    Can somebody explain the link with Palestine and the Republicans in Nord Iron. I've seen all the murals, flags and the "Penta-gone" graffiti from the September 12th. I have this rough outline but can someone confirm what the link is.
    Thanks.

    I think it’s to do with the 6 counties being occupied by a foreign country and Palestine also being occupied just like the links with the Basque region

    yeah thats about it. There's also been links between the Sinn Féin, Herri Batasuna in the Basque Country and the PLO, and lots of rumours (probably true) of collaboration between the armed movements in those struggles.

    Rangers fans in the north support Israel because they are both settlers. BTW it's not just in the north or Park Head where you will Palestine flags you can often see them at eL grounds too.

The appearance of Palestinian symolism at football games may be more of an anti-semitic matter though, particularly when it comes to Ajax. Another famous one is the 'hissing gas' noise directed at Ajax and Spurs fans.

    Rangers have many Jewish connections so hard to know what exactly motivates Celtic fans more. I understand that Rangers fans have taken to displaying Stars of David. It's a strange city alright!!
    I heard Rangers do have actual Jewish connections at board level (read it somewhere recently)- dunno how true it is, but it would explain something. I couldn't really care less about religion, but as far as I'm concerned Israel should not exist and should be boycotted by any right-thinking human-being. Highly ironic that the terrible crimes of World War 2 should lead to the hunted becoming the hunters, or in this case the murdered becoming the murderers.

    Does anyone know if the Palestinian flag is still above the Now Entering Free Derry sign where the tri-colour used to be?
    Do you think that was a good move or slightly extreme>?

    Nah, that's gone a while, last time I checked there was a tri-colour there. Good move though, nothing wrong with it at all. Shows solidarity with the Palestinians

    Quite significant ones.

    The hissing is a disgrace alright - far worse than any booing at Lansdown, and there are enough of us who hate that.

    I haven't heard that Liverpool one. Sorry if I'm just being dense, but what's it refer to?

    The Kirsk submarine which sank a few years back. Dunno what that has to do with Man City especially though.

    Conor74. All states are "artificial". What is now Israel and Palestine was, in the late nineteenth century and while part of the Ottoman Empire, generally agreed to have lacked a distinct single political identity. It also had significant Jewish and Christian populations, though Muslims were clearly the most numerous of the three groups.

    The pressure from Jewish lobbies abroad was clearly a major factor in the Balfour Declaration and the formation of the state of Israel in 1948 (though its borders then were determined by the course of the war in that year). But the Palestine mandate was itself artificial. As was its contemporary, Iraq, which was made up of three distinct Ottoman provinces. Many argue this has combined both to its instability since and thus Saddam's ability to impose his regime for so long.

    Eanna. Israel does exist. If it didn't, who knows where and what its population would do/ have done? Could an independent Palestine have survived with such a hostile population, at times in the last century a large majority? Who would have taken the refugees otherwise? To deny this existence is unrealistic. It's a bit like saying, after WW2, that Germany should be dismembered to prevent any repetition. But you can't simply ethnically cleanse 80 million people or stop them speaking their own language. Hard though Uncle Joe Stalin tried.

    Israel also has 'WMD' as the Americans say. It has also killed thousands of Palestinians in refugee camps and is given Millions of dollars each year by the U.S. to fund this form of terrorism yet the U.S. invades Iraq because it breaks some thing like 14 resolutions BTW I'm am not defending Saddam and i think its good that he is gone

    Israel is arguably my least favourite thing. They've no more business playing in UEFA than Mongolia (which at least borders a European country). On a more serious level though the whole country seems sick to the core to me. I remember when Denmark played them in a friendly in Copenhagen a while back and about 50% of those who'd bought tickets stayed outside the ground to protest at the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the media (with no small number of influential jews at the helm) tried to slam those who stayed outside... Madness!
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    Yeah, sounds like your standard American/Jewish attitude. If you don't criticise Palestinian martyr-bombers you're a terrorist, but if you criticise Israeli state terrorism on civilians, you're an anti-semite and a nazi, and a holocaust denier. Hitler would be fcukin proud of them

    The mainly Jewish owned ENIC corporation have shares in both Rangers and Spurs. But don't Loyalist Rangers fans have connections with the BNP and the Ku Klux Klan. But the Zionist terror group the Stern Gang had links with Nazis during WWII. So being pro-Israel and pro-Nazi isn't that unusual.

    Nobody say the key phrase "even-handed" or there'll be war!

    Seriously, keep this thread polite and factual please.
