    @Incognito: Russia in Crimea, Turkey in Cyprus, Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh….

    Why is a neutral country like Ireland pinpointing Israel unilaterally while ignoring other conflicts and occupations? And by pinpointing Israel, we play into the hands of Hamas, a designated terrorist organization…

    @Dumb as a Rock Mika: are you trying to suggest that protesting the actions of any state is inherently being anti whatever the major religion is in that state? Or are you simply making a special case for Israel? I don’t need a link to tell me whether or not I’m anti semitic or just don’t agree with the actions of the state of Israel as regards Palestine. Would you also apply the same argument to the many countries (and by default, their citizens) who have voiced their anger and concern over Israeli policy and actions regarding Palestine? Is that much of the planet antisemitic? Be realistic. People can protest against the actions of the state of Israel and not be antisemitic (as many Jewish people living in Israel do).

    @Dumb as a Rock Mika: I think it’s not so simple to compare all these and say if it’s 1, why not the other?? How many unarmed children were killed in the annexation of Crimea? 0. Can’t compare them.

    @Dumb as a Rock Mika! Pinpointing Israel is an easy was for certain political parties to troll for votes. These certain parties were founded by anti Semites.

    @Paul Whitehead: Disagreeing with a murderous government who steal land isn’t anti-semitic, its anti Israeli government. When people call you anti-semitic for calling out teh Israeli government then they know what your doing is just.
