Comment #7342662 by Geoff Dolan

To Israel apologists posting here:

Yeah, do you really believe your own nonsense and drivel at this stage?

These settlements are built on land expropriated from Palestinian farmers. ‘Expropriated’ is a fancy word that means ‘stolen’ by the way.

These Jewish-only settlements have olive trees planted in them as decorative additions, olive trees uprooted from Palestinian groves, olive trees tended and cared for over generations.

So that is why politicians here have voted to boycott these racist, illegal settlements. Because unlike you lot of sociopaths with your drivel about “Area C” or “left-wing media” or other silage, these politicians have actual empathy and understanding.

Move to America. You types do not belong here

The Embassy of Israel said the boycott will not facilitate Ireland’s role or influence in the Middle East.

    @Geoff Dolan: Lol!

    I know why you didn’t post directly because you wouldn’t know what to argue.

    The settlements are not Jewish only, that shows your ignorance, over 50,000 Palestinians live in area c which is where all of the settlements are.

    Whether you like it or not Arabs are selling land to Israelis at an incredible rate. The property prices are through the roof and an Arab can easily retire on the back of them. Why would people be paying millions for houses if they can just take them as you claim? Its because you’re talking rubbish, they aren’t taking houses or land as they wish, almost all of it is legally sold. Land which is legally sold under international law is not a settlement.

    @Judean: Isreal is a racist murdering state that has grabbed lands from Palestinians for many decades, I have no bother with Isreal having the right to exist but not at the expense of the Palestinian people, who’s rights and lands are being robbed day in and out who are being murdered by its occupiers, many comments on this suggests the left are pushing the anti Isreal bandwagon but that is so far from the truth, it’s people from all walks of political values can see the crimes and the wrongs created day in and out by this isreali regime, I support this legislation and it’s a good thing, the world and the people of the world will stop this insanity by a brutal isreali regime.

    @Tom Ryan: if Israel hadn’t withdrawn from Gaza you might have half a point.

    @Judean:
    Do a bit of research; “voluntary sales” are not voluntary, nor do Palestinians generally profit off the taking of their land. Rather, they’re given no option, run off their homes, & paid far less, if anything, than the worth of their generational homes.(the poor souls stuck in the Israeli settlement are not treated as equals, not by a long shot).
    Two states & a return of land is the only path to justice & peace.

    @Pamela Sue: If you had a clue about the history of the land you would know it was arid, barren, rockey, marshy, full of disese, uninhabitable and uninhabited until the Jews started to irrigate and farm it, the Jews did’nt take the land, it was theirs, the arabs took it from them. Jews from Europe and the US purchased land from nomad owners who didn’t even live there in the 1800s and worked the land. Under the British mandate and the balfore decleration, it was given back to them, and they made the desert bloom, if you have ever been there, you would see that where the Jews live is plush and green, the land is alive, where the arabs live is filthy, arad and still desert, the palestinians are a lazy people, they don’t care for the land, they don’t till it to the most part, nor take care of it, they just want to live off hand outs from the rest of the world, their culture dictated the way of life, not Israel, thats a fact, I’ve seen it first hand many times. If Israel did give this land up (their land) it would be back to the way it was 100 years ago under the arabs, they don’t care about the land, they care about the jews being on what they class as muslim land.
