Dublin says NO Protest against Austerity in Ireland

Dublin: 27.07.2014

By Thomás Aengus O Cléirigh

Today again for the 70th or so week a small band of citizens from DUBLIN SAYS NO to IMPOSED AUSTERITY had their weekly protest march down O Connell Street: I was fortunate to be able to accompany them. This group are committed to highlighting suffering of the ordinary people and people who cannot gain access to the nations controlled media; the removal of social services, the removal of medicial cards and the evictions not to mention the imposed new taxes on life giving water to name but a few of the cruel austerity measures and on top of all this they also demonstrated their support for the besieged people of Gaza.

What a pity the Sunday Shoppers on O Connell did not share our views and join us!

WE got a lot of two legged sheep here in Ireland! What will it take to wake up the people of Ireland???

Thankfully the peoples of the world are no longer swallowing the tripe conning from the controlled Media

Thankfully the peoples of the world are no longer swallowing the tripe conning from the controlled Media outlets and the government controlled propaganda machines! To-day again awakened citizens of Ireland came out on to the streets of Dublin and showed the gutless politicians who betrayed again the wishes of the vast majority of the people of Ireland to hold the criminals in Israel to account for the murder of citizens of Gaza! The gutless gombeen politicians, who supposedly represent the people of Ireland, refused to condemn the criminal actions of a bunch of raving lunatics in the Israeli Government! Not in my name I do not accept that these puppets are representing me or my family and I demand the apprehension of the war criminals reasonable for the murder of the innocent people of Gaza! I declare that the Irish government are complicit in these murders and that they should also be brought to the international court of Justice! They are equally guilty of Murder!

The world knows that Israel is committing genocide!

The world knows that Israel is committing genocide! The ordinary people are waking up and the governments around the European countries are doing everything to cover up the murders. Our own gutless parasitic Irish government are no better in face they are again showing that they are a bunch of spineless parasites and supporters of this Israeli Murder of innocence, children attending school blown to bits and hospitals been bombed by aircraft qualify as war crimes anywhere else in the world!

Israel has over the last 70 years played the victim card and the world has given them the benefit of the doubt because of the holocaust, but things have changed! Israel has now become the oppressor and is committing the same crimes, committed on the Jews during the 2nd world war! Yes I am talking about MURDER! This Jewish state has created the world’s largest modern Ghetto. After the Berlin wall, the world expected it would never again see such a wall but Israel has built an even bigger wall and the governments and the UN remain silent It has also  built the largest Getto !

Why We Need A European Solidarity Union

by Michael Roth

Europe is heaven on earth, the promised land, as soon as you look at it from the outside. [...] Europe appears in a different light, but always as paradise, as a dream of mankind, as a stronghold of peace, prosperity and civilisation.

Here, Wim Wenders impressively describes Europe’s promise of hope. He is right, and we are made especially aware of it once more when we look around our neighbourhood. Refugees from beyond the Mediterranean Sea are putting their lives at risk because they hope to be safe from persecution and enjoy a life in dignity in Europe.

Yet, from the inside things are not looking so good at present: solidarity in the EU seems damaged, the sense of justice is shaken and social cohesion is too weak. Many citizens are asking themselves: is Europe going to lose its sense of solidarity and social justice in the face of the crisis?

We have allowed the welfare state to be cut back in several member states – especially at the expense of the young, the unemployed, the sick and the socially vulnerable.

We have to counter this impression. Social cohesion and solidarity were always Europe’s trademark and guarantors of the EU’s credibility – both within the Community and in the outside world. However, neither can be taken for granted. They have to be lived and cultivated constantly. We have to be self-critical and admit that while we strove in the light of the crisis to regain our credibility by returning to sound finances, we have allowed the welfare state to be cut back in several member states – especially at the expense of the young, the unemployed, the sick and the socially vulnerable.

There is no doubt that we need a competitive Europe to perform well in a globalised world and to foster our wealth and prosperity. We are bound by our excellence in Europe. This excellence, which consists of economic strength and a certain level of social security, brings with it a responsibility. If principles of the social market economy are thrown overboard, sustainable economic success will not be possible………………………….

It may not be a technical house price bubble but it sure looks like one..


More sheep chasing phantom money and dreams !

Originally posted on Brian M. Lucey:

so…. another CSO release of house price statistics. Recall that a bubble is where prices deviate fundamentally from their warranted levels. We know that there are massive supply constraints in the dublin region so we should see house price appreciation. But this much?  The largest ever year on year percentage rise ? We are back to the madness it seems.

Here is my old friend SupADF….  Remember  when Mr SADf crosses Mr 95% from below, its BUBBLETIME. So technically not a bubble but give it time… these figures should be a very large bucket of cold water in the face of government insouciance about back to the future…

Anonymous Takes Down 1,000 Israeli Government and Business Websites

Anonymous Heart Merged With Gaza message

Anonymous has launched a new cyberattack campaign against Israel called #OpSaveGaza, taking down over thousand Israeli websitesAnonHQ

Hacker collective Anonymous has announced that it has taken down over a thousand of crucial Israeli websites in a huge new coordinated cyber-attack called ‪#‎OpSaveGaza‬ on 11 July and 17 July, in support of the people of Palestine.

Some of the websites, such as the Tel Aviv Police Department’s online presence, are still offline two days after the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and numerous Israeli government homepages have been replaced by graphics, slogans, and auto-playing audio files made by AnonGhost, the team of hackers who coordinated the attack.

The official Israeli government jobs website has had its homepage replaced by a graphic titled “Akincilar”, which is Turkish for the Ottoman Empire’s troops.

A message written in English and Turkish – presumably by Turkish hackers – and accompanied by pictures of Palestinians suffering says: “The Jerusalem cause is Muslims’ fight of honour” and says that people who fight for Palestine are “on the side of Allah”.

Another Israeli government website now bears an AnonGhost graphic and lists the usernames of 38 hackers.

An audio file that auto-plays when the page loads plays music and a synthesized newsreader clip, together with a message beseeching human rights organisations, hackers and activists to attack Israeli websites to become the “cyber shield, the voice for the forgotten people”.

Many of the websites have since been restored.

The hackers have also leaked lists of Israeli government email addresses obtained by hacking websites of the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Culture and Sport, the Ministry of Housing and Construction and much more.

Israeli websites belonging to restaurants, local businesses, associations, societies, academic foundations and even a symphony orchestra were also attacked, as well as a subdomain belonging to MSN Israel.

A message on the main Pastebin page and some of the hacked websites reads: “The act of launching rockets from Gaza sector to Israhell is an acceptable and normal reaction against those pigs, it’s called Resistance and not terrorism.

“Israhell never existed its only Palestine, it’s our home. If you are a Hacker, Activist, a Human Right Organisation then hack israel websites and expose to the world their crimes, show to the world how much blood is on their hands, blood of innocent children and women.”

Anonymous has previously run another campaign in April targeting Israeli websites, although on a smaller scale. About 500 websites went offline during the OpIsrael campaign and the hackers released the phone numbers and email addresses of some Israeli officials.


Letter from Gaza by a Norwegian doctor

Mads Frederick Gilbert

Dearest friends,

The last night was extreme. The “ground invasion” of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying – all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent. The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza’s hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment all in Shifa for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS!

Now, once more treated like animals by “the most moral army in the world” (sic!). My respect for the wounded is endless, in their contained determination in the midst of pain, agony and shock; my admiration for the staff and volunteers is endless, my closeness to the Palestinian “sumud” gives me strength, although in glimpses I just want to scream, hold someone tight, cry, smell the skin and hair of the warm child, covered in blood, protect ourselves in an endless embrace – but we cannot afford that, nor can they. Ashy grey faces – Oh NO! Not one more load of tens of maimed and bleeding, we still have lakes of blood on the floor in the ER, piles of dripping, blood-soaked bandages to clear out – oh – the cleaners, everywhere, swiftly shovelling the blood and discarded tissues, hair, clothes,cannulas – the leftovers from death – all taken away … to be prepared again, to be repeated all over.

More then 100 cases came to Shifa in the last 24 hrs. Enough for a large well trained hospital with everything, but here – almost nothing: no electricity, water, disposables, drugs, OR-tables, instruments, monitors – all rusted and as if taken from museums of yesterday’s hospitals. But they do not complain, these heroes. They get on with it, like warriors, head on, enormously resolute. And as I write these words to you, alone, on a bed, my tears flow, the warm but useless tears of pain and grief, of anger and fear.

This is not happening! An then, just now, the orchestra of the Israeli war-machine starts its gruesome symphony again, just now: salvos of artillery from the navy boats just down on the shores, the roaring F16, the sickening drones (Arabic ‘Zennanis’, the hummers), and the cluttering Apaches. So much made in and paid by the US. Mr. Obama – do you have a heart? I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa. Disguised as a cleaner, maybe. I am convinced, 100%, it would change history. Nobody with a heart AND power could ever walk away from a night in Shifa without being determined to end the slaughter of the Palestinian people. But the heartless and merciless have done their calculations and planned another “dahyia” onslaught on Gaza.

The rivers of blood will keep running the coming night. I can hear they have tuned their instruments of death. Please. Do what you can. This, THIS cannot continue. Mads Gilbert MD PhD Professor and Clinical Head Clinic of Emergency Medicine University Hospital of North Norway – See more at:
