...Northern Ireland whose Protestant population made death threats to Northern Ireland international soccer player Lennon because he is Catholic? He quit the team just recently because of this, you know. Take the beam out of your own eye so you can see clearly to take the splinter out of your brothers.

The Irish Catholic and Irish fight for Independence.. and Human Rights..

by Erin Emerson Friday, Oct. 18, 2002 at 4:21 AM
starlypt@alaska.net

Number 1, don't be so quick to place EVERY Irish resistance supporter into 1 category.... !!!! (Besides the fact that the Irish fought a VERY LIMITIMATE fight for independence from British rule for many years...



Here is some information on the CURRENT MOVE

TOWARD INDEPENDENCE that is occuring in Northern Ireland...:

http://www.yaleherald.com/archive/xxviii/1999.12.03/news/p6porter.html

Please do a search for more information, this certainly doesn't express all of the views or very much of the history...



NOTE: PLEASE THINK FIRST BEFORE YOU LABEL ONE GROUP AS VIOLENT...!!! LOOK INTO THE CONTEXT IN WHICH THE PERSON LIVES ....!!! IN MANY CASES (especially Northern Ireland..., chidren shot regularly by the British forces, people forced to live in poverty and not allowed to many basic human rights, people DEFENDING THEIR CHILDREN ...!!

PLEASE THINK FIRST BEFORE ACCUSING ALL PEOPLE OF SUCH THINGS ...!!! IN MANY CASES, IF YOU LIVE IN A COUTNRY WHICH IS EXCERCISING OPPRESSIVE POLICIES, YOU WILL ONLY HEAR ONE SIDE.... or be trained/ into being detached, and NOT REALIZING THAT THE OPPRESSOR = = the Imperialist, colonial regimes..., .... often FIGHTERS are FIGHTING FOR THEIR MERE SURVIVAL AND TO PROTECT THEIR FAMILIES../HOMES...

YOU HAVE NO RIGHT To CONDEMN the oppressed...

Although, I agree that this attack on an innocent Irish Catholic (who make up the largest percentage of ....

is HORRIBLE/ and NOT TO BE CONDONEd...

BUT DON'T attack solidarity among people fighting COLONIAL MILITARY OCCUPATION... AND FIGHTING FOR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, SELF-DETERMINATION , and SELF-RULe/ FREEDOM.

(such as the U.S.'s new campaign against Iraq... , the U.S. OPPRESSIVE involvement in Columbia and MOST South American countries..., and the U.S.'s support (BLIND) support of Israel..., among MANY other examples...)



(The Irish Catholics find themselves in the most dangerous position...., also under British colonial rule...



It is much more complex than that... The Irish have been under English colonial occupation..., treated as undervalued citizens without rights... Young 9 year old rock throwers were systematically shot (murdered ) on the spot by the British forces, for example... They have been fighting the British for many many years. (500 + years.., with many changes...). Have you heard of Bloody Sunday?? (the stories are similar to those perpetrated by the Israeli Occupying forces toward the Palestinians..., bloody... (BUT actually, not NEARLY as bloody as the Israeli occupying forces have been to the Palestinians..., but many instances are eerily similar..

Again, VERY LITTLE compares to the HAInous atrocities of Israel's actions toward the palestinian population..)

NOW, it is finally making a difference. The Irish Catholics are the most discriminated against... , hence the birth of the IRA..., many of whom DID NOT EVER actively attack civilians
