PROTEST AT DAIL 26th Feb 5pm DEMANDING GOVERNMENT SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL FOR PASSPORT AND ASSASSINATION OUTRAGE

The Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) will hold a protest tomorrow (Friday 26th Feb) at 5pm outside the Dail to demand the government impose sanctions on Israel in response to the outrage where seven falsified Irish passports were used to facilitate the assassins of senior Hamas figure, Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, in Dubai.

 

The IAWM said it was inexplicable that Israel was being treated with kid gloves by both the Irish government and the international community when it had committed an outrage that showed complete contempt for international law, human rights, and the soveignity of Ireland and other states.

 

The IAWM pointed out that if Iran were implicated in such outrages it might well be used as a pretext for military attacks and certainly tougher sanctions, while no action whatsoever was even being discussed in relation to Israel.

Press Release – Feb 22nd 2010

-IAWM SAYS ASSASINATION PASSPORT OUTRAGE FURTHER PROOF THAT ISRAEL IS A ROGUE STATE AND QUESTIONS WHY ISRAEL IS BEING TRETED WITH KID GLOVES.

In a statement, the Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) has said that the almost certain responsibility of Israel for the outrage where seven falsified Irish passports were used to facilitate the assassins of senior Hamas figure, Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, in Dubai, was further proof that Israel is a rogue state that has no respect for international law, human rights or the sovereignity of Ireland and other states.

The IAWM further questioned why Israel was being treated with kid gloves by the international community and the Irish government. The IAWM pointed out that if Iran were implicated in such outrages it might well be used as a pretext for military attacks and certainly tougher sanctions, while no action whatsoever was even being discussed in relation to Israel.  

ASSASINATION PASSPORT OUTRAGE FURTHER PROOF THAT ISRAEL IS A ROGUE STATE

-IAWM SAYS ISRAEL SHOULD BE ISOLATED LIKE APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA

 

In a statement, the Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) has said that the almost certain responsibility of Israel for the outrage where falsified Irish and other passports were used to facilitate the assassins of senior Hamas figure, Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, in Dubai, were further proof that Israel is a rogue state that has no respect for international law or human rights.

 

The IAWM said that, following the horrors inflicted by Israel on the people of Gaza last year and decades where Israel had denied Palestinians the most basic human rights, this latest Israeli action was proof of the need for the international community to isolate and boycott Israel economically and diplomatically.

ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT TO DEMONSTRATE AT BRITISH EMBASSY (FRI 29TH) AS BLAIR GIVES EVIDENCE ON IRAQ

-IAWM ALSO CONDEMNS BROWN'S INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AS ATTEMPT TO RE-BRAND IMMORAL AGHAN WAR.

The Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) will hold a demonstration this Friday January 29th at 5pm outside the British Embassy in Ballsbridge, Dublin. The protest has been organised to coincide with the appearance of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair before the Chilcott inquiry, where he will answer questions about his role in launching the war on Iraq in 2003.

The protest will coincide with a series of protests taking place in Britain at the Chilcott inquiry and on the previous day (Thursday 28th) at the international conference on Afghanistan, hosted by current British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.

The IAWM, like its British counter-part, the Stop the War Coalition, believe any serious inquiry into Mr Blair's role in the Iraq war could only conclude that he told multiple and deliberate lies to justify an aggressive and illegal war.

Similarly, the British and Irish anti-war movements believe that the international conference on Afghanistan being hosted by Gordon Brown, the day before Mr Blair's appearance at the inquiry, is a cynical attempt to re-brand the hugely unpopular war in Afghanistan as the "good war," when it is one equally as immoral as that fought in Iraq.
