Members of the South Dublin County Council in Ireland decided to start flying a Palestinian flag outside their government offices in order to send a “message of solidarity” for so-called oppressed Palestinians, they said.
Talk about choosing sides.
The council members voted to fly the flag for a full month outside the County Hall in Tallaght.
One question: Do they do the same for the oppressed people of Israel?
South Dublin is set to see the Palestinian flag fly over the County Hall in Tallaght for a month in solidarity with the “oppressed people of Palestine”.
The motion, proposed by Sinn Féin councillor Enda Fanning, passed by majority at yesterday’s South Dublin County Council meeting.
No member of the council voted against the motion.
South Dublin County Council will become the fourth Irish local authority to fly the Palestinian flag, following in the footsteps of Dublin City Council, Galway County Council and Sligo County Council, who all voted to fly the flag in recent months.
Councillor Fanning said that the move sends a “small message of solidarity to the people of Palestine”.
The motion read:
Following the example set by Dublin City Council, this Council will fly the flag of Palestine over County Hall for a month in solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine.
Fanning said: “It is only three short years this week since the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which lasted for seven weeks, began in the summer of 2014.
“I am delighted with [the] vote in solidarity with the people of Palestine. It might seem like a very small gesture but I know from the reaction to similar decisions made by other councils that today’s vote will be applauded across Palestine and elsewhere.”
Well isn’t that special. The council members are basically showing solidarity to murderers, terrorists and those who train their kids that Jews are nothing but target practice, worthless and deserving of killing.
