Yep, I recall the British enforcing mass migrations throughout Antrim and Down, coercing hundreds of thousands of dirty catholics into areas that they then continued to bombard with cruise missiles, artillery and air-strikes, using 2000lb bombs on hospitals and filthy catholic churches, sniping children on the streets and carpet-bombing entire areas into the stone-age.
Dark times, and I can't believe we entertained their football team with their foriegn sport.

England wasn't engaged in active genocide at the time, and I wouldn't exactly say they were "welcomed". Back onto Netanyahu's lap now like a good dog Thumbs Up
We're decent enough..

We played China and Yugoslavia in the past. Where were you then? We didn't show any sympathy or respect to the victims of Loughinisland during USA 94, so why would we be concerned about what is happening in Israel.

If you truly believe that statement you are either psychopathic or mentally deficient, either way there's little point engaging with you Dead

Your reply just emphases my point that few people in the south of Ireland really cared what was happening up north. But now everyone wants to jump on the Palestine bandwagon. It's fashionable for lefty's to kick Israel now. Most of them are just people with too much time on their hands who couldn't find Palestine on a map. I.e. people on football forums. .

Just stop man, you're f*cking embarrassing yourself. Those soft lefties are the real problem alright, getting would up about 10,000+ children getting blown to pieces in the last 4 months. Honestly one of the most distasteful posts ever made on this forum.

Youve been reading too much propaganda. None of you acknowledge that Hamas are a huge part of the problem. The shinners even invite people from Hamas to their conferences

We shouldn't have been playing them before under an apartheid regime. 

The fact that they're even still allowed to compete under UEFA and FIFA while committing the worst genocide against civilians this century is astonishing and troubling. 

Ireland boycotting anything to do with Israel is a very simple and easy decision, but it shouldn't be ours to make considering the Russian precedent.
