She loves Catholics and Protestants...but hates Jews.....

And, she's a nobel laureate....proves you don't have to be that smart, I guess.
Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire says the United Nations should suspend or revoke Israel's membership.

Maguire says Israel should be punished for ignoring a series of United Nations resolutions over the years. Maguire won the 1976 peace prize for her work with Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland.

She is visiting the Palestinian territories to protest Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip. Israel virtually sealed off the territories after the Hamas took over there in 2007. The closure tightened two weeks ago in response to Hamas rocket fire on Israeli border communities.

Maguire told a news conference Thursday that it's time for the international community to take action against Israel.

Disagreeing with Israeli policy is not the same thing as being an anti-semite. Very disturbing post.

Fred.. I have to agree to some extent with the first poster.. the situation in Israel is complicated, and I agree that it is somewhat fashionable for liberals lately to criticize Israel and defend the Palestinians.. but, to say someone "hates Jews" because they question their actions in Gaza is maybe a little harsh.

That being said - critics should perhaps live with rockets being fired at their homes from across a border before they get too cozy with Hamas..

Sorry, she's singling out Israel.....and that to me is anti-semitic. Had she issued a statement that 6 countries should punished, then fine....but only Israel.

It would be nice to see her go to Tibet and demand that the UN revoke China's membership. Or...she could pop in to Burma or Sudan and demand human rights for all citizens.

but her twisted mind only Israel is singled out as a violator of human rights. Thus, she's anti-semitic.

I love it when people say things like, "Very disturbing post."

The implication is that they are sailing along happy and undisturbed and then you upset them...and the further implication is that somehow you have done something wrong because they are "disturbed." And the deeper implication is that somehow you owe it to them to return them to their previously comfortable state.

Be disturbed. Go right head. Who give a s**t?

Maguire has simply jumped on a huge bandwagon of anti-Semitic sentiment in the world, by singling out Israel for "punsihment" - basically for daring to defend itself from a bunch of Islamic murderous thugs.

Like all the other anti-israel hysterics, she makes no mention of, and does not appear to care abiout, the massacre in Darfur, the limb amputations and increasing Islamisation and savagery in Africa (esp. Somalia and Nigeria), the anti-Christian murders and persecution by Islamic Hams in Gaza itself, slavery (sstill!() in Saudi Arabia, etc etc etc.

She, like all the others, is a fraud and a coward, which is what the word "peace" has come to signify in the hands of these tiny tiny people.
