Whist Ireland’s President Higgins waffled on at length about the least fortunate in global society and how Ireland was playing its part to assist those disenfranchised, like the political coward he is, he never alluded to Ireland’s behaviour which has been the cause of much human misery. The Republic of Ireland has for decades hidden its dark past about domestic child abuse within State and quasi-Irish State institutions. The Church, church schools, orphanages, hospitals, work-houses, and even the Irish Boy Scouts organisations have a history of incest and grotesque child sexual abuse by those in authority. To this day, government inertia and cover up has failed to give the numerous victims justice nor compensation and allowed the perpetrators to escape justice.Read more

I’d like to start by recalling Lt. Hiroo Onoda of the Imperial Japanese Army.
Lt. Onoda was, in 1974, convinced to surrender.
He was living on an island in the Philippines, and for 29 years, he had very seriously been engaging in war.
He’d been killing people, maiming them, and stealing.
Finally, he was convinced, when his commanding officer came to the island, that he should lay down arms, that the war was over and that Japanese had lost.
I would suggest to you that in 1993, on the White House lawn, Yasser Arafat gave up the conflict with Israel and recognized Israel’s right “to exist in peace and security.”
Of course, he didn’t mean it, and it wasn’t accepted by most Palestinians.
Still, the Palestinians gave up those many years ago, making them now a larger version of Hiroo Onoda.Read more
