Another Slugger live report on the Apprentice Boys marches…

Earlier this month we pulled together a team of citizen journalists to report on the events of the Orange demonstrations in Belfast and at various sites across Northern Ireland. Now we are considering doing one for the Apprentice Boys of Derry celebrations, which falls on Saturday 8th August this year… Not sure what format it will take yet, but if you are about and happy to come along (possibly for the first time) and to watch and/or chat to ordinary folk about the impacts it has on the cultural and commercial life of the city, {encode=”mick.fealty@gmail.com” title=”drop me a line”}… And we’ll do our best to pull together something fun (and useful) for the day itself…

    ‘that’s more apt than your remark about settlers.’

    What? The current Israel was established by settlers/colonists. Are you saying this is false?

    ‘many of my Palestinian friends who are as white as, say… Martin McGuinness.’

    that I’d lov to see, esp if they have his krusty the clown haircut.

    ‘You’ve corrected your gloss, your re-writing is/was that Jesus was a Palestinian.’

    Incorrect, nowhere did I say that. I suggest you re-read. What I said was the palestinians would be genetically closer to the palestinians than the ashkenazi jews who established the current Israeli state 61 years ago.

    ‘A quick read of the New Testament should straighten that out for you if my word isn’t good enough.’

    Hang on i thought you said…

    ‘Forget religion Stones’

    Stones read your first post, where you say “the original Palestinian Jesus”, which is what started all this. Why reduce Israelis to Ashkenazim who showed up 61 years ago(?) as settlers. Your reductionism is only part of your lack of knowledge, or perhaps the reason for the many errors in your posts. Read a book will ya, if you’re going to bring up Caananites – as you did – you know that it didn’t start then, and your knowledge of Israeli Jews seems as thin as your knowledge of Palestinians, whom you think don’t include any whites (some weird prejudice there?) Enough already! Ben

    Ehh Ben, I suggest you go back and re-read, because that wasn’t me…. lmao.

    ‘Why reduce Israelis to Ashkenazim who showed up 61 years ago(?) as settlers.’

    Why do you deny the that the jews who settled in palestine and came from Russia, Europe or America were settlers? You are aware they were not indigenous to palestine?

    ‘Your reductionism is only part of your lack of knowledge, or perhaps the reason for the many errors in your posts.’

    Ben its blatantly obvious that its you who has posted several errors. Attributing something to me which i did not write and refusing to view settlers as settlers.

    ‘ Read a book will ya’

    Read many on the issue thanks. I can give you some recommendations if you like?

    ‘Enough already’

    It will be enough if you desist from inaccuracies.
