    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Irish Foreign Minister, Eamon Gilmore, on Friday visited the Gaza Strip entering the coastal enclave through the Beit Hanoun crossing to the north of the Strip as part of a three day visit to occupied Palestine.

    Mr Gilmore said he welcomed the opportunity to see for himself the impact the Israeli blockade policy continues to have on the ordinary people and economy of the territory.

    He renewed calls for an end to the blockade which his government opposed because of its huge effect on ordinary people according AFP.

    • His own country is in a financial mess, but the idiot is touring arabs.
    • Since noone lost any land there's no occupation, of course.
    Jameson talking, no doubt.

    There would be no blockade if there were no imports of weapons and missiles shot in Israel's cities.

    It's that simple , Israel whats peace , and if the Palestinians would have wanted peace as well there would be peace.

    Most Europeans dont believe that.

    They believe that the zionists have robbed Palestinian land and continue to do so and have killed many times more Palestinians than the other way around. :evil:

    True enough, Europeans continue to show a high tolerance for the murder of Jews and quick impatience for and condemnation of any Israeli efforts to defend themselves against terrorism. Fortunately most Americans have dismissed European anti Jewish biases as garbage.

    I don't know about most Europeans but i know that what you have said is to about many Europeans.
    I always wonder thought Europeans are so big on Human Rights ,it is a know fact that Arabs in Arab countries Kill and torture other Arabs , but for some reason it's not important enough human rights violations.
    May Palestinians are killed by the Hammas , and that doesn't bother anyone...
    But when Israel kills Palestinians - RED ALERT RED ALERT - human rights violation.
    I just don't get it.

    "more then 130 Palestinians were killed by Palestinians forces"

    "Little three year-old boy Salam Balusha and his two brothers were murdered in their car by Prime Minister Haniyeh's troops. "

    "The killing of Bahaa Balusha's three sons in late 2006 sparked the street fighting between Fatah and Hamas gunmen that culminated in Hamas' seizure of Gaza "
