A hotel earmarked to 70 house asylum seekers in Ireland has gone up in flames. The fire at the Ross Lake House Hotel in Galway comes after protestors mounted a blockade at the entrance in protest at the Irish Government's plans to house migrants at the 19th Century Georgian hotel.


  How terrible  ::)   ;)

I'm sorry that it's a 19thc hotel,  there must really be a lot of resentment,  the Irish government and indeed our government must get their heads round this,
they can't seem to find a way out,  denounce Schengen?  If international law cannot control Israel and the like,  then we should insist on not being forced to
allow uncontrolled immigration,  each country must have autonomy on this.


The position this law is putting countries in is impractical and really an imposition.

Israel risks fuelling the conflict in Gaza for another 50 years with its tactics, former Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has warned.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph[/size], the senior Conservative MP said Israel risked undermining the legal basis for its actions in the territory.

"If [Benjamin Netanyahu] thinks a killing rage will rectify matters, then he is very wrong," he said.

Israel insists military pressure is needed for victory.

The intervention by Mr Wallace, who was defence secretary under three prime ministers until August, comes amid growing international pressure over the scale of civilian casualties.

Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron has called for a "sustainable ceasefire", and warned "too many civilians have been killed" in a joint article with his German counterpart.

That’s a bit like telling the allies to stop bombing Germany because there are too many casualties ,

The vast majority of Palestinians support Hamas’ Oct. 7 massacre and do not think the terror group has committed war crimes during its ongoing war with the Jewish state, according to a new poll.
The Palestinian Centre for Policy and Survey Research found in its latest public opinion poll of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank that a striking 72 percent of respondents said Hamas made a “correct” decision to launch its onslaught against Israel.
During the invasion, Hamas terrorists murdered 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and kidnapped 240 others as hostages, taking them back to Gaza. Hamas’ brutality during the pogrom — which included documented cases of rampant rape and other sexual violence, torture, and beheadings — shocked the world.
Despite the gruesome violence, however, only 10 percent of Palestinians think that Hamas has committed war crimes during the current war, according to the poll. When asked if the terror group, which rules Gaza, was guilty of atrocities “such as the killing of women and children in their homes,” just 16 percent of respondents in Gaza and 1 percent in the West Bank said yes.Just think: only 1% of Palestinians in the West Bank think that Hamas’ murders of women and children in their homes constituted a “war crime.” Curiously, in the Strip itself 16% of the residents were willing to describe those murders as a “war crime” — no doubt because of their own anger at Hamas for its corruption, mismanagement and, especially, for bringing down the wrath of the IDF on Gaza.

Aid agencies voice frustration as UN's Gaza vote.


 


Imogen Foulkes] Reporting from Geneva.

Ahead of today's UN Security Council vote on a ceasefire in Gaza, aid agencies in Geneva once again voiced their anger and frustration at the continued suffering of civilians, in particular of children.
James Elder of Unicef said that "not even lip service" had been paid to requirements, under international law, to safeguard medical facilities, food and water.
"Truly I am furious," he told journalists in Geneva, adding that he feared the Christmas period could bring "more savage attacks".
Margaret Harris of the World Health Organization (WHO) said "it is beyond belief that the world is allowing this to continue, it is unconscionable".
The WHO has said barely a third of hospitals in Gaza are still functioning, and those only on a minimal basis.
Harris said her colleagues in Gaza had run out of "words to describe the horror" they were witnessing.
The bluntness of the aid agencies reflects their growing despair at the failure of the international community, and the UN Security Council, to resolve this and other conflicts, in which the most vulnerable - children, the elderly, people with disabilities - pay the highest price.

A court has ruled that Donald Trump cannot run for president in Colorado because of his actions ahead of the January 6 riot. So what does this mean for the general election?

A majority of justices on Colorado's top court said Mr Trump was ineligible as a candidate in the state's primary contest, because of a little-known section of the US Constitution which disqualifies people who engage in insurrection.

Mr Trump has said he will appeal to the US Supreme Court to overturn the decision, setting up a court battle that could reshape the 2024 race.

The former president is favourite to become the Republican pick in November's election, where he is expected to face Democratic President Joe Biden.
