DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 A.M)- The Irish Senate have voted in favor of a bill, which if drafted into legislation, will criminalize the purchase of goods from Israeli Settlements in the West Bank.

Yesterday (11th of July 2018), the Irish Senate voted 25-20 in favor of a bill, which aims to criminalize the purchase of goods produced in occupied territories around the world. The bill was primarily motivated by an initiative to prohibit the purchase of products that come from the Occupied West Bank.

The bill still has to be passed through the Lower House, in order to be drafted into legislation. Despite having more steps ahead before its approval into law, the bill has gone through its toughest hurdle and is expected to become law.

There are currently over 150 illegally established settlements in the West Bank, all in violation of International Law, as outlined in the 4th Geneva Convention.

Irish Senator, Frances Black, who re-introduced the bill, stated that: “It’s time to support the basic human rights of the Palestinian people. It’s time for change.”

The “Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018” will mean for those who violate the new laws legislated, that they could face a 250,000 pound fine and the possibility of up to 13 months imprisonment.

“oh yeaeeeah, eat that Daeshbag” => You seem not to get my point est22longriffle. I’m neither Israeli, nor Jew. All I do is analysing situations at levels you’re not accustomed to. It’s even why my analyses are very valuable, as long as I’m serious since I have an extremely cynical humour… As you’re all Anti-Semitic, it’s a very good reason to confront your racism. Don’t worry : would you be Marine LePen, I’d be pleased to show you pics of my little Aryano-Maghrebine little family just to pi$$ you off 🙂 “a great step from the Irish people having themselves… Read more »

Your posts are all very in line with the teachings of the hasbara handbook, that is a guide on how to try and influence Israels perception in the eyes of posters on sites like this. But in reality the TRUTH does not need defending. 1/ Posts lengthy extraneous off topic rants that are misleading, condescending and patronising. 2/Posts material that is designed to be inflammatory and invoke an emotional response. 3/Constantly tries to defend Israel of any wrongdoing and tries to baffle with bullshit. 4/Resorts to calling people “anti- semites” or “nazis” to try and smear them and cause disruption… Read more »

What about goods from the DPR and LPR? It’s all good to block goods from a Zionist regime stealing land and killing populations, but what about the ones taking back what’s theirs?
