When Irish eyes are bleeding

A few posts back I wrote about the latest gift from the Dark Continent, the Ebola virus. There had been a fear that this would spread to Western countries, what with our vibrant local African communities and their penchant for bush meat and so on. And indeed this terrible outcome seemed to have occurred, with patients from the affected areas arriving in the West and ending up dead in isolation units. We’ve even had a case in Donegal, where a man recently returned from Sierra Leone succumbed to the dreaded symptoms.

However you can imagine the relief when it was revealed that the cause of death was not the Ebola virus, rather the Not-Ebola virus. Same thing seems to be happening all over the world so maybe we don’t have anything to worry about.

Palestinian Resistance Rockets onto Zionist SettlementsAfter more than 50 days of its aggression against Gaza, the Zionist entity faces a case of economic paralysis as well as psychological, moral and social collapse.

The Israeli media outlets displayed clearly the cases of panic and tension which the settlers across all the Zionist colonies suffer from, what led the tranquilizers to run out from the pharmacies.
