Antisemitism in Ireland - the report

Antisemitism in Ireland – an exclusive report on anti-Jewish hatred

Today I publish a 202-page report on antisemitism in Ireland. It is the result of several years of intense research that involved 1000s of hours of online swimming in extremist sewers. The examples and findings presented in the report should sicken anyone interested in combatting antisemitism. What makes it even worse is the level of ‘antisemitism denial’ coming from the Irish politicians, academics and activists.

When you see what is in the report you will understand that there is no denying this – nor does it have anything to do with ‘criticism of Israel’. Personally I have been down this road before, with in-depth studies of antisemitism in anti-Israel groups in the UK and of course the Labour Party – but what I saw in Ireland – managed to shake even me.

There are almost 200 pages of evidence, and I cannot even begin to do it justice in a single blog. Perhaps it remains possible to give voice to what is inside the report in a single word – and that word is ‘horrific’. The situation is horrific at the political level, horrific at the academic level and horrific at the street level. It is almost impossible to overstate how toxic the situation in Ireland has become.

The evidence is all in the report which can now be downloaded. For those that want the story of ‘antisemitism in Ireland’ in shorthand, here are just a few nuggets:

Politicians in Ireland

Dozens of Politicians in Ireland were found to contribute towards rising antisemitism, and this occurs in a number of ways. The report covers the issue in full detail.

Here is just one example. Some of Ireland’s politicians love to share the most outrageous fake news about Israel.

This is a post about an attack on the trees of Palestinian farmers that was shared by Sean Crowe, a member of the Dail – (the lower house of the Irish legislature). Except it is fake news. The video is actually of a cull of citrus trees in Morocco in 2019, which has been repackaged as anti-Israel propaganda.

Sean Crowe Ireland

Acts such as this, spread hatred on the street. And these politicians do not seem to care about the source of their fake news. The post that Sean Crowe TD shared in order to demonise Israel, was from the FB account of Waleed Al Alami – who is a hard core antisemite and Holocaust denier:

There are lots of examples – and the Crowe shared post is far from the worst. One sitting politician even seems to have liked a post suggesting Hitler ‘may have not been too far wrong‘.

The Irish TD’s don’t hold back – they are at the forefront of the report, and dozens are included. And when it comes to antisemitism – the same old tropes are rolled out over and over again.

This blatant ‘Mossad did it‘ tweet came from Reada Cronin TD. In her world the British electorate didn’t reject Jeremy Corbyn because of his party’s extremism or illegal harrassment of Jews – the British were made to do it by Israeli spies:

Reada Cronin

Academia and campus

Weep for the pro-Israel Jewish student in Ireland. This is an image from the walls of Dublin Trinity campus during their campaign to adopt a boycott against Israel. It reads ‘there were no gas chambers‘:

Trinity Dublin Ireland antisemitism

Pro-Israel students have even been assaulted whilst putting on a ‘kosher bake sale’! Ireland has its anti-Zionist academics, of course. Given the atmosphere in Ireland it should come as no shock to learn that several signed the letter in support of David Miller. The report takes a closer look at some of their unacceptable activity.

On the street in Ireland

The worst cases of antisemitism came from those who turn up to protest against the Jewish state on the streets of Ireland. The people captured in the report are not bystanders – they are the core of anti-Israel activism. They stand behind the street stalls, turn up to hand out leaflets, create the local solidarity groups and shout loudest at the demos.

Take Elizabeth Coleman as an example. A key face of Kildare’s anti-Israel activism:

Here she is bragging that she got the (very anti-Israel) Irish Politician Calre Daly TD to pose questions in the Dail for the Justice Minister at that time – the last elected Jewish political figure in Ireland (before he was hounded out) – Alan Shatter:

And here is Coleman in a different post telling all her friends that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are real – and that the Times only ‘debunked them’ because it was ‘Jewish owned’:

Ireland Coleman 2

And finally, here is Coleman out on the streets of Ireland just a few months ago – smiling with the Palestinian flag. I am sure as she does this she is also pretending it is all about human rights:

One more example. This is an image from an anti-Israel demonstration . The woman on the right is Zoe Lawlor, a key player with the Irish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Academics for Palestine and Gaza Action. Zoe Lawlor never sees antisemitism anywhere. She feels so strongly on the matter than she often writes to the press. The guy to the left with the microphone to is Saed Laham, who the IPSC also know very well:  The image is from an IPSC event in Limerick:

Limerick Ireland - antisemitism

I have no idea what messages Saed Laham was spinning to those listening in Limerick, but this is what he really thinks:

Saed LahamOver time Laham probably understood that calling on people to kill Jews is perhaps a little bit too blatant – so he revised it a little. By 2015 he just wanted to kill the ‘Zionists’:

There are probably people in Ireland that will argue that this is an outrageous comment, but still ‘anti-Zionism’, not ‘antisemitism’. The switch is so easy – just cross out the word ‘Jew’ and replace it with ‘Zionist’. That is the pathetic argument they all hide behind. Laham is far from the only antisemite with whom Zoe Lawlor hangs out  – but that is all detailed in the report.

From Dublin to Galway and down to Waterford this is what I found on Ireland’s streets – everywhere. Hard-core antisemitism wrapped up in a Palestinian flag. You have to read the ‘On the Streets’ section of the report to believe how bad it is.

The blindness of Fatin Al Tamimi

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign is the largest anti-Israel group in Ireland and is led today by Fatin Al Tamimi. She calls herself an anti-racist, yet almost every time she tags someone in a post from a demonstration it turns out that they share rabid antisemitism. It doesn’t happen once or twice, but again and again and again. These are not passers-by, these are people that the Chair of the IPSC knows well enough to name and tag.

Al Tamimi has tagged EL Rayes on countless occasions – this is one example from a demonstration in Dublin:ireland IPSC antisemitismAnd this is some of what Reem B El Rayes has to say:



This is the translation:

‘I repeat and say damn you Hitler you should have finished on all the Jews and brought us comfort.’

The key problem in Ireland is that there is no real fight-back. Many politicians, journalists and celebrities have completely lost their moral compass. You have to be blind not to see the antisemitism that lurks in almost every room.

I provide this last example here because I feel it sums up the entire problem in a single post. It is about a Jewish Minister in Ireland and simply says ‘throw the Jew down the well’ – which given what is in the report seems to be pretty much what Ireland is doing:

Alan Shatter Ireland antisemitism

Tom Coughlan who posted that is not a bystander either. Where the Palestinian flag is raised in Ireland – antisemitism is helping to hold it aloft:

Ireland - Tom Coughlan

And as you will see in the report, this was hardly the worst thing Coughlan posted.

Given the level of antisemitism uncovered by this report (and there are even more examples of antisemitism presented on the pages of the Ireland Israel Alliance website), Ireland should adopt the IHRA definition as soon as possible. It urgently needs to embark on a massive educational drive to even begin to undo the damage.

The full report with the whole horrible story can be downloaded here.

This is all part of ongoing research – on Wikipedia, Anti-Zionism in Academia, and a growing problem with antisemitism and rising radical Islamism. I engage in forensic research, much of it undercover – it is unique, hard-hitting and it goes wherever it needs to. But this research also depends on community support. The results speak for themselves and for seven years I have been exposing hate and creating headlines.

  1. The Irish fought the might of the Britiah Empire for 800 years. Doubt anyone is going to be intimidated by an obscure spiritual leader of a rag tag bunch of fraudsters, perjurers, woman harrassers, struck off solicitors, homophobic ranters and other assorted miscellaneous criminals.

    1. Our Stephen dislikes it when Jews draw attention to prejudice against them and comes here to make demeaning remarks about it. In one of our little chats I asked him whether he also berates members of the black community, the gay community or people with disabilities when they draw attention to biases against them. He said no.

      1. It’s very close to home for our dear Stephen who appears truly rattled and not his usual witty self . He must be missing his Black and Tan , his tipple of choice

        1. OH its Tesco Harv. Which category do you fit into Harv. Oh yes I remember now. Perjurers. You could have been more ubiquitous but I couldn’t think of a category for people that tell folks of colour to ” get out of our country “.

          BTW hows the rickshaw business ?

            1. Care to tell us what happened to your Asda employment and your sudden departure . You weren’t very kind to the store on Facebook for a good while after . We are all ears little man

    2. Does Mr. Collier (or anyone reading this) really believe not one single Palestinian olive tree has been uprooted maliciously? There have been literally hundreds of thousands of such trees destroyed. Even if we can make excuses like “necessary eminent domain” for a huge majority of them, it’s still tens of thousands. I could show you 100 articles documenting separate incidents of this happening right now without the slightest effort. It really speaks volumes this is his #1 example of extreme propaganda – even if that particular video is mislabeled.

      Obvious some of the examples of hateful rhetoric he cites later in the article are disturbing and should be condemned, but the truly disturbing comments are never from actual people in power. It’s all people he found on social media with some vague connection to the person in actual power. He literally condemns someone for liking the Facebook post of someone who said something hateful 11 years ago. I doubt there is a single person reading this who is active on social media who couldn’t be condemned by such incredibly exhaustive standards.

      What I find the most disturbing though is the absolute equivalence made between anti-Semitism and being against the current government of Israel. This sort of “logic” would be laughable for any other country. You object to Slobodan Milošević’s regime? Well, you must hate the Slavs. Didn’t like Idi Amin? Obviously you hate black people. It’s an amazing propaganda coup so many people think this is a reasonable claim.

      Thanks for letting me comment.

      1. You wilfully misrepresent the report. None of the people were highlighted solely on the basis of their activity on social media. The research started on the street – with images of people handing out leaflets, standing behind stalls and arranging demos. Many of them are people that the head of the Irish PSC knows well enough to tag. There is nothing ‘vague’ about this at all. These people RUN the local IPSC branches and provide the energy for the activism in their local towns. There are no random online trolls involved – as the report explicitly makes clear.

        The rest of your post also misrepresents the report. At no point is any equivelance drawn between criticising Israel and antisemitism. That is a straw man people stand behind to defend, well, antisemites and deflect. Just as you seem to be doing with your opening paragraph about Olive trees. I take it this is in reference to the fake news story a TD spread in a story he shared from a raging antisemite. I think that point speaks for itself. TD’s shouldn’t be sharing fake news stories from raging antisemites. That’s the point. I am surprised you seem to think that truth and antisemitism is a trivial issue.

      2. Your analysis is F-grade and you put a tee-ball on a stand for David to hit about 450 feet. Why the fuck wouldn’t he let an asshole like you comment? You are an ASSET to the people you hate.

  2. David . With the exception of a few rancid antisemites , you are talking to a convinced audience on your blog . This in depth report exposing the extent of Irish antisemitism must be read by those who can make a difference . It needs to land on every major MSM desk, Embassy and NGO involved in the field of antiracism . We are all aware of the systemic religion driven antisemitism going back centuries and how it has evolved within Irish society . Now the world should know about it and why the Irish Jewish community is but a fraction compared to previous times. Get it out there especially to Israel . Prolific tourists , there are plenty of other places for Israelis to visit other than that cess pit of Jew hate .

      1. Our Stephen, normally so keen to tell us how not arsed he is to come here every day, is so not arsed with this one that he’s already posted 4 times here and repeated his first contribution TWICE on DC’s twitter page. He really doesn’t like Jews drawing attention to prejudices against them.

          1. I’ll take that as a YES.

            Our Stephen has a real problem with Jews who complain about prejudices against them but has no problem with people of colour, gays or people with disabilities when they draw attention to biases against them. That doesn’t seem very nice.

            1. My action approach to trolls is “know your enemy” with some “but don’t let them have privileges they haven’t earned and don’t deserve” mixed in. I don’t like websites that pretend that all of the people reading their articles have a cult-like group agreement on subjects (Electronic Intifada is a prime example of this, trotting out the same 8 or 9 pro-Pal rabid posters as if they were a representative global or even national sample, and ignoring factual counter-arguments that don’t go along with the crowd) and for a site like David’s it’s genuinely useful to show the stupidity, lies, and sheer toxicity of trolls because that relates to what he is correctly combating. That being said, I would have no problem with any troll’s long, fictional, screaming and sometimes threatening posts being edited by a site owner–that’s akin to letting someone visit your home but taking firm action if they scream obscenities at you or start picking up your stuff and throwing it against the floor. In the end, why would anyone want the trolls banned from this board? They make so many own-goal cases for our side that it’s almost like they have a blinded monomania. And I’m not going to ever try to save them from their huge weaknesses. That’s their damn problem to solve or (more likely) pathetically deny.

    1. How often are Israel Ministry of Tourism posters defaced?

      Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to pray ?

      1. Had a stroll through Highgate Cemetery this morning…

        Was dismayed to see dogshit everywhere….

        But then the Community service chappies turned up with their high viz jackets and ankle tags and cleaned it all up….

        Thanks Loonster….

        Your current contribution to society is much appreciated…


        1. You shouldn’t mention dogshit to any of this board’s trolls–if they’re hungry when they read that, the results will certainly be quite messy 🙂

  3. Native Americans identify strongly with Palestinians as an oppressed people and they share many similarities. Collier no doubt would no doubt slander them as being antisemitic.

    Oh yeah, funny that there’s no mention of Scoffy’s mate Neil Horan, the Irish Zionist was arrested in Germany when cops found out about his plans to stage a Pro-Nazi demonstration (which included a poster he made praising Adolf Hitler).

    1. Wonder why our Brucie’s on about “Palestine” and Zionism rather why someone in Ireland would write that there were no gas chambers in concentration camps or say that Hitler “didn’t kill no fuckin’ Jews”. He said that the two are distinct. Has he changed his mind?

      1. Could you be a little more vague Ian? What’s your point?

        1. Reading and comprehension not your thing Loonster?

          Maybe ask your parole officer to translate for you?

          🙄 😁

          Have a great day picking up dog shit….


  4. Everyone in Ireland who finds the reprehensible actions of apartheid Israel a stain on humanity and expresses it, is automatically labeled as antisemitic by your kind.

    1. How about you post some of those apartheid signs in Israel that are akin to the apartheid signs that existed in South Africa. Like ‘Jews Only’ or ‘Arabs Only’? Oh dear, that’s right, you can’t because there aren’t any, just as there is no apartheid in israel. Empty sloganising doesn’t win the day. Btw, do the Irish find Assad’s Syria, graveyard of half a million dead civilians, ‘reprehensible’, or any of the other myriad genuine human rights abusers? (Israel doesn’t even make it into the top 10, but there is a sad common denominator to all of them.) Being kept at arm’s length is inevitable for those who have been trying to slaughter their neighbours for 73 years, but that’s not apartheid; it’s justified self-defence. Singling out Israel and imposing a double standard on the world’s only Jewish state and only functioning liberal democracy in the ME is classic antisemitism. Can’t wriggle out of that one.

      1. If it looks like an apartheid state, acts like an apartheid state, is run like an apartheid state and even SMELLS like an apartheid state then it IS AN APARTHEID STATE.

        PS: The UN and other world bodies and nations classified Israel as an apartheid state, but because “Erin” says it not, then I guess Erin is right. Or maybe is a delusional Zionist Judeo-Nazi propagandist.

        Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to pray.

          1. Well Avi, where our Brucie is concerned that is an appropriate question. Check out his stuff here and you’ll reach the right conclusion pretty quickly.

        1. “The UN” do you mean countries like Syria, Venezuela, Nigeria, Yemen etc that decide at the human rights council which is an apartheid state lol , countries that don’t even know what human rights are.. can’t stop laughing over your comment! I think Israel should actually stop giving the Arabs equal rights, don’t let them live in the Jewish cities, stop them from reaching higher education etc… if the world thinks it’s an apartheid state so let it really be! Since the Israeli Arabs are equal citizens and thrive in the Israeli society.

          1. Brucie’s just our House Troll, Lee. He’s quite harmless and will never really trouble the scorers. Just a bit of apartheid this or ZioNazi that. The usual trollery.

        1. Arab List are now part of the Israeli government!

          Let me say that again….

          And Arab political party is now part of the current coalition Israeli government!

          🇮🇱 ❤️ 🇮🇱

          In what world can that ever be described as being apartheid?


          Must be time for your meds Loonster?

          🙄 😁 😉 😕 😝

          1. Note to reader: Scoffy (aka “Ken Dobkin”) is trying to insult your intelligence.

            They’re token Arabs.

            Everyone but the most gullable knows that.

            When you can’t argue with facts, you go off the rails and go for the personal attack.

            May HaShem correct your transgressions.

            1. Note to reader…

              When accusing someone of insulting someone else’s intelligence it helps to be able to spell the words you use to do that correctly….



            2. As for “token Arabs”? More than 160k Israeli citizens voted for Arab List which is why they now control 4 pivotal seats in the current Knesset.

              Now then…how many black people got to vote in apartheid South Africa? And how many black mps were there in the South African Parliament under the former apartheid regime?


              Take your time Loonster…

              🙄 😁 😉 😕 😝

    1. I guess that by now you’ll have figured out our Brucie’s game here Erin. Play, don’t play. It’s up to you. Brucie will be Brucie.

      Shabbat shalom from the Jewish State.

      1. It’s the ZIONIST state.

        No such thing as “the Jewish State. ” Many Jews both abhor and don’t recognize Israel as anything that’s connected with them.

        Shabbat shalom from your favourite Rabbi 🙏

        1. Hoping to visit the world’s only Jewish state later this year….Baruch Hashem….


          Will be my fifteenth visit….

          🇮🇱 ❤️ 🇮🇱

          1. No such thing as “Jewish state” (see above).

            1. The days when White Western Gentiles tell us what’s what have long gone. Didn’t Brucie’s lot just try that in Afghanistan?

            2. Keep sticking your fingers in your ears and saying “lalalala” Loonster…


              I’m sure the world’s only Jewish state will cease to exist one day if you keep doing that….?

              🙄 😁 😉 😕 😝

  5. Let’s face it….the Irish as a nation are not exactly the brightest bunch are they?


    The stereotype exists for a reason….


      1. You tell me Bellers…

        You are a white British male and therefore (according to the wokerati) racist “gammon” and the enemy of the whole of mankind….


    1. Replace ‘Irish’ with ‘Jewish’ and you’d never hear the end of it.

      1. As if a real rabbi would ever make a comment like that?


        Nurse will be round with your meds shortly Loonster…


    2. That’s not nice Scoffy.

      What would your Hitler-loving Zionist defrocked Irish priest, Neil Horan, say?

      1. Have your meds worn off already Loonster?


        Have a good weekend picking up dog shit….and don’t upset your parole officer or you may end up eating porridge for a few more years yet….

        1. Picking up dog 💩 = engaging with Zionists such as yourself.

          Still awaiting an answer about your Irish Hitler-loving, Israel-supporting mate Neil.

    1. Sorry CODOH, there’s no room for pedophiles, terrorists, or Holocaust deniers on this blog. And if any pedophiles or terrorists read this before CODOH gets justly kicked off here, I want to extend a mild but genuine apology for lumping either of your groups in with the stool samples from CODOH.

  6. David, the reason I don’t often visit here is because you allow Nazis to post here. This undoes all the great work you are doing.

    1. You’re right leah27z. Too many Zio-Nazis here.

      Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to pray 🙏

            1. Hang on a sec Ken. The UK Islamists and the Irish say it’s about Jews but our Brucie says it’s about Zionists. They really need to sort this out between them. It’s all very confusing.

              1. Have you noticed that Brutes’ wheezy rants, while still matching his standard for violent insanity, have become a hell of a lot shorter since his return? I don’t know if that’s because the reasons for his sabbatical have left him unable to type for more than 30 seconds before he has seizures and shits himself and can’t type again or even think again for hours (not that he expends more than 1 energy on a 1-100 scale on thinking in any case), or if he’s getting the troll-editing treatment he’s earned many times over. I just like that his presence on this site is now what it should be: a pathetic, own-goaling, universally disliked troll who can be here but isn’t allowed to suck up all the oxygen. I like it this way.
