Clare Daly and Mick Wallace may say they have criticised Assad in Syria, Wallace did after all say in the Dail he is 'far from an exemplary democratic leader'!

They have also done a great deal that acts as a support to the genocidal Assad regime
1. Daly & Wallace organised for known pro Assad propagandist & associate of Assad family Peter Ford to hold a meeting in Dublin. Ford was outed at that meeting as working for Assad by Vincent Brown.
2. Daly & Wallace call for lifting of all EU sanctions ‘against Syria’. Most sanctions are vs named individuals for their role in Assad regime war crimes. Sanctions are only peaceful weapon against these mass murderers (inc Asma al Assad, daughter of Peter Ford’s friend)

Today is @UNISPAL UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The Palestinian people are currently facing an unprecedented assault, on their cause and their collective rights to self-determination, liberation, and return.

#PalestineDay
This assault – dubbed ‘the New Nakba’ – comes under the guise of a ‘peace plan’ cooked up by Trump and his advisors, with help from Israel/Netanyahu and the Saudis/MBS. After many (many) delays, it looks like the plan will be announced in early 2019.
But their ‘Deal of the Century’ (or the 'Ultimate Deal') is already underway: dismantling @UNRWA, eliminating the status of refugees for good; making Jerusalem the capital of Israel, facilitating mass expulsions of Palestinians in Israel ...
