1. Limerick boycott 1904: The economic boycott of the Jewish community lasted over two years.
2. 3 months after Hitler’s rise to power, the head of the Irish mission in Berlin, Leo McCauley, noted a rise in inquiries about immigration to Ireland from German Jews and Jews of Polish nationality.
3. “As far as possible the legation has discouraged such persons from going to Ireland”, he wrote to Dublin.
In a revealing aside, McCauley added that Jewish refugees had “to some extent . . . brought the trouble [on] themselves”.
12. Irish sudden discovery of compassion for refugees:
14. Mere Coincidence?
15. Need a reminder what terror at an all-time high meant?
16. Sinn Fein, the IRA’s political wing continues to be a virulent critic of Israel. In 2006, Aengus Ó Snodaigh described Israel as "one of the most abhorrent and despicable regimes on the planet."
17. The meaning of #SallyRoony's boycott of Hebrew-speakers, most of whom are Israelis, must be evaluated against this miserable history of over a century of consistent, proudly displayed Irish antisemitism, immediately and seamlessly followed by anti-Zionist agitation.
18. Anyone exonerating #SallyRooney shd explain why Jews/Hebrew-speakers/Zionists/Israelis need have any doubt about the spring of her animus. The coincidence where Jews are consistently targeted for malign slander by some Irish notable overstrains the credulity of even Jews.

@danosbornens @YaaraSaks @theJagmeetSingh I think 16 year olds are very silly and extremely susceptible to peer pressure and conformity. They shd be forgiven for their stupid opinions. But your apology doesn't sound genuine; if you don't remember, how can you know you meant no harm? /1
@danosbornens @YaaraSaks @theJagmeetSingh Tell us what how you stand TODAY about Israel as the Jewish state, what kind of poisonous "knowledge" about its existence and history you have imbibed, and how are you going to make sure that a Final Solution to its 6M Jews is not what you are promoting./2
@danosbornens @YaaraSaks @theJagmeetSingh Tell us how you reject blood libels about Israel.
Show us that you understand what antisemitism is.
Prove that you fully understand that when your constituents call for "Free Palestine", they mean no Jews between the river and the sea.
Can you do that? /3

This appears in [an academic] article that defends Jeremy Corbyn's twin comments: "Jews don't understand English irony" and "Zionists don't want to study history".

In Ulysses James Joyce has his protagonist Stephen recite a vicious antisemitic nursery rhyme -a medieval blood libel-to Bloom, the Jew who's suffered a million antisemitic papercuts throughout the day.

How well Joyce knew the soul of the Irish!

The meaning of a bloodied baby as murdered by Jews depicted above is better grasped in all its gruesome detail and venomous hatred if we read the poem:

@JudeoBeanism -self defined as "antizionist & anti imperialist ashkenazi jew" retweeted this thread 👇 by @zei_squirrel

It directly reminded me of this quote from the greatest and most effective anti-Zionist in history:
There's no language that can adequately encompass the sheer evil irony displayed in these two sinisterly-similar quotes whose intent is clear and declarative:
