John Brennan Draws Parallels Between Isis And The IRA In Letter To Editor
More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall November 17, 2015| Posted by | Comment on More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall Comment

Dear Editor,

re: Terrorists.

On Friday 20 November 2015 we saw a terrorist organisation carry out cold, callous and coordinated attacks in Paris. For many people that have grown up here and now live in Paris and for many still living here in Northern Ireland I am sure this brought back memories of the bad old days during the so called ‘troubles’.

dn_screenThe terrorists that carried out these attacks are monsters and I do not believe for one minute they represent the majority of the Muslim faith just as I don’t believe that the IRA who bombed and butchered many people here in the same style of attacks represent the majority of Nationalist community during their own terrorist Campaign.

I personally see no difference between those that attacked Paris on Friday night and those that attacked and murdered so many here in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK

Our leaders here and in the rest of the UK are right to be condemning the people and the terrorist organisation that carried out this wave of attacks in Paris but I am finding it very hard to swallow that these same people allow IRA terrorists to sit in our government here in Northern Ireland.

Our leaders here should be ashamed of themselves. How Hypocritical are the politicians here to condemn the attacks in Paris and vow to do everything they can to defeat the people responsible but they will sit every day in Stormont with the terrorists responsible for so many terrorist attacks and murders here in Northern Ireland.

Do our own people who suffered at the hands of terrorists not deserve the same justice as those affected in Paris?

Do our politicians here care more for those killed in other countries than those murdered at the hands of terrorists in our own country?

If not then we need to see justice for all those murdered at the hands of the IRA.

They should start by arresting all those that are known to have been commanders of the IRA and all those known to be on or have that been on the IRA Army Council as they are sure to know something about the terrorist attacks we sustained in Northern Ireland during the so called ‘troubles’.
