We need concrete action to end the persecution in the Holy Land

blank

I salute the Irish Independent for highlighting the anguish endured by Christians in the Holy Land. Their declining numbers due to persecution and Israel‘s profession are worrying.

Christians are the salt of the earth. The Holy Land without them is a land of no value. Christian churches are regularly desecrated and destroyed. Ministers are often humiliated, intimidated, abused and harassed in order to extinguish the light of the Christian presence in Palestine.

Unfortunately, the perseverance and epic struggle of Christians against the occupation is often missing from the Western media. Palestinians do not need condemnation. They need concrete action to end the Israeli apartheid entity in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Easter raises many questions about peace and humanity

Easter is the time of rebirth in many religions, with stories or death and life. Unfortunately, all we see at the moment is deaths in the world.

Even Jerusalem, a holy city for many religions, is currently the scene of violence and riots when it is full of people celebrating their faith – or children eating too much chocolate.

Perhaps it is time for believers to pray for peace and for the rest to protest, writing letters to politicians and governments condemning acts of war and banding together to find a way for peace to flourish. peace in our time. A distant possibility or as imaginary as the Easter Bunny? It is a test for all of humanity.

RTB is making rent crisis worse by sullying landlords

The Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) is at it again. It now produces shaky numbers to support its war on private landowners.

These figures on the success or failure of the rental pressure zones contradict the information provided by the Institute for Economic and Social Research ( ESRI) shows the success of these measures since their introduction in 2016.

The main function of the RTB members seems to be to convince the public that they are worth their own sheltered salaries. To do this, they must portray landowners as enemies of the people.

However, given the mass exodus of landlords from the market since its inception in 2004, RTB is unsuitable. RTB was a net contributor to the housing crisis rather than a vehicle for positive change for tenants and landlords.

As the senseless war rages on, we must not sacrifice neutrality

If you think about it Russia could have gradually achieved all of its goals without a single loss of life by shutting off oil and gas supplies to both Ukraine and the EU, then the Russian invasion is demonstrably a monumental gamble gone wrong.

Conversely, if the sluggish EU stops importing all Russian energy supplies and suffers an economic recession (which would actually benefit the planet), the conflict could be brought to an abrupt end.

None of these very reasonable, if difficult, options were chosen.

Do the Irish, who want to give up our neutral status, want young Irish people to die for such blatant hypocrisy?

Be careful what you wish for, especially when it comes to the lives of others.

O’Mahony is an inspiration for aspiring rear rowers

As a rugby supporter and former front row forward, I was very impressed by Peter O’Mahony’s fabulous performance against the Exeter Chiefs on Saturday.

This was one of the greatest games I have ever seen played by a blind side flanker and the game video should be available to all young aspiring rear rowers.

From line out wins/steals, ball carrying, tackling to real leadership, this guy has it all.

Ryan Tubridy did nothing wrong when he popped the age question

I looked last Friday Late Late Show. Ryan Tubridy wasn’t misogynistic when he asked a guest a sensible question.

The guest said, “It’s always quite misogynistic, even if it’s unintentional, because men don’t get the same control in their careers.”

Test? I overheard Ryan asking male guests the legitimate question “How old are you?”
