Question: What’s the fastest growing religion in Ireland?
Answer: No, not Catholicism. Not the Protestant Church. Nope. It’s Islam.
So, does that have anything to do with last week’s obnoxious, anti-American jury decision? Perhaps.
Regardless, last week, a Dublin jury acquitted five protesters who admitted–yes, admitted!–using hammers and an ax to attack a U.S. Navy cargo plane at Shannon Airport in February 2003. They claimed they committed the $2.5 million worth of damage to the cargo plane so they could “save lives in Iraq.”
The O.J.-style jury acquitted these five anti-American vandalous criminals after a 12-day trial. But, it gets worse. This was the third Irish O.J.-style jury in the case. Two previous juries were deadlocked in two previous trials of these thugs.
And here’s a clue: The Navy cargo plane, a Boeing 737, was carrying spare parts from Texas to an air base on Sicily, Italy–NOT Iraq.
And frequent Islamofascist ally, the IRA, chimed in by hailing this absurd decision:
Sinn Fein, the political arm of the Irish Republican Army, said vandalising US aircraft was “a justified response to Irish complicity in the illegal occupation of Iraq and use of Irish facilities as a pit stop for US warplanes.”
Thanks, Ireland. Where’s St. Patrick when we need him? Apparently, he missed a few snakes.
