Buy Skin & Coat Chews Dogs

Moral of the story - it pays to protest... http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/01/21/5c/23/hotel-front.jpg The Tale of Burren Castle Hotel and the Israeli Flag On the 7th July Raymond Deane – an ardent campaigner for the rights of the Palestinian people – spotted the Israeli flag flying outside the Burren Castle Hotel in Lisdoonvarna Ireland. Buy skin & coat chews dogs He sent the following email to the hotel: "I could scarcely believe my eyes when I recently saw your hotel decorated with the flag of Israel . Buy skin & coat chews dogs Are you not aware that the state of Israel is a criminal state that has recently used forged Irish passports - thus putting Irish citizens at risk - when its operatives perpetrated a murder in Dubai ? Are you not aware that the state of Israel hi-jacked a ship and its largely Irish complement of passengers and crew in international waters, buy skin & coat chews dogs that it illegally imprisoned these Irish citizens in an Israeli jail, buy skin & coat chews dogs and that it failed to return such stolen property as mobile phones and cameras to them? And this is only to mention Israel 's crimes against this country, buy skin & coat chews dogs which have recently led the Irish government to expel an Israeli diplomat from our shores. Buy skin & coat chews dogs During the same abovementioned act of piracy in international waters, buy skin & coat chews dogs Israeli commandos attacked a defenceless Turkish passenger ship and murdered 9 of its passengers, buy skin & coat chews dogs unarmed peace activists. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Israel illegally occupies Palestinian and Syrian territory, buy skin & coat chews dogs illegally imposes a marine blockade and land siege on the Gaza strip, buy skin & coat chews dogs is building a Wall on Palestinian territory in violation of international law, buy skin & coat chews dogs and is building settlement-colonies throughout the Palestinian territories in violation of the 4th Geneva Convention. Buy skin & coat chews dogs This is not to mention the thousands of Palestinian lives that have been lost because of the actions of Israel 's brutal and out-of-control armed forces, buy skin & coat chews dogs acting illegally within those same occupied territories. I can assure you that many motorists who see this blood-stained flag as they pass your hotel will resolve to boycott your hotel and encourage everyone they know to do so also. Buy skin & coat chews dogs You are lending succour to state terrorism, buy skin & coat chews dogs and should be ashamed of yourselves. Sincerely - Raymond Deane --------------------------- Mark Audie of the hotel replied to Raymond Deane the same day: 2/ From: Mark Audie <burrencastle@ yahoo.com> Date: Wed, buy skin & coat chews dogs Jul 7, buy skin & coat chews dogs 2010 at 6:18 PM Thank you for your comments. We all have our own political stands, buy skin & coat chews dogs and I respect yours. As for me, buy skin & coat chews dogs I believe in Israel and all they stand for. If your love is for the terrorist nations that support the killing of Isrealis, buy skin & coat chews dogs then so be it. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Israel belongs to the people of Israel and always will. Buy skin & coat chews dogs A land given to them by God, buy skin & coat chews dogs our creator. As long as they have to fight for their rights, buy skin & coat chews dogs I will be right behind them. We have lots of Israeli tourist staying at our hotel, buy skin & coat chews dogs and we show them that they are welcome in Ireland just as we show welcome to all countries who come visit. As for stopping people coming inside, buy skin & coat chews dogs it is quite the opposite. This is free country last I checked, buy skin & coat chews dogs so what flag we fly or what guests we have, buy skin & coat chews dogs has nothing at all to do with you. Long live the land of Israel , buy skin & coat chews dogs and the sooner the Palestine 's return to Jordan and Syria , buy skin & coat chews dogs the better The only terrorist here is you for supporting nations that continue to try bring down the nation of Israel . Please note. THEY NEVER WILL. Thank you again for sharing the narrow minded opinion of so many sad people. Have a great day. ------------------------ Then the IPSC in Dublin fired this one off to Whites Hotel head office in Ballyshannon on the 8th July: 3/ White's & Associated Hotels. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Head Office Ballyshannon, buy skin & coat chews dogs Co. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Donegal 8th July 2010 To the senior management of Whites Hotel Group, buy skin & coat chews dogs I am writing on behalf of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign ( IPSC ) – a national movement in support of the human rights of the Palestinian people – to express our concern and frankly, buy skin & coat chews dogs outrage, buy skin & coat chews dogs at the actions of one of your hotel managers, buy skin & coat chews dogs a Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Mark Audie of the Burren Castle Hotel, buy skin & coat chews dogs Lisdoonvarna, buy skin & coat chews dogs Co. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Clare. We are writing to you as Whites Hotel Group (WHG) is the owner of the hotel in question. The background to the incident is as follows: Yesterday one of our members, buy skin & coat chews dogs the renowned composer Dr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Raymond Deane, buy skin & coat chews dogs was passing your Burren Castle Hotel and noticed that the flag of Israel was being flown outside. Buy skin & coat chews dogs As a supporter of human rights for Palestinians, buy skin & coat chews dogs Dr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Deane was shocked that the flag of a state that illegally occupies Palestine and carries out frequent internationally- condemned crimes against the Palestinian people – not to mention the abuse of Irish passports in the Dubai murder in January and the kidnapping of Irish citizens on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla last month – was proudly displayed over an Irish hotel. Dr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Deane wrote to the hotel management to raise these issues. Buy skin & coat chews dogs In response, buy skin & coat chews dogs Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Deane received a most extraordinary, buy skin & coat chews dogs unprofessional, buy skin & coat chews dogs vile and racist reply from a Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Mark Audie. Buy skin & coat chews dogs The full correspondence is enclosed in this mail, buy skin & coat chews dogs but among the low-lights of Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie’s reply include the assertions that “Israel belongs to the people of Israel and always will, buy skin & coat chews dogs [it was] given to them by God” and “the sooner the Palestine's [sic] return [sic] to Jordan and Syria, buy skin & coat chews dogs the better”. While such opinions are commonplace among right-wing Zionist zealots – and indeed Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie is entitled to his own personal opinions no matter how disgustingly racist – it is simply outrageous that such ill-informed, buy skin & coat chews dogs offensive and utterly unprofessional nonsense was allowed to be issued as an official response to a concerned member of the public from a WHG hotel. It also beggars belief that WHG would see fit to even employ someone that holds such abhorrent views as a representative in the Irish tourist industry at all. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Surely there can be no place for racists and their bigoted opinions in the land of a hundred-thousand welcomes? This letter is to make Whites Hotel Group senior management aware of the reprehensible actions of Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie, buy skin & coat chews dogs but also to inform you that we will be making a complaint about the hotel and Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie’s conduct to An Bord Failte, buy skin & coat chews dogs as well as to the UN World Tourist Organisation and to various tourist boards in the Middle East. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Furthermore we have begun contacting local and national media outlets as well as publicising the incident on our website and Facebook page. We are confident that WHG will take the appropriate action against this reprehensible individual before he causes any more damage to your public standing. Buy skin & coat chews dogs However, buy skin & coat chews dogs should such action not be taken, buy skin & coat chews dogs we will be forced to conclude that far from wishing to distance senior management from such outrageous remarks, buy skin & coat chews dogs Whites actually endorses these disgraceful comments and that they were indeed made in an official capacity by Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie. Buy skin & coat chews dogs The actions we would suggest you take are the following. Should the IPSC be led to conclude that WHG endorse the actions of Mr. Buy skin & coat chews dogs Audie, buy skin & coat chews dogs indeed that WHG is an organisation that is actively anti-Palestinian, buy skin & coat chews dogs then we would have no choice but to publicise widely the actions of your hotel chain. Buy skin & coat chews dogs We would have to inform our thousands of supporters in Ireland , buy skin & coat chews dogs but more importantly for your point of view, buy skin & coat chews dogs the millions worldwide that support the cause of Palestinian human rights. However we assume that Whites Hotel Group were unaware of and do not endorse the actions of this individual and that you will make the correct decisions, buy skin & coat chews dogs and we await your response. Yours sincerely, buy skin & coat chews dogs Freda Hughes Chairperson Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign ----- Two days ago Freda in the IPSC received this from Whites Hotel! 4/ Dear Freda, buy skin & coat chews dogs As per our telephone conversation today, buy skin & coat chews dogs 12 July2010, buy skin & coat chews dogs I would like to apologise for the whole incident and as of last Friday, buy skin & coat chews dogs 9 July 2010 when I was informed, buy skin & coat chews dogs I immediately got the flag taken down and the person in question has been verbally warned for his outrageous comments and views. Buy skin & coat chews dogs As I said on the phone, buy skin & coat chews dogs I completely disagree with the Israeli's views worldwide and I personally support the people in Gaza . Buy skin & coat chews dogs The White Hotel Group has no affiliation in the past or present with Israel . Please send on my sincere apologies to Raymond Deane and if you are ever in the area do call in to the Hydro Hotel for a chat. Yours sincerely, buy skin & coat chews dogs Marcus White Director White Hotel Group And again, buy skin & coat chews dogs the moral of this tale is that it pays to protest.
