Order Discount Diabecon

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. Order discount diabecon 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 . Order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon that it illegally imprisoned these Irish citizens in an Israeli jail, order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon which have recently led the Irish government to expel an Israeli diplomat from our shores. Order discount diabecon During the same abovementioned act of piracy in international waters, order discount diabecon Israeli commandos attacked a defenceless Turkish passenger ship and murdered 9 of its passengers, order discount diabecon unarmed peace activists. Order discount diabecon Israel illegally occupies Palestinian and Syrian territory, order discount diabecon illegally imposes a marine blockade and land siege on the Gaza strip, order discount diabecon is building a Wall on Palestinian territory in violation of international law, order discount diabecon and is building settlement-colonies throughout the Palestinian territories in violation of the 4th Geneva Convention. Order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon You are lending succour to state terrorism, order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon Jul 7, order discount diabecon 2010 at 6:18 PM Thank you for your comments. We all have our own political stands, order discount diabecon and I respect yours. As for me, order discount diabecon I believe in Israel and all they stand for. If your love is for the terrorist nations that support the killing of Isrealis, order discount diabecon then so be it. Order discount diabecon Israel belongs to the people of Israel and always will. Order discount diabecon A land given to them by God, order discount diabecon our creator. As long as they have to fight for their rights, order discount diabecon I will be right behind them. We have lots of Israeli tourist staying at our hotel, order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon it is quite the opposite. This is free country last I checked, order discount diabecon so what flag we fly or what guests we have, order discount diabecon has nothing at all to do with you. Long live the land of Israel , order discount diabecon and the sooner the Palestine 's return to Jordan and Syria , order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon Head Office Ballyshannon, order discount diabecon Co. Order discount diabecon Donegal 8th July 2010 To the senior management of Whites Hotel Group, order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon outrage, order discount diabecon at the actions of one of your hotel managers, order discount diabecon a Mr. Order discount diabecon Mark Audie of the Burren Castle Hotel, order discount diabecon Lisdoonvarna, order discount diabecon Co. Order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon the renowned composer Dr. Order discount diabecon Raymond Deane, order discount diabecon was passing your Burren Castle Hotel and noticed that the flag of Israel was being flown outside. Order discount diabecon As a supporter of human rights for Palestinians, order discount diabecon Dr. Order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon Deane wrote to the hotel management to raise these issues. Order discount diabecon In response, order discount diabecon Mr. Order discount diabecon Deane received a most extraordinary, order discount diabecon unprofessional, order discount diabecon vile and racist reply from a Mr. Order discount diabecon Mark Audie. Order discount diabecon The full correspondence is enclosed in this mail, order discount diabecon but among the low-lights of Mr. Order discount diabecon Audie’s reply include the assertions that “Israel belongs to the people of Israel and always will, order discount diabecon [it was] given to them by God” and “the sooner the Palestine's [sic] return [sic] to Jordan and Syria, order discount diabecon the better”. While such opinions are commonplace among right-wing Zionist zealots – and indeed Mr. Order discount diabecon Audie is entitled to his own personal opinions no matter how disgustingly racist – it is simply outrageous that such ill-informed, order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon Audie, order discount diabecon but also to inform you that we will be making a complaint about the hotel and Mr. Order discount diabecon Audie’s conduct to An Bord Failte, order discount diabecon as well as to the UN World Tourist Organisation and to various tourist boards in the Middle East. Order discount diabecon 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. Order discount diabecon However, order discount diabecon should such action not be taken, order discount diabecon we will be forced to conclude that far from wishing to distance senior management from such outrageous remarks, order discount diabecon Whites actually endorses these disgraceful comments and that they were indeed made in an official capacity by Mr. Order discount diabecon Audie. Order discount diabecon The actions we would suggest you take are the following. Should the IPSC be led to conclude that WHG endorse the actions of Mr. Order discount diabecon Audie, order discount diabecon indeed that WHG is an organisation that is actively anti-Palestinian, order discount diabecon then we would have no choice but to publicise widely the actions of your hotel chain. Order discount diabecon We would have to inform our thousands of supporters in Ireland , order discount diabecon but more importantly for your point of view, order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon and we await your response. Yours sincerely, order discount diabecon Freda Hughes Chairperson Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign ----- Two days ago Freda in the IPSC received this from Whites Hotel! 4/ Dear Freda, order discount diabecon As per our telephone conversation today, order discount diabecon 12 July2010, order discount diabecon I would like to apologise for the whole incident and as of last Friday, order discount diabecon 9 July 2010 when I was informed, order discount diabecon I immediately got the flag taken down and the person in question has been verbally warned for his outrageous comments and views. Order discount diabecon As I said on the phone, order discount diabecon I completely disagree with the Israeli's views worldwide and I personally support the people in Gaza . Order discount diabecon 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, order discount diabecon Marcus White Director White Hotel Group And again, order discount diabecon the moral of this tale is that it pays to protest.
