Yet another O'Doherty tirade
Published 23/04/2010 | 05:00
Yes, Ian O'Doherty does it again ('Where are your union dues going?', Irish Independent, April 16) in yet another of his hysterical tirades, trotted out with an apparent regularity every two or three weeks, against those who oppose Israel's occupation of Palestine.
This time, Mr O' Doherty has plumbed new depths in accusing those who support the Palestinian cause in general, and the ICTU in particular, of being racist.
What more reasonable thing can the ICTU concern itself with than the longest sustained mass abuse of human rights in modern history? Does this represent the "disconnect" from the concerns of ICTU members that Mr O'Doherty believes?
