The picture shows an improvised flag in Northern Ireland combining the Star of David symbols of Ulster and Israel on the background of the English and Israeli flags. The Protestants in Northern Ireland in some cases are anti-Jewish but most are not and many support the State of Israel. On the other hand, quite a few Irish Catholics are on the Palestinian side. There is no real logic to this since the Jews were oppressed and fought for survival whereas the Palestinians were not.
Â The Palestinians are the ones trying to take the land of the Jews away from them. Historically the Catholics in the Republic of Ireland were against accepting Jewish refugees in World War Two and did not take in any. After World War-2 they took in German and Croatian war criminals and gave them refuge. Modern day descendants of Catholic Irish in Ireland and Ulster often prefer to depict themselves as aligned with Third World Nations. In effect it may be that they are attracted to power and tend to follow the crowd. The Israeli Jews are an easy vulnerable target and it is fashionable to be against them. The Palestinian terror organizations admire the Nazis and believe in the same policies as they did. In supporting them the so-called Irish are continuing their recent tradition from World War-2.
Note: I myself may evidently in part be of Irish descent through my father. Apparently some of them are not so bad. It is just the bad eggs who lead the way.
