A pity the allegances are liek that, as historically, the parallels between the Jews and Irish are greater. Both have ancient cultures, bith were oppressed on their own land at the beginning, the Irish also have a dispora, from the potato famine, and just as Jews reestablished their independence and were deneied for 17 years sovereignity over the rest of the land of Israel, so Ireland only had independence over 3/4 of the island, and await the reunification of the rest. The Arabs arrived in the land after the Jews had been driven out, just like the Protestants took over Irish land in Norhtern Ireland. And the Irish dream of a reunified Ireland is like the Israeli dream of the Greater Land of Israel,.
