Unveiled at industry conference, plan takes top treasury official by surprise.00:02 27.11.15 | 0 comments
On St.Patrick's Day last week President Obama spent much of the day wearing Shamrock and attending Irish events and being photographed in PUBLIC with the Irish PM and other ministers, including the Foreign Minister. At a Dinner in the evening part of the entertainment was provided by a traditional Irish Dance Troupe from Public School 95 in the Bronx. What was most intersting about this is that all the chidren were of Hispanic or Afro-American origin. On the same day in New York members of the IDF (IRISH Defence Forces- 58th Reserve Batallion). marched Down 5th Avenue. Before the parade began the Irish attended Mass at St.Patrick's Cathedral along with the 69th INf. of the US Army (The Fighting Irish). I am writing as one who would like nothing betterthan to see the Israeli Army getting an equivalent warm welcome in NY- and also serving alongside the Irish in UN Peacekeeping Operations.
