I live in Ireland where we had sectarian violence and violence against British forces for many, many years but the British forces would never have gotten away with the methods used in these demonstrations. The level of violence that the IDF are prepared to use to "contain" these demonstrations is much greater than would have tolerated from British forces in similar situations. This excessive violence and readiness to use lethal force would not have been tolerated by the Irish but perhaps more importantly would not have been condoned by British people.
