OFER EINI , Chair of the Israeli trade union federation, Histadrut [ whose members are 10% Arab ] is both a Vice-President of the global trade union body, ITUC, with 176m workers in 156 lands, and also one of 25 elected to its Executive board and one of 70 on its General Council.
ITUC at its June 2010 Vancouver second World Congress firmly supported co-operation, not boycott, as the only way forward, for Israelis and Palestinians, both as trade unionists and as neighbors in the Middle East. A clear policy position utterly repudiating the fanatical fringe who aim to demonise Israel.

The renegade *republican* gang in Ireland, the so-called *Real IRA* have a PR/political wing which calls itself *32 County Sovereignty Movement*. The RIRA bombed Omagh in August 1998 -the worst atrocity of the long campaign. They are parading here against Israel - totally logical as they share with Hamas rejection of
