The Irish Republican Army (IRA): The World’s Forgotten Terrorists.

In December 2012 the then-Secretary of State Hilary Clinton greeted IRA terrorist Martin McGuinness with delight; showing the hypocrisy of America’s understanding of what terrorism is and what freedom fighting is.

clip_image002[4]The IRA murdered hundreds of people. Many foreign nations see them as ‘liberty rebels’, but ultimately, they took the lives of thousands of civilians.

McGuinness authorized the murder of hundreds of Ulster men and women as well as contributing to the deaths of British servicemen. Clinton’s husband sanctioned the bombing of Belgrade/Serbia resulting in the deaths of many who stood up to Islam; it’s no wonder the two get along so well.

Whilst it may have shocked some that Hilary Clinton was bartering a kiss and a handclasp with a man who was commonly known as the Butcher of Bogside, there are many who don’t assume the IRA to be terrorists. It would seem the word terrorism is reserved for those with different coloured skin.

Most Americans would not share admiring interest any kind of terror based organisation but their knowledge of the Irish problem is almost zero.

Most Americans look through the photos of her 2012 visit and think the people waving British flags were English and supporting the empire.

If you lived through the 70′s, 80′s and 90’s and were affected by the IRA then you would know the anguish all too well.

According to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism, many countries don’t in-fact view the IRA as terrorists. Unsurprisingly, America is one of them.

ARE THE IRA ON THE WORLD’S TERRORIST ORGANISATION LIST?

Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO):            No

Terrorist Exclusion List (TEL):           No

UK Proscribed Group:            Yes

Australia Specified Group:     No

 

Today, the word “terrorist” seems to be reserved for Muslims. When Anders Breivik terrorised people, mainstream outlets failed to dub him as a “terrorist” – the same goes for the hundreds of mass-shootings that have taken place in America.

It is claimed that the IRA were people who were fighting for the freedom of their country, rights and religion. This may be true, but is that not what Al-Qaeda does too?

Hamas and Al-Qaeda constantly submit that they are freedom fighters.

Their targets are often civilians, bombing and threatening to detonate bombs under non-combatant areas such as schools.

Innocent unarmed civilians are often killed as a result of their “freedom fighting”.

So essentially, are these groups not the same thing? The only thing separating (apart from religious beliefs) are the way the world responds to them. The Irish National Liberation Army, Irish People’s Liberation Organisation and the Provisional Irish Republican Army are all listed as terrorist organisations by the UK, but not by the United States, Australia or other Western Nations.

Sure, the IRA just want what they feel is naturally theirs and they will fight to be heard. It’s just…well…isn’t that exactly what other, more ‘mainstream’ terrorist organisations want too?
