The Irish Government will accept a motion to be proposed by the opposition on Tuesday calling on parliament to recognize Palestine as a state, echoing similar recent symbolic decisions in other European Union countries.
While most developing countries recognize Palestine as a state, most Western European countries do not, supporting the Israeli and US position that an independent Palestinian state should emerge from negotiations with Israel.

European countries have grown frustrated with Israel, which since the collapse of the latest US-sponsored talks in April has pressed on with building settlements in territory the Palestinians want for their state.The government’s decision comes after Sweden became the biggest Western European country to recognize Palestine, and parliaments in Spain, Britain and France held votes in which they backed non-binding resolutions in favor of recognition.

It also follows the passing of a motion in Ireland’s upper house in October calling on the government to formally recognize Palestine.

Members of parliament in the lower house are due to discuss the motion proposed by the opposition Sinn Fein party later on Tuesday and on Wednesday. A government spokesman said it will not oppose the bill, meaning MPs will not be required to vote.

The motion calls on the government to “officially recognize the State of Palestine, on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital, as established in UN resolutions, as a further positive contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” It also recognizes that “continued Israeli settlement construction and extension activities in the West Bank, is illegal and severely threatening the establishment of a viable Palestinian state.”

Scotland put Ireland to the Sword at Celtic Park (GOAL VIDEO)


Brilliant goal by Ex Celtic Maloney!

Brilliant goal by Ex Celtic Maloney!

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ShaunyNews

The Tartan Army filled Paradise tonight, Celtic park in a group game we NEEDED to win. 3 points was the order of the day. We deserved to win, it wasn’t a mistake the goal, a 1-2 with Maloney and Celtic’s Scott Brown seen Maloney curl an unstoppable shot into the far post. Brillian team goal, superb solo goal.

We went into this game knowing Poland had beat Georgia 4-0 and were top of the Group D on 10 points, we had to get onto 7 points with the ROI and Germany tonight and we did it. Ireland started the better team creating a few half chances early on. As the game progressed through the 2nd half Scotland started to control the game. The goal came on 74 minutes and left every living breathing Scottish person with a LONG 15 minutes till the ref blew his whistle. Ireland hit the bar in added time but anything other than a Scotland win would have been unfair tonight. So proud to be Scottish tonight, I like the Republic of Ireland, as a Celtic fan I am obviously always torn. But Scotland ALWAYS!

6 games to play and we are well placed to get out this group and into the EC

Celtic FC Players – Show Racism the Red Card – Video By The Football Club


SRTRC-SCOTLAND

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I did this article on Glasgow Celtic Football Club, my club, my first love, the reason my childhood made me smile, the memories I have for a lifetime, the reason I played football from the age of 8 till 23. Sadly my playing career was cut short when I was tackled hard and my left leg was left in an ‘L’ shape leaving me in agony today still and stopping me doing what every kid in Europe and around the World wants to do, that’s play Football. I did this article https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/glasgow-celtic-fc-more-than-just-a-football-club-we-are-a-people-for-my-friends-around-the-world/

The Famous Green and White 'Hoops'

The Famous Green and White ‘Hoops’

Had it not been for my love and passion of the “Celt’s” I would have stopped,I never, I went on to manage and coach football teams for 15 years before the pain won, now I write Football in many places, I love it, it’s all I have left of football. Celtic are a club open to any supporter, any fan, any player. Unlike other football clubs in Scotland we pride ourselves not just on our Irish roots but also opening our club up to the World. We have players from playing for us as I type from Honduras, Israel, Serbia, Norway, Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, The Czech Republic, Australia, Iceland, Finland,Wales, Republic Of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England and of course Scotland. All the players who pull on the famous Green and White Hoops are from all these countries. Some are in the 1st team, some in the under 20 team, some are out on loan, but this diversity my club has given us a Football Club open to anyone. We do charity events all over the World, we have Football Academies all over Earth, Our International Partners are Worldwide,  Boston, New Jersey, Florida, San Diego Football Academy, St Louis, all the USA. We have supporters clubs in Australia, Canada, USA, Ireland, Africa, India, Japan, China, Russia and many in South America. We touch ever part of the globe.

Celtic and charity, Celtic was initially founded to raise money for the poor in the East End of Glasgow and the club still retain strong charitable traditions today.
On 9 August 2011 Celtic held a testimonial match in honour of former player John Kennedy. Due to the humanitarian crisis in East Africa, the entire proceeds were donated to Oxfam. An estimated £300,000 was raised.
In 1995 the Celtic charity fund was formed with the aim of “revitalising Celtic’s charitable traditions” and to August 2011 has raised over £3 million.
Celtic hold an annual charity fashion show at Celtic Park. In 2011 the main beneficiaries were Breast Cancer Care Scotland.
Yorkhill Hospital is another charity with whom Celtic are affiliated and in December 2011 the club donated £3000 to it. Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said that; “Celtic has always been much more than a football club and it is important that, at all times we play an important role in the wider community. The club is delighted to have enjoyed such a long and positive connection with Yorkhill Hospital.”

Pope begs forgiveness of abuse victims as accusations of cover-up begin



A lot on his mind?

Pope Francis has begged for forgiveness in his first meeting with Catholics sexually abused by members of the clergy and gone further than any of his predecessors by vowing to hold bishops accountable for their handling of paedophile priests. Abuse victims and their advocates have long demanded that higher-ups be made to answer for the decades-long cover-ups of rape and molestation of youngsters in a scandal that has rocked the church and dismayed its worldwide flock of 1.2 billion. The pope celebrated a private Mass with six victims – two each from Ireland, Britain and Germany – at his Vatican residence on Monday, and spent the rest of the morning listening to their accounts, one-on-one.

“Before God and his people, I express my sorrow for the sins and grave crimes of clerical sexual abuse committed against you. And I humbly ask forgiveness,” Francis said, according to the Associated Press news agency. “I beg your forgiveness, too, for the sins of omission on the part of church leaders who did not respond adequately to reports of abuse made by family members, as well as by abuse victims themselves,” the pope said. “This led to even greater suffering on the part of those who were abused, and it endangered other minors who were at risk.”

But, when speaking of accountability, he made no mention of what countless victims and their families around the globe have waited years to hear: whether bishops and other prelates who shuffled child-molesting priests from parish to parish or didn’t inform police and prosecutors would be fired or demoted. “All bishops must carry out their pastoral ministry with utmost care in order to help foster the protection of minors, and they will be held accountable,” Francis said, delivering his homily in his native Spanish. The survivors were allowed to bring a relative or friend and an interpreter.

‘Cover-up’

One of the six victims, Marie Kane, 43, who was abused by a priest for three years while a teenager in Ireland, said she asked Francis to remove an Irish cardinal, Sean Brady, from his post because of how he handled abuse allegations. Kane told the Irish Times newspaper that she told Francis a “cover-up is still happening, and you have the power to make these changes.” She quoted him as replying, “It was difficult to make these changes.” When Brady turns 75 next month, he will be required to offer his resignation to the pontiff, who can accept or ask him to stay on. Many faithful, especially in the US, were outraged when Boston Archbishop Bernard Law, accused of shielding abusive priests during his tenure, was given a prestigious post at a Rome basilica in 2004 by Pope John Paul II instead of being demoted.
