New Irish PM Accuses Israel of ‘Slaughter’ in Gaza


Newly elected Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris blasted Israel’s handling of Gaza during his inaugural speech to parliament on Thursday.

“In Gaza, we are witnessing a humanitarian catastrophe and seeing innocent children, women, and men being starved and slaughtered,” Harris said. “We have not been silent on the unforgivable terrorist actions of Hamas on October 7, nor can we be silent on the disproportionate reaction of the Israeli government. As a country, we will play our part in helping bring about a ceasefire and a lasting peace,” he added.

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs immediately issued a response, pointing out how the Irish prime minister seemed to “forget” to mention the Israeli hostages who have been “rotting in Hamas tunnels for the past six months.”

“After the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, and even after the war crimes, crimes against humanity, and the sexual crimes that were committed, and are still being committed, by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women and men, there are those in Ireland who persist in being on the wrong side of history,” the statement read.

A spokesperson for the prime minister told The Irish Times that Simon has been “even-handed at all times” in his response to the conflict, recalling instances during Harris’s tenure as Minister for Higher Education when he actively called for the release of Israeli hostages.

Simon’s harsh words for the Jewish state come just two days after the government indicated its willingness to recognize a Palestinian state, with or without Israel’s participation.
