Israel attacks Iran!

Some of the families that left Limerick due to the boycott were the Ginsbergs, the Jaffés (to Newcastle), the Weinronks (to South Africa), and the Goldbergs (to Leeds).[18] The Goldberg family ended up leaving Leeds and settling in Cork. Gerald Goldberg, a son of this migration, became Lord Mayor of Cork in 1977,[19] and the Marcus brothers, David and Louis, grandchildren of the boycott, would become hugely influential in Irish literature and Irish film, respectively.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limerick_boycott
Just read the above on wikipedia and it's a bit distasteful the way they played it down. All Jewish families left Limerick shortly afterwards not just the immediate 5. Calling it a boycott as well rather than a pogrom. They were physcially attacked after a sustained violent campaign.
Goldberg's view;
The nature and scale of the violence Creagh caused has generated considerable debate. In April 1970, Gerald Goldberg[19] (whose family lived in Limerick in 1904) characterized it as a ‘near genocide perpetrated … against some 150 defenceless Jewish men, women and children’.[20]

Although he became somewhat more considered on the subject over the next 30 years, his continuing view of the violence as essentially pogromist https://www.theirishstory.com/2020/07/05/revisiting-the-limerick-pogrom-of-1904/#.YCaN02j7SUk

Thanks for sharing.

A microcosim of why Israel exists today.
 
Israel Strikes again.
Israel has not confirmed it was behind a cyber-attack on the heavily guarded Natanz facility, but its security officials have done little to dispel the notion.

US intelligence sources said the attack on Saturday led to an explosion that destroyed the independently protected power supply to the advanced centrifuges that create enriched uranium.

Iranian intelligence claimed to have identified an individual inside the plant’s hall who was responsible for the sabotage by disrupting the flow of electricity, but the account was being treated with caution and may be intended to show the plant’s electricity flow is not vulnerable to external attack.

US intelligence sources told the New York Times they believed Israel was responsible for the attack, the second in nine months.
 
Israel Again

?

Military officials in the Gulf are investigating what caused the Iranian navy’s largest vessel to catch fire and sink in the latest mysterious incident to affect shipping linked to Tehran.

The support ship Kharg went down in the strait of Hormuz just after dawn on Wednesday, after a fire that had started 18 hours earlier reached the waterline. All crew members are reported to have survived.


Iranian media reported that the fire had started in the boiler room of the 44-year-old ship. Images captured by drones and satellites showed the vessel fully ablaze, with survivors wearing lifejackets in rescue ships nearby.

The sinking of the Kharg marked the second time in the past three months that an Iranian vessel has suffered serious damage at sea. In early April, an Iranian freighter, the Saviz, which had supported the Houthi war effort off the coast of Yemen was damaged by mines placed on its hull by Israeli commandos.

Regional officials said it was as yet unclear whether the sinking of the Kharg was a similar act of sabotage, or an accident. Since mid-2019, shipping in the strait of Hormuz and nearby Gulf of Oman has been regularly targeted, with the US accusing Iran of placing mines on merchant shipping, and Tehran accusing Israel of doing the same to its vessels.

Klingon?



It was a chip pan fire and not the nearest Hebrews as the Iranians have to save face.
