July 28th announcement by the Provo leadership of
their intention to totally disarm has engendered
both shock and fear within the 6-county Republican/Nationalist
population. For now, Messrs Adams and McGuinness
and Co. have finally done the unthinkable; in surrendering
all weaponry these servants and agents of the queen
will have put in jeopardy the health and safety
of their own people, who will face and be threatened
by the massive fire-power available to the loyalists,
as well as the British occupation army and police.
It is scandalous that the alleged 'leadership' of
the Provos had not demanded a wholesale stand-down
of loyalist and Brit weaponry prior to even considering
handing in their own!
one thing we can be certain: those whom the media
have described as "dissidents" in Ireland
are definitely not those patriotic men and women
who will continue to strive for Ireland's unity
and sovereignty, but those faux-republicans who
are now unilaterally disarming at the demand of
the terrorist state, England, which is their centuries-old
and only enemy. Their shameless surrender will,
unfortunately, result in future unrestrained attacks
and murders upon the very people who have depended
upon the Provo IRA for a modicum of protection.
no one should be totally surprised at this abject
obeisance to a foreign queen, for in a "Sunday
Times" item of March 28, 1999, Francie Molloy,
a Provo member of the British parliament in Ireland,
is so quoted: "Republicans are prepared to
work an executive. We are really prepared to administer
British rule in Ireland for the foreseeable future.
The very principle of partition is accepted."
In conclusion, to quote Thomas Davis, the renowned
patriot-poet of Irish Freedom: "Hell is not
hot enough to scathe the lowly wretch who breaks
American-based Irish Freedom Committee, Inc. will
never desist in demanding political status for today's
incarcerated republican prisoners and, when possible,
to offer aid to their deserving families.
