Ehud, your comment is pretty stupid. Are you a Christian? (Itâ€™s hard to tell). You wonâ€™t fool anyone with your simplistic analysis of this story. The Paisleyâ€™s have stood for Unionism and the cause of Ulster Protestants for many years. Thank God that the political developments here have delivered us from a constant stream of killings and bombings. Republicanism has been defeated. Sinn Fein has had to accept devolved government in Northern Ireland and the IRA has had to decommission its weaponsâ€“ they said it would never happen, but they have had to change. They have had to abandon violence in order for their political mandate to be recognised. The dissident Republicans, while still dangerous, represent the dying embers of a lost cause. Good policemen have stood literally between Ian Paisley and terrorism for many years and he stood resolutely and faithfully for them. Iâ€™m glad he played his part in delivering peace â€“ Unionists trust him, thatâ€™s why theyâ€™ve voted for him in huge numbers for over 30 years. Your cheap snipes against Christians on a Christian website say a lot about the state of your heart.
this is strange one -how could he be threatened by the very type of people his father laughed with and the party share power -a lot of people over here reckon its a big red herring to give the young paisley a bit of kudos in preparation for the elections- most people are no longer fooled by thses stunts.Remember also that no member of the present paisley family ever served in the police or armyand whilst he wants increased security what about the police officers and unionists living along the border in daily peril of their existence
