Unity statement by ‘IRA Army Council’ Released (Updated 28/07/12)

The Real IRA and a number of breakaway IRA organisations, including Republican Action Against Drugs have come together to issue the following public statement this evening in the name of the IRA Army Council.

Following extensive consultations, Irish republicans and a number of organisations involved in armed actions against the armed forces of the British crown have come together within a unified structure, under a single leadership, subservient to the constitution of the Irish Republican Army.

The leadership of the Irish Republican Army remains committed to the full realisation of the ideals and principles enshrined in the Proclamation of 1916.

In recent years the establishment of a free and independent Ireland has suffered setbacks due to the failure among the leadership of Irish nationalism and fractures within republicanism. The root cause of conflict in our country is the subversion of the nation’s inalienable right to self-determination and this has yet to be addressed. Instead the Irish people have been sold a phoney peace, rubber-stamped by a token legislature in Stormont.

Non-conformist republicans are being subjected to harassment, arrest and violence by the forces of the British crown; others have been interned on the direction of an English overlord. It is Britain, not the IRA, which has chosen provocation and conflict.

The IRA’s mandate for armed struggle derives from Britain’s denial of the fundamental right of the Irish people to national self-determination and sovereignty – so long as Britain persists in its denial of national and democratic rights in Ireland the IRA will have to continue to assert those rights.

The necessity of armed struggle in pursuit of Irish freedom can be avoided through the removal of the British military presence in our country, the dismantling of their armed militias and the declaration of an internationally observed timescale that details the dismantling of British political interference in our country.

Signed Army Council – IRA.

    The opening paragraph of this statement to me means, that various extant ‘IRA’ groups (the collective Óglaigh na hÉireann, Real IRA and RAAD) excluding the Continuity IRA have allied with Islamic terror groups funded by Saudi.

    I thought it very likely that Islamic terror groups had requested alliance (like the IRA-PLO solidarity) but thought Irish Republican groups would be sensible enough to steer clear of them.

    From this the new IRA gets Islamic suicide bombers while the Islamicists learn how to wage a continuous war against Britain (and Europe).

    A poor strategy from the IRA because in 30 years their new allies will be striving to convert the Catholic Republic of Ireland into the Islamic Republic of Ireland.

    And so starts the Clash of Civilisations … well, it started with 911. And so escalates the Clash of Civilisations.
