One or more anti-Semites sent a package of suspicious white powder and a photograph of Nazis to the home of Ireland’s Justice Minister Alan Shatter on Wednesday.

Security officials raised an emergency alert, and a bomb squad arrived to investigate. Officials concluded the powder was harmless baking powder.

The photograph showed Nazi soldiers at a rally with flags displaying swastikas, the Irish Independent reported.

The hoax probably was related to a vote of no confidence Shatter faces following several controversies in the Justice Department.

Enda Kenny, who heads the Irish government, described the hoax as a “new low” and said,  “The minister is in the house a long time. Members of the Jewish faith have been members of the Fianna Fail party, the Labor Party and the Fine Gael Party… It is not in order that anti-Semitic material is being received by the minister who just happens to be a member of a particular faith.”

Minister for Health James Reilly said this morning that the incident was “absolutely appalling” and that the implied threat in the package is being treated as criminal act.

  1. Why would you minimize this by calling it simply “a hoax”?

  2. That is such a sick hateful thing to do. I agree with Jordan.

  3. There will always be anti-Semitic scum, mostly non achievers and low IQ jackasses that haven’t the guts to come forward and say something in public.

  4. God will judge everyone God Bless Israel. shalom

  5. Les Le Gear says:

    You said it Harvey. Couldn't agree with you more.

  6. Cody Flecker says:

    Thank God for the Orangemen of Ireland.

  7. Anonymous says:

    It's pathetic. All these antisemites should stop using every product and inventions by Jews.

  8. Stanley Roth says:

    The Irish should like the Jews because the man who was wanted DEAD by the Free State was a Jew because he was the arms runner for the IRA and later became Lord Mayor of Dublin

  9. Russell Grayson says:

    As a Jewish kid growing up in Irish Norwood in the North Bronx, we collected money for the IRA. UNICEF boxes on Halloween? Got dropped off with the NORAID folks. We always remembered that NYC City Council President Paul O'Dwyer was running guns to the Haganah and Irgun in pre-state Israel to help the Jews against the common enemy–Britain and their racist, imperialist BS. "26+6=1" is an equation that lives forever in my heart. Never found the Irish to be Jew-haters. Any anti-Jewish feelings were inculcated by the Catholic church. I always knew that the neighborhood Irish bullies weren't anti-semitic…even though their beatings and harangues were. They just hated EVERYBODY and found whatever excuse that they needed. As I got older, many of these same kids became life-long buddies who'd take a bullet for me, and support Israel to this day.

    I realize that the Irish Press is a Jew-Hating rag, but that's an editorial posture, not representative of the Irish people. I'll say it again: 26+6=1, Britain out of Ireland NOW!

  10. Never pay back their injustices. God will pay. Pray for the.
