April, 2006: Asked how he felt about the public
dismissal of him by his former friend Gerry Adams,
Donaldson shrugged and said: "I don't want
to be in touch with anyone. As you can see, I'm
in the middle of nowhere."
This is one instance that has left me in an inscrutable
daze. How does someone like this slip through the
grip of justice?? How ever he lives now is still
a reward for such a deed. The only thing that would
have a sprinkle of honour would be for him to bring
justice to himself. Just what damage was done we
will never know. How Sinn Féin never looked
into it, but seemingly washed it aside leaves one
to think, was this a cover-up of a greater misdeed?
Am I guilty of silly speculation or is this a fact
that maybe this is a conspired shadow that reflects
a far more reaching darker cast, lingering in fear
of being un-covered. He came out to California to
direct us in the struggle of the cause. Now we find
out he was a curse to that same cause. He states
he doesn't want to be in touch with anyone. Well
if only he felt that way when the Brits approached
him. How much he put the touch on the Brits to fill
his pockets we may never know. One would hope Gerry
Adams would have the answers to our speculations,
but it seems Gerry doesn't even have questions, never
mind answers to it all.
April, 2006: Former senior Sinn Fein member Denis
Donaldson has been found shot dead in the Irish
I look deep into my heart to see if there was some
slight bit of forgiveness to be found anywhere?
Well, I couldn't even find scraps of pity. Is
there someone who can say this man had the right
to live? This man who shortened many a life, of
his own kind. The blood of the Gibraltar Three in
on his hands. Where the list goes from there we
may never know. He knew the movement and when he
was uncovered, he also knew the outcome. If he didn't
take his own life he made it possible that justice
was done. He knew he was a marked man as soon as
he was found. Speculation will run amok in the circle
of finger pointing. The DUP will run this into the
ground. Gerry Adams will come out against it, and
the press will have a field day. You could write
their headlines, knowing their past history. If
the DUP uses this to put the spike into the heart
of the GFA, then maybe Donaldson's death will have
some redeeming qualities. I am not saying back to
WAR, but I am saying back into a British led government
is not any form of FREEDOM or PEACE.
April, 2006: Execution or Murder
First one has to understand that Dennis Donaldson
was not shot for anything he did lately, but for
decades of collaboration as a British agent. Collaboration
means cooperating traitorously with the enemy. It
was a time of war, lives were at stake and Donaldson
was well aware of the consequence he would pay,
if uncovered. There is no question as to his guilt.
So just when does an execution become a murder?
Does time determine what label should be used? Or
is it political backflipping to take away attention
to anyone using this as a tool to push you away
from an agenda? Just who can come out the strongest
to condemn the actions taken against Donaldson,
will show us who is trying to please who. It seems
it is more about saving the peace process than the
act itself. To say whoever is behind this is against
the GFA. First some would question if the GFA is
a peace process or just a roll over to John Bull?
Jumping through a British hoop does not bring about
a just peace or repair a fractured country. Throw
in the factor that the Unionists are demanding that
the hoop be set on fire, to make it that much harder.
To tie in what happened to Donaldson to the peace
process would be saying marriage is the main cause
of divorce. In some way it may seem a true statement,
but just who would give it any consideration?
Donaldson was not sending information to the Brits
on West Belfast, but in fact was worldwide. I remember
when he was out here, in California, directing us
on his agenda for the cause. To learn he was a curse
to the cause will always linger with me even that
justice was given to him in this life. As for the
fires of the hereafter, he may well have to look
up to see Thatcher!
I cry, but sadly not alone,
as tears will fall from the likes of
Pearse, Emmet,Sands and Tone
I have seen in the back of Caitlin Ni Houlihan,
A blade pushed deep, by Irish hands
Oh! how hard for me to understand.
What of the faithful who died for dear old
Caitlin Ni Houlihan?
Should we now fall lovingly around our
Never again to have respect
Walk away, Oh traitors
til the sound of silver coins
we hear no more.
Go before your Lords
and, as traitors, take your bow
For the name Iscariot be branded
on you now.
And when they lay your body in the clay
Even the worms will crawl away!!!!!!!
