Let’s take stern action over passport abuse

THE abuse of Irish passports must stop.

We should close the Israeli embassy over the use of our passports by their assassins and if the allegations of spying against Russia are true we should expel the Russian ambassador over their abuse of our passports. We only have our good name and if we let nations like these abuse it, none of our citizens is safe abroad.

If we continue to allow others to abuse our reputation by allowing death squads and spies to hide behind our citizens then our citizenship is cheapened and our lives endangered. As Shakespeare said: “Who steals my purse steals trash, but he that filches from me my good name robs me of that which not enriches him and makes me poor indeed.”
