Loyalists harassing and hurting Catholics

Some people may get the impression that because I am a nationalist I specifically highlight loyalist violence and turn a blind eye to Republican violence. This is not true. I simply comment on the news. To prove it, have a look at the front page of BBC's NI news section right here.

The top story is
this story I highlighted in my previous post about a civilian getting shot in loyalist rioting.

The second story which you can read
here, is about a Catholic man being in critical condition in hospital after being attacked by a gang of up to 10 men in east Belfast. BBC report:

The 29-year-old, believed to be a Catholic, was discovered lying on a river walkway at the junction of the Albertbridge Road and Short Strand.

He had sustained a head injury and was given emergency treatment at the scene.

Sinn Fein assembly member Alex Maskey said he believed the victim was attacked because he was Catholic.

"There is no doubt that these incidents do rise in the number, and very often the intensity, depending on what the current political situation is," he said.

The third story on BBC's NI section can be read
here and is about a man arrested in connection with attacks on two Catholic churches in Banbridge being released on police bail pending further enquiries.

So you see, the reality of the situation is that the Loyalists are the ones causing carnage and mayhem. Not nationalists. Not Republicans. Loyalists! And I want to know what is to be done about it?!
