I do not support the attempts to threaten the teacher for her political views in north Belfast. This is clearly wrong. However, a little honesty is called for.
It might be a good "sound bite" for Martin McGuinness to claim he would walk any threatened Protestant school teacher into school in similar circumstances. But those who had loved ones murdered in the "armed struggle" will be sickened at the hypocrisy.
The sad part is that it will be young members of Sinn Fein like Catherine Seeley who will eventually have to face up to the truth and admit that the "armed struggle" was shameful and wrong.
