Big challenge to Republicans

Within a few weeks of the IRA announcing its intention to disarm, the "Real IRA" has now warned of retaliation for the dirty ethnic cleansing going on in Ahoghill. Don't Loyalists realise what they're provoking? Quite apart form the fact that the Catholic residents have every right to live there, isn't it preferable to live alongside peaceable Catholics than to split Republicanism into myriads of uncontrollable splinter groups with the horrors of civil war that could follow? Get a grip.
Although Loyalists are the source of this problem, Republicanism needs to do a Big Thing and be very disciplined. It needs to take the moral high ground, keep its copybook clean and support the PSNI - however reluctantly - so that this evil hooliganism can be stopped and its perpetrators punished by law.

The Real IRA must be rubbing their hands together with glee at the minute...
