Irish facebook page decries Jewish 'invasion' of town

A Facebook page noting increased presence of Orthodox Jews in the Irish town of Midleton appeared online earlier this week, using words and images that could easily be construed as anti-Semitic.
The page titled "The invasion of Jews in midleton" has already received 384 "Likes" from members of the popular social networking site.
Midleton is a town 22km east of the Irish city of Cork, which has had a Jewish population since a wave of immigrants arrived in the late 19th century from Eastern Europe.
The page photo has a picture of an ultra-Orthodox Jew bending down in an awkward position in the street with the caption "Jew Jitsu." The page administrator also added a video post to the page of British-Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in character as anti-Semitic reporter Borat singing the song "Throw the Jew Down the Well."
