Travel industry sources say few Israelis have canceled but few are making new reservations. If they’re flying to Europe, it’s to the east.09:38 28.11.15 | 0 comments
Some of your posters seem to be under the misapprehension that the British and the Irish governments and peoples have to prove anything. All that is required is that they believe or suspect. No one is going to be sued. Others are dismissive of the impact of the affair on diplomatic relations. The crux of the matter as far as Ireland and the others are concerned is the abuse of their passports. It is difficult to think of a country, possibly aside from your own, where holding an Irish passport might be a disadvantage. The current affair puts that in jeopardy. It also puts genuine Irish citizens in danger. It ill behooves your posters to be dismissive of these concerns. The Irish are cursed with long memories, and the other four countries (including Austria - provenance of the phone SIMS) would also take a dim view. Trade agreements eventually come up for review or renewal. Maybe at some time in the future Israel will see advantage in joining the EU..... .
