    Ireland has always been suspect in Israel's eye because they never had it in their pocket. Too many Irish human rights workers live in the occupied territories and see the day to day effects of the occupation. The arguments we hear coming out of Israel currently are strikingly similar to those coming from South Africa when nations began their boycotts and recognition of the ANC. The international community has been very patient with Israel over the past decades but they clearly see now that they have no interest in peace but rather they are all about demographics and land expropriation. They recognise that all their talk of a negotiated settlement is made impossible by their actions on the ground and their long term strategy. Ireland, along with the rest of EU strongly recognises the need for a negotiated settlement but they recognise too that that is not Israel's objective. Now, let's read the vitrol we will hear from these zionist apologists calling Ireland every name in the book and calling for a boycott against tourism to Ireland.
