    "Clearly, however, when anyone feels hurt it is important to apologize and remove the problematic post" Born and raised a Catholic in Ireland I'd like to make it clear that I am feeling supremely "unhurt" by the embassy's Facebook post so no need to apologise fellah. Two observations: 1. the Embassy post is actually accurate. Some people may find it "hurtful" but it would be a brave Jew who'd venture into Palestinian territory without the protection of guns and steel. 2. Why is this even a story? For heavens sake Haaretz get a grip of that obsessive vendetta you guys have for the diplomatic mission in Dublin. Speaking as a local, someone on the ground, your Embassy in Dublin has, over the last year or two, made more progress in pushing back against anti Israel bias in Ireland, and in galvanising local pro Israel Irish people, than had been achieved over the last decade. That's something that deserves a lot of kudos and if you think it's easy you should come over and try it yourselves. Kindest Regards David
