How the Irish View the Israel-Palestinian Conflict

In his debut documentary, Ithamar Handelman Smith captures the vociferous − albeit not surprising − views of Northern Ireland’s Protestants and Catholics with respect to the situation of Palestinians in Israel.

In the first part of the documentary "Shalom Belfast?" the filmmaker Ithamar Handelman Smith comes to visit what he calls two of the shadier pubs in Belfast. Alongside the flags of the United Kingdom and of Northern Ireland, a number of Israeli flags are on display. They seem to generate great enthusiasm from the patrons.
