I was appalled to read about what happened to the Israeli ambassador. He had been invited to speak by a group of students in Trinity College but was denied the right to do so. If we were to apply that behaviour to other parts of the world, - for example, Northern Ireland, Colombia and other conflict regions - we would be shutting the door on dialogue and communications which, as we know, produce results in the end.
