Richard Boyd Barrett: ...place in the world to be a child is Gaza and the Palestinian territories, where the facts of the abuse, murder and imprisonment of children and the denial of basic rights, resources and supports by Israel in a cruel, calculated and deliberate way is simply shocking beyond belief. One Palestinian child has been killed every three days on average for the past 18 years by members of the...

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Human Rights Cases (21 Jun 2018)

Simon Coveney: ...whose basis was very unclear, for much of the period since April 2015. I understand that she is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which is an outlawed group in Israel and considered a terrorist group by the EU. However, no real and credible imputation of personal involvement in violent activities has been made against her. My view on this case, and on the...

United States Immigration Policy: Motion (20 Jun 2018)

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...as the Tánaiste and Taoiseach are concerned, it is okay to boycott the elected representatives of the Parliament in Gaza. The Tánaiste will say that it is a difficult and complicated situation, mention Israel and so on. He can give all the reasons he likes, but the Government is treating them differently from how it is treating Trump even though what he is doing is far worse...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Nursing Home Services (20 Jun 2018)

Colm Burke: ...with the Minister of State's Department, but I will again take back his message. There is a serious shortage, and it is interesting that it does not just apply to Ireland. For instance, Israel has a system whereby a person can be granted a five-year visa to come to the country to provide home care, and it is working well. We are running into the same problem here because we have full...

Seanad: Order of Business (20 Jun 2018)

David Norris: .... The latter is extremely regrettable. It is notable that four First Ladies, including President Trump's wife, have criticised this measure. It is also significant that the US cites criticism of Israel as one of the reasons for its withdrawal. Criticism of Israel is perfectly appropriate. More sinisterly, the Israeli Minister for Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy has issued a...

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Foreign Policy (19 Jun 2018)

Simon Coveney: ...community relating to de-colonisation. An abstention is consistent with the position Ireland has taken on previous ICJ referral resolutions, including in 2003 on the separation wall between Israel and the Palestinian Territory and in 2010 on Kosovo’s Unilateral Declaration of Independence. The ICJ Statute and the Court’s Rules of Procedure provide that the ICJ may...

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Middle East Issues (14 Jun 2018)

Simon Coveney: I am aware of the report in question, which my Department has examined. A key priority of the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy is to combat domestic or international criticism of, or pressure on, Israel, and in particular to combat support for boycott campaigns. Material produced by the Ministry should be evaluated against that background. The report makes...

Leo Varadkar: ...in neighbouring countries in the region, it would not be possible to have a Pride parade or for people to lead their normal lives. We should not forget that, notwithstanding the behaviour of the Israeli Government over the past decade or two. There are many people in Israel who share our values, that is, share values that are akin to those of a European liberal democracy. Many people in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach: European Union-Related Matters: Discussion with Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform (12 Jun 2018)

Paul Murphy: How does the Minister feel about European public moneys, including Irish moneys, ending up in the hands of Israeli armaments companies such as Elbit Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries, which has happened with EU moneys in the past? Under Horizon 2020, hundreds of millions of euro ended up in these companies. Does the Minister agree that should continue to happen?

Simon Coveney: ...the US announcement on moving its embassy to Jerusalem and we discussed the unambiguous negative impact this would have, as we made clear at the time. There was also an informal breakfast with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, which allowed for a useful and frank conversation. The level of EU unity in support of a two-state solution was notable. I used the opportunity to...

Seanad: Order of Business (30 May 2018)

David Norris: ...arrogance and impertinence of the American representative to the United Nations in raising, as a matter of urgency, the rather pathetic and amateurish flight of rockets that was sent by Hamas into Israel. As far as I know, no one has been injured or killed in any of these attacks. The rockets may have done some marginal damage. It is, of course, unpleasant. However, where is the sense...

Accordingly, it was discussed by Ministers in informal format over lunch.Many Ministers expressed their deep concern at the disproportionate use of force by Israel, and the appalling number of casualties.

Gino Kenny: ...sound but it will take political will to implement it. The people of Ireland have elected us as Deputies and I believe they demand that we compel the Government to do something about the State of Israel at the moment. Even today, Israel has announced 3,500 illegal houses in the West Bank. This morning I spoke to a doctor in Gaza who said the situation there is unspeakable, and it is...
