Defence Forces Operations: Motion (Resumed) (13 Jul 2017)

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...it seriously endangered them. On 23 September 2014 I challenged then Minister, Deputy Coveney, about pulling our troops out of that type of situation. I had said that putting our troops in behind the Israeli side of the separation zone in the Golan Heights would lead the troops into potential danger from some of the militant groups in the area. This is what then Minister for Defence,...

Select Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Framework Agreement between European Union and Republic of the Philippines: Motion (13 Jul 2017) See 1 other result from this debate

Seán Crowe: ...with that state. The human rights provisions in the agreement will not be enacted by the Union. Why do I say that? We have similar agreements with other countries such as Colombia, Morocco and Israel. People are being picked off one by one in Colombia because of their background while, with regard to Israel, war crimes were committed in Gaza and 2,700 people were killed. People were...

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Middle East Peace Process (13 Jul 2017)

Simon Coveney: I propose to take Questions Nos. 370 and 380 together. I am currently visiting Israel and Palestine, meeting with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, UN bodies including OCHA, and others, in order to discuss these and other issues. I will report fully on my visit later. However, it is important to address one point that has been raised in the Israeli and Irish media in the context of my visit....

Darragh O'Brien: ...to ensure that Irish Aid funding effectively reaches those in need. In light of Prime Minister Netanyahu's comments yesterday, when he asked why Ireland helps NGOs that call for the destruction of Israel and why it does not condemn the Palestinians for incitement and glorification of terrorists, will the Taoiseach reject without reservation Prime Minister Netanyahu's accusations against...

Srebrenica: Statements (11 Jul 2017)

Richard Boyd Barrett: ..., with Russian support, of its own people. However, we remain silent when it is western allies that are encouraging similar obscenities and atrocities. We fail to speak up about how, for example, Israel, al-Qaeda and Turkey are manipulating the situation in Syria and are even threatening the safety of our troops in the buffer zone in the Golan Heights. We do not speak loudly about how...

Other Questions: Defence Forces Deployment (11 Jul 2017) See 7 other results from this debate

Mick Wallace: The rationale behind the original UNDOF deployment to the Golan Heights in 1974 was to maintain the ceasefire between the Israeli and Syrian forces and to supervise the implementation of the disengagement agreement. Today, we are facilitating the ongoing illegal occupation of the Golan Heights by Israel. The Israeli Government recently called for an increase in settlements by 100,000 over...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Pre-legislative Scrutiny of the General Scheme of the Broadcasting (Amendment) Bill 2017 and Retransmission Fees: Discussion (11 Jul 2017)

...here in Ireland? We are a nation of storytellers, we tell great stories and it is a shame that, because of funding, we are not really able to compete on the same level as the likes of Denmark and Israel, which have made really determined and concerted efforts to build that sector, as has the UK. Anything that will help us in this regard is welcome, and we are certainly looking at the...

He is visiting Israel and Palestine at present. Consideration was given to adding Egypt to that visit but it was not possible to organise meetings at a sufficiently high level to make the meetings...

Seanad: Order of Business (11 Jul 2017)

Jerry Buttimer: ...where no alcohol is sold is something that we might look at as a society. I appreciate Senator Black has been a champion in this House of alternatives to alcohol. The Minister, Deputy Coveney, is in Israel this week and is not available but I would be happy to have that debate as soon as possible. Senator Kieran O'Donnell raised the motor insurance industry. He made a good point that...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (5 Jul 2017)

Mary Lou McDonald: ...of the Atlantic about many of the policies and strategies being pursued by the Trump Administration. Immigration has been mentioned and we could speak about the partisan White House approach to Israel. Climate change is also on the long list. I should also say that Sinn Féin, unlike other political parties, has considerable party engagement in the United States.

Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Middle East Issues (4 Jul 2017)

Simon Coveney: Israel is not the primary actor in this dispute over electricity supplies to Gaza, which is principally one between the Palestinian Authority and the de facto Hamas authorities in Gaza, who still control the Strip. For some years Hamas has charged customers in Gaza for electricity supplied from Israel, but refused to pass these revenues to the Palestinian Authority, which pays Israel to...

European Council: Statements (28 Jun 2017)

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...of the occupation and we usually look at the political effects. The World Bank compiled a report on the economic effects of occupation. Is Palestine being considered at all by the EU? In the Quartet roadmap, Israel agreed to halt settlement activity prior to negotiations. However, neither the EU nor the UN has insisted on that. I have not even mentioned Gaza. People need to come to...

To ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade if his attention has been drawn to Israel's decision to reduce the supply of electricity to Gaza and that the reduction of electricity supplied by Israel to Gaza will cause a certain worsening of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza; and if he will urgently raise his objection to the reduction of this fundamental supply with his Israeli...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: General Scheme of Data Protection Bill 2017: Discussion (14 Jun 2017)

...Commission decision. We have heard about this in the past with regard to the safe harbour decision and, more recently, the privacy shield. Adequacy decisions already exist for Canada, New Zealand, Israel and numerous other third countries.
