I'm not positive if this is the right forum, but anyway;
The below link is a popular article on the JP website on the implications for Israel on Ireland takling the EU presidency.
Eamon Gilmore gets namechecked quite a bit.
On a lighter note, take some time to read the readers comments below the article. We're one and the same as the Nazi's, it appears. Israel is also disturbingly familiar with Limerick, too.
Meriwether's commentary on this [in the style of factual, moderator compliant technique]: Its interesting to nore that Israel is paying more and more attention to the opinions the international community is holding on its domestic policies. Following on from UNESCO/Observor status and the new settlement push, hopefully Netanyhu may attribute some value to the necessity of having a respected standing internationally.
