    Default Ireland and Israel: Friends.

    The relationship between Israel and Ireland since the establishment of residential embassies has become increasingly close. Both countries are endowed with a well educated and dynamic workforce that is comprised of many young people with skills in a range of technical and specialised areas. Both countries have enjoyed strong economic growth driven by exports of hi-tech products and tourism and the US and EU are major markets for each of the countries. Israel and Ireland have also signed formal agreements, such as the agreement on the avoidance of double taxation, in order to facilitate elements of their relationship.

    Israel are our 7th largest trading partner


    Bilateral tourism has grown significantly between the two states. Flights operating regularly during the tourist season in Ireland bring thousand of Israelis to the country to witness first hand the Irish welcome "Cead Mile Failte" . Many Irish also visit Israel as tourists to tour the Holy sites and to experience the beauty of its rich architectural and cultural heritage.

    At the cultural level too there is much interest on both sides. In recent years Irish Music has become extremely popular in Israel. Israeli theatre companies visit regularly and Israeli films are featured occasionally in international film festivals across Ireland.

    Chaim Herzog, Israeli and Irishman: Chaim Herzog who was to become President of Israel, was born in Belfast Ireland on 10.9.1919.

    During his official visit to Israel (January 1999), An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern went to the Historical Museum at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust monument that gives testimony to the unparalleled violence which afflicted the Jewish people at the hands of Nazi Germany.

    Ireland and Israel: Friends.

    Let's show our support for Israel against the terrorist Iranian regime, they are a a threat to countries such as ourselves.

    What happened to the famed neutrality?
    We should be shaping an Ireland based on full respect for the human and civil rights of all our people, an Ireland of which Larkin and Connolly would be very proud.

    Ok, so let's hold hands then

    I take you didn't attend the Ireland v Israel game in Landsdowne road, where they had to ban Palestinian flags from the ground??!

    Ireland have a natural relationship with the Palestinians given our histroy of oppression and tyranny. Our ancestors were thrown from their land and brutally murdered for fighting back, something the Palestinians are living with on a regular basis.

    I despise Israel and all it stands for. But I do hope to see a settlement soon, where the Palestinians are allowed equal status in the land you refer to as Israel.

    The concept of countries being "friends" is childish.

    countries don't have friends, only interests.
