  1. Shalom and welcome to Israel from Northern Ireland Friends of Israel – http://www.nifi.org.uk

    We wish you good luck and success in your new position – would welcome your reflection about relations between the Republic and Israel – as its often the subject of headlines and blogs in both countries. What can you tell us about what is going on underneath the headlines.

    Also I would be grateful for the Irish government’s view on the call by the Teachers Union of Ireland in February 2013 for a boycott of Israeli scientists and academics and for Israeli students to be banned from educational visits to the Republic.

    Many thanks
