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.

Ok, so let's hold hands then :lol:

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.

What would you know about it, you have never lived in Ireland,, you are another angry young british muslim, and judging by your spelling and grammar it is clear you were a recipient of free (sub-standard) british education.

The Irish also have a natural affinity with the Jews, both have a diaspora spread the world over, both have had their homeland occupied and pillaged throughout history, both have suffered from great atrocities resulting in massive losses in population, both have a close relationship with both the EU and US etc etc

Who's this 'we'?

I'm Irish and don't really have a lot of time for a land-grabbing theocracy which systematically abuses human rights.

If you do, super, but I don't know where your authority comes from that you can say that Ireland and Israel are 'friends'

Yeah but also you could argue that historically we had a lot in common with the Jews, immigrants, discriminated against and the victims of acts of genocide, dispossessed of their land to which we had an ancient claim. Up until the last 50 years we would I believe have more in common with the Jewish people than then Palestinian but the brutal approach of the Israeli state with its colonial resonances has turned Irish people against them and overshadowed this underlining affinity.

You sound like a possessive Girlfriend, we've got lots in common :D Let's make love!

And alliance, despite your name, you are a unionist, so your views are pretty much worthless.

When you kick with both feet, your likely to fall :lol:

With all due respect, as a previous poster already pointed out, we are not friends, we just share common interests.
Now get out and make some real friends and stop convincing yourself the State of Israel is your "friend"!
