Israel-Gaza war: “Israeli Ambassador Dismisses Minister’s Controversial Remark on Palestinians Relocating to Ireland”

Dublin: Opposition parties Sinn Fein and People Before Profit have issued demands for the expulsion of Israel’s ambassador, Dana Erlich, in the wake of recent developments in Israel and Gaza. These events have significantly impacted the political landscape in Ireland.

The opposition parties have organised nationwide demonstrations in support of the Palestinian territory of Gaza. The accusation that the Irish government is harbouring terrorists from Palestine has gained traction, particularly after Israeli Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu’s allegations.

Eliyahu accused Palestinians of seeking refuge in Ireland or deserts, a statement that garnered international attention. Furthermore, there were claims that Ireland had contributed funding for the construction of certain tunnels.

When questioned about the possibility of a nuclear attack on Gaza, Eliyahu did not rule it out, saying, ‘It’s a possibility.’ He advocated for the reoccupation of the Gaza Strip and the establishment of Israeli settlements. When asked about the fate of the Palestinian people, he suggested they could move to Ireland or the deserts.

However, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later suspended Minister Amihai Eliyahu, clarifying that his statements were not in line with the government’s stance.”

Varadkar rejected the demand.
Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, who defended the opposition’s demand to expel the Israeli ambassador, has clarified the position of the Irish government in Parliament. However, during his visit to South Korea, Varadkar also said that Israel’s action is intensifying the retaliation.

On October 7th, the Israeli ambassador defended the bombing of Gaza in retaliation for Hamas’s incursion into Israel and the killing of 1,400 people. Following this, even President Michael D. Higgins accused the ambassador of spreading false information about the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Erlich said Israeli Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu’s comment last week that Palestinians should ‘go to Ireland or the desert’ was not Israel’s opinion.
