This is Micheal Martin jumping on the most populist, left-wing bandwagon he can find. He truly is the worst, and least electorally successful, leader in the long history of Fianna Fáil. Whatever will please The Irish Times and the nauseating plethora of fashionable, Left-wing NGOs operating in Ireland is enough to motivate the awful Martin.

Apart from the fact that Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East, having respect not only for women but also for the adherents of all three Abrahamic religions which see modern-day Israel as their Holy Land, good relations with Israel are also important for Ireland to maintain (or re-establish?) because so many Irish people travel to Israel on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The unwise and short-sighted actions of Micheal Martin undermine, and put at risk, this aspiration of many Irish people. Shame on him.
