Irish4Israel Hope To Intensify Their Activities & Seek Funding To Do So
In view of the shrill and egregious demonisation of Israel emanating from the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and the fact that the Irish President is no friend to the Jewish State, it’s great to learn (hat tip: reader Jill) that, thanks to young Irishman Barry Williams and the Irish4Israel organisation, a vigorous pro-Israel initiative is being mooted in the Emerald Isle.
In order to succeed in its aims, it’s seeking donations.
In Barry Williams’s own words:
“Irish4Israel began in 2010 as a social movement to defend Israel in Ireland,
We have now grown from 100 to over 2,250 followers on Facebook and 450 on Twitter.
We now wish to increase our activities and wish to place some bus shelter advertising around Ireland.
We will provide receipts and photographs of the project upon completion and look forward to you helping us.
If you have any questions please email us at irish4israelatyahoo.ie
We can also supply you with addition information.
