Letters to the editor
Dear Mr. Garcetti,
I am not sure what there is to smile about. Ireland is probably one of the world's most anti-Semitic country after the Arab countries.
Ireland was one of the first to recognize the so-called "Palestinian State". Moreover, Ireland banned Israeli products and had intentions to jail those who buy goods
coming from what they claim are "occupied territories".
On April 9, 2018, Dublin City Council became the first European capital to vote IN FAVOR of a resolution endorsing the BDS.
Ireland also provides $12M a year to the Palestinian organization which then pays terrorists or their families when they have killed Jews.
The Prime Minister should encourage his citizens to visit Palestine so they can witness first-hand how horribly the LGBTQ community is treated and then visit Tel-Aviv to see how these people are embraced, welcomed, and treated equally and with respect.
While Ireland's Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Eric Varadkar appears to act against the pro-Palestinian groups, obviously he is not doing a very good job...(see below) "in late January 2019 in the Lower House (Dáil) 75-45 in favor of boycott Israel."
Also, remember that the US Senate and the President have made it very clear that there will be significant consequences should Ireland continue in this direction.

MAYOR GARCETTI JOINS IRISH P
TO OPEN NEW CONSULATE IN LOS ANGELES
Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Prime Minister of Ireland, today to inaugurate the opening of a new Irish Consulate in Los Angeles.
The consulate in Los Angeles will serve the large Irish diaspora in the region, promote cultural understanding, and support business and investment. The L.A. region is home to over 380,000 Irish Americans, the second largest Irish population in the United States. Los Angeles hosts the third largest consular corps in the world, a sign of the city’s determination to remain connected to the rest of the globe and engaged in the work of international diplomacy and cooperation.
