Over the past number of years hundreds of Irish people have visited Palestine to see for themselves the reality on the ground for the Palestinian people as they struggle for survival under the Israel’s brutal military occupation, enduring frequent war crimes, flagrant international law violations and severe human rights abuses. Many of these visitors have been well known-public figures, and we are honoured to host this discussion featuring four of these prominent people – and encourage you to come along to hear from them. It is clear that Israel so fears such first-hand accounts that it has started banning Irish people ( http://www.ipsc.ie/press-releases/take-action-israel-is...-govt ) from entering Palestine .
