The anti Israeli squad where out in full force when it was suggested that Israel poisoned Yasser Arafat, ‘of course they are to blame’ etc etc. Now read the truth and take to social networking sites and admit you were wrong, I shouldn’t hold my breath, in
fact I feel safe in saying very few will even print the true findings. Read on: French forensic tests have concluded that former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat did not die of poisoning, as had been suggested by an earlier report, a source who saw the conclusions of the report said on Tuesday.
"The results of the analyses allow us to conclude that the death was not the result of poisoning," the source told Reuters, quoting from conclusions of a report by French forensic experts handed over to Arafat's widow Suha.
So as an Irish man how do my fellow countrymen see Israel: The relationship between Israel and Ireland since the establishment of residential embassies has become increasingly close. Both countries are endowed with a well educated and dynamic workforce that is comprised of many young people with skills in a range of technical and specialised areas. Both countries have enjoyed strong economic growth driven by exports of hi-tech products and tourism and the US and EU are major markets for each of the countries. Israel and Ireland have also signed formal agreements, such as the agreement on the avoidance of double taxation, in order to facilitate elements of their relationship.

Bilateral tourism has grown significantly between the two states. Flights operating regularly during the tourist season in Ireland bring thousand of Israelis to the country to witness first hand the Irish welcome "Cead Mile Failte" . Many Irish also visit Israel as tourists to tour the Holy sites and to experience the beauty of its rich architectural and cultural heritage.
At the cultural level too there is much interest on both sides. In recent years Irish Music has become extremely popular in Israel. Israeli theatre companies visit regularly and Israeli films are featured occasionally in international film festivals across Ireland.
