Erdan explodes the progress of the British "alignment" of the Irish Senate

Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan (Likud) was sacked by the Irish Senate on Wednesday after proposing a law banning Israeli "settlement" deals in the country.

"This proposal is embarrassing for Ireland and has been hindered by anti-Semitism," said Erdan. "The Irish Senate today has given windshields to prominent boycott organizations that have links with terrorist organizations and cynically use the term" human rights "to spread hatred and deepen conflict.

"If the law is adopted, we will be working to expose all of our motives and impulses, and we will also act in order to legally prevent its implementation in accordance with the laws of international trade and in accordance with US legislation," he added.

The upper house of the Irish Parliament voted 28-14 on Wednesday.

This was the third and final vote of the Senate on the measure called Control of Economic Activities (Assembled Territories), Proposal 2018, which states that "it will be a misdemeanor for a person to sell or attempt to sell settlement goods" or to help sell such a goods or services.

The so-called "Bill of Occupied Territories" is promoted by Irish Senator Frances Black. The discussion on the bill in the Irish Senate was postponed in January after Irish Ambassador to Israel Alison Kelly was invited to a meeting in the Foreign Ministry to clarify the legislative initiative.

However, the account was returned to the table in July.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu condemned the initiative, saying that the proposed legislation was "to support the BDS movement and damage the state of Israel".
