Israel probing how pro-boycott Irish mayor came despite ban

Israel probing how pro-boycott Irish mayor came despite ban

Mr Mac Donncha attended an Islamic conference about Jerusalem in Ramallah organised by the religious affairs adviser to Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president.

The ministry said in a statement that Israel expresses its "deep disappointment and shock" over the incident.

MacDonncha, however, was already in Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank, having flow in through Tel Aviv airport.

Israeli daily Haaretz said the ban order sent to airport immigration officials misspelled Mac Donncha's name and he did not therefore show up on the watch list.

The device has a 720p camera sensor that can record at 30fps and the video doorbell provides two-way audio. The aggressive pricing is a move against the recently introduced Nest Hello video doorbell .

"This is especially disturbing when taken in context with the timing of the event - the week during which Israel marks the Holocaust", the MFA said. The conference he is attending in Ramallah commemorated al-Husseini, including the latter's pro-Nazi stance during the war.

The fate of the holy city is at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Dublin County Council has passed two anti-Israel resolutions recently one calling for the expulsion of Israel's ambassador to Ireland after several Gazans were killed by the Israeli military during protests. Israel expects a "public and formal" response from Ireland, it said. Israel had aimed to block his entry because of his support for the BDS movement that advocates boycotts against it.

Mr Mac Donncha has criticised Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
