Irish civil society calls for boycott of Israel

A letter signed by 300 Irish civil society figures was published in a full-page ad that appeared in the 31 January 2009 edition of The Irish Times. The undersigned stated, "The occupation can end if political and economic pressure is placed on Israel by the international community. Recognizing this, the Palestinian people continually call on the international community to intervene." [Palestine]
