By The Journal.ie.. Former Justice Minister Alan Shatter accused Fianna Fáil of ‘losing their moral compass’ by supporting the Bill. Independent Senator Frances Black has defended her proposed new law which will prohibit Ireland from trading in goods and services from the Israeli-occupied territories. Former Justice Minister Alan Shatter took to Twitter today (July 10, 2018) to slam the proposed legislation. He accused Fianna Fáil of “losing their moral compass” by supporting the Bill, which is due to be voted on in the Dáil next week and which is certain to pass due to the support from the party. [Picture top right: Christians for Israel International].  Shatter asked whether the Bill “is just an anti-Semitic measure” and criticised both Black and the Sinn Féin party, which is also supporting the measure.

He also asked whether the legislation will also apply to goods produced in places such as Russia-occupied Crimea and China-occupied Tibet.

The Bill does not mention Israel or Palestine, but instead prohibits “the import and sales of goods, services and natural resources originating in illegal settlements in occupied territories”. Read the full story.
