Northern Ireland’s First Minister alarmed at a local council resolving to shun Israeli Jewish culture and learning.

 

Mrs Foster said: “I was alarmed to see the motion in relation to Israel that was put forward in that council, particularly at a time when Jews in Belfast — we are told this by the rabbi — are feeling very intimidated and under attack.”.

“The council should reflect on that. We have heard a lot from other parties in the Assembly about equality and non-discrimination and about making sure that everybody feels at home in Northern Ireland. What about the Jewish people?”

“Do they not have a right to feel at home in Northern Ireland as well? They are very welcome and they are a very key part of the community here in Northern Ireland.”
