The recent revelation that the Irish Government  is considering purchasing millions of euros worth of bullets from Israel Military Industries is deeply shocking. We find it completely  inappropriate that the Irish State would purchase weapons  from a company that is intimately linked to the Israeli armed forces and  one  that supplies the means by which the war crimes documented by the Goldstone Report can be committed. Furthermore, we feel that at a time when Israel is facing unprecedented criticism for its  continued defiance of international law, such a purchase of arms would send entirely the wrong message to the Israeli state and the international community.

We call on the Irish Government to reconsider the possible granting of a contract by the Irish Defence Forces to Israel Military Industries.
