The prime minister stated that he was the one who instructed the Foreign Ministry to turn to Ireland's ambassador to Israel and seek clarification regarding Donncha's participation in the event. The conference he is attending in Ramallah commemorated al-Husseini, including the latter's pro-Nazi stance during the war. They also voted to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement aimed at Israel.

Israel had tried to block him entering via its airports; however, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that this failed because the authorities misspelled his name.

The Israeli statement quoted Radian-Gordon as saying Mac Donncha's Ramallah visit was "particularly jarring" as it took place on Holocaust remembrance day, which Israel marked from sunset Wednesday.

Deri says upon his departure Mac Donncha will be notified that he won't be allowed back.

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