Israel calls on Ireland to follow US move to Jerusalem

https://www.rte.ie/news/2018/0514/96333 ... jerusalem/

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said Monday that the move “is inflaming already a very tense situation, and the relationship between Israelis and Palestinians.”
His Dutch counterpart, Stef Blok, said “we don’t consider it a wise decision to move the embassy.”
Their comments come after the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania blocked the full 28-nation European Union from publishing a statement about the U.S. move.

All illegal of course. They all contravened the Balfour Declaration November 1917 and had no authority.

His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

That was a little reminder for you.

the balfour declaration not the balfour law, and even if it had been a law, how would a british law apply to a US president?

on the subject of jerusalem, it seems there's a rule with eurovision that the winner hosts the contest  the following year, so eurovision 2019 will be in jerusalem, which will be fun.
Next year in Jerusalem
This year, for israel (and only israel), there was an order from Eurovision not to mention the capital (Jerusalem) in the voting phase.
So, "now we go to Rome for the votes of the Italian jury"
but "now we got to Israel for the votes of the Israeli jury"

I disagree. Eurovision shouldn't  be allowed to bully Israel like that. They ought to treat every country the same

Think it through, ppauper. And enough of that childish babble. 

Besides, it's the EU that decides;

Many UN member states formally adhere to the UN proposal that Jerusalem should have an international status, as outlined in General Assembly Resolution 181 (II).[7] The European Union has also followed the UN's lead in this regard, declaring Jerusalem's status to be that of a corpus separatum,
