The statement issued by Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh does say that he confronted the Israeli Ambassador to Ireland, Zion Evrony, and Fine Gael TD Alan Shatter, the Dáil’s only Jewish TD, at a meeting of the Oireachtas Foreign Affairs Committee to discuss the situation in Gaza and Israel. But it neglects to mention what he actually said – according to the iol report.
..in a remarkable outburst, [Aengus Ó Snodaigh] likened their defence of the invasion to the arguments of Adolf Hitlers propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. “Goebbels would have been proud of the twisted logic and half-truths,” he said. Ambassador Evrony branded the remarks despicable and demanded an apology. “What I think overshadows the discussion was this despicable analogy of the deputy of Sinn Féin,” the ambassador said. “I think that… (there is a need) for members here to educate themselves and for this distinguished deputy to apologise.”
