The conference he is attending in Ramallah commemorated al-Husseini, including the latter's pro-Nazi stance during the war.

A short while later Mr Mac Donncha announced that he was already in the Palestinian city of Ramallah, where he had been invited to attend a conference on the disputed status of Jerusalem.

Micheal Mac Donncha - a Sinn Fein councillor who was editor of An Phoblacht from 1990 to 1996 - participated in an Islamic conference about Jerusalem in Ramallah organised by the religious affairs adviser to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

Mac Donncha said he was unaware that he had been banned, and passed through immigration at the Tel Aviv airport because the ban order sent to immigration officials misspelled his name.


They also noted two recent votes of Dublin City Council to expel the Israeli ambassador and to support a boycott of the country. Its statement said that Israel expected a "public and formal" response from Ireland to his conduct.

The Israeli government refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and continues to build settlements in occupied areas, despite objections from the United Nations.

Israel ordered a probe Wednesday into how Mac Donncha was allowed into the country.

Israel's Interior Ministry later admitted that the mayor had entered Israel "due to a typo".
