Why Australia Supports Israel’s Oppression of the Palestinians
Excellent article by Antony Loewenstein detailing Australia’s terrible record of support of Israel despite blatant human rights abuses and the illegality of their actions. All the more reason why Australians need to actively pressure their politicians. Australia’s policies in relation to Israel adversely affect the lives of Palestinians.
“Australia is almost unique globally in its consistent support for Israel in diplomatic forums like the United Nations.”
Why is this the case? Why does the Australian government have an opinion regarding Israel that differs from almost every other country?
