Payback is a bitch: Australia abandons Israel in UN vote

At a vote in the UN General Assembly - where Australia has been one of Israel's strongest supporters - the government abstained from a resolution demanding that Israel and the Palestinians investigate possible war crimes during the assault on Gaza that Israel began in December 2008.

  1. Until a blizzard of character assassination and charges of anti-Semitism

    Coinicidentally, we had our first (rather) cold day today...It's all coming together I'm afraid..

  3. Australian media continue to drag Israel down to where she belongs

    Jerusalem has lost friends” is the headline on this Age story:
    This vote is clearly an act of retaliation by Australia – and by Britain, France and Germany. Israel has lost friends thanks to the sordid affair in Dubai concerning fake passports and murder, and the stink will hang in the air a good while yet.
    Australia has made a calculated switch away from backing Israel’s complaints about bias in the United Nations system. Don’t be fooled. There are plenty of gripes about how Israel is unfairly targeted in the UN, but Tel Aviv takes these votes very seriously and lobbies hard to win countries to its side.
    Now Israel has lost key supporters. In New York on Friday night, Australia abstained from a resolution calling for further investigation of the 2009 Gaza conflict and war crimes allegations. Not so long ago Australia was one of 17 countries to join Israel to vote against a similar resolution. The message is clear.

  4. Looks like the Australians care about the Palestinians.

  5. What, tgia, are you blaming the weather on the Jews too?  lol

  6. Yes Molly..and as  my eyes are badly hurting nowadays I suspect Jews have manipulated my computer screen  to keep me away from blogging..

  7. They would care if they knew what's going on but they hardly know anything..Few do.
