Mr Danby has written to Prime Minister Scott Morrison asking that he offer one of Australia ’s premium venues to host the Asian preparations for the Paralympics.

“The IPC has no right awarding premium sporting events to Malaysia and other countries that discriminate against Israeli Athletes, “Mr Danby said

“Taking out your anti – Jewish bigotry on Paralympic athletes is pathetic, “Danby said

“Blatant Anti-Semitism and discrimination in sport, as in every field of life is despicable and Malaysia has no right to be hosting such a premium event” Mr Danby added

“I call on Scott Morrison to offer one of our excellent Australian sporting venues instead, where swimmers of all faiths and nationalities will be welcome to attend, without discrimination, including both Malaysians and Israelis”

    Way to go Mr. Michael Danby.

    Well said, Michael! Your concern for human rights will be missed from parliament when you retire. And what a contrast to the roaring silence of the virtue signallers who loudly protest at the denial of human rights – real or hypostesised – but lose their voice when the issue concerns Israelis.
