A group of Jewish leaders had dinner with Prime Minister Kevin Rudd at The Lodge on Thursday.

ECAJ President Robert Goot

The President of the ECAJ today welcomed the initiative of the Prime Minister and the Minister for Foreign Affairs in inviting a group of Jewish leaders together with Members of Parliament Michael Danby and Mark Dreyfus QC, to the Lodge for discussions over dinner.

“The dinner was an important opportunity for those present to engage in a frank, friendly and constructive exchange. It was quite clear to all present that the Prime Minister and his Government remain fundamentally committed to and supportive of  Israel and the special relationship between Israel and Australia”, Mr Goot said.

“The meeting was both welcome and timely and the Prime Minister’s and Foreign Minister’s positive remarks on a number of new initiatives, gives us great confidence that the relationship between the Jewish community and the Government will continue to be close and co-operative as we focus on the future”, Mr Goot added.

    It’s very sad that the board of deputies are “In bed” with the left…For long hours and days we heard from them nothing or worse….The non Jewish politicians, G-D bless them, our friends spoke up and expressed their amazement that THEY have to defend Israel while all those who ARE BEING PAID TO DEFEND ISRAEL ARE SILENT!!!!????!!!!!

    You finally woke up?????

    Go Tony Abbot, next prime minister of Australia, good on you and Julie Bishop! G-D NEVER remains in debt! You and your opposition stood up for Jews and Israel, you’ll see, the election is already in your pocket! You can already get out the champane! Keep it up and G-D bless You all! G-d bless Australia!
