Federal Labor Member of Parliament Michael Danby awaits comments from Middle East correspondents following the expulsion from Australia of Syrian diplomats…

Michael Danby

He writes: “Where are the hypocrites from the far left and NSW Greens? Where are the demonstrators and anti Israel boycotters as Assad approaches 10,000 dead? Syrian events underscore that Israel is an economically flourishing and democratically vibrant contrast to intolerant hellholes like Iran and Syria.  Australian Middle East  correspondents like Ann Barker(ABC) John Lyons(The Australian)  Ruth Pollard(The Age) constant  critique of Israel should be seen in the context of the awful violent regimes of the Middle East region” .

    Oh dear, Ben is back. Instead of addressing the content of the article pertaining to Syrian massacres, executions and atrocities, he diverges on his all too familiar anti-Semite, anti-Israel diatribe tangent.

      Hello Alex

      What is the content of Danby’s message? There is no doubt about the massacres and no one is opposing the expulsion of the diplomats, not the correspondents named, so far as I know. Unlie Israel, Syria does not have a lobby of Australian citizens in Parliament serving its propoganda purposes and no one has raised a cry of “anti-Arabism” against the decision.. Australians are campaigning against Assad and demanding he stop the killings – perhaps you are not aware of the campaigns.
      By the way I understand there are some rules about postings “Anti-semite” is probably not among them.

        Hello Alex you don’t seem to see through Danby’s lies. Juist make a simple search for Ruth Pollard and you will find at least four recent reports on the massacres in Syria.

  2. Ben says:

    IS Danby advocating protests against the expulsion ? Presumably, he has protested against the expulsion of an Israeli diplomat.

    MIchael you should also be asking where are all the usual Jewish Israel bashers the lefty Human rights lawyers, Academics , journalists etc who cant write enough letters, sign enough petitions join Palestinian lobby groups in criticizing Israels every move, haven’t heard one bleep out of any of these hypocrites about Syria….

    Kol Ha Kavod Michael !

    Burdy.

    Danby is probably not aware of the Anti-Assad rallies being held in Australia. And Israel is a flourishing democracy – increasingly fascist actually – only for the Askhenazi Jews. Mizrachi aare second class, African Jews lower and Palestinins the lowest. Danby is usingg Assad’s crimes to jusify israel’s behaviour, he is well aware that Jewish settlers in the West Bank live under civil rule while the Palestinins live under military rule.
