One Response to “Dear Tony…”
  1. Liat Nagar says:

    I wrote to ‘The Australian’ newspaper, which printed an article especially composed for comment on ‘Foreign responses’ to the Martin Place siege (even mentioning a tweet from Queen Rania of Jordan), but no mention of Netanyahu’s spoken and written words, or of the fact that Israel Defence Minister, Moshe Ya’alon, had offered Australian authorities concrete assistance. I also complained to ABC television News about their not airing same, and yet making a fuss of a small email from India’s Prime Minister Modi – in fact the next night they showed Netanyahu speaking in Hebrew about the siege.

    As far as places cited by the media where terrorism had taken place, examples of Bali, London, Spain and the Boston Marathon were given, but no mention of Israel, where such acts have been taking place for 66 years. I suggested that Israel had been left out as an example due to political considerations in regard to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, and pointed out that civilian death at the hands of terrorism was the same no matter the circumstances.
