    Manus and Nauru are an absolute inhumane disgrace. Labor and the Libs are determined to retain these appalling UN-critcized concentration camps. The Greens pay weak lip service to remove them. Further, the Greens have fielded a young lass (Steph Hodgins-May) who knows how to gratuitously insult her Jewish constituents, including me, but nothing else.
    I have long sent repeated emails and PM to Mr Danby re Australia’s, Wilson – run concentration camps. But he has chosen to ignore all of my pleas to treat the refugees humanely!!!

    I was a Jewish refugee, first from Vienna in Feb 1939 (aged 2), followed by a near 2-year internment in Tatura concentration Camp #3 from 1940 to 1942….I still suffer posttaumatic events re that period of life plus the immediate aggressive anti-Semitic atmosphere into which I was released in Melbourne.

    I am appalled by Mr Danby’s ruthless, heartless and crude attitude towards the Manus and Nauru Refugees, and my voting in Melbourne Ports, in about an hour (O/S) will reflect Danby’s callous and arrogant attitude and Ms Hodgins-May inexperience and stupidity. Needless to say, Mr Dutton’s erudite comments have ruled out a high score for Mr Guest (Liberal).

    I have politely asked for an explanation of Greens policy on Israel/Palestine in the questions section of the Greens website without the courtesy of a response.

    My local candidate won’t talk to the community about her party’s policies.

    I guess I have to fall back on the Di Natale’s opposition to a Jewish State, Bandt’s claim that Israel was responsible for a “massacre” in the last war and that Hamas had no responsibility and Hodgin-May’s position that you can’t criticise the UN even if you’re pointing out that it singles out Israel for all responsibility and treats Hamas as boy scouts and appoints hopelessly conflicted people to head its enquiries.

    My conclusion is that The Greens are not sympathetic to Israel and the majority of Australia’s Jews who support its right to live in peace free from Palestinian missiles, suicide bombers, rock throwers, knife attackers and the like. This is most likely because they are pandering to the Arab lobby in seats that they would like to poll well in.

    As such, I call them out for a lack of integrity and honesty in dealing with the Jewish community and will be putting them last on my ballot paper.
