Should realize that Carr didn't say anything that many Israeli
politicians, academics and journalists haven't said before him. Don't
conflate support for the self-defeating settlement enterprise with being
pro-Israel. And don't conflate allies calling you out as contempt for
Israel. And the expulsion of the Israeli in the wake of Israel illegally
using an Australian official government document (a passport) was fully
understandable and justifiable. The notion that Rudd was anti-Israel and
now everything is okay because world power Australia is now represented
by the Liberals is ridiculous.
Kevin Rudd in Australia nearly triped up Gordon Brown to condem Israel
and voted against Israel at the U.N . Then when he was replaced by Julia
Gillard he backed Bob Carr to vote again in the U.N . against Israel she
tried her best short of getting kicked out by her party she was able to
get them to abstain.So the Labor Party of Australia was no friend of
Israel this time. Oh also the Liberal/Conservative government but in a
order from Israel which Kevin Rudds Labor party canceled for drones .
Kevin Rudd basically was two faced. The other party Israel needs to be
VERY CAREFULL of is the GREENS PARTY there the people trying to
organise boycotts BDS .
