You say "Go ahead and name one tangible benefit for Australia from this relationship" with Israel. Well let's see, there's the statue built to honour the Australian light horsemen in Beersheva. There's General Monash (he was Jew you know Rich) who lead Aussie troops to their greatest victory & had 300,000 Aussies at his funeral. There is the Yad V'Shem records in Jerusalem that honour the relatives of the many holocaust survivors living in Oz. There is Aussie Common Law based on Judaeo-Christian ethics that originate from Israel. By the way, what have you done for Australia, Rich?
