Amazing Synchronicity

I've just finished watching the British satire The Trial of Tony Blair on ABC television. Set in 2010, and based on the idea of Blair being brought to justice on a charge of war crimes after standing down as prime minister, it was first screened on Britain's Channel 4 on 15 January 2007. That's right, over 2 bloody years ago! Yet everything for a reason, I suppose. You see, with Gaza currently under Israeli bombardment, I was struck by the amazing synchronicity of these lines:-

Cherie: We're hated by 250 million Arabs.
Tony : At least we're not being bombed by the Israelis!

You will remember that after reading your postings I sent letter to the SMH and also a complaint to the press council last week about Paul Sheehan.

We have achieved a tiny victory.

Here within his piece today, entitled 'Obama is walking a high wire', hidden in the second last paragraph is the statement :

"I had a briefing with Toameh in November, though can claim no credit for finding him. It was part of a study tour for Australian journalists to Israel, sponsored by the Jewish Board of Deputies which was omitted from my column last week."

Hopefully now, anyone reading his crap will know where he is coming from.

Thank you for keeping us informed.
