Hm... this bloke seems to have quite an interest in Sydney's Nakba Day rally and march, and matters pertaining thereto such as "the streets of Sydney." How very, very interesting:
"Vic Alhadeff, the CEO of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies told J-Wire: 'As Australians, we should not be importing overseas conflicts onto the streets of Sydney. But there is a tragedy today, and it is that when the Jewish world accepted the State of Israel as decreed by the UN 64 years ago, the Arab world did not do the same. If it had, we would be celebrating a state of Palestine today which was 64 years old, just as Israel is. Isn't it time we all moved on and explored ways to advance peace instead of dwelling on the past?" (Al-Naqba [sic] commemorative rally & march on, Henry Benjamin, 14/5/12)
Coming, as it does, from one whose every waking moment involves "importing" stuff and nonsense about a certain trigger-happy apartheid state into our legislatures, media outlets, and even schools, this comment is rich beyond a Lotto winner's wildest dreams.
For a start, is Alhadeff's comment not a clear cut case of Nakba denial?
Forget crime against humanity, ethnic cleansing and the wholesale theft of homes, lands and assets, Alhadeff can't even concede that what happened to the Palestinians in 1948-1949 was "a tragedy," so great would be the resulting cognitive dissonance.
Then we have something labelled "the Jewish world" - whatever that is - gratefully "accepting" what the Alhadeffs of the time - 1947 - arrogantly considered their birthright, namely, 56% of someone else's country!
And, although UN General Assembly resolutions, including the infamous resolution 181 which proposed in 1947 that 56% of Palestine become a 'Jewish' state, are only recommendations, for your Alhadeffs they're actually "decrees" from on high - unless, of course, if they call on Israel to do what it doesn't want to do, like GA resolution 194 which calls for the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes in 'Israel'.
Now since your Alhadeffs are so enamoured of that 64-year-old UN "decree" partitioning Palestine, you'd think that, even though the Palestinians didn't gratefully "accept" the White Man's Club in New York handing over most of their ancestral homeland to the Alhadeffs in 1947, the Alhadeffs would be only too happy to hand back 45% of Palestine/Israel for an 'Arab' state. But no, for all their talk about how hot resolution 181 was back in '47, well, 64 years on, the poor old dear's sort of lost her charm, know what I mean?
Finally, your Alhadeffs may well tell Palestinians to "move on" and stop "dwelling on the past," but just you try telling one of them to "move on" from the Holocaust, let alone the Kingdoms of David and Solomon, and your blood won't be worth bottling.
