Has Christine Milne Been Rambammed?
"Australian Greens leader Senator Christine Milne has argued in Parliament that retaining Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act is essential to curb the activities of Holocaust deniers such as Fredrick Toben... In the Senate last week, Milne said... 'I have stood at the Dachau concentration camp. I have been to the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem'... Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ) president Robert Goot said Milne's speech 'movingly articulated the importance of section 18C of the RDA'. He added that her trips to Yad Vashem and Dachau 'demonstrate her desire to understand the darkest chapter in human history'." (Toben 'deeply invested' in repeal of 18C: Milne, The Australian Jewish News, 27/6/14)
