Mike Baird: Next Year in Jerusalem

Just an update on NSW Premier Mike (Messiah) Baird, the company he keeps, and that bizarre pre-election promise about visiting Israel. (And why do I have to update you on these matters? Because the msm doesn't/won't go there):

"More than 600 have joined in a belated celebration of Israel's 67th birthday in Sydney (organised by the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and the Zionist Council of NSW) in which Baird was the guest of honour. In his speech he said: 'I'm honoured to join the Jewish community in celebrating the success of the State of Israel this Independence Day and I wish the people of Israel stability and a lasting peace on this national day of celebration. One of the first election commitments I made after becoming Premier was to visit Israel, and I'm pleased to announce I will be headed there next year. Our diplomatic relationship with Israel is helped greatly by our cultural and business links within Sydney's Jewish community and I look forward to visiting next year. Friends celebrate milestones and are engaged in each other's history and culture, which is why next year I am going to celebrate Independence Day in Jerusalem.'... The event was attended by a plethora of diplomats, politicians and interfaith identities. Among the specially invited guests... was NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione." (Yom Ha'azmaut* celebrated in Sydney,, 8/5/15)

Questions arising:

Diplomats? Who?  

Politicians? Let me guess.  

Interfaith identities? Now who might they be?  

Andrew Scipione? Why???
