Send in the Clowns

Murdoch's campaign to head off a move to ban rambamming at this month's NSW Labor conference grinds on:

"Former labor national president Warren Mundine has launched a blistering attack on the party, saying its move to ban sponsored trips to Israel is 'verging on anti-Semitic' and is 'sickening to watch'." (Anti-Jew Labor bid 'sickens' Mundine, Sharri Markson, The Australian, 2/2/16)

Seriously, does anyone really care what Gerald Gollum Henderson's twice-rambammed (2006/2009) son-in-law, who deserted Labor in 2012 to join Abbott's Indigenous Advisory Council, thinks?

I mean, what are we to make of a bloke with supposed expertise on indigenous issues in Australia, who  emerges from the woodwork on occasions like this for a froth & bubble defence of the apartheid state in occupied Palestine? Talk about sickening to watch!

Then there's this numbers man:

"The NSW ALP international relations policy committee chairman Michael Forshaw told The Australian yesterday that 39 resolutions had been received concerning Israel and Palestine, compared with 17 resolutions dealing with other international issues, such as the Syrian war, the Myanmar junta, Paris terror bombings, China free trade and foreign aid. There were none on Saudi Arabia or Iran." (ibid)

39 to 17?

It couldn't possibly be because, unlike all the other issues, Palestine dates back to 1917, now could it?

Finally, we have 'Senior Writer' (LOL) Sharri Markson "commenting" that:

"The NSW branch of the Labor party should be focusing on refining its health, education and transport policies before it begins to get involved in the Middle East."  (Racist views pushing ALP's stand on Israel)

Followed by this rider: "Sharri Markson last year travelled to Israel with the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council."

Sickening, eh?
