How lucky are the constituents of these Victorian LABOR MPs, recently returned from AIJAC's Rambam Israel Fellowship Program propaganda tour of Israel:
Lizzie Blandthorn (referred to as a 'pro-life warrior' in the press and aligned with the Shortcon (Shorten/Conroy) faction of the ALP)
Colin Brooks (parliamentary secretary to the premier)
(Sir) Don Nardella (deputy speaker and dog lover extraordinaire)
Marsha Thomson (Parliamentary Friends of Israel co-convenor and 2013 rambamee)
For, in the words of AIJAC Executive Director Colin Rubenstein, these select individuals have been "expose[d]... to various aspects of Israel, and to the complexities of both Israel's and the Palestinians' situation..." (AIJAC welcomes MPs on their return from Israel, jwire.com, 14/5/16)
Their constituents will no doubt be champing at the bit, eager to have those "complexities" explained by those they voted for.
But wait - what's this?:
"The group came back with more questions than answers."
OK... so let me revise my last sentence, but one:
Their constituents will no doubt be champing at the bit, eager to hear the "questions" brought back by those they voted for.
