In 1977, a spectre was haunting Straya - the spectre of PALESTINIAN TERRORISM. In those dark days only one and a half men understood the gravity of the threat of PALESTINIAN TERRORISM to Straya's way of life. And they knew just what to do - cut off its funding:
"When Tony Abbott and I were involved in the Australian Union of Students, this was a very extreme organisation. It sent money compulsorily collected from students to support the Palestine Liberation Organisation which was then engaged in acts of murderous terrorism... In 1977, Abbott and I drove down from Sydney to Melbourne to attend an AUS conference at Monash University... No doubt the silliest thing we did at the conference was to attend a Palestinian film night. Because AUS was spending our money, we wanted to assert... our right to be there. So we heckled the film a bit. Although we were outnumbered... the film was stopped and we were told we had to leave, We were making the point that we shouldn't have to leave because the evening was being funded by our compulsorily collected student union dues. One woman from the far Left came up behind Abbott, took off her wooden clog and whacked him over the back of the head..." (See my 13/9/12 post Greg & Tony Do Monash 1)
And 40 years later, nothing has changed!
Not only is the spectre of PALESTINIAN TERRORISM still haunting Straya, but only Tony Abbott (and greg sheridan) still understand the gravity of the threat of PALESTINIAN TERRORISM to Straya's way of life. And they still know just what to do - cut off its funding:
"Former prime minister Tony Abbott has called for Australia to cut its $40 million-a-year aid budget to the Palestinian Authority while 'it keeps paying pensions to terrorists and their families'." (Abbott urges cut in $40m aid to Palestinians, Greg Sheridan, The Australian, 2/1/16)
