HAMAS & THE PALESTINIANS: WESTERN LEADERS ARE LYING

Western leaders, including those of Australia and most recently the President of the United States like to say that Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people, who are suffering because of it. This is totally misleading and ignores the reality that most Palestinians support the actions of Hamas. After every terrorist act that and is in the murder of Jews, including the 1,200 Jews who were brutally raped, tortured, murdered and kidnapped on October 7, there is dancing and jubilation amongst the Palestinians. Arabs are brought up to hate Jews. In the Palestinian population this begins in kindergarten and continues right throughout their schooling, with children being indoctrinated to hate and to kill Jews. This educational is funded by the West and occurs through UNRWA run schools. Summer camps are training grounds for terrorist activities and murdering Jews. Turning a blind eye to this, the West feeds the anti-Semitism that is now spreading around the world. The following chart gives a true indication of what is happening, showing the enormous support that Hamas has amongst Palestinians.

NAZISM SPREADS ACROSS THE WORLD

Anti-Semitism continues its march across the world, encouraged by governments. In Melbourne, Australia, during Council voting for an anti-Semitic resolution, a mob of 200 people outside the Town Hall started beating up Jews who had come to voice their concern to the Council. Police arrested the Jewish victims for inciting public disorder by being present on the street. None of the mob were arrested. Jewish artists and actors have been de-platformed from arts festivals in Perth and Sydney, while Melbourne’s well known Malt House Theatre has invited one of the most rabbit anti-Semite influencers to perform during the play “Yentel”, a play about a Jewess. The theatre had until then a Jewish board member and relies very heavily on Jewish philanthropy for its work. In London signs for ethnic cleansing of indigenous Jews from Israel were on Big Ben. Like their Australian counterparts, the police reiterated that calls for the genocide of Jews is not a breach of anti-vilification laws. It is hoped that unlike those in 1930s Europe who realised what is happening too late, it is hoped that Jews are making provisions to move to Israel, the only place where they are now safe.

AUSTRALIA HUNTS DOWN JEWS

Nazi activity in Australia continues to escalate at an alarming rate. In the past week continuing attacks on Jewish businesses have escalated to such an extent that some are starting to shut down. Worse, Jews have been terrorised from their homes, and are beginning to move from suburbs such as Northcote. An influential Member of Parliament, Jenny Leong, presented speech about Jewish “tentacles” and influence, reminiscent of Nazi Germany. This week saw the first public listing of 600 Jews to hunt down, including names, telephone numbers and photographs, again reminiscent of 1930s Germany. The government, in response to UNRWA assisting Hamas terrorism, along with several other countries, recently stopped funding the organisation. With even more revelations of UNWRA participating in Hamas murderous spree, the Australian government has decided to resume funding. Police refuse to act against those who commit antisemitism but will immediately arrest anyone who supports Israel. The situation is so bad that in a rare move, the Israeli ambassador to Australia spoke out against what is happening, to deaf ears. The Prime Minister cries crocodile tears, speaking softly against antisemitism while his government promotes it, reminiscent of Yasser Arafat who would send suicide bombers against Jews and then condemn this action.

AUSTRALIA’S BIZARRE COALITION OF HATE

January 26th marks Australia Day public holiday. This generates protests from Aboriginal groups who consider this as marking Great Britain’s occupation of the country in the 18th Century, with dispossession and killing of the native Aborigines, and consider it a day of sadness. Bizarrely given this view, this year Aboriginal groups teamed up with pro-Hamas groups in support of calling for genocide of Jews. One would think of people who have suffered discrimination would be sensitive towards other minority groups. While this was going on, the hypocritical Prime Minister, Mr Anthony Albanese, whose government incites against Israel and terms a blind eye to rampant antisemitism in Australia, spoke about how tolerant and inclusive Australia was. In Australia, diversity and inclusion applies to everyone except Jews and Israelis. As the country embraces Nazi ideology, it is time for Jews and Israelis, who helped build this country, including its institutions, to seek safety elsewhere. They are no longer welcome.

AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT GASLIGHTS JEWS

Australian Minister for foreign affairs, Ms Penny Wong, has just completed a belated trip to the Middle East which included stopovers in Jordan, the Palestinian Authority’s areas of the West Bank, Israel and the United Arab Emirates. On this trip, when visiting Israel, she declared that her country stands with Israel and condemns the terrorist attacks against it, but at the same time declared that she would be providing $21.5 million to the Palestinian cause, supposedly for humanitarian aid, however it is well documented that such aid is used for terrorist activities only. Cynically, she met and had photographs taken with the relatives of those who were brutally tortured, raped, murdered taken captive but she refused to visit the site of the pogrom. She lectured Israel on the laws of war, a country which has gone to great lengths to avoid civilian casualties, more than any other country at war, lectured Israel on giving the Palestinians more rights, and showed support for the creation of yet another terrorist state, as if Gaza was not enough. When asked about the rampant antisemitism in Australia, her comment was that antisemitism is increasing everywhere, as if this justified her government’s tacit approval and participation in antisemitism in Australia. All of this was predictable, judging from previous statements from the Australian government, and he was extremely gracious of the Israeli government to allow her to meet officials, let alone spread her Nazi propaganda amongst people who have suffered the greatest brutality and loss of life in a single event since the Holocaust. Australia as well and truly aligned itself with the new axis of evil run by Teheran. [Photograph: Ms Penny Wong, Australia’s Foreign Minister]

AUSTRALIA CONSOLIDATES ITS NAZI STATUS

Since the last post, Australia has further consolidated its Nazi status. Its carrier QANTAS (which was the national airline but is now privatised) has garnered favour with antisemites. Its check-in staff openly abuse Israeli passport holders and its on-board airline staff promote Hamas propaganda personally and over the announcement system while in flight. QANTAS management has refused to say anything publicly, indicating its approval. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese has refused to schedule in the United States, Germany and Canada in condemning the appalling lies of South Africa which has taken Israel to the ICJ. Jewish hate speech is now regularly heard from mosques in Australia, as well as in government halls and publicly. Some restaurants refused to serve Jews or Israelis. The authorities, claiming that they will not tolerate any racial hatred of any other group, provide tacit approval for antisemitism, and will arrest any Jew who protests. This week Australian Aborigine groups, who claim to have themselves having been the victims of racism, have declared that they will devote Australia’s national day on January 26, to supporting the genocide group Hamas. Australia’s Jews and Israeli expatriates are left to fend for themselves. What is surprising is that it has taken only 100 days for Australia to turn into a complete Nazi state. This shows that there was widespread latent antisemitism which since the horrific October 7 pogrom has become acceptable and open. [Photograph: Australian government offices fly Palestinian flags – note the absence of an Australian flag]

AUSTRALIA’S SPY BOSS SUPPORTS ATTACKS ON JEWS

The Director-General of Australia’s ASIO, which is the country’s equivalent of the CIA and FBI combined, has stated that attacks and Jews are acceptable as a pressure release for society which stops terrorist attacks. Unchecked, attacks and Jews are becoming mainstreamed in the country, and will undoubtedly lead to worse persecution. Already Jews are being attacked by passengers on airlines, with staff telling Jews to leave the plane when it lands. QANTAS staff checking passports have attacked Israelis although was born in Israel with no response from authorities and whether tepid response from the company that it is looking into it. This comes on top of the Prime Minister receiving thanks from both Hamas and China for supporting the former in the UN, and by the latter for refusing a request from the USA to send a war ship to the Red Sea to help protect shipping from attacks by terrorists. Australia is now well entrenched as a Nazi state unsafe for Jews or other Israelis (20% of Israel’s population is non-Jewish). [Photograph: ASIO Boss]

AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER THE EPITOME OF HYPOCRISY

The Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, together with his foreign minister, Penny Wong, continues to incite against Jews while claiming that he is not antisemitic and has never been antisemitic. Australian governments, local and federal, continue to support the Hamas terrorists in Gaza, flying the terrorists’ flag and repeating thinly veiled accusations that Israel does not adhere to humanitarian laws. Australian police refuse to protect Jews who are attacked, and while allowing tens of thousands of people to gather in support of Hamas and calls for the genocide of Jews, they arrest Jews who carry the Israeli flag, claiming that they are risk to public order. Australian authorities claim that calls to murder Jews do not fall under Australia’s antidiscrimination laws, while minor perceived transgressions against other groups are severely punished. Actors in theatres don Hamas symbols and school teachers preach support for the terrorists to impressionable young children, and encourage them to join protests in support of terrorists. This week the government joined human rights abusing countries in voting against Israel at the United Nations. Australia now resembles Germany in the late 1930s. It appears that Australia’s all-inclusive multicultural and anti-discriminatory policies do not include Jews. Jews and non-Jewish Israelis are no longer safe in Australia.

YES, IT DID NOT START ON OCTOBER 7th

Antisemitic journalists like to point out in their articles that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict did not start on October 7th. They then proceed to state that it began when Israel was created by ethnically cleansing Palestinians, and use this to justify the barbaric pogrom of October 7th, 2023. In this there is one fact, that the conflict started before October 7th, and the rest is based on lie. In fact, the current conflict dates to the 1920s, when Arabs began murdering and ethnically cleansing Jews from Jewish towns such as Hebron. In 1948, when Israel was created, the Arabs launched genocidal war against the Jews, ethnically cleansing them from the West Bank, East Jerusalem, which was then the Jewish Quarter, and Gaza. The Arabs who left the area, numbering some 750,000, did so under instructions from the leaders to give the Arab armies free rein to slaughter the Jews, and were not pushed out by the Jews. The journalists also failed to mention the 850,000 Jews who were ethnically cleansed. The events of October 7th are just the latest in a long line of attacks by Arabs to murdered Jews. That so many Western journalists support this is an indication of how easily the West has fallen into the Nazi ways of the 1930s.

AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENTS STOKE THE FIRE OF ANTISEMITISM

Following the horrific October 7th pogrom in which 1,400 Jews, including babies, women, children and the elderly, were brutally tortured, raped and murdered, and 240 were kidnapped by the Palestinians, the Western world responded with rising antisemitism. This included Australia, with calls for the murder of Jews. Disgracefully, Australian governments at all levels have joined in this festival of hatred. On the day of the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, considered to be the start of the Holocaust, one Melbourne city council hoisted the Palestinian flag and declared a boycott of Jewish businesses. As thousands of protesters march spreading Jew hatred, deliberately going to Jewish areas and preventing Jews from accessing Synagogues for prayer, the federal government falsely claims that Israel is occupied territory and that Israel is deliberately ignoring the rules of war and is bombing medical facilities, stoking the fires of antisemitism. The Israeli military while pursuing the terrorists form the government of Gaza has taken extraordinary measures to minimise civilian deaths, measures that no other government, including Australia, has ever shown their conflicts. Australia now resembles late 1930s Germany. In what is probably a first for Australia, these really government has issued a travel warning that its citizens are unsafe in Australia and should under no circumstances travel there. It is very sad that what was once a free and tolerant country which welcomed people from all over the world has become a Nazi state. [Photograph: Jewish business in Sydney attacked by antisemites]

MYTHS ABOUT ISRAEL

As expected, following the brutal massacre of 1,400 Israelis the babies, children, women, the elderly and men, countries are protesting Israel defending itself, supported by delusional lies. “Israel is seeking revenge” they yell, whereas Israel is fighting a battle for its survival to make sure that this never happens again. “Humanitarian crisis” they yell, whereas in reality any humanitarian crisis caused by the government of Gaza. “Cease fire” they yell, trying to stop Israel defending itself against the perpetrators. “Humanitarian aid” they yell, in full knowledge that any aid is confiscated by Hamas and only helps them. “Ordinary Palestinians have nothing to do with this” they yell about people who elected Hamas to government and danced in the street and celebrated the massacre of Jews. “Occupation” they yell knowing full well that Gaza has been government is an independent state since 2005. “Genocide” they yell, knowing full well that the only genocide committed in the Middle East has always been committed by Arabs murdering Jews. The truth is that the people yelling these things are antisemitic, supporting the murder of Jews. This is the reason Israel must win this fight, so that Jews have a safe country to run to when the world is turning against them.

SIDING WITH THE ENEMY

In outrageous comments the UN General-Secretary António Guterres that the brutal pogrom in which 1,400 Jews, including babies, children, women and the elderly, were brutally slaughtered and more than 200 were taken as hostages was the fault of the Jews. Disregarding the genocidal incitement and brainwashing of Arabs in the region since the 1920s in attempt to drive Jews from the area, and ignoring the fact that the UN, funded by Western largess, has been instrumental in brainwashing Arabs from kindergarten, which are what is responsible for the massacre. Guterres of course is not alone, as Western governments, including Australian authorities, Universities and so-called human rights groups have come out in support of Hamas. And expect Israel to do nothing to protect its people, demanding cease fire to ensure that nothing changes and pays the way for future murder of Jews. Throughout history the Jews have had no friends and this continues until this day. Ironically, Israel is the safest place for Jews.

AUSTRALIA SUPPORTS TERRORISTS

While many countries rightly condemned the pogrom in Israel which was carried out by Hamas terrorists, Australia has shown itself to be an increasingly antisemitic country. The Prime Minister belatedly and under much pressure spoke against the horror in a most tepid way. His Minister of Foreign Affairs was even more reluctant to say anything against the terrorists, and some Premiers, the Greens Party and the Mayor of Sydney have spoken in support of terrorism, equating the brutal slaughter of men, women and children with Jews defending themselves against terrorism. Many organisations in Australia have joint in the chorus supporting terrorism. In Sydney, police were prohibited Jews from leaving their homes while allowing demonstrations in which cries of “Gas the Jews” and other calls for the genocide of Jews were allowed unhindered. During these demonstrations only one arrest was made, that of a due to dad Jew who dared to leave his home. The country’s public broadcaster in its biased reporting is clearly seeking sympathy for the terrorists who be had babies and burn people alive. Australia claims to be a successful and tolerant multicultural society however it clearly excludes Jews from this. [Image: October 9th demonstration at the Sydney Opera House calling for the genocide of Jews]

POGROM ENABLED BY THE WEST

Antisemitism is a constant throughout history. The horrific pogrom carried out by the Arabs was years in the making, aided and financed by the duplicitous West. Eradication of the indigenous Jews started in the 1920s, as Arabs murdered and ethnically cleansed Jews from their towns in the West Bank, and culminated in 1948 with the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank, Jewish East Jerusalem and later from other Middle East countries. During World War 2, when Hitler wanted to expel Jews, it was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who convinced him to exterminate them instead, and laid plans to do the same in the Middle East. The plan to eliminate all Jews failed, and the Arabs started a propaganda war against the Jews, naming their failed attempt the Nakba, renaming themselves Palestinians and inverting history. The West bought this lie and has pandered to the Arab aim of exterminating the Jews. When Jews are attacked, the West pressures them to stop acting against terrorists. The lies compounded, and the West poured billions of dollars to the terrorists, arming them, paying for schools that teach antisemitism and provide summer camps where children from kindergarten are taught how to kill Jews. The West pays for the pay-for-slay program, whereby murderers of Jews are provided generous pensions. The West insisted on a two-state solution (in reality, a three-state solution), leading to the establishment of a terrorist state in Gaza. Rather than building a state, the Arabs put Hams in charge, which attacks Jews from civilian areas. Then when the recent butchery occurred, in the West there are antisemitic protests once again. Hatred against a humane people that have contributed per capita more than any other group is universally hated. Antisemitism is a disease that has never been eradicated, and if history is anything to go by, it never will. The Jews have always been and still are alone, despite the hypocritical posturing of world leaders.

ISRAEL PAYS DEARLY FOR WESTERN WORLD’S DUPLICITY

The horrendous terrorist attack committed Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, resulting in the murder of over 300 Israelis, mainly women, children and the elderly, as well as the kidnapping of about 100 Israelis, again mainly women, children and the elderly, together with thousands of rockets fired on civilians, including ambulances in the hospital, has been rightly condemned by most Western countries, however this is the result of the West’s duplicity against the Jews. Through great pressure the West has never allowed Israel to properly deal with the terrorists, has provided funds for brainwashing children as well as adults to hate Jews, and has directly assisted in arming the terrorists. Recently the United States transferred armoured vehicles and assault rifles to the Palestinian terrorists and has unfrozen $6 billion for Iran, which will no doubt be used to fund more terrorism. Statements of support for Israel in this tragedy ring hollow when this is taken into account, and countries such as New Zealand could not even bring themselves to issue a friendly comment, and Australia, with its antisemitic, terrorist-supporting government, belatedly issued support after being shamed by the opposition party.

BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU

When Russia attacked Ukraine Poland immediately sent military aid and opened its borders to Ukrainian refugees, and has continued to be the main supporter of the country in military aid, humanitarian aid, political support and lobbying for Ukrainian accession to NATO. Furthermore, since Russia effectively blockaded wheat exports from Ukrainian ports, Poland has allowed shipments through its territory, on condition that the wheat not be unloaded and sold in Poland. Selling the wheat in Poland instead of exporting it would destroy Poland’s agricultural sector. Not being satisfied with this arrangement, and in a totally ungrateful act, Ukrainian President Zelensky has spoken out against Poland in political fora. He further insulted Poland by calling for Germany, which has been dragging its feet in helping Ukraine, to be made a permanent member of the UN Security Council. In return, Poland threatened to cut off any further arms supply to Ukraine. Likewise, President Zelinsky has continued his attacks on Israel for not sending enough military aid. He seems to have forgotten that Ukraine collaborated with Hitler in exterminating the Jews, and Ukraine continues until this day to act against Israel in the UN. His actions, putting it kindly, are strange for a country that is so desperate for aid in its war against invaders. It is high time that the President did some soul searching.

AUSTRALIA’S HYPOCRITICAL U-TURN

This week Australia announced they would resume using the term “Occupied Palestinian Territories”, which is abandoned by a previous government and has now been resurrected by Australia’s far left government, which continues to run an antisemitic agenda, having previously stated that Australia no longer recognises West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, even though that land is not under dispute. The Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese stated that the decision was made on legal advice and UN resolutions. Where this legal advice came from is open to question, as Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza have never been part of any Arab Palestinian entity. The last holders of the deed to these indigenous Jewish lands were the British, who took the areas from the Ottomans after World War I. If you want to see a true occupied colonial enterprise based on the killing of indigenous people, you need look no further than Australia. [Illustration: W.L. Walton ‘Mounted Police and Blacks’, 1852, depicting the killing of Aborigines at Slaughterhouse Creek by colonial police troopers, 1838]

GOOD NEWS!…ONLY KIDDING

If only there was good news to write about, but these days it is very difficult. Yes, there are small personal bits of good news, but on the larger stage of the West it seems like a downhill descent from democracy, freedom and equality under the law. The West reached its peak in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, starting its decline in the 1990s and, like the proverbial downhill fall, gaining speed in the 2020s. The United States continues to be divided along political lines. Whatever the merits of each case, the different treatment of Democratic Senators who have done the wrong thing and Republican ones cannot be seen in any light other than politics intruding into the judicial system. In the United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia, the draconian response to COVID-19, which is now coming out as based not facts but on politics and hysteria, saw the suspension of human rights. Australia is undergoing a most divisive referendum. Israel has been torn apart by judicial reforms, with the United States interfering in what should be Israel’s domestic affair. France is undergoing ethnic violence. These events do not augur well for the West at a time when its enemies are attacking or preparing to attack what was once the bastion of democracy. Those enemies are watching very closely and calculating their moves. The leaders of Western countries would do well to stop stoking the division and once more unite their populations or risk the consequences of continuing along the path that they have chosen.

CREATING A WAR TO SOLVE A COUNTRY’S CRISIS

“Hezbollah-affiliated cleric Sheikh Sadiq al-Nabulsi stated that a war with Israel could “deliver” Lebanon from its ongoing political and economic crisis in an interview with the Lebanese Al-Jadeed TV earlier this month, according to a translation published by MEMRI.” (Jerusalem Post July 21, 2023). Lebanon has had political and economic crises for decades, including a civil war, the building of Hezbollah’s state-within-a-state with its parallel government, social service and military facilities, chronic corruption and provoking senseless wars with its neighbour Israel. At present its government is in a political stalemate and the economy is in turmoil. It is beyond the pale that there are calls within the state to start a war in Israel, which would result in countless deaths and much destruction in both Israel and Lebanon, presumably with the aim of consolidating Hezbollah’s power and counting on billions of dollars and foreign aid to rebuild the country. This brings to mind an old Russian joke in which Nikita Khrushchev (the then First Secretary of the Communist Party) contemplates declaring a war on America as a means of getting American aid to save the economy, and is told of the possible flaw in his thinking, “But what if we win?” The difference here is that this is no joke. The world however seems wilfully deaf to the possibility.

WORLD: JEWS HAVE NO RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES

The world has once again shown its antisemitism. By the time Israel’s action against the terrorists in Jenin took place, 28 Jews had been murdered this year in terrorist attacks. In the last incident, 4 young Jews were murdered, resulting in revenge riots by Jews, something uncharacteristic. The United States government condemned the riot is and demanded that the terrorists be giving compensation, only acknowledging the murder is after protests. In an attempt to slow down the terrorists attacks, the Israelis conducted a 2-day operation in Jenin, killing terrorists and losing one soldier. Some of the terrorists were older teens. Israel took extraordinary care not to harm civilians, yet libellous claims were made by the United States, the UN and other countries. Reprehensibly, the BBC said that Israelis were happy to kill children, echoing mediaeval blood libels. None of these countries or institutions condemn terrorism against Jews, and when they conduct counter-terrorism actions themselves many civilians are killed, making their attacks on the Israelis not only wrong but hypocritical. These false claims only breed antisemitism. It is obvious the Jews cannot rely on anyone and the only thing that will stop a second Holocaust is that they have their own country.

PRETENDING TO FIGHT ANTISEMITISIM

Governments have recently made big noises about fighting antisemitism, including Australia which is banned aspects of Nazi symbols in the United States and the Housing its strategy which of course includes antisemitic organisations such as CAIR. Every strategy ignores the main source of modern antisemitism which is Islamic preaching against Jews and Israel. These same governments, joined by the UN, then went on the offensive against Jews. In Israel so far 28 Jews were murdered by terrorists. Following the most recent incident in which four Israelis were murdered, Jews had enough and rioted in the Palestinian area. These riots drew immediate condemnation from the entire world with calls for prosecution of those responsible and giving compensation. Yet no such calls for actions against the terrorists or for compensating the families of the murder of Jews even and to the mind of Joe Biden’s administration or the head of the UN. After the US ambassador disgracefully equated though is murdered by terrorists with the terrorists themselves Jews protested, resulting in a separate statement about sympathy to murdered Jews but it was too late. Western news media excoriated the Jews while giving scant attention to the terrorists. Likewise, Australia, Canada in the UK again called for preventing Jews building houses while supporting Palestinian construction on Jewish land. In an article in The Australian it stated that today the most persecuted people are Christians and Moslems, a totally false statement, the reality being the most persecuted people are Jews and Christians, both at the hands of Moslems and Leftist organisations and governments. These countries and organisations are antisemitic, and in the battle against antisemitism Jews are alone, just like in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. . [Photograph: Farhud massacre of Jews 1941]

STARTING A CAREER WITH HATE

The recent graduation speech at the City University New York’s law school launched a legal career based on hate and racism. In speech which was everted an approved by the faculty, given by graduating student Fatima Moussa Mohammed comprised of hate and calls for destruction of Jews, and the revolution against the United States. This is hate speech, and not free speech. That a future attorney should launch her career in this way is a worry. Even more worrying is that her speech was not only approved by the faculty, but applauded by the Dean. The University only put out a statement condemning the speech after a backlash and calls to cut it is funding. This should be totally unacceptable, but is not surprising given the rapid and massive rise of antisemitism in many western countries, including the United States, Great Britain and Australia, fuelled by immigration from the Middle East. These countries continue to ignore this and only pay lip service to this form of racism.

A TALE OF TWO COUNTRIES

PD has spent time in Poland and in Australia, and the contrast is wide. In the COVID-19 era Poland’s restrictions were minor in comparison to Australia’s draconian restrictions which saw its citizens who were abroad locked out of the country and those within it in house arrest for the longest period of any state, and culminating in the shooting of unarmed protesters in the back at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance. Australia’s restrictions have been lifted however the psychological and financial toll on the population shows. In general, the population appears depressed, and suffering from government instituted crises in jobs, housing and increasing taxes. The government has embarked on Australia’s biggest ever immigration program which will worsen the job and housing crisis. To make matters worse, Australia’s are taught in schools to hate themselves and their country. The future looks bleak. In contrast, the general mood of the population in Poland is upbeat, people are taught to love the country and the economy is growing at twice the rate of Australia’s. Inflation is higher than in Australia however taking everything together this is a happy country despite the war on its doorstep. The contrast with Australia, a once happy, proud and successful country, could not be greater. [Photograph: Police in Australia shooting at unarmed civilians during Covid-19 protests]

DEBATE REGARDING AUSTRALIA’S “VOICE” DESCENDS INTO NAME CALLING

Debate of Australia’s Prime Minister’s push for the “Voice” sinks to new lows. The “Voice” is an Aboriginal advisory body to parliament and governments which the Prime Minister wanting enshrined in Australia’s constitution, which requires a referendum. The “yes” campaign is being treated favourably, with tax breaks which are not available to the “no” campaign, however instead of rational debate and looking what has happened in other countries, it has descended into calling anyone who opposes the change is racist. This would be laughable if not serious, determining that anyone opposing race-based privileges being granted in the Constitution is racist is absurd and hypocritical. In countries with race-based differentiation in privileges in their constitution have never done well, and it reverses the hard-won gains in equal rights over the last few decades. Furthermore, it is very likely that should this succeed, then other groups in society will start demanding special privileges in the Constitution. As bigotry and inequality increasing the world, this is the last thing that Australia needs.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN

With monotonous regularity, the annual ritual of violence by the Arabs marks Passover, Ramadan and Easter. At this time every year the Palestinian Arabs start riots on Temple Mount, leading to a response by Israeli police, followed by rocket attacks. This year was slightly different, as over 40 Rockets were fired from Lebanon, risking a war. Predictably, this resulted in Western powers calling for restraint, and condemnation of Israel by Moslem countries, including Turkey’s call for Moslems to unite against Israel. Of course, nothing will change as the Western powers will continue to do everything to ensure that this situation continues, including funding Palestinian Authority payment for terrorists slay Jews, and funding Arab colonisers to build on Jewish land against all agreements. The Palestinian Arabs of course do not want resolution of the conflict because their leaders have personally made hundreds of millions of dollars from Western largesse, and have created a system which ensures that continuing the conflict pays dividends both politically and financially to enough people to perpetuate the situation.
