With Irwin gone, Australian parliament is totally pro-Israel

One of the Australian parliamentarians brave enough to actually understand Palestinian rights is departing Labor MP Julie Irwin.

In a completely ignored farewell speech this week, Irwin discussed “Israeli propaganda” after the Gaza flotilla massacre. She demanded the Jewish state accept international law or face isolation.

Note the Labor minister Craig Emerson’s shameful disassociation on behalf of the government at the conclusion of the adjournment debate.
