The Member for Isaacs, Mark Dreyfus MP (ALP),
is an active supporter of Israel
like my local MP, in Melbourne Ports, Michael Danby (ALP), and we
all know how
oppresses the Palestinians. However both MPs should research who the
electorate of Issac's was named after. Sir Issac Isaacs was a High
Court Judge, the first Australian born Governor General and a Jew.
He also opposed political Zionism and opposed the concept of a
Jewish State in Palestine. Sir Issac
would be turning in his grave knowing how his name is being used
in an electorate by a Labor MP with such opposite view to Sir
Issac on the occupation of Palestine
by The Jewish State of Israel. FREE PALESTINE and put Mark Dreyfus
last on the ballot paper.

Democracy is For Muslims – Use It!
By Asem Judeh***
During every election campaign we see
politicians from both the major parties rushing to appease the
influential organised pro-Israel lobby. When this happens
Muslims are, if not demonized, at least subtly criticized. It is
not possible to accept
Israel’s Zionist agenda and not
also accept an underlying prejudice against Muslims.
Muslims have two choices. They can be quiet, and accept the
bigotry directed against them. Or they can participate at the
ballot box, become involved in a democratic process that is for
them as well as every other Australian. If they do the second,
they can counter the message being pushed by the pro-Israel lobby
that there is something suspicious about Muslims.
It is well known that the Israeli state has sponsored murderous
and terrorist acts, and that it has systematically deprived
Palestinians of their land and basic rights. One reason the
Israeli lobby is so organized and aggressive is because it has to
is above criticism. If
was criticized like other countries, it would be seen as the lawless
and dangerous country that it is. The recent callous murder of
nine innocent Turkish people on a boat bringing humanitarian aid
to Gaza is just the latest example of Israel’s aggression.
There are many examples of the unhealthy Zionist influence on
Australian politics. In the Australian Jewish News, July 23rd,
the front page said: “Courting the community: Just days into the
election campaign, senior Government and Opposition politicians
sought to woo Jewish voters, meeting communal leaders and
appearing at a number of special events”.
On page 3 there was this: “Abbott swipes at
Labor Party’s stance on Israel”. On page 4: “Bishop visits
the King [school]” and “Wentworth candidates do battle over Israel”. On page 5: “Crean
confirms Shoah education option” and “Liberal resigns over Danby
Zionist influence is growing. There are two Zionist Jews Labor MPs,
Michael Danby and Mark Dreyfus. After this election another Australian Jew
become Liberal MP for safe Kooyong Liberal seat, Josh Frydenberg,
replacing retired Liberal MP Petro Georgiou. Those MPs are the organised
representatives. Their job is to silence any MPs who dare to criticise Israel in the Parliament. They use
parliamentary committees to defend Zionism and
those who dare to criticise
Israel. They pressure the government of
the day to allocate more funds to the Jewish community to promote the
a democratic way of countering this heavy influence. Australian Jews
number about 130,000. Muslims and Arabs (including Christians) number
one million. So why do we, Muslims and Arabs, blame politicians and the
organised lobby. How come that we don’t have a voice and politicians do
not listen to us? Because we are not using democracy the way it is
intended to be used.
are very few politicicians from Arabic or Muslim background. Very few
Muslims or Arabs are members of major parties. Community activists do not
politicians to be more even handed. It is time to stop blaming the
politicians and the
lobby and start to exert democratic influence ourselves.
Op-Ed will be published this month in the Crescent Times
The martyrs and the Heroes of the
must not forgotten. August 21st put Labor & Greens last
in Isaacs federal seat.
