Herald Sun senior editor Alan Howe loathes Muslims, Arabs, Palestinians and anybody who doesn’t embrace US foreign policy.
Today he takes his hatred even further. “Journalism”, Murdoch style:
There was some truth told last week, and the usual suspects – devious and untrustworthy – found it most uncomfortable.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, not for the first time, acted out another UN farce and voted to grant membership to Palestine.
Not enough people in Palestine know much about science, or education, or culture, so on the surface it might look a good idea.
The truth is that it is a dangerous ploy by the Palestinians to try to get the UN to grant them nationhood.
Palestine is not yet a nation – it rejected that opportunity in a generous offer made by Israel 11 years ago – and so should not be part of any UN body. It’s the United Nations.
In all, 107 nations voted away their souls on the Palestine issue. They predictably included Russia, China, Austria and South Africa. Oh, and France, of course; there’s a country that never passes up an opportunity to display how contemptibly weak it is.
The noble nations that told the truth – just 14 of them – included Australia, the US, Canada, Israel and Sweden, while 52 nations, only slightly to the north of the French when it comes to courage, abstained.
There was pressure on Julia Gillard for Australia to abstain. Instead, she told the truth.
