The list of Australian corporate flaks backing Israel’s hit in Dubai is growing. Israel is a state religion. Must support. Must back. Must love. Must not question.
Israelis 1, Palestinians 0.
Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a virtueless scrap of humanity, is dead. All good so far.
Just days off turning 50, al-Mabhouh knew he was a worthy target for assassination. Usually, he travelled with a team of bodyguards, but they couldn’t get seats on his flight, which was said to be the first leg of a weapons-buying trip to Thailand.
To help secure the success of this well-thought-out killing, Mossad’s agents travelled on forged passports appearing to have been issued in Germany, France, Ireland, the UK and Australia.
Foreign ministers from these countries, including our own Stephen Smith, have been mildly critical of Israel, at least compared with the excitable Hamas spokesman who told Israel to “prepare to receive the hellfire of our anger”. What, and that’s new?
Our reaction was more subdued; forging Australian passports was not “the act of a friend”.
Yes it was.
We cancelled the screening in Parliament House of an Israeli film called Noodle.

These days attention has turned towards Iran and its development of a nuclear program. This, too, is to generate power. Then why hide it at terrific expense under the desert?
Gaza is an Iranian proxy state where that country’s hate for the West is played out in fights against Israel.
This is the War on Terror.
Iran is the terror. Its Gaza agents are the terrorists. We must kill them.
And next on the agenda is Iran’s nuclear plant.
