Rex Williams writes to Stephen Smith Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs 24May10 May 24, 2010

Well done, Minister.

Knowing the pressures that you no doubt received from any number of circles in relation to this decision, including some no doubt from within your party, I feel you should know that in the minds of most fair-minded Australians, your decision was the right one and absolutely justified.

I spend most waking hours in reading and contributing to the underground press located in very large proportions on the Internet and know the influences that have caused and are still causing the serious erosion in US foreign policy at the moment which have brought to an end the real efforts at a just solution in the Middle East. These same influences are trying to promote another war similar to Iraq and Afghanistan with Iran, a non-combatant nation with no nuclear weapons and a signatory to the NPT. We trust you and your government will show the same fair-minded approach to this matter as well and not follow blindly the path the US is taking as a subservient puppet to Israel.

In light of all these things your decision renews some hope for people everywhere and particularly the long-suffering peoples in Palestine that at least one country has not bowed to such pressure. That is indeed a cause for appreciation of your efforts.

Finally, millions of people will be very grateful to you for your efforts and we all thank you, sincerely.

– Rex Williams
