The Sydney Morning Herald:  “Suburb joins Israeli boycott”, 21 December 2010

Marrickville Council not only has a good grasp of the realities of Middle East politics, but unlike our Federal Government, it is also principled. Israel’s apartheid policies against its Palestinians citizens and also some 4 million under Israel’s military occupation are well documented by Amnesty International, and just yesterday, by Human Rights Watch. Marrickville Council’s decision to boycott follows an established nonviolent tactic employed against former Apartheid South Africa. Israel should not suppose it is any less in need of being held to account. Nor should its apologists like Vic Alhadeff.
