The Australian:  “Fiona Byrne dodges on Israel boycott” by Imre Salusinszky and Amos Aikman, 25 March 2011

Leaving aside whether Israel should be boycotted for its apartheid policies
against the Palestinians, it seems that increasingly our politicians are
targeted if they do not show unconditional support for Israel. And woe
betide those that have the temerity to be critical of this state. This
insistence on fealty to Israel is itself a singling out of Israel for
special status, particularly when it becomes a prerequisite qualifier for
our politicians of whatever stripe and manages to overshadow all other
policies that should be discussed before an Australian election.
