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

I noted the  article ( ” Fiona Byrne dodges on Israel boycott ” ) recently in THE AGE . Ms Byrne , a Greens candidate in the next NSW elections , also supports the ‘Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions’ ( BDS ) movement directed at the state of Israel. I would much prefer that your newspaper concern itself with those policies of Ms. Byrne that impact on us voters here in Australia. It appears that anything involving Israel in a ‘negative’ manner is becoming a campaign issue. Why should an Australian politician or an elected official be judged according to their support for Israel . Please ignore the pressures of Israeli lobby groups & pro-Israel politicians.  ” Be Australian and we will continue to buy ‘The Age’ ! “
