Bryan Dawe (VIC) writes to FM Kevin Rudd re Israel’s treatment of Palestinian child prisoners 28Nov11 November 28, 2011

Dear Mr Rudd,

I refer you to  John Lyon’s article in the ‘Australian’ newspaper of Nov 26th. It is appalling enough that Israel carries out such atrocious behavior, it is outrageous that you and the Australian Ambassador for Israel have knowledge of such activity and fail to condemn it.

If our diplomats are unwilling to speak out on the abhorrent act of imprisoning children for allegedly throwing stones, what may I ask do you and your diplomatic staff in Israel consider worthy of discussion at the cocktail parties?

Our silence on this issue shames Australia and the Labor Party. ‘Doc’ Evatt won’t be turning in his grave, he’ll be thrashing.
