Senator Lee Rhiannon (NSW) responds to Australian editorial labelling her an “anti-Israel extremist” 11Jan13 January 11, 2013

Your editorial (A state of delusion delays a real Palestinian solution”, 7/1) labels me as an “anti-Israel extremist”. This is an appalling allegation which I reject. I support a two-state solution, which is the policy of the Australian Greens. This includes Israel’s right to exist in peace.

Israel is the military and economic power in the region. I am concerned about the brutal treatment of Palestinian people by the right-wing Netanyahu Likud government. Achieving justice for Palestinians is critical to achieving peace. One of the reasons I am a member of the Greens is because the party has a proud track record of opposing human rights abuses, racism and bigotry.
