NSW private members’ motion on study mission to Israel – David Shoebridge MLC (Greens)

Mr. Shoebridge, I have just had the opportunity to view your extraordinary 9.5-minute address to the parliamentary chamber with respect to the “study tour” of Israel.  Your courage, your articulateness, and your patience in the face of rude, agenda-driven zealots are worthy of great praise.  I watched you at this site:  http://mycatbirdseat.com/2013/03/37619-aussie-parliamentarians-criticizes-study-tour-of-israel/ .

I have been observing with daily increasing horror the injustices meted out to the people of Palestine for 50 of my 69 years.  Sadly, my United States is aiding and abetting the injustices; so, to perhaps lesser but nonetheless deplorable extents, are the European Union, Canada, your Australia, and a host of other silent-thus-complicit bystanders.  May all of the tormented Palestinians’ legitimate aspirations and rights, as fully enshrined in international law, be accorded to them, the sooner the better.

You, sir, have my unreserved admiration and respect.
