Re. Australia-Israel joint issue stamps commemorating the battle of Beersheba

I am appalled that you link the BATTLE OF BEERSHEBA (which occurred on Palestinian land) with a country that did not exist at the time it took place. They were the Palestinian Arabs that fought alongside the Diggers with the combined Allied forces campaign against the German supported Ottoman armies. The Jewish inhabitants at that time did not exceed 4% of the population and the Palestinians Arabs were still in their towns and villages long before they were ethnically cleansed by the Zionists. Shame on you for tarnishing the memories of men who fought and died and for sullying the past thus helping Israel forging and fabricating history to suit its illegal occupational policies.

This commemorative stamp issue, if not withdrawn, will place Australia Post , and by implication Australia as a nation, sqarely on the side of falsified history.
