Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Sol Salbe: Antisemitism – a good idea to find the real culprit

Sol Salbe has posted on facebook the following introduction and a link to an article he has just published on Galus Australia about allegations of antisemitism against the Left, in particular against Socialist Alternative. The article includes a discussion of the ‘evidence’ involved in the allegations of antisemitism against Socialist Alternative at the ANU.

Sol is the former editor of the Australian Jewish Democratic Society Newsletter, Australia, the only full time monitor of the Israeli media and a journalist at the Middle East News Service. I am reposting with his permission.

This item (which I took my time writing) was held over the Passover holiday which finished in Melbourne last night.

I am quite unequivocal in stating that I don’t believe that members of the Socialist Alternative [SAlt] were involved in those alleged antisemitic attacks in Canberra and Adelaide. Attacking them with no evidence is slanderous.

But then, that is Sol Salbe.. always a gentleman, always a bridge-builder, always a thinker.

Yes, Paul, I merely meant that Sol was telling it as he sees it in his usual forensic way and undercutting the untruths in the Woroni article.
