As the ABC reports, the hot piece of paid propaganda in the December 31st edition of the paper is headlined “Lorde and New Zealand ignore Syria to attack Israel” and rails against the ‘Green Light’ singer for cancelling her show in the country’s capital Tel Aviv, while also attacking NZ for voting (alongside over 100 other countries, just FYI) in favour of a United Nations resolution, calling for the US to drop its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
