The Greens Israel problem

n some respects, the NSW branch of the Young Greens ought to be congratulated for their honesty.

As reported in the Daily Telegraph, their decision to boycott activities and communication with Australia’s only peak Jewish student organisation betrays the hideous moral monstrosity that is their NSW organisation.
