Michael Danby blames Bob Carr for Labor’s Palestine state push

Federal Labor MP Michael Danby spoke with Andrew Bolt on the Bolt Report (03/07/17) as to why he thinks it would be a mistake for Labor to recognise Palestine as a country.

Michael Danby has thrown down the gauntlet to Labor elder Bob Carr, challenging him to a televised debate on the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

The NSW Labor conference will soon vote on a motion to unconditionally recognise Palestine as a state, The Australian reports, representing a more pro-Palestinian position than the current federal stance of working towards a conditional two-state solution.

Mr Danby, the Federal MP for Melbourne Ports and a vocal supporter of Israel, has blamed Bob Carr for the push by Labor in NSW.
