For the first time in Australian political history a mainstream party has in its policy platform unconditional support for the establishment of a new state in which all main players have a strong record of Islamist jihad and terrorism, human rights abuse and corruption.
The Australian Labor Party on 30 March on the first day of its Special Platform Conference 2021, inserted into its platform ‘the next Labor government to recognise Palestine as a state, and expects that this issue will be an important priority for the next Labor government’.
Exactly who would govern this currently non-existent state, Labor does not say. So, let’s inform Labor of who’s in the mix. The current players jostling for power over Gaza and much of Judea-Samaria (also known as the West Bank) are either proscribed terrorist organisations such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, or the Palestine Liberation Organisation also known as the Palestinian Authority (PA) which proudly incites and rewards terrorism.
The Australian Jewish Association (AJA) has presented the opinion of the Australian law officer with arguably the most experience in dealing with terrorism cases, former Victorian Director of Public Prosecutions Jeremy Rapke QC, stating although the PA is not currently proscribed as a terror organisation it likely meets the criteria by inciting and fostering terrorism.
