(Newcastle Morning Herald) 14th December 2023
The Australian Government support for the UN call for a ceasefire is not balanced as the UN call is unbalanced as it calls for Israel to cease engaging in the conflict but did not call for Hamas, Hezbollah and the Iran’s proxies in Yemon to lay down their arms not to stop engaging in the continual rocket, missile and other fire against the state of Israel.
If Hamas would surrender, hand over the hostages and stop using civilians as human shields and the other combatants in surrounding countries to do likewise there would be no conflict. Israel is the only member of the current conflict that desires peace while the other combatants want nothing less than the total destruction of Israel.
It was said before: “when the Arabs learn to love their children as much as they hate the Jews there will be peace in the Middle East”. Quite a number of Arab nations have so far began to come on board with peace with Israel and all find it is incredible beneficial to them in so many ways. Encourage more to and there will be an end to the conflicts.
The Australian call for a ceasefire should have been balanced, including against Israel’s combatants!
Yours in Good Faith
