Australia: Fraser calls for expulsion of Israeli diplomats

March  29 2010

Former prime minister Malcolm Fraser has called on the Federal Government to expel Israeli diplomats from Australia.
Four Australians apparently had their passports forged and used as part of the assassination of a Hamas leader in Dubai.
It is believed the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, is responsible for the murder.

Mr Fraser says the Government must protect the rights and identities of Australians overseas and take action against the Israeli government.

Mr Fraser says Australia must follow Britain’s lead and expel diplomats.

“I believe that is totally and absolutely unforgivable and Australia’s disapproval should be registered by an action not less than that which the British took,” he said.

“I think there’s been a long history, if you like, of double standards. People will not do, in relation to Israel, what they would do if the same action was conducted by some other country,” he told ABC Radio’s Jon Faine.

The Zionist Council of Victoria says the Government needs to wait for the results of an inquiry into the passport scandal before taking action. Council president Danny Lamm says Mr Fraser has overreacted.

“I think Malcolm Fraser has shown an unhealthy obsession with attacking Israel,” he said.
“It’s got worse and worse and worse. And at the same time he wants to indicate that Hamas is almost pure.”
