Burns' Rush


Julia Gillard was elected [Australia's] prime minister last Thursday...

On Monday she was caught in her first political storm as prime minister following a letter written by Ross Burns, who served as Australia's ambassador to Israel between 2001 and 2003.

In a letter to the Sydney Morning Herald, Burns said Gillard has been ''remarkably taciturn on the excesses of Israeli actions in the past two years''.

The former diplomat hinted that Gillard's stand stemmed from her relations with Jewish Melbourne property developer Albert Dadon, who employs Gillard's partner Tim Mathieson and has been active in advancing Australia's ties with Israel...Burns was joined by another former Australian ambassador to Tel Aviv, Peter Rodgers, who said that under successive governments, Australia's approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had become increasingly unbalanced

Despite the stink of antisemitism in bringing up Jewish money, could it be that she simply has heard the truth through good sources?

That she doesn't need to be 'even-handed' be faithful to the truth?

What type of ambassadors were these mates?

P.S. See MerylYourish.
