Australia Finally Abandons Israel

smh.com.au by JONATHAN PEARLMAN AND JASON KOUTSOUKIS

It seems Australia finally abandons the state of Israel at the Goldstone report. Australia says otherwise but most view this is a backlash over the Dubai passport issue. Australia abstained from voting over the Goldstone report.

Britain, New Zealand and France changed their votes from abstain to support while the US and Canada voted against the UN resolution.
