Judas, Israel and Wentworth

My reply to the noise from The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/shifting-the-australian-embassy…) : My response: "Tony Walker calls our PM’s discussion of moving the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem “opportunistic”, ‘craven’, ‘chicanery’ and ‘a cynical exercise in vote buying.“ In what other non-capital cities does Australia have our embassy? Jerusalem has been the capital, the focus of the Jewish people’s history there for 3,000 years. Jerusalem has been her national capital since 1949. The Knesset (Parliament) and Supreme Court have been there since the country’s founding. Recognising the capital of a country as the home of our embassy is the proper respectful decision we should have made decades ago"
On Monday, in answering the same Conversation AND ABC report, the Honest Reporting website offered this view about Judas and anti-Semitism. https://honestreporting.com/antisemitism-judas-slur-on-australian-jewish-voters-wentworth-tony-walker/
It will be interesting to see how far this goes, and whether the ABC or Conversation will apologise for this.
We are glad to be watchdogs along with HR in this regard.
