Dr Vacy Vlazna, Collaroy
Thank you for publishing the article about Australia Post hijacking ANZAC heroism to normalise the abnormal and brutal Israeli occupation.
Directly linking the Battle of Beersheba with the establishment of the state of Israel is despicable propaganda or what Israel calls ‘hasbara’ ie lies.
It is a downright lie that young Australian AIF soldiers, who fought on Palestinian soil alongside Palestinian farmers, died or were injured for an Israel which did not exist.
The Australian government’s attempts to denigrate the non-violent BDS movement, and now the fact that they have a joint project stamping approval on Israel should alert Australians to stand firm on Palestine’s political and human rights under international law.
