It must really ache Al Age that the leaders of both of Australia's major parties support Israel. So much so that the bashing continues unabated with this twisted headline to a story by Jacob Saulwick in today's edition - Loyal to Israel despite killings.
The Age might not have noticed but the two leaders have also remained loyal to the United States and Britain and to themselves despite the killings going on in Afghanistan.
What readers of the Age might not have noticed is that Islamic Terror is responsible on a daily basis for killings everywhere and that Israel is on the front line of the war against Islamic terror groups. Al Age is doing a good job in downplaying the role of these jihadi groups such as Hizb Ut-Tahrir and its controversial leaders who recently shocked the rest of Australia with their forthright comments about the nature of their cause.
Al Age has gone all the way in its pathetic whitewash job on the role of the IHH in the deaths of the nine who were killed when members of this terrorist group attacked Israeli commandos boarding the Mavi Marmara which sought to break Israel's blockade of Gaza, ruled by the fascists in Hamas.
To come out with commentary stating that "[B]oth Prime Minister Julia Gillard and her predecessor Kevin Rudd have been rusted-on supporters of Israel," is indicative of the sheer arrrogance and blind hatred this newspaper has of Israel.
Yet, in spite of the thousands of deaths inflicted by Islamic terror in dozens of locations across the face of the earth, Al Age has devoted reams of its space to condemn Israel for the deaths of nine suicide terrorists and to poo hoo documented evidence including statements from the parents of one of the dead that the IHH were on a suicide mission when they joined the so-called "Free Gaza" flotilla in late May.
Is there any other way to describe this but "loyalty"?
