Two Faces of our government: Anthony Albanese pro-Palestine to pro-Israel

Recent events have exposed a concerning inequality in the Australian government's approach to the Israel-Palestine conflict. On one hand, the Prime Minister vehemently addressed concerns against Hamas and their attacks on Israel during a visit to Melbourne, while on the other, evidence from the past has revealed a contrasting stance from our now Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. This apparent inconsistency in dealing with the Israel-Palestine issue has raised questions about the government's impartiality and its commitment to representing the views of all Australians.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese chose to address the Jewish community at St Kilda Shule in Melbourne. Thousands had gathered in Sydney to commemorate the deaths of civilians and show support for Israel, and the Prime Minister's remarks were reassuring.

He stated, "I want to assure you that kind of hateful prejudice has no place in Australia. Our country is better than that – and our country is a better place because of you and your community."

While denouncing prejudice is undoubtedly important, the context of this statement, suggesting that it seemed to disregard the Palestinian perspective entirely.

A deeper dive into the government's historical positions on the Israel-Palestine issue adds further complexity to the situation.

Evidence from 2013 has come to light, showing that Anthony Albanese, now Deputy Prime Minister, had a pro-Palestine stance and had been vocal about it.

 

 

Albanese's advocacy for Palestinian rights was evident in his role as a founder of the federal Parliamentary Friends of Palestine. He openly criticized many of Israel's policies and expressed his support for justice for the Palestinian people.

The central issue here is not whether one should support Israel or Palestine, but rather, whether Australia's government should ensure that both perspectives are heard and considered.

The right to peaceful protest and freedom of expression should be upheld for supporters of both sides, without any group feeling marginalized or left in the shadows. Why be a hypocrite and speak against Palestinian rally and freedom of speech. And on the other hand support and advocate for Israel.
