3-Aug-06: The Dinkum Article

In a ceremony in Tel-Aviv on Tuesday, Australia announced it is contributing $350,000 in aid to Magen David Adom, Israel's civil ambulance service. Tim George, ambassador of Australia to Israel, said that his country wished to support the operations of Israeli rescue teams ''who work night and day to bring first aid to the victims of the Katiyusha rockets''.

Supporting MDA is a vote for sanity and a non-political reminder that people - human beings - are at the centre of the awful events inflicted by Iran and its Hezbollah savages on Lebanese, Israelis and Palestinian Arabs. And a reminder that what's going on in northern Israel is a very serious matter.

Now why doesn't every government have the good sense that Australia does and follow its fine example?

Right. A pity it's getting so little publicity, apart from Australian friends of Israel like ourselves.
