APAN responds to Israeli embassy video screening

Australia Palestine Advocacy Network < 1 mins read

Quotes attributed to Australia Palestine Advocacy Network President Nasser Mashni:

“The world has rightly condemned the violent attacks on civilians. We have condemned the attack on all civilians be they Jewish, Muslim, Christian, atheist or other.”

“However, one atrocity does not justify another. Hamas’ actions occurred on one black day. Israel has been perpetrating that horror on the people of Gaza for 24 black days now, and for over 27,000 days before October 7. Israel has now killed more than 8,000 people, including 3,747 children. That’s a precious child on average each and every 10 minutes since October 7.” 

“Is Israel seeking to blur the line between the Palestinian people of Gaza and Hamas, to justify the killing of thousands more innocents in Gaza?”

“This is nothing but a desperate bid to stem the growing international criticism of the war crimes being committed by Israel in Gaza.”

"It is time people of good conscience in Australia demand that all life be equally valued, that all babies, women and men are precious. Israel’s eye for an eye revenge plan will only see all those involved blinded."

Gazan war continuation of 100 years of displacement

The current war in Gaza is the continuation of a long history of forced displacement of Palestinians by Israeli forces, shows a new report, commissioned by ActionAid and Oxfam. Currently there are 2 million Gazans internally displaced in the tiny 41 kilometre long territory, which is about half the size of Canberra. The report (attached) shows the current war is but only the latest chapter in a long history of displacement and expulsion which has overshadowed Palestinian existence since the start of the British Mandate in 1922. In just the last 15 years Israeli forces have carried out armed incursions…

Declining aid investment risks our region’s prosperity and security

Media release | Friday, 12 April 2024 The Safer World For All campaign has warned Australia's aid spending stagnating at historic lows means the nation is failing to invest in future prosperity and security. OECD data released overnight shows Australia remains near the bottom of the OECD for aid spending as a proportion of Gross National Income (GNI). Ranking at 26 out of 31 countries, Australia’s overall aid/GNI ratio remains at just 0.19 per cent. This falls far short of countries including the United Kingdom (0.58 per cent) and Canada (0.38 per cent). After a decade of decline from 0.32%…
