Hanan Ashrawi Fumes Over Real Woman’s Support For Israel

Hanan Ashrawi, PLO official and Richard Gere’s “Not-So Pretty Woman,” is fuming over Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s staunch support for Israel.

ashrawi gereA senior Palestinian official on Sunday panned recent comments by Australia’s foreign minister to the Times of Israel in which she called on the international community to stop branding Israeli settlements illegal.

PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi said statements by Julie Bishop represented “dangerous shifts in Australian foreign policy” and called for an official clarification of Australian policy on the issue.


“I would like to remind the Australian government that in accordance with international human rights law and international humanitarian law, all settlements are illegal,” Ashrawi wrote in a statement on Sunday, citing Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention and Article 43 of the Hague Regulations.

Ashrawi referred to Bishop’s comments as “willful defiance of international consensus.”

I can almost understand Ashrawi’s frustration, given she won the Sydney Peace Price over a decade ago and the Australian Foreign Minister until recently was the decidedly anti-Israel Bob Carr.

She must be rather MIFTAH miffed.

    I would like to remind Hanan Ashrawi that she is the friendly face of child molesting serial killers, which is, nominally speaking, against all non Arab non Muslim law, generally speaking.
