Former Australian FM Bob Carr Headlining Right of Return Fundraiser With Terror-Supporter (Updated)

I have written before about former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr’s transformation from friend of Israel to outspoken hater, who has made comments that I believe crossed the line over to antisemitism.

Sure, he claims to support a two-state solution

but he has let down his guard of late, headlining an upcoming fundraiser dinner put on by an anti-Israel group, in support of the so-called palestinian “Right of Return.” (hat tip: Arsen)

To be clear: the Right of Return is code for destroying Israel. If all those claiming to be palestinian refugees (in the millions) were to return to what they claim were their homes or homes of their parents and grandparents in Israel proper, Israel would cease to exist as a Jewish, democratic state.

In other words, the Right of Return is not consistent with the two-state solution, which foresees both a Jewish state and palestinian state living side by side.

Note how Carr speaks of saving the “two state solution being buried in settlements” – he wants the future palestinian state to be Judenrein, and the future Jewish state flooded with millions of palestinians. In other words, the only way he sees a two-state solution is if both are Judenrein.

And it gets worse. Also headlining the event is Kuwaiti poet Ahmad Alkandari. This guy:

Kuwait poet Ahmad Al-Kandari: “We call upon the Arab rulers to stop being naïve, to stop submitting [peace] initiatives, to stop tormenting the Palestinian people, to stop being so feeble and weak, and to support the mujahideen of Hamas, not [Mahmoud] Abbas, the traitor.

[…]

“I call upon everybody to repeat after me [sings]:

“The fortresses will never fall as long as our blood flows.

“The fortresses will never fall…”

Crowds: “As long as our blood flows.”

Ahmad Al-Kandari: The fortresses will never fall…”

Crowds: “…As long as our blood flows.”

Ahmad Al-Kandari: “We are the soldiers of Hamas, and Jihad is our path.

“We are the soldiers of Hamas, and Jihad is our path.

“Generation after generation – we will never recognize Israel.

“Generation after generation – we will never…”

Crowds: “…Recognize Israel.”

Ahmad Al-Kandari: “We will never ever…”

Crowd: “…Recognize Israel.”

Ahmad Al-Kandari: “Oh generation, strive for victory, and accept nothing less than victory. Tell the night about the men on the battlefront, who felled heresy with a deadly blow. We lay in wait, watching them advance, with a well-planned ambush ready for them. A voice arose: ‘Kill them, inflict endless wounds upon them.’

[…]

“This is a message to the Zionists, the murderous, treacherous, and occupying Zionists, the Zionists who rob our history and steal our antiquities. Say to Zion: We have brought slaughter upon you, and we shall watch you dying. You will encounter our army of Al-Qassam, for whom death serves as a cloak.

[…]

“Say to Zion: ‘We have brought slaughter upon you, and we shall watch you dying. You will encounter our army of Al-Qassam, for whom death serves as a cloak. We have turned your trickery back against you with soldiers who do not hesitate to slaughter you.’ A voice arose: ‘Kill them, inflict endless wounds upon them.'” […]

Shame on you, Bob Carr, but at least you are letting your true feelings out now.

I expect the Australian Labour party to condemn Carr and his participation in this disgrace of an event.

Update: Carr seems to have reacted to my post – without referencing it of course.

I am still not sure how he thinks endorsing the palestinian “Right of Return” is consistent with a “peaceful negotiated path.”

Update: Success! Carr has pulled out of the event, directly following my post.

I still find it hard to believe he would think an event billed as a “Right of Return” event would be synonymous with a peaceful, two-state solution.
