Andrew Bolt Uncovers More Mashni Lies
Following my post about APAN President Nasser Mashni’s late father being an actual terrorist, top Australian journalist Andrew Bolt – being a top Australian journalist – has discovered more incriminating evidence:
Mashni’s father, Shaher Hussein El-Mashni, was actually born in 1926 in Deir Dibwan in what was then Jordan. Deir Dibwan to this day remains a Palestinian town in the West Bank, not Israel, under the control of the Palestinian Authority.
ASIO has removed documents from his publicly available records, but a eulogy written for him in 2007 in the Green Left gives many clues to what El-Mashni was up to back in Jordan.
It says he joined the Palestinian Resistance around the time Israel was created in 1948 and fighting for its life against an invasion by Arab armies.
Says the Green Left: “He knew if he was captured he would spend the rest of his life in an Israeli prison. During this time he continued his political activity, only to be jailed in Al Jafr prison by the Jordanian regime.”
Yes, the Jordanians jailed him, not the Israelis.
El-Mashni then moved to Lebanon, and in 1960 to Australia, after a friend, his sponsor, got him permission to emigrate by claiming he was actually fleeing Muslim intolerance, not Jews: “He is a convert to Christianity from Mohammedanism. As a result of which he was driven from his home and country of Jordan to Lebanon, and has suffered cruelty, imprisonment and torture.”
Or was that a lie?
In other words, elder Mashni either lied to enter Australia or his son has been lying that the reason he ended up in Australia was just because of big bad Israel (he never mentions the part about fleeing Muslim intolerance).
Either way, not a good look for the Mashnis.
Meanwhile, things just keep getting worse for junior:
Senator Wong shared a photo of herself with Mashni on Instagram on October 18. Asked whether she now regretted the meeting and whether she would meet him again, she told The AJN, “Comments and actions by Mr Mashni have been reprehensible.
“A government can’t just talk to people we agree with. I have made clear to Mr Mashni our view, that Israel has a right to exist and a right to defend itself.”
