CANBERRA, Australia — Foreign Minister Stephen Smith says Australia has asked Israel to withdraw a diplomat after an investigation found the country responsible for forging four Australian passports implicated in the slaying of a Hamas operative in Dubai. Smith told Parliament on Monday that Israel's conduct was "not the actions of a friend."


Nice to see some countries in the world hold others to standards.

Israels people are not bad, but there government is atrocious, this seems almost like a mild thing to kick out a diplomat, they're many other reasons that come to mind.

Will there be other country's asking diplomats to leave in the future?

I would love to see America do this also
however it probably never will.
Too many dual citizenship (US/Israel)
in our Gov offices

This will never happen in America, simply due to the mega-lobbying effort on behalf on Israeli interests. The biggest lobbying group in the world is AIPAC and AIPAC is only one of the many pro-Israeli lobbies in the States. The sad fact of the matter is that Israel owns our balls while China and Japan owns our economy. We are merely their pawns/slaves.

I would say this is a good thing for Australia but I just can't bring myself to ever praise Australia with their anti-liberty policies of late.

Already a thread and my post was.


I heard this on ABC today.

While yes it's great news it is also well overdue.
Why the hell did the Gov take so long to act when all the information was available and discussed on the news months ago??

Maybe the Gov (little Kevin) needs a distraction for some reason...
Maybe Australia giving 16billion to greek bailout???Which didn't make the news....

BTW, 16billion is HUGE for Australia's economy.

This is fantastic news.

It's not often the Rudd government does anything I approve of. But they have this time and credit where credit is due.

Well done

Sounds like a puppet show.

They didn't expel him, they asked Israel to withdraw him.

Let's see what Israel says.
