Just seen this in the J Post :
"Australian Prime Minister John Howard was mobbed in Perth last weekend after declaring that Hizbullah "is not some kind of inspirational liberation organization, it's a terrorist organization."But for several days beforehand, Australian Ambassador Tim George, who is winding up his term, had been stating that the attack against Israel was "unprovoked and unjustified." It would seem his opinion was not only personal but official".
Meanwhile, why is the Sydney Morning Herald giving rather more prominence to Stephen Bayley's characterising London as 'filthy, lawless and expensive' than the UK press, eh?
