NZ the odd one out on Israel

This website looks at how far out of step New Zealand is with our usual allies on Israel. We are the only country of Australia, Canada, UK and US to have:

  • awarded a degree for holocaust denial
  • not designated Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups
  • sanctioned BDS activity
  • not taken action against UNRWA teaching hate
  • ignored resident Nazis
  • not have an embassy in Israel
  • not invested in holocaust education
  • not joined the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance

It all adds up.

And we are seeing the same pattern on Ukraine. Every other Western country is imposing sanctions or providing assistance to Ukraine so they can resist the invasion. New Zealand is merely firing off press releases.
