Oz's parliamentary condemnation of Israel's ethnic cleansing

Well they condemned it outside the Australian parliament anyway. Inside the parliament both sides of the house congratulated Israel on 60 years of ethnic cleansing but outside...
There was a small group of protesters outside Parliament House in Canberra and large advertisements placed in national newspapers condemning the motion.

The signatories to the advertisement, which included members of the Labor Party and heads of unions that helped finance its campaigning in the November election that saw Rudd triumph, condemned what they said was a "celebration of the triumph of racism and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians since the al-Nakba (Catastrophe) of 1948."
It appears that Kevin Rudd likes to cherry pick among the ethnically cleansed natives he feels sorry for or says sorry to.
