Australian Greens Leader Senator Richard Di Natale needs to immediately shred a misleading and deceptive pro-Palestinian pamphlet authorised and printed by Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon.
The pamphlet contains two statements purportedly made by Israel's Moshe Dayan in 1969 and Ariel Sharon in 1973.
Dayan is quoted as saying:
"We came to a region of land that was inhabited by Arabs and we set up a Jewish State … Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages"
Dayan actually said:
"We came to a region that was inhabited by Arabs, and we set up a Jewish state. In many places, we purchased the land from Arabs and set up Jewish villages where there had once been Arab villages."
Dayan's statement refutes the canard repeated in Palestinian text books and media that:
...the Zionist gangs stole Palestine.
Why Rhiannon deleted Dayan's highly significant remarks remains unexplained.
The authenticity of Sharon's supposed statement is shrouded in uncertainty.
Michael Shaik writing in the Greens Left Weekly claimed the statement was made by a British journalist boasting at Israel's National Press Club.
Max Blumenthal writes it was made in a private chat with Winston Churchill's grandson in 1973.
