Zionist lies and preparation for nuclear war

By   /  May 19, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  8 Comments

If we cannot bring Israel to respect the most fundamental provisions of international law, then we must part company with our ‘traditional allies’ as they seek to cover for Israel’s lawlessness and inhumanity. New Zealand should reappraise its foreign policy and align itself with humanity rather than unashamed power.

By   /  May 16, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  1 Comment

In a Press Release dated 12 May 2018, the Israel Institute’s director, Dr David Cumin, welcomed US President Trump’s reckless and destabilising decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of world powers.

Zionism condemned

By   /  March 25, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  4 Comments
