Rebel News Australian chief correspondent, Avi Yemini, recently attended the Alliance for Responsible Citizenship (ARC) conference in London. It was at this conference that he had the opportunity to catch up with former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman. Newman, an invitee to the conference, expressed that he was “inspired” to see so many individuals coming together to combat radical left-wing policies that have been spreading across the Western world.
One of the key topics at the conference was the ongoing conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas, and Newman felt that it was connected to the discussions at the event. He conveyed his strong opinion that there was a need for democratic countries to stand against Hamas, a terrorist organization, and the actions they have taken against Israel. Newman was troubled by the fact that there are elements on the political left in Western democracies that have been supporting Hamas. He took issue with this stance, stating that it revealed a moral bankruptcy and a lack of understanding of the true nature of Hamas.
Newman highlighted the opportunity the current conflict in the Middle East presented for Hamas to be replaced with a government that respected human rights and the international rule of law. He urged global organizations like the United Nations to advocate for this approach rather than push for a ceasefire. His advocacy for the need for a change in government in regards to the situation was a clear indication of his strong views. Avi Yemini drew a parallel between the fight against Hamas and the Second World War. If the fight against Hitler had been abandoned, it would have led to grave consequences. Likewise, the fight against Hamas should not be abandoned, as it is a necessary step towards securing freedom and rebuilding the Gaza Strip.
Campbell Newman further emphasized the need for Palestinians to have the same freedoms and rights as those in Western countries. He challenged figures on the left to address the issue head-on and push back against the misguided support for Hamas. Ultimately, the discussions at the conference highlighted the urgency of supporting Israel and pushing for a resolution to the conflict.
This interaction between Avi Yemini and Campbell Newman was a significant one, as it shed light on the complexities and moral implications of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East. The conference served as an important platform to address these critical issues and to advocate for needed change. The exchange between two respected figures underscored the need for a broader understanding and awareness of the situation in the Middle East, particularly when it comes to supporting Israel and standing against radical elements like Hamas.
