Prime minister accuses Labor of ‘behaving in an antisemitic way’ as John Howard backs shift on Israel
Scott Morrison insists there is no evidence “at this time” of any planned violence as a consequence of his proposed shift in Middle East policy as the government launched a police investigation into the leaking of advice from Australia’s spy agency.
Guardian Australia revealed on Thursday that Asio warned ministers the day before Morrison unveiled the shift that a public signal about relocating Australia’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may “provoke protest, unrest and possibly some violence in Gaza and the West Bank”. It could also possibly trigger domestic protests.
