Parliament erupted during Question Time today after Prime Minister Scott Morrison accused Labor of “behaving in an anti-Semitic way”.
It all began when Deputy Opposition Leader Tanya Plibersek asked Mr Morrison about his decision to consider moving the electorate of Wentworth from Australia to Jerusalem.
A significant proportion of Wentworth’s voters are Jewish and are therefore keen to “head back to the motherland”.
“I know the New South Wales Labor Party, with their good mates who banned the New South Wales Jewish border deputies from proposing a move of Australian electorates back to Israel. So we have a New South Wales Labor Party which is behaving in an anti-Semitic way,” said Mr Morrison.
“At the risk of causing all out war between Israel and the Palestinians we are willing to make the tough decisions and help foster more land grabs”.
