Albanian comments on Israel do not reflect ‘mainstream view’: Sharma

Liberal MP Dave Sharma says opposition leader Anthony Albanese’s views on Israel are “deeply disturbing”.

“They obviously have quite a strong following and consistently express Anthony Albanese’s beliefs that all the blame, if you will, in an Israeli-Palestinian conflict is only on one side,” Sharma told Sky News host Sharri Markson.

“He constantly describes Israel as the aggressor nation, he constantly takes up the Palestinian national narrative where the flaw is in this conflict.

“It is certainly outside the mainstream of the Labor Party’s traditional stance on this that has been strong support for Israel.”
