Liberal Friends of Israel is a network of Liberal Party members, friends and allies who support the modern State of Israel and Australia’s Jewish community.
The Jewish community has always enriched Australia’s community and culture. They have made an incredible investment in the development of our nation.
Israel is a strong ally of our great country, and rightly we are a supportive ally of theirs. Previously, the strength of that important relationship could be taken for granted. No more.
Many in the progressive-left actively seek to undermine the Australia-Israel relationship, and the foundations of the modern Jewish State.
Working with overseas interests, their activities are connected to international campaigns to delegitimise Israel, its security and place on the world stage.
Sadly, much of this thinking has now infected other Australian political parties. As Australians we cannot afford to be relativist in our relationship with such a close ally, and the only voluntary democracy in the Middle East.
Joining Liberal Friends of Israel is taking a clear public stand in support of Israel and the Australia-Israel relationship. We encourage you to join.
