Rare breath of fresh air

Australian fresh air. As reported by the Times of Israel:

In an exclusive interview with The Times of Israel, Julie Bishop [Australia’s foreign minister] suggested that, contrary to conventional diplomatic wisdom, the settlements may not be illegal under international law. She refrained from condemning Israeli initiatives to build additional housing units beyond the Green Line or from calling on Israel to freeze such plans, merely saying the fact that settlements were being expanded showed the need for the sides to quickly reach a peace agreement.

There’s more. For example:

She also strongly condemned the global anti-Israel BDS movement: “It’s anti-Semitic. It identifies Israel out of all other nations as being worthy of a boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign? Hypocritical beyond belief.”

She gets it. Read the whole thing, here, and enjoy the fresh air.
