Australian Jews Reject Palestinian Prize Winner

The Australian Jewish community is protesting the selection of Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, a prominent Palestinian activist and politician, as recipient of the Sydney Peace Prize, and are complicating many a political career in the process. As a senior PLO official, and Yassir Arafat’s former spokesperson, Ms. Ashrawi has been denounced as an advocate of terror.

The community’s voice, however, is not unanimous. Ian Cohen, the only Jewish MP in Australian parliament, is upholding the award committee’s decision.
