Tēnā koe e te Kaikōrero, tēnā tātou e te Whare. E tautoko ana Te Pāti Māori i ngā kōrero a te Pirimia, kia takatakahia ngā mahi kōhuru a ngā Hūrae. Me mutu ngā mahi kōhuru i ngā tāngata o Lebanon.
Greetings to you Madam Speaker and to us the House. The Māori Party endorses the Prime Minister’s statement, that acts of murder by the Jews be stopped. Such acts upon the people of Lebanon must cease.
That statement was read out by Harawira in Parliament. There doesn't appear to have been any protests however against Harawira's singling out of "the Jews" like this.
I've read Prime Minister Helen Clark's statement too, and it doesn't mention "acts of murder by the Jews". I'm a little surprised that Labour hasn't spoken out against Harawira hijacking the PM's statement like this.
Disagreeing with Israel is one thing, but playing the "Jew card" in the New Zealand Parliament is disgraceful.
