Dr David Robie, editor, Asia Pacific Report: It is outrageous the attempt to silence yet another respected champion of indigenous Palestinian self-determination on spurious claims over past violence. For the vast majority of people around the world for the last four months and longer (actually ever since the 1948 Nakba), we have seen the naked state terrorism of Israel. The oppressed people of Palestine have every right to defend themselves against genocide and ethnic cleansing. And we in Australia and New Zealand have every right to hear people such as Leila Khaled speak of their lived experience and humanity.
