Dear Editor, Australian politicians visiting Israel may find themselves in breach of the Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment (Foreign Fighters) Bill given that Israel openly admits assisting al Nusra front terrorists. Former IDF colonel Miri Eisen, stated that Israel had treated about 1,000 injured terrorists and had rebuilt the shattered jaw of their deputy commander, returning him to his base in Quneitra. Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon corroborates this, ” We’ve assisted them under two conditions, that they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.” (Times of Israel. July 31, 2015). Israel’s doctors obey the Hippocratic oath and treat any injured person, even terrorists, but why doesn’t Israel arrest them? Australia and its allies bomb these terrorists but Israel fixes them up to fight again.
