Maher Mughrabi, The Age’s Features Editor, has been the “latest example” of Australia’s “divisive” new identity politics, according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt.
“He (Mughrabi) this year signed a petition demanding journalists not be neutral in covering the latest conflict between Israel and Palestinian terrorist group Hamas,” Mr Bolt said.
“But it gets worse, Mughrabi then played the race card against his colleagues, as is the modern way, saying the Israel-Palestinian issue is not an in-house matter for white people.
“But it gets still worse … the Palestinian Community Association of Victoria last year announced this same Maher Mughrabi was a judge of its literary prize named after Ghassan Kanafani, who was a journalist and influential editor for a Marxist terrorist group.
“Mughrabi last year urged young Palestinian Australians to write something for a prize in this man’s name, a prize in honour of a member of a terrorist group, and to write something stressing their Palestinian identity above all.
“This new identity politics in this country is mad, it is divisive, it is dangerous.”
