Statement on anti-Semitism

Christine Milne 28 May 2013

The Australian Greens defend the right of all persons, to be able to live in an environment without discrimination and violence.

The Greens do not tolerate or endorse anti-Semitism and we condemn all forms of discrimination on the basis of race, culture, ethnicity, religion or nationality.

The Greens have championed anti-vilification legislation around Australia as an important mechanism in encouraging a tolerant community.

Australian Greens policy supports the legitimate rights and aspirations of both the Israeli and the Palestinian peoples to live in peace and security in their own independent, sovereign states.

It is the Greens' view that the only way to achieve this, is through a comprehensive negotiated settlement of the conflict leading to a two-state solution, with Israel and a Palestinian state living side by side within secure and internationally recognised borders.
