New Zealand has cut all diplomatic ties with Isreal.
earlier this year (or late last year) our goverment caught isreali spys in New Zealand trying to get New Zealand passports.
they have now been put in prison, and Isreal has denied that they were Isreali spys. (they were caught using a tetraplegics identity when trying to secure the passports)
Isreal which was one of our allies in the past, now has no diplomats in the country, and the closest dipolmats for the NZ government to talk to are in australia.
unfortunatly, co-inciding with this announcement, some people in NZ went to the cemetry and smashed a number of Isreali graves, and drew swastikas on their graves. its believed that this act was done as an insult to isreal, rather than being targeted at the particular graves.
-----------My opinion on the matter------------
i think that the NZ government is making the correct decision on cutting all diplomatic ties with Isreal. it sends a message to the Isreali government that they are loosing friends with their current political methods both within the middle east and across the world.
the grave smashing i think is pretty stupid. whether or not you hate a country, i think that respect is somthing that should be aheared to. i think its sad that it has come to that level in some peoples minds.
so farewell Isreali ties, may you come back when you decide to respect the world. hopefully things can be worked out, but its not my country’s responsibility to make the effort on it.
and if your gonna get spys at least make them smart enough not to get caught LOL
----edit, further information as i get it-----
the isreali spys were understood to be on an assasination mission.
