No. The comment was made in May 2013. The limit had been reduced from 6 nautical miles to 3 in March 2013. A direct Israeli violation of the Egyptian brokered cease fire agreement of November 2012.

Who is creating the fear in the minds of Australians? Popular blogger and author ‘Truth Seeker‘ comes up with a surprising (or not too surprising) answer.

The website of the Group of Eight long-established universities has a section devoted to “Leaders Statements” supporting the Abbott government’s university reform[1] program. It’s a pretty depressing read. Not only are our leaders going in a direction that almost no-one in the sector wants to follow, but the quality of their arguments is depressingly mediocre.
