The world's fixation with Israel is weird.

i was about to say that it's weird a news story has been so prominent in australian life.

every country has these weird stories, which, for a whole sum of reasons, acquire a weird collective-talismanic power.

the UK was mad about paedophiles in the 'aughts. don't get me wrong, paedophiles are a Bad Thing, but the level of collective hysteria around them was really something else (podiatrist's offices were vandalized at one point).

god knows why the media push certain stories at such a high profile, and why masses of people quite unremoved from the issue go into convulsions.

Australia did actually have a proper go at investigating historical abuse via a royal commission, not like the whitewash that is the IISCA, people do take it seriously and the govt takes it seriously, no 'hysteria' involved at all.

A nation of immigrants does expect people to take citizenship seriously and not treat the place as a convenient second home when it suits them.
