Your crimes against Palestinians, against innocent and defenceless women and children will not go unanswered. 2 months ago Israel rejected New Zealand’s ambassador simply because he is a representative to the Palestinian people. New Zealand has always stood proudly for its principles. We ask you to tell John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, to expel the Israeli ambassador.
