Carr is bashing Israel, so what's new, to save his face for the blatant lie that he told which was exposed by one of his OWN!
Ben Zygier was an Israeli Citizen after making Aliyah. According to Human Rights Lawyer, Avigdor Feldman, everything was done by the book. He had full legal representation and this matter was heard all the way to the Supreme Court - Vice Prime Minister Moshe "Boogie" Ayalon.
As for former Australian Secret Agent, Warne Reid's comment that Zygier could not have killed himself in a cell with security cameras, he does not seem to understand that he killed himself in the bathroom. He obviously has never heard of Actor Dudu Topaz's suicide when he strangled himself on the floor use a tap!
As usual, some will do anything to bash Israel and the once friendly Australia has now become a member of the international Islamaphobic mob of hatred of Israel and maybe even Jews!
11. Israel should ask Australia for clarifications
After what is known so far it was the hostile behavior of the Australian Intelligence that caused the whole tragic story.
12. I agree with Australia!
Too much is shielded by the ubiquitous term "security" which can justify any manner of abuse today. We do not have all of the answers but we do know that an idealistic, educated young oleh from Australia was approached by the mossad and somehow wound up cut off from the world, incarcerated, made a nameless prisoner and died a horrible death in isolation. This is a shameful circumstance and any good Israeli, good Zionist, good Jew and good person should want to get to the bottom of this. If this was "negligence" someone should not get away unscathed. How would you feel if it was your son? There are a lot of questions that need to be answered.
13. #12: Ask the Americans about Guantanamo Bay and "rendition"!
And they haven't got 22 Arab countries trying to wipe them out!
If Human Rights Lawyer Avigdor Feldman states that all was done by the book and the Supreme Court upheld the detention of Zygier pending trial, then what's wrong with that?
You might not know that Australia has called a General Election on Saturday (the norm in that country) which is Yom Kippur this year and the opposition is using Israel as a whipping boy and Carr has made a fool of himself!
If you are so concerned about right and wrong why don't you complain about the Palestinian Terrorists being held without trial? Now that is another issue or does your self-righteousness not apply to non-Jews?
I am no supporter of the extreme right but I do agree that when it comes to the survival of Israel and the Jewish people, well, it might be hard but the end justifies the means!

"How would you feel if it was your son"? Horrible!
"How would you feel if your son's death (or any other) could have been prevented by stopping this guy, who 'presumably was on the brink exposing secrets put in place in order to prevent harming your son (or any other).
IF he was working for the Mossad, he knew the name of the game and that betrayal comes with a price, for everyone......except the enemy!
15. I think that there is no how not to agree with Eli #12.
He is right!
16. The guilty party here is.....
Encouraging an Australian citizen to be a traitor to Australia by putting Australians at risk in the ME is not expected from a supposedly friendly country.
Australia also has a long memory.
