ISRAELI FLAG WILL NOT FLY OVER FIJI: Israeli PM Netanyahu will not visit Fiji nor will he participate in summit of leaders of Pacific Island states; his trip cancelled from a security point of view - Jerusalem Post
Israeli journalists inform Fijileaks that Israel is punishing Fiji in retaliation for Fiji's Peter Thomson, the UN General Assembly president, wearing a Palestinian flag scarf. The recent ammunition haul and arrests of certain individuals in Lautoka makes trip "unsafe from security point of view", say Israeli journalists and sources in Israeli Foreign Ministry; Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will still visit Australia and Singapore
"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday announced an upcoming trip to the Republic of Fiji, which he explained as part of an ongoing bid to bolster Israel’s standing in international forums such as the United Nations. “Why am I going to Fiji? Because fifteen countries, fifteen islands that each one has a vote in the UN are coming to that meeting,” Netanyahu said, without elaborating.

The security by Fiji at the boarder control is very weak and they cannot even detect arms and ammunitions coming in lately...so its beter for the Isreil PM not to come to Fiji and instead visit Australia and Singapore where he will be safe and secure.

The decision by Israeli PM Netanyahu is logical, reasonable and welcome. It is a principled stand that must be understood by the Voreqe and Thomson. The two men are supposed to represent Fiji. But unfortunately, they do not. They hold positions, but lack our principles and values. We support Israel and the values and principles of democracy.

What about some very legitimate rights and grievances of the Palestinian People Tomasi ? Many of whom have been there since Moses's time, at least. No, the Israeli government is a bad arse oppressor - as bad arse as Bainimarama -for sure.
