A note to Jon Faine (ABC 774 host):
When a former prime minister, the late Malcolm Fraser, informed you of the facts (on your radio show) regarding the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel in 1967 — you did not believe him.
Now with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (above R) visiting Australia, maybe it is a good time to interview Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull (above L) about the Israeli Air Force’s unprovoked attack on the ship.
During the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm. Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second attack. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, with 171 wounded.
