On Tuesday, before all the facts were known, Julie Bishop was quick to issue a written statement calling on Israel to "refrain from using excessive force" against "Palestinian protesters".
"Palestinian protesters" hey Ms Bishop?
Prominent UK Conservative politician Nick Boles admits he got it wrong with his early criticism of Israel's response.
Et tu Julie?
Yesterday I criticised Israel's handling of the protests at the Gaza border. I should not have been so quick to judge. We now learn that the 50 of those killed were Hamas terrorists. Israel had an absolute right to defend itself against such attacks. https://t.co/nkFO1XWUDh— Nick Boles MP (@NickBoles) May 16, 2018
Senior Hamas official sets the record straight on who was killed in last Hamas-orchestrated riots: "50 of the 62 martyrs were Hamas". Take his word for it. This was no peaceful protest. pic.twitter.com/oop2y3oWrB— Jonathan Conricus (@LTCJonathan) May 16, 2018
