Labor's Melissa Parke lists her areas of expertise as human rights, refugees, welfare, foreign policy, animal welfare, and the public service.
Her employment began with the UN peacekeeping mission in Kosovo in 1999, and this was followed by two and a half years working in Gaza for the international legal division of UNRWA, the UN agency that works to assist Palestinian refugees.
So ... she would know that all this terrorism stuff is no risk at all to a nation like Australia.
Apparently, it's all just politics.
How do people like this get elected?
