Labor's Melissa Parke lists her areas of expertise as human rights, refugees, welfare, foreign policy, animal welfare, and the public service. 

Before entering parliament, Melissa Parke worked as a senior lawyer in the United Nations.

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.

In June 2004, Melissa undertook a position in the UN headquarters in New York in the Office of the Under-Secretary-General for Management.

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?
