I think her statement - This is Australia- was what irritated me - an Australian Jew
yes thankfully this is Australia - we have the right to practice whatever religion we want and no it's not always Christianity, election date does not bother me, I doubt it will bother many very religious Jews anyway as they would not vote on a Saturday to start with
In my opinion.calling it crap when people try to ve culturally and racially inclusive displays great racial insensitivity.
Its been quoted on the previous page if you care to go and read it again.

Wow, little old me seems to have upset some of the strong BH voices. Sorry. You don't know my race or religion, I have not portrayed what I was trying to say very well. Forget my comment and move on. Thanks.
Thanks VicPark, I'm not very good with words and hate arguments, anyway take it as you will.
MummaOJ I'm not a strong BH voice but you quoted me. September 14 is Yom Kippur. I posted that because people seemed confused at the suggestion it was a significant religious date.
As I said subsequently, i understand Australia is a secular nation. I also mentioned subsequently I thought the PM was unnecessarily glib when she compared Yom Kippur with the AFL finals.
I don't think a person's faith compares with their football code, but I do respect we our a nation of many faiths. All of whom may vote.
Yes I quoted you because I have never heard that word and don't know how to spell it, hence quoting (I am on phone). I have not seen the news so haven't seen the PM refer to the football game. Sorry again.
