    Ok now I know what your talking about yes it does sound like he means don't hate bali because of it. It could have happened in Australia.

    Poor girl and her family what a horrible frightening experience

    I hope he also condemned what happened and showed sympathy?

    Horrible incident that happened. Absolutely awful. I felt sick in my stomach when I heard about it.

    But as for Joe Hockey's comments - it was very clearly a 'don't take it out on Indonesia and Bali - it could unfortunately happen anywhere' kind of comment.

    i think the key words are "put it in perspective" and "9yo girl abducted and almost raped". if he'd of just said dont let it put you off going there, and left it at that, thats different. you cant in any way shape or form put a girl being abducted and almost raped in perspective, even if it is to encourage people not to boycott the country.
