(Baby-doll protest outside the Health Ministry's offices in Jerusalem over Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman's alleged aid to suspected child sex abusers, March 4, 2019. The sign reads, "Litzman, protect the children, not the abusers!" (Channel 13 screen capture).

The Liberal Member for Wentworth, Dave Sharma, until 2017 the very successful Australian Ambassador to Israel stated in The Australian today that the failure of the Israeli justice system to extradite alleged child molester Malka Leifer for 74 charges of sexual abuse against three Melbourne schoolgirls is "just not fair on these girls, it’s not fair on other victims, it’s not fair on the Australian people and in fact I don’t believe it’s fair on the Israeli people, too, because Malka Leifer is fast becoming the face of Israel.”

Harsh words from someone who knows and cares. Similar sentiments have been voiced by former Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu and prominent members of the Jewish commumity such as Jeremy and Issi Leibler; anti-child abuse campaigner Manny Waks and the Liberal MP` for Caulfield David Southwick. Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne has described the situation as "concerning".

Social media is abuzzz with comments of disgust and outrage at the unimaginable pain and suffering the three sisters; Dassi Erlich, Nicole Meyer and Ellie Sapper have been forced to endure since the 74 charges were made in Melbourne a decade ago.  With no less than 58 hearings in the Israeli courts, hearings impeded by the ultra-orthodox religious zealots who influence and control both the judiciary and the health ministry that insist this monster is too psychologically frail to stand trial.

Israeli Ambassador Mark Sofer must also hear the concerns and outrage of this despicable situation from the wider Australian public through this petition. There is a long and honorable tradition of friendship between our two nations however unless the Israeli Government and relevant ministries put an end to the 'kangaroo court' (irony intended) and put this evil woman on a plane to Australia now, this relationship will suffer imeasurable damage.
