Maori Party MP Hone Harawira has a tactful way with words. According to Liberty Scott, Harawira, speaking in Maori, had this to say about the Middle east situation
“The violence perpetrated by the Jews must stop”.
In February 1987 Harawira represented the Pacific Concerns Resource Centre at a Physicians for Social Responsibility Conference in Moscow. According to Peacelink of September 1987, Harawira made this equally balanced and diplomatic statement.
“In terms of resource monopoly, economic slavery and potential for death, European civilisation is more barbaric, savage and destructive than any other since the beginning of time. . . and at this time I wish to recognise the Soviet people for hosting this conference . . . Our fight for a better world will only be won . . . when the white man comes home.”
