I heard a figure the other day that there are about ten thousand Australian born Jews who are now also Israelis living in Israel. Perhaps ten percent or more of the Australian born Jewish population. Antisemitic ignoramuses such as those in the Fairfax media, and I guess now the Australian offshoot of the Guardian, will take this as evidence of something sinister. The "dual loyalty" canard that they reserve only for Jews. As Australia and Israel have identical values when it comes to anything important such as basic human liberty and repugnance for dirty minded superstitious violent men who go to enormous lengths to suppress it, Australians who are not bigots welcome and encourage this. It proves what a dynamic place Israel is and the opportunities it can offer including to Australia.
One of these Aussies is Israellycool and this is a poster from his/her site.

"The fact of the matter is, this is a scene you are unlikely to ever see anywhere else in the world. In fact, I challenge you all to name a place where this could be other than Israel.
"The fact of the matter is that only in Israel do both the girl in the bikini AND the woman in the Burka not fear any repercussions for being seen next to each other.
"The fact of the matter is that the woman in the Burka feels safer in Tel Aviv than she would in her own village/town. She knows that she can walk unhindered down a beach, smell the sea air, enjoy the sound of the crashing waves – and other cliches – without anyone posing any moral authority over her.
"The fact of the matter is the woman in the bikini also feels safe to walk down the beach unmolested by men that think that dressing in such a way provokes rape."The fact of the matter is that anyone who really knows and understands, anyone who is completely honest with himself/herself KNOWS that this could ONLY be in Israel. "
And to top it off, and if I'm not terribly mistaken, those are tattoos on the girl on the right's left shoulder and upper right thigh. Tattoos are taboo in most forms of Jewishness. Quite right too.
