Personal message from Sean Fitzpatrick – ACT Candidate, Ohariu

I’ve been asked to post this personal statement from Sean, and under the circumstances, I’m happy to do so

Hi Cameron,

I have already sent this info to you via facebook, however to be thorough I am emailing you as well.

I just want to let you know that I do not at all support the BDS campaign to boycott Israeli business and investments. As someone who is on record as being very pro-Israel it disturbs me greatly that I am being associated with this sort of thing.

I have set the record straight with the NBR and also on my facebook page. I have received a lot of very positive and encouraging messages of support for this from folk in the NZ Jewish Council. They understand how mendacious this group is by presenting themselves as one thing but promoting quite a different agenda.

I have asked them to delete my name from their list of supporters and rest assured will be raising hell if they do not.

If you wish to adjust your post on the topic to no longer include my name that would be much appreciated – though it is entirely up to you. rest assured though I am no anti-Israel type, least of all anti-Semitic. And BDS are a bunch of two faced con artists.

Keep up the good work, Whale Oil.

Sean Fitzpatrick – ACT Candidate, Ohariu.

This has come about due to this article from the weekend, where we disclosed New Zealand politicians that had signed up for an Anti-Israel campaign.

At the time, commenters were taken aback by Sean’s involvement.  It’s good to see the petition was misrepresented to him, and as such I’ll update the article to point to this one.
