This may possibly be too little, and too late:

Senior Jewish Labor figures, including NSW general secretary Eric Roozendaal, have formed a political group to counter an anti-ALP backlash in the Jewish community.

Anger has grown within the Jewish community over a pro-Palestinian resolution put to parliament last November by outer-Sydney backbencher Julia Irwin. Inner-Sydney MP Tanya Pilbersek has described Israel as a rogue state and labelled Prime Minister Ariel Sharon a "war criminal".

Nice lady. For her part, Ms. Irwin has this to say:

I welcome the input of the Australian Jewish community to the discussion of Labor's Middle East peace policy.

How generous. She also says that Labor “cannot be bought”. Julia, the problem is that nobody wants to buy.
