An Australian Jewish lawmaker called on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to dump the nation’s current policy of rapprochement with Iran.

In a statement issued Monday, Michael Danby, a federal Labor member of parliament representing Melbourne Ports, said that Turnbull “can be a friend of Israel or a friend of the dangerous Iranian regime. He cannot be both.”

Danby has placed adverts in local media demanding Turnbull order Foreign Minister Julie Bishop to “halt and reverse this slide towards appeasement of the hardline, bellicose regime in Tehran.”
