Bob Carr's texts to Gillard reveal 'extraordinary' influence pro-Israel lobby had on former PM

"Bob Carr has published private text messages between himself and Julia Gillard to reveal the 'extraordinary' level of influence the pro-Israel lobby had on the former prime minister’s office. In a remarkable disclosure of private conversations, Mr Carr said he chose to publish the text messages in his book – Diary of a Foreign Minister – without getting Ms Gillard’s permission, because to do so was in the national interest."
