australiaWe want to see the nation rejoice in the victories, and embrace courage, mateship, perseverance and sacrifice as honourable values to which our people can aspire. Our heroes need to be people who have accomplished something of value and honour.

It is also hoped that by teaching the history of the Partition plan (see History tab) that people will gain a greater understanding of the Middle East region and be willing to be ambassadors for truth.
