My question is to the Attorney-General, Senator Brandis. I refer to the Attorney-General's decision to weaken the Racial Discrimination Act. I also refer to the comments made by the executive director of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council, Dr Colin Rubenstein, that to pass the amendments as they stand would risk 'emboldening racists'. I ask the Attorney-General why he is emboldening racists?
