Greens MP Adam Bandt has labelled new Senator Jim Molan a “coward” and says he should be prosecuted for his service in the Iraq war.

The attack came after Senator Molan shared two videos of Muslim violence in Europe in March 2017.

Speaking on Sky News, Mr. Bandt let loose with his disgraceful comments against one of Australia’s most distinguished servicemen.

“When you share white supremacists videos and justify it by saying ‘I’m doing it to stimulate debate’, you’re a coward, you’re a complete coward.

“I tell you what if there was a proper inquiry into the war in Iraq in Australia… I think you’d find Jim Molan would probably be up for prosecution rather than praise.”

Senator Molan joined Ray Hadley to defend himself from Mr Bandt’s comments.

“It’s very, very silly isn’t it. I have no idea of the legal aspects of it but I will ask.”

The retired Major General also slammed allegations he committed war crimes in Iraq.

“I was more accountable for my actions on a day by day, minute by minute basis in Iraq than people like him have ever been in their lives.

“This is not the first time the Greens have gone for me.

“They seem to have a belief that anyone who goes to war is a war criminal.

“They don’t understand the International Criminal Court, they don’t understand war, they don’t understand anything to do with these subjects.”
