Australia Post has been accused of jointly issuing racist stamps with Israel.
Prominent pro-Palestine blog Australians for Palestine is calling for people to boycott the 60c and $2.60 stamps that feature the Australian Light Horse at the Battle of Beersheba against Turkey in 1917.
Activist Sonja Karkar said she purchased the stamp and "received far more than I bargained for – nothing less, would you believe, than a dollop of Israeli propaganda".
Ms Karkar said the stamp is inaccurate as the town of Beersheeba was a Palestinian town at the time.
"This is a really disturbing and incorrect remark," Ms Karkar wrote.
"It is insulting to the memory of Palestinians who were terrorised into leaving their city Beersheba when the newly-created Israel captured it in 1948 and who have never been allowed to return to their homes."
The modern Jewish state of Israel was created in 1948 and has been in conflict with Palestine ever since.
A spokeswoman for Australia Post told news.com.au the Australian War Memorial consulted with the creation of the stamp as well as war historian Peter Stanley.Author: Jack Hawke. Approving editor: Nick Pearson.
