Hemo will be the guest speaker at UIA NSW’s 2019 Campaign Launch and AGM in the Eastern Suburbs on 19 November, North Shore Briefing on 20 November and Young Leadership event on 18 November.

He will also present at UIA Victoria’s AGM and Chanukah Community Morning Tea in Melbourne on 22 November, and at a UIA Western Australia Major Donor function in Perth on 25 November.

Hemo has been reporting on the Middle East, West Bank and Gaza Strip for over 14 years. He is sure to inform and surprise with stories of closely following recent major events including the al-Aqsa Intifada, Hamas takeover in Gaza, Arafat’s death, kidnapping of Gilad Shalit, Operations Cast Lead and Pillar of Defense.

Hemo also meets regularly with the leaders of Hamas and Fatah, as well as with wanted people from Palestinian organisations, prisoners and ordinary citizens. He is one of the few Israelis who regularly enter the territories and is considered very knowledgeable about the mysteries of Palestinian politics and society.

During his career, he has created memorable reports which included armed Palestinian gun battles, terror activists in refugee camps, joining a flotilla to Gaza; and entering hostile and radical Muslim centres in Europe.

Alongside his television career, Hemo has edited many magazine articles and short documentary films.

“We will be hosting one of the most informed journalists in Israel when it comes to the situation on the ground with the Palestinians. Our community should make every effort to attend one of these events, as we will also announce our incredible speaker for next year’s Campaign,” UIA CEO Yair Miller OAM said.
