    Alerted to the program by J-Wire, I saw it and it went something like this:

    Antony Loewenstein: “Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad”.
    Avner Gvaryahu: “Israel and Jewish soldiers are bad bad bad.”
    ABC Host: “Yea I read your book: Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad.”

    Journalist from “The Australian”:

    “Israel is only democracy in the region. Its existence is threatened. Noone speaks of the missiles that rain on Israel every day.”

    Antony Loewenstein: ignores the mention of missiles, but repeats “Israel Apartheit state”

    Avner Gvaryahu: ingnores the mention of missiles but repeats: “Israel and Jewish soldiers are bad bad bad”

    ABC Host: Ignores the mention of missiles.

    THE END.

    epilogue:

    With the dodgey purchase of a place in the (largely) discredited UN security council, you just watch the demonisers and defamers go into overdrive….

    I watched the show. If a balanced television network was interviewing a leftist anti-Zionist guest wouldn’t you expect them to balance the guest with a pro-Israeli supporter from the mainstream or right? This is the ABC so they “balanced” the “Breaking the Silence” guest with one of the most extreme anti-Israeli “as-a-jew” types Anthony Loewenstein who was even too extreme for Gvarhahu who disagreen with him on BDS.

    Loewenstein’s attack on Israel that it’s racist etc could have been made about any and every one of Israel’s neighbours but of course was not.

    Yeh good one Ben ,l no Israel advocacy in Australia which would leave the Palestinian/ Arab / Muslim lobbyists and Jewish/ leftist Progressives ,anti- Zionists open slather to continue indoctrinating our kids and demonizing Israel in our media unopposed I’m sure you would love that .

  4. michael says:

    Yeh I’m sure Australians for Palestine, AJDS, ACJC and IAJV , ABC / Fairfax employees will all be excited!!

    I’m sick to death of these people who come here either paid for or supported by the New Israel Fund.

    If they feel there are problems with Israel, that’s where they should remain Those who seek to drag us down revel in this garbage.

    • Ben says:

      By the same token shoudn’t Israeli advocacy and fundraising and Zionist lobbying remain outside Australia ? Sauce for the goose ……

      • David says:

        Ben

        I am happy to let the Australian public hear these enemies of Israel vent their spleens and make it absolutely clear that those people in Australia who support and contribute monies to the New Israel Fund that sponsors such visits are fully aware of where their support and money is going.

    Saw it:

    Antony Loewenstein: Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad.
    Avner Gvaryahu: Israel and Jewish soldiers are bad bad bad.
    ABC Host: Yea I see your book: Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad.

    Journalist from “The Australian”:
    Israel is only democracy in the region. Its existence is threatened. Noone speaks of the missiles that rain on Israel every day.

    Antony Loewenstein: Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad.Does not mention missiles, but repeats “Israel Apartheit state”
    Avner Gvaryahu: Israel and Jewish soldiers are bad bad bad, does not mention missiles.
    ABC Host: Yea I see your book: Israel and the Jews are bad bad bad. Does not mention missiles.

    THE END.

    “Their” ABC wanted to be like the anti-semitic BBC when it grew up. It has grown up. And now, that we have bought a place at the UN security council, just wait for the Australian vote….
