Maurice Klein speaks with Justin Amler, policy analyst at the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) and L’Chaim – To Life regular contributor about the Writers Week at the upcoming Adelaide Festival 2023 in early March.

Justin, with his co-policy analyst at AIJAC Tammy Reznik, most recently had an important article in The Australian newspaper, “Writers Festival must not embrace anti-Semitic hate” which has raised the concerns of many in the community regarding a number of clearly hateful, anti-Israel anti-Semitic writers, who have been invited to participate at Writers Week https://aijac.org.au/op-ed/writers-festival-must-not-embrace-anti-semitic-hate .

Not one writer from Israel is on the Writers Week guest list, which begs the question: “Why?!”.  Australia has hate laws with lots of precedents for banning people and cancelling visas on “character grounds” as we heard during the interview, some of the so-called writers at this year’s Writers Week should be considered for cancellation.
