Title: The UN votes to establish Israel (*from 0:23 mins)

Description: 76 years ago to the day the United Nations voted to establish the state of Israel. There were 33 votes for the Partition Resolution 181, 13 voted against and 10 abstained.


Title: Hon Alexander Downer AC – calling out antisemitism in Australia (*from 4:52 mins)

Description: Maurice Klein speaks with the Hon Alexander Downer AC, who is an Australian former politician and diplomat who was leader of the Liberal Party from 1994 to 1995, Minister for Foreign Affairs from 1996 to 2007, and High Commissioner to the United Kingdom from 2014 to 2018. Alexander tells us that Hamas, the Palestinian government of Gaza, are not people campaigning for a two State solution; they want to kill the Jewish people, eliminate the State of Israel and deny the Jewish people the right to self-determination. He does not see the situation that Israel is addressing as just the brutal cruelty of October 7, he sees it as a challenge to our whole civilization, and therefore the military capabilities of Hamas must be completely destroyed. We hear that Alexander has been shocked by the degree of antisemitism in Australia, with the left leading the march and describing the Australian Greens as an antisemitic cult and should be called out for their antisemitism!  According to him the left sees everything in the world about power relationships, the oppressed and the oppressor, once the Jews were the oppressed and now they are the oppressors; all Palestinians are oppressed and all Jews are the oppressors. He goes on to say that the UN's special rapporteur Francesca Albanese doesn't deserve to be taken seriously, she is just a warrior for Hamas and her visit to Australia did the UN brand a great deal of damage with the UN completely playing themselves out of the game. Also the United Nations Relief and Works Agency - UNRWA, are real Israel haters.

Description: David Schulberg exposes Francesca P. Albanese, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territories, who is an Italian international lawyer and academic. David calls on the secretary-general of the United Nations, António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, to dismiss her immediately for being blatantly influenced by the Palestinians in her supposedly impartial role.



Title: Ben Margalith and Shelley Krape – Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice is a play for our time (*from 41:29 mins)

Description: Morry Frenkel speaks with Ben Margalith and Shelley Krape, director and actor respectively, about Melbourne Shekespeare Company’s upcoming production of The Merchant of Venice. Ben talks about the humour found in the play as well as the darker side – the accusation that has been around for 400 years – that the play is anti-Semitic. Shelley, in a gender reversal role, plays Shylock and discusses how this adds another dimension to the character. The season of The Merchant of Venice runs from December 1st through to December 23rd at the Rose Garden in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens.
