The infamous "Wailing Wall Incident" of 1929 is also recounted..
Political families linked tribally with several families in mandated Palestine,
akin to Calabrian mafia families.
The massacre of Hebron is one of the most striking incidents of this period, but there are others.
One was at Silwan settled by Yemenite Jews during the 19th Century -- these Jews were also expelled in 1929.
Important reference cited in this talk to the verified involvement of Palestinian leaders
in the Holocaust is given in the detailed review by
Elliot A Green. cited in recent article on Ynet

Language counts. Choose langauage to match the situation,
whether it be one of dialogue, education, or advocacy. There is an initial discussion with David Olesker,
who just on 30 years ago became aware of the emergence of a violent and aggressive Israel bashing.
He classifies his audience into saints, sinners, and salvageables.
Most of society falls into the "salvageable" category.
This is highlighted in a discussion of the incredibly evil ISM,
whose objective is to place well-meaning but poorly informed and in fact deliberately
falsely informed Westerners in position nof actual physical danger in the hope of death or injury
that can somehow be blamed on the "wicked Israelis".
Morry and Gabby discuss the emergence of the radical Israel bashes.
The first step was a change in terminology from the situation as being one of the Israeli Arab
conflict to being one of the Israel Palestinian Conflict. One recent version is to refer --
in a totally historically false manner --
to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian Territory.

Jews have lived outside Israel in almost all the countries of the Middle East for more than two thousand years.
Some Jewish communities, such as those in Iraq and Egypt, were over three thousand years old
when the State of Israel was reborn as a modern state in 1948.
In 1946 there were over a million such Jews.
Yet today many of these communities have vanished -- others are extremely tiny.
In this program
Gabby and Morry discuss the expulsion of more than 850,000 Jews
from Arab lands and Iran, of whom over 650,000 sought refuge in Israel.

pizzeria before her murder by Palestinian heroe
Shuheil al-Masri, who was "martyed", aided by Ahlam Tamimi (right) who is enjoying her time in an Israeli jail,
with no regrets for her action.
as detailed here
On 9th August 2001 Melbourne girl Malki Roth, aged just 15, was amongst 15 killed in a bombing at
the Sbarro pizzeria in Tel Aviv. Malki was a girl who had already dedicated herself to caring for people with disabilities.
In her memory the Malki Foundation was set up, as is explained by Joe Roth.
But mention must also be made of the Palestinian narrative, wherein the suicide bomber,
is to be forever remembered for his achievement of killing so many women and children.
How to establish a valid narrative: start from facts rather than convenient myths.

Broadcast 2: Understanding world news. In today's post industrial society
reportage of events is in accordance with the narrative adopted by the reporter.
Facts not consistent with the chosen narrative are not to be considered.
What goes counter to the chosen narrative is simply not reported, and other happenings are distorted to fit.
Morry points out as an example a plan of Israel's foreign minister Lieberman to
make Gaza totally autonomus with EU funds to construct a Gaza power station.
This plan in all details runs counter to popular reporter narratives of how Israel behaves
so has not been reported in Australian newspapers. Yet reported in the Palestinian newspaper Na'an on 16th July, and also in the Jerusalem Post.
But, to repeat, not newsworthy as the plan could not be presented as showing Israel acting as a powerful bully to Gaza.

Many of the 975,000 Jews expelled from Middle Eastern and North African countries
who came to Israel were placed in tent cities called maabarot.
Some families lived as long as twenty years in maabarot before
moving to regular housing. Here are some scenes of maabarot life
in Israel in the early years of the reformed state.
