16 Oct 2020, 4pm Shabbat Shalom Drive Aspiring politician, Greens candidate for Glen Eira Camden Ward in the upcoming Council elections DAVID ZYNGIER, requested (actually pressured) "to be grilled for free" on Shabbat Shalom. After obliging Mr. Zyngier with his interview request, I forwarded the podcast to him along with an invitation to join me in the studio when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. This was the reply I received.  David Zyngier <[email protected]>Sat 10/10/2020 12:19 PMTo:  Maurice Klein Maurice that was the most dreadful "interview" I have ever experienced. I have been interviewed by professionals from the ABC, SBS, 3AW Shock Jocks in Sydney radio and elsewhere. I have always been treated with respect while being asked "hard" questions. However I will be making an official complaint to J-Air. You continually interrupted me – talked over me – and wouldn’t allow me to answer your questions. What was the point of an "interview" if I was not allowed to speak! True to his word Mr. Zyngier has registered his complaint to J-AIR management. In Mr. Zyngier’s complaint "I expect an apology from Klein and the removal of the program from all your sites and social media". At the end of the interview, Zyngier made the comment " I want to thank you for the interview but you need to get you facts straight, I’m sorry Maurice" So I decided to review the interview and the facts. Mr. Zyngier was interviewed on the Talking To The Max program with Gary Max on 23rd September and made the following statement. "I need to emphasise that while I am standing as a Green, all decisions that I would make if I am elected to council would be based on the evidence before me, not by any preconceived party affiliation.    While I am a member of the Glen Eira Bayside Greens branch, that branch nor the party would have any influence of my decision making" Personally, I have serious reservations with a statement like that, what say you?

16 Oct 2020, 3pm Shabbat Shalom Drive Executive Director Australian Friends Of Rambam hospital in Haifa, VERED HAREL discussed the opening of three floors of car parking as a functioning Rambam-IDF COVID-19 hospital facility, launched by the Minister of Defense and Health Benny Ganzand the IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Major General Eyal Zamir. Israel is in the midst of its second COVID-19 wave, and Northern Israel is bearing the brunt. As the largest hospital in the north, Rambam Health Care Campus converted its Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital from a parking garage into the largest COVID-19 facility, capable of treating up to 770 patients. Teams work around the clock to provide the best possible care under unusually challenging circumstances. Everyone who enters must wear full PPE, and cannot eat, drink, or use the restrooms. They remain in the facility for two hours at a time. Patient welfare is important, and having enough lifesaving medical equipment is crucial. There is an urgent need for imaging equipment like MRI and ultrasound machines. Other urgent needs include mobile privacy partitions, earplugs, eye masks, and wall posters. Of equal importance is the wellbeing of the medical teams, who alternate between underground patient care and time above ground to rest.

16 Oct 2020, 3pm Shabbat Shalom Drive AJA PRESIDENT DAVID ADLER was waiting on Zoom to start the program off with his excellent article in this week’s The Spectator magazine,  UNRWA, where refugee services meet terrorism.  This is a must-read about Australia halving its annual funding of UNRWA from 20,000,000 to 10,000,000. This is still a waste of money given to what can only be described as the most corrupt hate supporting international organisation. I asked David if David Zyngier had apologised to him regarding a disgusting comment Zyngier had made about David.  AND MORE. Executive Director Australian Friends Of Rambam hospital in Haifa, VERED HAREL(at 33.18 mins) discussed the opening of three floors of car parking as a functioning Rambam-IDF COVID-19 hospital facility, launched by the Minister of Defense and Health Benny Ganzand the IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Major General Eyal Zamir. Last week’s guest David Zyngier was not happy Jan, telling me at the end of the interview that I should know the facts, also registering a complaint to J-AIR management. At 52.40 minutes I present the nature of the Zyngier not happy Jan complaint to J-AIR, also pointing out all the facts. Well worth a listen, you can decide on the facts.

Every Jew in Glen Eira should listen to this interview where I played a recording and asked David Zyngier about the Greens leader Adam Bandt, stating that  Israel’s 2014 Operation Protective was a MASSACRE. Fancy a want to be politician who prides himself on Tikun Olam, standing in a predominantly Jewish area sending out a tweet to a Jewish community leader with Covid 19 saying “couldn’t happen to a better person “, just because this community leader is on the opposite side of his hard-left politics  AJA President David Adler and his wife, good friends of mine, tested positive for COVID-19 which they likely acquired at Sydney Airport on arrival from Israel. David Zyngier’s comment on social media, "Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person! Where did he deny C19 was serious".

It isn’t the first time the Nippers are being introduced in Israel. The program was first launched in Ashdod in July 2015 by Surf Life Saving Israel (SLSI), another Australian-led campaign, and has been successfully operating there for the last five years, now funded by the local municipality.

The progressive Jews in America are still a huge worry with their collective heads definitely buried in the ground unable to smell the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel stench growing in the Democratic party. Having lost their way, they want to be more progressive Democratic than they want to be Jews.

28 Aug 2020, 3pm Shabbat Shalom Drive         The Girl in the Lion’s Mouth: Memoir of a Child Survivor of the Holocaust JNF Volunteer of the Year DITA GOULD has just written her memoir book THE GIRL IN THE LION’S MOUTH I spoke with Dita about her life’s story and all her very committed charity work. Yasher Koach Dita. Although she had written of her experiences previously, this is Dita’s first full-length memoir, beginning with the story of how, separated from her parents, she survived the Holocaust during the Second World War, in a world of hunger and isolation, by hiding with her sister in a most unlikely place—SS headquarters in Budapest.  Dita was less then eleven years old when she was forced into hiding with her sister who was six and a half years old. She was brave, resilient and courageous. These qualities have continued throughout her life. We follow Dita’s story as she recalls her family’s migration to Australia after the war, and we hear her passion in her roles as wife, mother, business owner, grandmother, and more.  In Australia Dita met her first husband and married. They had three children together, all boys. They lived in Melbourne and liked to travel. One unique feature of this story is her development of the well-known art gallery Gould Galleries, located in Melbourne, where she sold the works of famous Australian artists.  The memoir records, and pays homage to, the inspiring journeys that Dita made on her many travels abroad with her second husband and other friends and relatives.  She truly has a wonderful storytelling ability when it comes to sharing memories of her life experiences, and how her optimism pulls her through life’s challenges. Hers is a lone voice. Her story is testimony to a life that survived the difficulties of ghettos and war, then embraced a new homeland, with a subsequent shift in perspective to that of courageous and empowered grandmother. This book is about the many ups and downs that a migrant goes through when living in a new country. Its about war and its atrocities. But it is also about family life and living as a married person, sharing day to day challenges.  Dita has been involved in many fundraising projects in the Jewish Community in Melbourne and has been committed to volunteer and charity work. The book talks about these times and her passion for Israel. The book is separated into four parts. Part One is about Europe from 1933 – 1948. We waited there, destitute, so cold and so hungry, outside the crowded soup kitchen. From inside, the aroma of the warm food that we had been denied wafted tantalisingly toward us. ‘I am not hungry. I am not hungry,’ I repeated to myself. Then I recognised a man walking past us and I caught his sleeve in sudden desperation. ‘Mister, I know you.’ He looked down at me and asked, ‘Who are you?’ ‘I am Nandor Deutsch’s daughter and this is my sister Part Two is about migration and Settling into Australian Life.  On reflection, I now feel that the main reason this house was so important to me is because it was there that, for the longest time in my life, I had such a steady attachment to a place. I lived in the house summer and winter and felt it was the most relaxing place there could be on earth. On arrival, after kicking off my shoes and walking barefoot on the wooden floors, I acquired a different persona. Part Three is about Dita’s Life and Travel with her family.  Dita’s passion for travel is evident throughout the book. She takes us on a journey throughout her returns to Europe, her trips to Israel and her love of India.  She is passionate about place and history, art and culture. The travel stories throughout the book are not mere travel writing, but actual detailed accounts taken from diaries, memories and photographs of happy and fun times.  We went to the Jewish cemetery … The caretaker tried to find the records but was unsuccessful. No inscriptions were legible but a small label was attached on the side of the grave stones. We searched in vain for my grandmother’s stone before leaving. ‘They are all my grandmothers,’ I said, turning to Anna.  Our guide then drove us to Bratislava where we re-joined our bus tour group. Part Four is called “Looking Back, Looking Forward” and is a summation of her approach to life and love of living. To describe a life is not easy. When I think of all the people who have been part of my life, it is like a movie. All have enriched my life. Some stayed for a lifetime while others contributed for a while then fell by the wayside. I carry them in my subconscious always. In each section we are introduced to many stories about Dita and her life. These stories form a larger picture of the kind of person she was growing up, as a young person, a mother, and grandmother. She is candid and open about her life and its many challenges.  This book is an introduction to the way of life for a Holocaust survivor. It is as much about a normal life as it is about a person whose family was persecuted and in hiding. Dita is an expert at making her life as wonderful as possible. This comes across in the many stories she shares about her family and friends.  There is the sense that Holocaust survivors would be angry and or bitter about their experiences. This is not the case with Dita. Her life is a testimony to the strength and passion which grows when you are faced with challenges early on in life.  In The Girl in the Lion’s Mouth we are taken through her story, her history, and her life in detail. A compelling voice shines through, this is a story anyone interested in the Holocaust should read. The Girl in the Lion’s Mouth is out now through Hybrid Books and available to purchase through Dita’s website. Exploring Israel With Effi Shabbat Shalom  Am Yisrael Chai   PEACE

Well low and behold ALMA went global this week with the exposing of multiple missile launching sites deployed by the Hezbollah terrorist organization in the heart of heavily populated civilian areas of Beirut. So it was necessary to ask Sarit(at 30.25mins) back this week for a first-hand update on this important discovery and exposure. The Israeli Alma Research and Education Centre exposed 28 new sites in which Hezbollah stores its weapons in civilian structures and in the proximity of densely populated areas throughout Lebanon, with the highest concentration in the capital city of Beirut, the Beqaa Valley, and southern Lebanon, areas controlled by the terror group. Alma stressed that Hezbollah plans to launch these weapons toward civilian targets and population concentrations in Israel from within or adjacent to residential buildings, believing that this tactic will grant it immunity against the IDF’s counterstrikes. My third guest today is NADIA MATAR(at52.40mins) with the Women In Green Sovereignty Movement-Ribonut.

The Angel Network is a voluntary organization, run solely via the power of social media.  The Angel Network, goal is to create a gateway for giving. A platform from which helping where help is needed, is easily accessible to anyone wanting to do a little more, and give a little more. The Angel Network enables, facilitates, and mobilises acts of kindness. The Angel Network is not affiliated to any one charity, but rather offers assistance to established welfare organisations, whenever and wherever help is needed. We provide a portal to offer help wherever help is needed, by giving a hand UP, rather than a handout.  The Executive Committee is made up of Four Everyday Angels: Glynne Wolman (founder), Lindi Katzoff, Hayley Glasser, Beverley Smith, In Cape Town,  Dalia Katz Janene Nates, Melanie Levey, Terri Marks AND in Durban, Tanya Altshuler, Rachel Kinloch.The Angel Network does not receive any government funding, and do not incur any operating costs. Every cent donated is given directly to our beneficiaries. We are wives, mothers, aunts, nieces … we are every day citizens who want to make a meaningful difference to our communities and our country. The Angel Network provides support to thousands of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa by working closely with over 50 non-profit organizations and outreach centres. Together with input and assistance from over 25 000+ dedicated Facebook members, volunteers and sponsors, we operate from Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town. We are committed to investing in children so that the world around them can ultimately benefit. If a child is provided with enough to eat, a safe environment, an education and if they are heard, understood and recognized, they in turn will work to raise their standard of living, not only for themselves but for their family and their entire community. The Angel Network provides a platform for being able to help merely by belonging to Facebook. Members enjoy making a difference in a tangible way without getting donor fatigue and so, for example, are happy to donate sleeping bags to the homeless, blankets to the cold and backpacks and stationery to school children who have gone without for far too long. In the words of Helen Keller “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”.  We are all in this together and we need to take care of ourselves and each other.  We all feel hunger and anxiety the same way.  Our chances of survival as a society are enhanced when we think beyond ourselves and help others.  We need to be kind, compassionate, thoughtful and considerate.  We are resilient and this too shall pass, perhaps like a kidney stone, but it will pass and we will have learnt so many valuable lessons as a result of what we have endured.  Join our facebook page The Angel Network – helping where help is needed and/or visit our website www.theangelnetwork.co.za and see where you would like to get involved.  People are also welcome to email me should they have any queries.  We are a registered PBO (Public benefit organization) and so can issue 18a certificates for donations.Exploring Israel With Effi  [email protected]  972 52 8566667 Israel Tour 2017 Caesarea        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu_tSjuVTSYChag Shavuot Sameach  Shabbat Shalom  Am Yisrael Chai   PEACE

Thus, we have decided to merge our Monthly Newsletter, and our Weekly Reports, to a new product: Alma’s Weekly Newsletter! Here, you can find all of Alma’s posts, articles, analyses, and webinars from the previous week. This week’s highlight: “The Golan Portfolio” Webinar. In the Syrian block, last week, despite voices within Israel suggesting that the Iranians are withdrawing from Syria, we have concluded that the Iranians are here to stay. Moreover, the rumors suggesting that the Russians are looking to outset Assad seem to be due to the clash with Iran over dominance in Syria. Looking at the Lebanese border, the discussion is now at its peak in the UNSCR over the renewal of UNIFIL’s Mandate at the end of August. In Israel, we are hearing for the first time, statements doubting not only the effectiveness of UNIFIL but also whether or not it should remain in south Lebanon. Meanwhile, Hezbollah has targeted the Lebanese Ambassador to the UN, claiming her views on UNIFIL’s Mandate are repetitions of the American and Israeli statements – suggesting she is acting like a traitor, serving the American and Israeli interest instead of that of the Lebanese’.

Voting for the 13 Australian delegates to the 38TH World Zionist Congress ends 28Th MAY. Being a signatory to the Jerusalem Program is a requirement to participate in the coming World Zionist Congress. The Jerusalem program was most recently revised at the meeting of the Zionist General Council in June 2004: Zionism, the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, brought about the establishment of the State of Israel, and views a Jewish, Zionist, democratic and secure State of Israel to be the expression of the common responsibility of the Jewish people for its continuity and future. The foundations of Zionism are: 1. The unity of the Jewish people, its bond to its historic homeland Eretz Yisrael, and the centrality of the State of Israel and Jerusalem, its capital, in the life of the nation; 2. Aliyah to Israel from all countries and the effective integration of all immigrants into Israeli Society. 3. Strengthening Israel as a Jewish, Zionist and democratic state and shaping it as an exemplary society with a unique moral and spiritual character, marked by mutual respect for the multi-faceted Jewish people, rooted in the vision of the prophets, striving for peace and contributing to the betterment of the world. 4. Ensuring the future and the distinctiveness of the Jewish people by furthering Jewish, Hebrew and Zionist education, fostering spiritual and cultural values and teaching Hebrew as the national language; 5. Nurturing mutual Jewish responsibility, defending the rights of Jews as individuals and as a nation, representing the national Zionist interests of the Jewish people, and struggling against all manifestations of anti-Semitism; 6. Settling the country as an expression of practical Zionism.
