ENCA has loaded the content of the programme at Jewish Report’s request in three segments and with no advertising which makes for just 26 minutes of viewing.

This is a very worthwhile watch as it lays out the positions of the parties quite clearly.

Of interest was that in the several times that Desai mentioned sanctions of Israeli products, he spoke of "products from illegal settlements" (meaning the disputed, or occupied, territories commonly known as the West Bank).

Jewish Report asked Desai if this was a change in the position of the organisation. It is not, he said adamantly, it was simply coincidental as it was in reference to the points he was discussing at the time.
