Taking Sides


Back in the days when I lived in Western Australia, Liam Bartlett was a newsreader/radio announcer for Perth’s ABC. He has now progressed to being a reporter for Australia’s 60 Minutes.

The reason I mention this is that his first story for 60 Minutes – dealing with Australians fighting for the IDF and for Hizbullah – is now online. It is fascinating, and I think deals fairly with the subject matter (I also happen to remember the young Perth man interviewed, from when he was just a child). Liam manages to show what motivates these young men and women, and shows an understanding for the Israeli side. Richard Carleton he ain’t.

You can check out the story here.
