Jonathan Hempel is a researcher for American Friends Service Committee and the co-founder of the Database of Israeli Military and Security Export, DIMSE.info. He joined us to discuss Israeli arms and security intelligence companies exporting to Australia. On Tuesday 16th February a Victorian research centre, a partnership between Israeli owned company Elbit Systems and the Victorian government, was launched. Human rights organisations and research reports have criticised Elbit (among other Israeli arms and security companies) for their involvement in occupation of Palestine and profiting from war.
