Thank you to everyone who came out to attend the ‘Different Perspectives on Israel’ discussion at the University of Auckland past Thursday 3rd October, between myself and John Minto.

It was so wonderful to have a sea of friendly faces in the room. Big thanks also to everyone who watched online and sent in messages of support.

I know I missed some opportunities and could have said some things better which I will (if there is a) next time. But all those gaffs and lapses are mine and mine alone, and I welcome feedback to continue to improve.
