      ISRAEL TO LOBBY ABC OVER NERVE GAS DOCUMENTARY
      Sydney Morning Herald, 7/1/03
      http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/07/01/1056825386691.html

      The Israeli government will lobby Australia's national broadcaster to
      ditch plans to screen a controversial BBC documentary on the Jewish
      state.

      The program, Israel's Secret Weapon, asserts that Israel has used
      nerve gas against Palestinians and possesses an arsenal of chemical,
      biological and nuclear weapons.

      ABC Television today said the program would be screened but it had
      not yet been scheduled.

      Israel's ambassador to Australia, Gaby Levy, said he would ask the
      ABC to reconsider airing the program.

      Head of Israel's government press service, Daniel Seaman, said the
      BBC program bordered on Nazi propaganda and anti-Semitism.

      Israeli officials have been banned from appearing on the BBC as a
      result of the program and visa restrictions have been imposed on BBC
      journalists.

      But Mr Levy said no such action would be taken against the ABC
      because it was not involved in the documentary's production...
