For you, Mrs Lippmann,

it'll be $8.50.

You should be ashamed

of yourself, Mr Steinberg,

taking advantage

of an old woman.

The next person

to take advantage of you,

Mrs Lippmann,

will be the first.

How's that lovely daughter

of yours?

- She's fine, thank you.

- Send her my best.

Good Shabbos to you,

Mr Steinberg.

Good Shabbos.

Ah, Mrs Lippmann!

- For your little friend.

- Oh, thank you.

That's very kind of you.

Thank you.

Something else, Mrs Lippmann?

Oh, um... let me see.

I'll have a piece of

that chocolate cake, please.

How big a piece would you like?

- Bit more.

- Here?

- That'll be fine, thank you.

- Good.



Something else, Mrs Lippmann?

Um, no.

No, that'll be all, thank you.

Mrs Wilburn?

Mrs Wilburn?

Oh, hello, Zucchini.

I've got something nice for you



Where do you live?

Get off me!


Open the door. Please do it!

Do you live alone? Huh?

I said, do you live alone?

You're a Jew.


Do not move, Jew.

Get up.


Sit there.


Please don't hurt me.

Killing you means nothing to me.

I simply rid the world

of one more Jew.

Do you have a car?

Are you deaf?

I said do you have a motor car?

Uh... uh...

Jamal, Yusuf

is with the Prophet.

In paradise.

Everything went wrong, Jamal.

Everything went wrong.

The number

you are calling is switched off.

Please try again later.

You're a Palestinian.

What have you done? I know

you've done something terrible.


I lived in Israel

for many years...

I said shut up, Jew!

I've known men like you

all my life.

You know nothing of me.

I know what it is to have men

stomp up the stairs,

march away

with the women and the children.

I've known this. I've seen this!

No! No, please! No!


Hello, Mama?


Are you there?

- H-hello.

- Oh, thank God.

Oh, Sophie.

I was so worried about you.

I have been ringing and ringing.


I- I was shopping, darling.

I'm fine.

Have you heard? There was a bomb

at the Balaclava Shule.

It's on TV. It's horrible.


Is anybody hurt?

People have been killed.

A lot of people.

Nobody knows how many yet.

They'll be people that we know.

You know that, don't you?

How could anybody do this?

I don't understand.

What would possess somebody

to do something like this?

Are you sure you're OK?


No, I'm... I'm fine.

You've got to

stay off the streets now.

You've got to stay inside.

That's what they're saying.

Or come to Sydney,

stay with us.

No, this is my home.

I lived here with your father.

I can't just leave.

Well, promise me

you'll just stay inside.

You... you worry too much.

Just promise me, OK?


Good. I'll call you tomorrow.

Kiss the children for me.


What are you talking about?

I- I said kiss the children.

But they're in New York.

You know that.

Are you OK?

I'm fine.

OK, stay inside.

I will call you tomorrow.

- I love you.

- I love you too, darling.


It doesn't work.

If you have any information

regarding this matter,

please call the number

on your screen.

Police are continuing their search

for a second man

they believe may be able to help

with their inquiries.

Again, that hotline number...

They will find you.

You know that, don't you?

It's just a matter of time.

When they find you,

they will kill you.

I am not afraid to die.

Oh, such a brave man.

If you do not shut up...

...I will kill you where you sit.

I'm an old woman.

Do you think I'm afraid to die?

No! I-I... no, I do have a car!

There is a car.

It was my husband's.

You take it.

You take that and you go.

Scream and you die.
