I will move on. Let's use a little more of that same example of communicating in relation to Australian aid funding terrorism in the Palestinian territories. Let's assume that I indicate my views. I have been communicating with a representative of the Israeli government, so that would qualify as collaboration. I have sent a message to the Minister for Foreign Affairs via WhatsApp or telegram or some encrypted option. What would constitute 'supervised by' in this section—section 92.1(1)(b)(ii)? I draw your attention to the fact that 'directed' is also there, so it's obviously not synonymous with 'directed'. How is 'supervised' distinguished from 'directed'?
