Straight from the heart of Jerusalem comes the only English talk show on broadcast radio in the State of Israel (106.5FM). Yishai and Malkah Fleisher, two well-known internet radio personalities, made the leap to broadcast radio on the new Galey Yisrael station in Israel blazing a trail to create content for the growing segment of the Israeli public that speaks English. Here at JewishPress.com we are proud to present this week’s Yishai Fleisher Show online for listening and for download in cooperation with Galey Yisrael radio.

This week’s show takes on Iran and the military option versus the real solution, ingathering of the diaspora at a fork in the road, Jewish family safety, and robots at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Liberation and the Jewish Fight Against Fear

Yishai and Malkah share stories of liberation in a week when the Torah portion (Vaeira) describes the beginnings of the Jewish people’s fight against Egyptian slavery three and a half thousand years ago. Yishai meets a Bedouin Muslim Israeli family that has served proudly in the IDF for generations; and Malkah describes her adventure trying to get a taxi to drive her home to the Mt. of Olives Jewish neighborhood. Don’t miss Yishai’s dream at the end of the segment that brings together high tech and the ancient daily routine of Jerusalem.

Policy Heavyweights Miss Obvious Iran Solution

A review of the increasingly serious media discussions on how to handle the Iranian regime’s determination to develop nuclear weapons. This segment provides all the angles, military options, sanctions and their effectiveness, motivation of the parties, assessment of covert operations, and more. Yishai analyzes several recent media pieces from Russia TV Today, The Charlie Rose Show, and Morning Joe on MSNBC and draws different conclusions.

Rock-Proofing and Middle Eastern Reintegration

Yehuda HaKohen, alternative peace activist and educator, joins Yishai at the garage while his windows are being rock-proofed. How to be safe with a young Jewish family in Eastern Jerusalem when agitating anti-peace elements in Arab society encourage teenagers to throw rocks at cars of Jewish residents. Why are the boys throwing rocks? What benefits does carrying a gun provide compared to alternative low tech measures? Yishai and Yehuda analyze how and why the legal system and international forces appear to be hindering progress toward normalization. The segment ends with a debate on the positive aspects of Hamas versus Fatah : why does the Arab man in the street vote for Hamas?

Shining A Light From Exile?

Yishai invites his friend and Yeshiva University fellow alum Rabbi Shimshon Nadel to the Talpiot area mall. They settle into the Aroma Cafe in the Kinyon HaDar mall to look at the fork in the road facing the Jewish population of the world: gather into the Jewish ancestral land in Israel, stay in the diaspora, or split the camps. Yishai and Rabbi Shimshon cover three issues that converge on this question: 1. How to be a light onto the nations? Where do the Jews belong? 2. For the purpose of safety should we split the camps of the Jewish people into those “home” outside Israel and those who return to Israel? 3. Is America safe? Why do we believe that America is a safer haven than Israel?
