Segment 1: Rebranding Israel

Israel is often negatively portrayed in international media as being a war-like and hateful country and this week’s show kicks off with Yishai and Malkah talking about a recently released movie that is dedicated to showing that the opposite is true. The film, titled “Israel Inside”, shows how Israel is leading the way in not only technology but also social innovation and creating a new atmosphere in the Middle East. Yishai was recently able to interview the film’s writer Rebecca Shore along with Tal Ben Shahar, a former Harvard professor who also hosts the film, during breakfast at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. Topics for discussion include how family, chutzpah, education, taking action, and responsibility for the world, are important traits of both Israel as a nation and Israelis as people that have been blended together to create a culture rich with amazing innovations in a vast array of fields. Israel being destroyed in the media because of the lack of a positive image to counter constant negatives and how new media is allowing this image to be changed is highlighted. The segment wraps up with Yishai and Ben Shahar talking about how the perception of Israel in the international community needs to be expanded to ‘beyond the conflict’.

Segment 2: Should it Stay or Should it Go?

For the second segment of this week’s program, Yishai is joined by Knesset expert Jeremy Man Sultan to discuss the situation that is currently being played out in the Knesset, Civil Courts, and Israeli Supreme Court regarding the village of Migron in the Benyamin Region of Samaria. The Israeli courts have ruled that the village must be ‘evacuated’ by the Israeli government because it is in violation of land deals and the fate of the community has become a hot button issue across all aspects of Israeli life. Potential outcomes and solutions are discussed during this segment including a solution that would have the government moving citizens to other parts of Israel and the dismantling of the community.

Segment 3: The Will to Move Ahead

Rabbi David Bar-Chaim, the head of the Shiloh Institute in Jerusalem is interview by Yishai in the third segment regarding the current status of the Religious Zionist movement in Israel. Interview topics include a definition of ‘Orthodox’ Judaism and how the term is recent, the difference between galut mode Judaism and redemption mode Judaism and how Religious Zionism combines the two ideas, and Yishai talks about how for him, events such as the Passover Seder should become events that are felt deep down rather than just acted out. Rabbi Bar-Chaim and Yishai end their interview by talking about how that by moving to Israel, a Jew is able to take a ‘step-up’ in an observant sense and live a more pure Torah life.

Segment 4: Instead of  ‘Quiet with Quiet’

The last segment of this week’s show has Yishai being joined by his friend, former co-host, and director of the film “Iranium” Alex Traiman. Together, they discuss how following the tragic and brutal massacre of Jews in Toulouse, France, there is a realization that a lot of the hostility that is felt towards the Jewish People is coming from within Israel itself. Yishai talks about how Molotov cocktails were recently thrown at his housing complex and how Israeli soldiers need to be portrayed as un-merciful towards those that wish to hurt Israelis rather than as beat-boxing humanitarians. They also talk about how regimes such as those in Iran are like a ticking time bomb and a certain amount of pressure should be applied by Israel to ensure that they indeed fall and how these regimes often place blame and focus on Israel in order to shift the problems away from those at home. The segment and show wraps up with Yishai reading the statement that was made to the Jewish People by Chava (Eva) Sandler, the widow of the family murdered in Toulouse, France.

Yishai is joined by political correspondent Raoul Wootliff and Tamir Druz, director of Capra Energy — an independent, Israel-based energy advisory firm — to discuss and diagnose the controversy surrounding the natural gas reserves found off the coast five years ago.

Then, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to delve into this week’s Torah portion, Balak, where curses are transformed into blessings.

Then, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer for another segment of ‘Spiritual Cafe.’ They discuss the the biblical assertion that the ashes of a perfect red cow, blended with a few other ingredients, can create a mixture with the power to eviscerate the energy of death and make one pure. Does it work? Can the Jewish nation as a whole do something similar?

Hear from MK Dr. Dov Khenin and social media analyst Orit Perlov on today’s show. Yishai is joined in-studio by Khenin, a member of the communist Hadash party, which joined the Joint (Arab) List prior to the Knesset elections in March. Always in the opposition of the legislature, he nevertheless spearheads many interesting laws. He talks about his vision for Israel and the Middle East, with an emphasis on the future of the disappearing Dead Sea.

Then, Yishai is joined by Perlov, who follows and analyzes the discourse on social media in Arab states. Why have Arab youth been silent in the past year? Do they have hope for a better future? And what do they think about Israel?

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO))) Yishai is joined in-studio by Knesset insider Jeremy Saltan to discuss the report on the war in Gaza last summer and its “unsurprising” findings.

Then, Yishai is joined by his wife, Malkah, to talk about efforts to have a “normal” life where they live. After three nights of Ramadan, the Jewish community on the Mount of Olives has suffered three consecutive terror attacks.

Yishai deals with modern-day and ancient battles.
First he is joined by political activist and commentator Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author, among other books, of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” She sponsored the “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, which was attacked by jihadists, who were killed in a shootout. She tells Yishai about the challenges involved in fighting jihad in the US and Israel.

Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to talk about the internecine Jewish political battles in the Book the Numbers. Was the biblical character Korach a communist or a man of the people? A fighter for democracy or a jealous would-be leader? Why did he pick a fight with Moses? And why did he merit having the Prophet Samuel as his progeny.

Then, Yishai is joined by Dr. Mordechai Kedar, research associate at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and lecturer in the department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, to discuss the Druze community in Syria. It is in grave danger from jihadists on the slaughter. But Israel have a moral responsibility to protect them, because of their literal and figurative brothers and sisters in Israel who are loyal to the state?

Then, Yishai is joined by Israeli journalist and author Ben Dror Yemini, who says that though many people think that BDS is an organization or a movement, they’re wrong. It’s an atmosphere, Yemini asserts. It’s an “evil spirit,” not criticism of the occupation or settlements. Finally, Yishai hears from VOI Bureau Chief Daniel Seaman the tale of his grandparents’ burial on the Mount of Olives.
