Courage in Reserve Duty, Israeli Democracy in New York & Lightning Above the Sky

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015


Yishai returns from a week of IDF reserve duty and reflects that there are only two kinds of people: the courageous and the cowardly. But to survive, Israel must have courage. Then, Yishai talks with Prof. Yoav Yair who worked with Israeli astronaut Col. Ilan Ramon to identify “Sprites” – large-scale electrical discharges that occur high above thunderstorm clouds. Now Yair is concerned with global climate change and tells Yishai that leaders must prepare for radical change in the Middle East. Finally, the Jerusalem Post Policy Conference caused fireworks with Caroline Glick accusing Israeli security officials of failing to attack Iran, then the crowd booed U.S Treasury Secretary Jack Lew as he claimed that the Obama Administration has done everything possible to stop Iranian nuclear ambitions and protect Israel. Yishai is joined by the Jerusalem Post’s Oped Editor Dr. Seth Frantzman and Magazine Editor Laura Kelly to discuss the raucous conference and the question of whether this was American-style democracy in action.

Rabbi Riskin and Caroline Glick Have a Chat

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Their discussion begins at 6:20 (they switch back and forth a little bit between Hebrew and English).

The New Latma

The latest Latma – HaKol Shafit, with English subtitles.

I recommend watching the Any Boycott, and Hanin Zoabi segments.

My Mention in Ha’aretz, Mistakes by Writer Allison Kaplan Sommer

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
As my husband, Yisrael Medad, blogged and others have told me, my Caroline Glick post was mentioned and quoted in Ha’aretz, ROUTINE EMERGENCIES, by Allison Kaplan Sommer. I don’t pay for their “premium” which gives unlimited access to their site. I couldn’t get the article on my computer, so people sent it to me by copying, which of course can be done. I’m only going to quote the relevant sections about me and what I think Sommer got totally wrong.

It is such outspokenness that causes some of Glick’s fans on the right to voice distress – not pleasure – at the prospect of her signing up with the Likud. Batya Medad, writing in the blog “Shiloh Musings” warned that if Glick joins Netanyahu, that her one-state solution “hard-hitting opinions” will be “muzzled window-dressing” in the Likud, and she will merely act as “window-dressing” for Netanyahu. “It’s because I agree with and respect Caroline Glick that I want her to stay on the outside where she won’t be muzzled and disciplined. We need an “untied” Caroline Glick!!” Medad and company needn’t panic just yet. Glick’s Likud spot is far from a done deal, and she hasn’t even confirmed that an offer was made. It’s not clear precisely how politically advantageous for Netanyahu choosing her would be. Glick is far from a household name to non-English speaking Israelis, and her public repudiation of the two-state solution puts her in the politically problematic right end of the Likud spectrum. It’s not a political position she can fudge or conceal. Her latest book, after all, is titled The Israeli Solution: A One State Plan for Peace in the Middle East.

First of all, to refer to Glick as “far from a household name to non-English speaking Israelis” is totally false. She is bilingual and has an extremely large Hebrew-speaking fan base. Latma was/is in Hebrew besides a couple of their songs. I think the Anglo writer Allison Kaplan Sommer is just projecting her own language restrictions/limitations here. There’s plenty of Hebrew on Glick’s facebook page, and she has been in Israel for a long time.

I’m a cynic and I have a nasty suspicion that Bibi wants Glick in the party Likud Party Knesset list for one reason and one reason only, to get votes. As much as he couldn’t stand Moshe Feiglin, he can’t deny that Feiglin brought in votes, but it was clear to all that those votes won’t return. Feiglin supporters didn’t even show up to vote in the Likud Primaries. Many are joining Bennett’s Jewish Home, or Otzma Yehudit or are just plain disenchanted with politics.

Caroline Glick will attract votes and I’m sure that the “election events planners” would love a debate between her and Ayelet Shaked who agree on just about everything except which party to support.

Caroline Glick to be Offered Likud Spot

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

PM Benjamin Netanyahu will reportedly be offering the reserved spot for women on the Likud list, position #11, to Caroline Glick, according to an Israel Channel 10 report.

If it proves to be true, that’s awesome.

If she says “yes”, even more so.

Glick told The Jerusalem Post, “I have not been offered anything in a formal manner but I am flattered to hear I’m under serious consideration.”

It’s always a pleasure to watch Caroline Glick take on those that attack Israel or try to explain why attacking Israel is OK.

If Co-Existence is Impossible, Then What?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

We found out that the three boys, Eyal, Gilad and Naftali, were murdered shortly after their abduction. I’m sure we’ll hear the full story, in horrifying detail, at some point.

I can’t imagine how the families must feel. Or rather, I can imagine it but I am certain that their actual experience must be far worse than what I can imagine.

There have been so many terrorist murders, so many murders of children. The Ma’alot massacre, The bus of blood, the Haran family, the Sbarro bombing, the Dolphinarium, the Fogel family. The Palestinians and their supporters tell you it is “resistance to occupation” but in fact it is pure evil, hate made substance. Hate made flesh.

The Left says that it is our fault that they are doing these things because we are not giving them what they want. But what if what they want is to kill us?

Societies protect themselves against murderous criminals by killing or imprisoning them in order to separate them from normal society.

“If a man comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” Good advice, but how do we follow it when a whole culture has been created out of the idea that they should kill us?

The Palestinian people have demonstrated by the whole-hearted support shown for the kidnappers, the murderers, that they are satisfied with the path they have taken, the path of hate.

The problem is not a few extremists or criminals or terrorists who need to be killed or captured. The problem is a culture whose essence is to negate ours. These acts will not stop until the culture changes or dies out, or we completely separate ourselves from it. I don’t think our society can tolerate living as a target of terrorism forever.

First we have to decide that yes, we want our society, the Jewish people, to survive, and to continue to do so in its historic homeland. It’s not such a forgone conclusion — many, especially the intellectual elite among us are not so sure. But let’s suppose that we do. Since the nature of the Palestinian Arab culture is not under our control, since we can’t educate them or change them, our survival depends on separation and deterrence.

Then we need to look at geography and military realities. What territories do we need to control as a necessary condition for our survival? Authorities agree that the Jordan Valley and the high ground of Judea and Samaria must remain under our control. This isn’t a political issue, and we don’t need to bring in the spiritual dimension to decide this. It is simply a fact that follows from the topography of the region.

But some of the area that is essential is heavily populated by Arabs, many of whom belong to terror organizations and most of whom wouldn’t accept Jewish sovereignty.

Caroline Glick is probably correct that annexation of all of Judea and Samaria wouldn’t create an Arab majority. She estimates that the Arab population of Israel would go from about 20% to about 30%. She believes that the same relationship that has been established with the Israeli Arabs could be extended to the Arabs of the territories.

The lesson I have drawn from these murders is that she is not correct. It won’t work. This marriage cannot be saved. The educational enterprise of Yasser Arafat and his followers, aided by the West, has succeeded — perhaps beyond expectations. There is no going back. The Palestinian Arabs will not, cannot, coexist with the Jewish people.
