MK Zoabi: Kidnappers Not Terrorists

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

 MK Hanin Zoabi told Radio Tel Aviv this morning that the kidnappers of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel should not be considered terrorists.

“Terrorists? No. Even if I don’t agree with their actions, I don’t think the kidnappers should be considered terrorists,” Zoabi said during an interview with Sharon Gal on the stations morning drive radio program. “I’m not surprised at all [about the kidnapping]. People are living under occupation. Their lives are not normal.”

Zoabi also called  her teenage cousin, 17-year-old Mohammed Zoabi  a “poor fool” and indicated that he is a stooge for the Israeli government because he appreciates his rights as a citizen in a democratic country. “He’s a a confused, uninformed kid who always feels the need to apologies to his strong [Israeli] masters,” the Knesset members said.

The younger Zoabi’s YouTube video statement of support for the hostages has garnered thousands of views, as well as threats from his family.

In response to the interview, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman attacked MK Zoabi, saying the Israeli citizen who openly supports Hamas and Hezbollah should face the same punishment as the individuals responsible for abducting the yeshiva students.

According to a report on the 0404 website, Liberman called Zoabi a “terrorist’ and added that, having encouraged and supported terrorism, her punishment should be the same.

Several weeks ago, the website reported that Zoabi called a group of Jewish Israeli teenagers “murderers” and said that killing soldiers in order to obtain a higher goal is the right thing to do.

Jewish Press Radio: Hareidim, Jewish Blues, and Alternative Peace

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Straight from the heart of Jerusalem comes the only English talk show on broadcast radio in the State of Israel. Yishai and Malkah Fleisher, two well-known internet radio personalities, made the leap to broadcast FM 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 The Yishai Fleisher Show online for listening and for download in cooperation with Galey Yisrael radio.

Below are the links to this week’s show available for download or podcast:

Segment #1: Hareidi Harassment – Fringe Trouble or Deep Divide?

Yishai and Malkah discuss the conflicts in Jerusalem between Haredim and other groups over space, how little kids should dress, and where women should sit in the bus. Are these conflicts an indication of a deep divide or the highly visible agitations of a small number of people? What is the media’s interest in reporting on these stories and is the media helping promote harmony among the Jewish people?

Segment #2 : Jewish Blues on Mt. Zion & IDF Appreciation

Yishai visits Assaf’s Cave in Jerusalem and speaks with Levy Dovid co-founder (along with Yaakov Lippon) of this new Wednesday night institution of joy and music. Yishai then speaks to world famous Jewish blues guitarist Lazer Lloyd known for his solo work and his work with the band Yood. In the second half of the segment Yishai interviews Aba Claman, founder and director of “Thank Israeli Soldiers”.

Segment #3 : Alternative Peace Conference – The Presentations

Yishai and Baruch Widen go to an alternative peace conference held by the group thebestplans.org. In this first segment on the conference you will hear some interviews on the side with participants and some excerpts from presentations given at the conference. The conference was held on 26th December at the Ariel University Center. Six authors presented their plans for the future of Israel-Palestine. The audience actively participated in rating each plan.

Segment #4: Yishai Speaks at Art School

Yishai talks with art students at Emunah v’ Omanut Seminary. How can art/seminary students better Israel and change the world? What is the role of art in inspiring consciousness of the future Jewish reality? Yishai discusses these issues in the context of his own usage of art to promote Israel.
