Isi Leibler’s newest New York Times article managed to anger both left and right. On the one hand, he says that the two-state solution is not currently feasible, but at the same time he believes that as an eventual goal it must not be abandoned. So which one is it? Leibler served as president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and Chairman of the Governing Board of the World Jewish Congress. He was one of the pioneering global leaders in the campaign on behalf of Soviet Jewry and played a role in the lead up to Israeli diplomatic relations between India and China. He spoke with Yishai about his Times article and told the story of his efforts on behalf of the Jews trapped behind the walls of the Soviet Union.

Meir Eisenman, Land of Israel guide and Bible teacher, joins Yishai to report on a very special tour of eastern Jerusalem by Knesset members of the Internal Affairs Committee headed up by MK Miri Regev. After discussing a skewed report written by the Alternative Information Center, which accused Jews of attempting to create a spatial division on the Mount “which could drag the entire region into a sectarian and religious war”, Meir described what really went on during the Committee tour and how Jewish residents of eastern Jerusalem are complaining a mini-Intifada terror happening every day. What did MK Moshe Feiglin and MK Gafni discuss while looking over the Temple Mount? Will the Jews of Kidmat Tzion be able to withstand the daily rock attacks that they face? If Jerusalem is the heart, are we in the midst of a heart attack?
