Yishai is joined in-studio by Swedish-Jewish journalist and political consultant Annika Hernroth-Rothstein to talk about what it is like to be so persecuted as a Jew where you live that you apply for asylum in your own country. Annika, a regular contributor to the Jerusalem Post, Israel Hayom, Commentary and Mosaic Magazine, tells Yishai that in spite of having experienced anti-Semitism on many occasions, she found herself far more frightened during a visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Israel Independence Day.
Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by David P. Goldman, an American economist, music critic and author, known for his series of online essays in the Asia Times under the pseudonym Spengler, and for his 2011 book “How Civilizations Die.” Goldman discusses what he calls the miracle of Israel’s high birth rate, as compared with those countries, like Iran, whose demographics are falling off a cliff. He also explains why China and the Chinese people are fascinated by Israel.
