One Jew Walking through Paris; Another Jew Standing in Congress

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Makor Rishon/NRG journalist Zvika Klein joins Yishai in-studio to talk about his shocking new video — “Ten Hours Walking as a Jew in Paris.” The video shows him in a skullcap and other Jewish garb strolling through the French capital and getting verbally and physically accosted. Klein discusses creating the video and what it teaches about the state of Jews in Europe.

Then, Joel Pollak, the editor-in-chief of Breitbart.com, tells Yishai that “the fact that there is a rift between Obama and Israel does not mean there is rift between America and Israel.” He adds that the American people have rejected President Obama’s foreign policy and want to hear PM Benjamin Netanyahu address the US Congress.

Finally, Yishai defends PM Netanyahu’s right to speak before Congress, and compares the Israeli leader to Queen Esther — using the Bible story as an example of the Jews acting to defend themselves. But he also demands real action from Netanyahu.

The Murder of Rafik Hariri and the Victory of Adar

Friday, February 20th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Dr. Ronen Bergman, senior military and intelligence affairs analyst for Yedioth Ahronoth, contributing writer for the New York Times and author of five best-selling books — including “The Secret War with Iran” — joins Yishai to discuss a fascinating tale. Ten years ago, a massive blast killed Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri and 21 others around his motorcade. A taped confession of the suicide bomber was found. Yet DNA evidence at the scene did not match that taken from the toothbrush of the alleged perpetrator. It took the enterprising work of a young Lebanese police officer (who was later murdered) and an international team of investigators to break the case and tie it to Hezbollah and Syrian President Bashar Assad. Yet the trial, which has cost half a billion dollars, has no defendants — because no one in Lebanon is willing to take on the Shiite militia.

Then, on Spiritual Cafe: The point exactly between the two cherubs on top of the Ark of the Covenant is an empty space from which the voice of the Lord was heard. Can one find that point and hear Him through prayer and meditation? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to discuss the Biblical blueprint of Tabernacle vestments, the month of Adar, which we just entered — that which symbolizes Jewish victory — and finding God, even when you’re down.

Obama’s Secret Iran Strategy, and Israeli Rabbinate Reform

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Dr. Michael Doran is an American expert on the international politics of the Middle East, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon. His recent article in Mosaic Magazine, “Obama’s Secret Iran Strategy,” has caused a firestorm in the policy world. He joins Yishai from Washington to discuss the US president’s attempt at detente with the Iranian regime, and the brouhaha surrounding PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech before Congress.

Then, Nachman Rosenberg, the former executive vice president of Tzohar, an organization calling for reform in the Israeli rabbinate, joins Yishai in-studio. He says that Israel’s religious establishment may actually be destroying the Jewish character of the state, claiming that it has developed into a dysfunctional government monopoly that poses no less of a strategic threat than Iran.

Refugees in Jordan, Houthis in Yemen and Herring in New York

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Voice of Israel’s Bassem Eid joins Yishai in-studio to discuss Jordan’s challenges — two million refugees and serious problems with ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood — and the goings-on in Yemen. Who are the Houthis? What are they doing in Yemen? And are they an Iranian proxy?

Then, Mark Russ Federman, the author of “Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House that Herring Built,” joins Yishai in-studio to tell the story of how one Manhattan store lasted for an entire century in the same location, created a craving for traditional schmaltz herring — and then merged it with Swedish tastes to create a sensation.

The Emasculated Israeli Male and the Prohibitions of Witchcraft and Bestiality

Friday, February 13th, 2015

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

Yishai asks what has happened to masculinity in Israel, and why ‘maleness’ is in retreat. Journalist and author Orit Arfa, who recently penned a piece about the phenomenon of women opting to freeze their eggs, joins Yishai in-studio to discuss this societal crisis.

Then, why does the Bible link the prohibitions of witchcraft and bestiality? And how does the Bible’s lack of liberalism jibe with modernity? Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the Biblical view of societal norms and responsibilities — and the Jewish People’s obligation to rid the world of evil.
