Netanyahu Matches Ben-Gurion’s Record for Consecutive Time in Office

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

On Sunday, November 20, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Likud) has concluded a consecutive seven years and 235 days in office, matching the record of Israel’s legendary first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion (Mapai-Labor).

This means that, barring a Knesset vote of no confidence on Sunday, as of Monday Netanyahu will become Israel’s longest serving PM in consecutive years.

However, when it comes to time in office, Ben-Gurion is still way ahead of his much younger successor. When combining his two terms, Ben-Gurion clocked 13 years and 127 days, compared with Netanyahu’s mere 10 years and 252 days.

Interestingly, Netanyahu’s most ardent foe these days, Ehud Barak, served the shortest term in office as Prime Minister: eight months and one day.

And to those of you, political sports fans, who are interested in these stats, here is the full list of also ran:

3. Yitzhak Shamir: 6 years and 242 days (first term: 339 days; second term: 5 years and 268 days)

4. Yitzhak Rabin: 6 years and 132 days (first term: 3 years and 18 days; second term: 3 years and 114 days)

5. Menachem Begin: 6 years and 113 days

6. Levi Eshkol: 5 years and 247 days

7. Ariel Sharon: 5 years and 39 days (Including a 100 days period of “temporary incapacitation” wherein the Prime minister’s authorities were delegated to the Designated Acting Prime Minister)

8. Golda Meir: 5 years and 19 days

9. Ehud Olmert: 2 years and 351 days (In addition, served as Acting Prime Minister, wherein the Prime Minister’s authorities were delegated to him) Shimon Peres: 2 years and 264 days (first term: 2 years and 37 days; second term: 227 days)

10. Moshe Sharett: 1 year and 281 days

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Israel News Talk Radio received an angry letter from a listener saying that they did not want to hear about Jews moving to Israel after reading an article about a family found living in a succa hut. But, does the article give the whole story? Shifra Hoffman of VictimsOfArabTerror.org and Shuva.net dishes it out as she rebuttals the letter and points out the faulty outlook regarding making Aliyah (moving to Israel).

Also, Uri Kelman, a new immigrant from Los Angeles to Ashkelon, talks about his new community, the beautiful parks, and his job search in his new home. Check out his Facebook page here.

Also, Tamar reads a DARING speech from the book, “The Prime Ministers,” by former PM Menachem Begin as he lambastes the United Nations for condemning Israel for calling Jerusalem its eternal capital.

Knesset Considers Bill to Require Zionism Course in Universities

Monday, August 1st, 2016

Israel is considering a bill to require Israeli universities to include a prerequisite course on Zionist concepts in their curricula.

The bill was submitted to the Knesset by Yisrael Beytenu Knesset Member Oded Forer.

The measure is intended to counter the anti-Israel trend that has been seen among many of the academics.

It is also hoped the course will help students become citizens who are more aware of their heritage.

The course is expected to include texts from founding fathers such as David Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzchak Rabin, and others.

The Tamar Yonah Show – Is the EU Breaking Up? [audio]

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

The whole world seems to be shifting and re-arranging itself, with the movement of immigrants into Europe, Britain threatening to bolt from the EU, and with the international community wanting to cut out even more of Israel’s land. What do we make of all of this?

Join guests Paul Miller, director of www.SalomonCenter.org, and Amotz Asa-El from www.MiddleIsrael.net and a Jerusalem Post senior editor as they come on the program and describe what is happening in this turmoil-filled world around us.

Also, Tamar reads some history on how Israel came in to save the day for the Christians in south Lebanon, when no one else would, and how we need to (sadly) remember who our enemies are if we wish to protect and defend our countries, populations and way of life. Read more about it in the book called BEGIN: His Life, Words and Deeds.

Rejuvenation: The Beginnings of Begin [audio]

Monday, June 20th, 2016

Yisrael Medad and 35 colleagues from Jerusalem’s Menachem Begin Heritage Center just spent a week literally walking thru the former Prime Minister’s early life in Poland to understand the man on an entirely new level. What’s shaped Begin’s ideology? How did he relate to David Ben Gurion, the dominant personality of the early years of pre-state and statehood? Was he a terrorist? Did he prevent a Jewish civil war? Eve Harow discusses with Yisrael the generation of (physically) small giants whose contributions from all sides of the political spectrum still resonate today.
