With Jews purchasing and entering 27 new apartments in the mostly-Arab neighborhood of Silwan, alternative peace activist Yehuda HaKohen joins Yishai Fleisher in-studio to discuss whether Jews are Judaizing Jerusalem. It’s all a matter of narratives.

Plus, the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha and Yom Kippur coincide this year. Prof. Rassem Khamaisi of Haifa University suggests and that could be a recipe for tension while Prof. Ze’ev Maghen, head of Middle East Studies at Bar Ilan thinks it’s an opportunity to bask in the Jewish-Muslim shared heritage. Can Hebron be the place where reconciliation starts? Can Jews learn to make grand pilgrimages to Jerusalem as Muslims make the Hajj to Mecca?

Now needing to protect the Jewish State’s new offshore gas reserves in the Mediterranean, Israel’s Navy has to be in top form. The Navy just became stronger with the arrival of a new German submarine called TANIN (sea monster). Retired Rear-Admiral Nir Maor, who served in the submarine corps, is now Director of the Israel’s Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum. He tells Yishai about the birth of Israel’s navy during the pre-state clandestine immigration efforts, recalls the memory of the Dakar sub which was lost in 1968 along with its 69 sailors, and details Israel’s increasing naval power today.

Plus, Yishai opines on how Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes great speeches, but always seems to blunder at the end. Then, VOI’s Arab Affairs Correspondent Bassem Eid suggests that the Arab street is attracted to ISIS because it is seen as a liberation movement from their own failed Arab leaders.

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.

(((CLICK BELOW TO HEAR AUDIO)))

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?
