Bennett on BBC: Jews Lived in Israel before Brits Lived in Britannia


bennett on BBC

I think it was Benjamin D’Israeli who replied to a taunt by Irish political leader Daniel O’Connell: “Yes, I am a Jew, and when the ancestors of the right honorable gentleman were brutal savages in an unknown island, mine were priests in the temple of Solomon.”

So, Jews have been picking on the British for ages…

I don’t like the BBC and I don’t like BBC News shows in particular. I prefer our own NPR, where the style is loose and no one is trying to build up a story. They may lie like any other media outlet, but they don’t fake. So, watch Naftali doing war with Stephen Sackur from HARDtalk. The question that troubles Sackur is totally made up and intended to create the impression that there’s a tear in Israel’s right, with one side eager to give back ancestral land and the other, the fanatical, extreme-right wing, neo-terrorists, who object.

Have fun.

    Poor Arabs, oh my. Yet the British journalist fails to see Britian's problem with the Muslims. Your own soldier was beheaded on a London street and you worry about Israel. You have so many Muslim wannabe terrrorists that MI5 does NOT have enough people to watch them all.
    Britian needs a 2 state solution. Divide Britian one for Christians and one for Muslims. Let's see how that works out.

    True! the residents of the majority of countries were shlepping their knuckles in the dust while Jews were receiving the Ten Commandments!

  3. British colonial secretary,Churchill.refused to give all the land that belonged to Israel for fear of Zionist Movement…..they closed their eyes when the Nazis were killing the Jews by the millions…Britain lost all their colonies…I am not surprised that the English journalist thinks like Churchill….You Jews pick a man with Joshua's, King David's, and all the other great Jewish leaders' courage of heart and fight these aliens from Arabia who have been allowed to pollute the LAND OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL by the British….if you don't HE is waiting to do it HIMSELF…kich Kerry and Obama and all opf their gang out and shame them …do not fear allthose threats they are throwing at you…DO NOT FEAR…I am very proud of you Mr Bennet

  4. The Englishman was very rude and uninformed about Israel. This British are really arrogant and anti-Semitic.
    Naftali for next Prime Minister of Israel, go Naftali Go!

  5. Israel has to send back to the Palestinians from East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza to the original homes where they came, like we jews did, also Netanyahu has to go out, his is to weak and this job as PM is to big for him, Bennett could be the right person to manage this job as PM of Israel.

The P5 +1 are convinced that Iran is a legitimate negotiating partner. But Dan Diker, host of VOI’s National Security, has the opposite idea. Dan joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the folly of the nuclear talks. Then, Ali Jabber is a pseudonym for an Arab who sees Israel as the harbinger of peace, democracy and human rights. He joins Yishai to discuss why so many other Arabs are still mired in the jihadist mindset. Finally, Yishai talks about Israeli diplomat Yehuda Avner, who died recently. Avner worked as an adviser to prime ministers Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres, and wrote speeches for prime ministers Golda Meir and Levi Eshkol.

The Passover massacre was a suicide bombing carried out by a Hamas terrorist at the Park Hotel in Netanya, on March 27, 2002. Thirty civilians, in the midst of a seder, were killed in the attack and 140 others were wounded. David Bedein, director of the Israel Resource News Agency, joins Yishai to reminisce about that awful night; the connected story of the Saudi Peace Initiative; the fraudulent “massacre” in Jenin; the documents that came out of PLO chief Yasser Arafat’s computer; and the link to today’s American empowerment of Iran.

Then, Mati Wagner, Editorial Page Editor of The Jerusalem Post, and Dr. Seth Frandzman, Op-ed Editor of The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio to talk about the new power vacuum, and anarchy, that is forming in the Middle East due to the retreat of America. Finally, Mati and Seth debate the issue of whether the Arab “nakba” narrative — according to which the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 was a catastrophe — should be taught in Israeli schools.

A little bit of humor on a serious Pesach subject.

Political Strategist Elie Pieprz and Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to “talk Pesach” and and share their tips for the dreaded Passover preparations(i.e. clean early, clean often.) The issue of food, of course, comes up: What tastes better — Pesach lazagna or matza Pizza? Why do Sephardi Jews eat things during the holiday that Ashkenazi Jews do not? And what the heck is “gebrachats”? Then, Ayala Shapiro, aged 11, was critically wounded by a Molotov cocktail hurled by a terrorist. Ayala, who suffered third-degree burns over 40% of her body, is facing a long, complicated and painful road to recovery, after days of hovering between life and death. But you can help. Tune in to hear how. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to get ready for the BIG Shabbat — “Shabbat HaGadaol” — before Passover. Tune in to find out more!

Seth Frantzman and Mati Wagner, op-ed and editorial page editors (respectively) at The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio. Seth just returned to Israel from a food-filled and uber-capitalist trip to Dubai. Mati just came back from a fact-finding mission about slain Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Having both spent election night at the headquarters of the Joint Arab List in Nazareth, they discuss the accusations of bigotry against PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Then, the recent J Street conference featured remarks by White House Chief-of-Staff Denis McDonough, who said that Israel is engaged in a 50-year occupation which “must end.” The Jews in the audience clapped wildly and showed great excitement when the potential advent of a Palestinian state was discussed. Finally, Alan Elsner, Vice President for Communications at J Street, an organization that identifies itself as the “political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans,” joins Yishai from Washington to explain.

In the 1950s, the Israel Defense Forces engaged in retaliatory missions after terrorist attacks. Was this a legitimate expression of defense? Is the spirit of robust deterrence still alive in Israel? Yishai shares an incredible story with Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan about the three kidnapped youths who were massacred last summer, and how justice came to their killers. Jeremy also weighs in on potential foreign “punishment” of Israel and provides coalition updates.

Then, Pastor Dave McGarrah and Charlie Schiffman, co-hosts of the popular radio show, “The Teacher and the Preacher,” join Yishai in-studio. In Israel on tour with his flock, Pastor Dave, a Christian, and Charlie, a Jew, prove that Christian-Jewish relations can reach a new level. Listen in!
