    Our relatively open borders Immigration policy is short-term oriented and very selfish…
    I have been studying population and environmental issues for over 25 years and have come to believe that for the US, for other countries, and for the world – the most humane and environmental tact is to HELP PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE – not to encourage them to migrate.

    Migration to the US increases our own very unsustainable and growing population level with its devastating local and global environmental impacts, relieves us from training and hiring our own many low wage workers, takes pressure off of source countries to deal with their own population growth and related economic problems, and draws away from those countries the very people who are most likely to be leaders in their native lands to help improve conditions. Some countries have asked us, in fact, to better enforce our laws to help them better their own conditions. We must set an example and stop being selfish.
    Population is the great multiplier!

    Don’t be a deep feeler and a poor thinker. – George C. Marshall, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 1953.

    Excellent presentation! High immigration is a tool to enrich the already well off, and swell the government plantation, at the expense of the public. Furthermore, illegal immigration undermines the rule of law.

  3. Tim Aaronson says:

    I applaud the Jewish Press for presenting the work of Roy Beck.

    For too long American Jews have held only one view on the subject of immigration, that informed by the plight of passengers of the St Louis in the 1930s and the romanticized poetry of Emma Lazarus. Times have changed and it is time to change the paradigm. Moslem immigration means the death of support for Israel; masses of poorly educated from Latin America mean the death of the middle class of America; and the sheer numbers mean the death of the environment and any hope for a sustainable future for our children.

  4. Andrea Gardner says:

    Kudos to the Jewish Press for publishing this. We here in the US don't have the courage to do so. Neither does most of the world.

Randol Schoenberg, renowned attorney and president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, discusses explosive issues with Yishai.

Schoenberg, the prestigious Jewish lawyer recently portrayed in the popular movie, “Woman in Gold,” and Yishai discuss the US Supreme Court’s refusal to allow Jerusalem to be identified as part of Israel on official documents, and its recent decision to recognize same-sex marriage. Then, they debate the Iran deal, coming to very different conclusions. Schoenfeld shares his thoughts on recent developments emerging from the Obama administration.


Baruch Widen, interfaith dialoguer and Arabist, joins Yishai to discuss the pro-Israel trend taking hold among the capital’s Arab population.

The community is applying for Israeli citizenship in unprecedented numbers. Baruch and Yishai consider why.

Rabbi Mottle Wolfe joins Yishai to discuss the contours of the religious-secular divide in the Jewish state.

The two show hosts talk about the phenomenon of the very secular Tel Aviv being a mere five kilometers away from the ultra-Orthodox Bnei Brak. The former celebrates Israel Independence Day, but doesn’t fast on the day that marks the loss of Jewish sovereignty 2,000 years ago. The latter observes the religious fast, but does not take part in the modern celebrations of statehood. They envision a way to move the process of building the third Jewish commonwealth forward.

This is a walk-through the main sanctuary of the Holy Temple…

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to deconstruct the unique structure of the fifth book of the Torah, Devarim, or Deuteronomy.

Jews around the world are about to begin the weekly reading of the Book of Deuteronomy, a volume which acts as a transcription of Moses’s last speech to the people of Israel. Rabbi Feuer helps explain the volume’s special philosophy.

Conservative minister of the Canadian Parliament Peter Kent tells Yishai why his country will not agree to lift Iranian sanctions.

Kent, chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defense, explains that, unlike the United States, Canada demands to see true reform within the Islamic Republic before making concessions. This unwavering position places Canada as a leader against turning a blind eye to terrorism.

Rouhani describes how they wore down the US negotiators and got everything Iran wanted, while stating that Iran was never trying to build nuclear weapons. Thanks to MEMRI-TV for the translation.

Regavim has some good stuff about illegal Arab (and EU) construction in Judea and Samaria. They just don’t seem to grasp that they need to publish it all in English first, and not as an afterthought. If you don’t see the English subtitles automatically, you can activate them in the video’s closed caption settings.

Rabbi Natan Slifkin, also known as the ‘Zoo Rabbi,’ explains the Torah’s view on dinosaurs to Yishai.

Rabbi Slifkin, director of the Biblical Museum of Natural History and author of the Torah Enclyopedia of the Animal Kingdom, has a wild discussion with Yishai about exotic biblical animals.

Nationally syndicated US radio show host Ethan Bearman describes for Yishai the average American’s perspective on the Iran deal.

According to Bearman, author of “Liars & Whores: How Big Government and Big Businesses Are Working to Save Their Assets, Not Yours,” many Americans take umbrage with their administration’s marked step away from Israel.
