  1. I don’t care what your political affiliation is. But if you love G-d, you love and support Israel. If you don’t, I think that speaks volumes about you and your relationship with G-D.

  2. God bless this atheist, Pat Condell

  3. Everything that is happening now is the effect of Arab hatred towards Jews. Everything.

    A refreshing bit of honesty–from a Christian. Hard to argue with the truth and logic of what he's saying, no matter how many ridiculous accusations the haters hurl at courageous little Israel.

  5. Paul Berman says:

    This is absolutely perfect from a non-Jew.

  6. Ray Glazer says:

    How very true an honest and logical speech. It is a shame that the rest of the world will not hear it or agree.

  7. Thank you, Pat Condell for speaking out and stating the truth about the real and true nature of the ongoing Muslim Arab – Jewish Israeli Middle East conflict. I admire and respect Pat Condell for his honesty,

  8. Yes there used to be more than 1 million jews living in arab countries until the arab countries kicked them out. Now there are a total of 2,000 left in those countries.They left with the clothes on their backs and Israel took them in. Lets be fair shall we…… let them back into the countries you kicked them out of, including ALL of their descendants ( totals about 5 million now) and we will do the same with the Palestinians. NO?Dont want to? Sorry but you cant have it both ways. And dont give me that rubbish that it is only since 1948 that arabs have had a problem with jews. Some of my ancestors never left Israel and were farmers there, with arab neighbours in the 1800's. Their arab neighbours shot at them, burnt their houses and crops to the ground and eventually burned the entire village to the ground. I asked my grandfather when he was alive whether they fought back and he replied, "we were pacifists and they took advantage knowing full well we would not".
    So the problem you have with jews now is that for the first time in more than 3000 years the jews will fight.No more whipping boy for you and your kind.

    Pat Condell is NOT a Christian, he is a self-avowed ATHEIST.

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!

Nothing like watching reruns of the classics on a lazy Sunday. Somehow, they always seem so timely.

Yishai rants about Ahmed Tibi, leader of the Arab Movement for Change, an Israeli political party, who said, “We thought the Israeli public wanted change, but instead acted in a tribal way, and therefore we are left with Netanyahu.” Then, Zeev Ben-Shachar, director of Israel Education at Jerusalem U., joins Yishai in-studio to deconstruct the techniques of the Israel-haters and to lay out a strategy for fighting anti-Israel bias on campuses. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer and Yishai take the studio outside on a beautiful Jerusalem day to talk about the challenging issues of faith when things don’t go our way and the resulting anger. They also provide an “intro” to the Book of Leviticus and discuss the challenging issue of animal sacrifice.

Yishai is joined first by Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan and then by VOI Bureau Chief Daniel Seaman to discuss how PM Benjamin Netanyahu beat the New York Times, the V-15 campaign, US President Barack Obama — and how the strategies of his enemies backfired. Then, David P. Goldman (known as “Spengler” in his erudite columns), is Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum and author of “How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying, Too”. He joins Yishai to discuss the hegemonic appetite of Iran, America’s explicit acceptance of it, and the mandate that PM Netanyahu has received from Israel’s voters to fight it.

Finally, Alex Traiman joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the upcoming coalition and the spiritual significance of the Likud victory, using the Purim miracle as a parable.

Yishai is joined by his wife, Malkah, to recap the Fleisher family’s voting adventures and marvel at Israel’s youth, who are deeply involved in the political process. Then, Haaretz blogger and TLV1 broadcaster Allison Kaplan Sommer joins Yishai to discuss the voting patterns of Israel’s Coastal Plain, traditionally a more liberal bloc.

Finally, a must-hear interview with Aida Touma-Sliman, the former head of the International Department of the Communist Party of Israel. Recently resigned from her post as editor-in-chief of Al-Ittihad (an Israeli daily Arabic newspaper) to run in the fifth — and realistic — slot of the Joint Arab List, she bares some tough issues that divide Muslim-Arabs and Jews in Israel.

How many people came to the nationalist rally? Why was Jerusalem such a central issue? Why did the prime minister himself take the time to show up? Yishai is joined in-studio by VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff to reflect on the right-wing demonstration in Tel Aviv on Sunday night.

Also, why has kissing the Mezuzah become a political issue? Listen to Yishai rant against those in the post-Zionist camp who make fun of traditional Israelis, portraying them as boorish and backward.
Then, hear the voices of the people of Israel — some pro, some con — who came out to demonstrate on Sunday night. Yishai was on the scene to provide a feel for the real mood in Israel.

We’re not endorsing Netanyahu. A vote for Bennett is definitely just as good. But when we saw this Chuck Norris video, we knew had to put it up (or else).
