In the particularly entertaining third season premier of Tuesday Night Live in Jerusalem, Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel provide a refreshing and enlightening perspective on what many consider a depressing and hopeless situation in the Middle East.
Ari and Jeremy engage people across the spectrum of nations and religions to hear their opinions on the problems and the solutions in this emotionally polarizing crisis. From yeshivas in the hills of Judea to the largely secular academia of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, Ari and Jeremy delve to the depths of the crisis in the Middle East.

TNL Episode #2: Caroline Glick vs. ‘Biased’ Israeli Media
In this second episode of the Season Premier of “Tuesday Night Live in Jerusalem”, Ari and Jeremy welcome world famous journalist Caroline Glick.
“We wanted her to provide a breath of fresh air from the pollution that inundates media about Israel”, explains Ari. “Without employing the dogma and rhetoric which characterizes the disproportionately biased Israeli media, Caroline Glick has the unique ability to weave together world events to present an accurate and enlightening holistic understanding of Israel and the entire world with a very refreshing backdrop of Jewish pride, dignity and strength.”
Among many other prestigious accomplishments, Caroline Glick is the deputy managing editor of The Jerusalem Post, the chief diplomatic correspondent for the Hebrew-language Makor Rishon newspaper, a senior fellow for Middle East affairs at a Washington D.C.-based center for security policy, and the creator of the brilliant parody on Israeli politics, Latma.

Maj. Gen. Doron Almog speaks on “Tuesday Night Live in Jerusalem” about the battles he took part in as an IDF officer and the battle he led for the benefit of his own son and others. In the second part of the special edition of “TNL,” recorded on Israel’s national Memorial Day, Ari and Jeremy speak with Maj. Gen. Almog, famous for his involvement in the 1976 Operation Entebbe.
He was the first commander to land on the runway in Entebbe, marking it for the Israeli planes that followed. He then led the capture of the airfield’s control towers, enabling the Israeli forces to free the hostages held captive in Uganda. Almog was the last to leave Ugandan soil after the successful mission. Another highlight in his prestigious career was the 1984-85 Operation Moses, the clandestine airlift of 6,000 endangered Jews from Ethiopia to Israel.
In the above video, Almog also speaks with Ari and Jeremy about recently-killed IDF officer Eliraz Peretz, who once approached Almog because he was debating his future in the army after his brother was killed in service. According to IDF rules, bereaved family members can be released of any combat life-endangering service. Almog also is a bereaved brother and he strengthened Eliraz to do “what his heart told him to.”
Almog’s brother Eran was a tank commander killed on the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War. After the tragedy, Almog discovered that, because of the danger to the forces, Eran was abandoned, bleeding to death in the tank. It was that experience that strengthened Almog’s belief in the idea that “soldiers must never be abandoned on the field.”
Almog also speaks about his son Eran, who suffered from severe autism and developmental disability, and the Aleh Negev village he founded. Aleh Negev provides residential, medical and social services to the severely handicapped of southern Israel. After Eran’s death at the age of 23 in 2007, Aleh Negev was renamed in his memory, Aleh Negev Nachalat Eran.

As the world is more divided than ever before politically, nationally, racially, and religiously – it seems that the messianic vision of global unity is further away than its ever been. As Jeremy tours the US in a mobile home, Ari shares how this extreme duality can be harnessed to bring about the times we have all been waiting for.
