Gil Hoffman interviews Stav Shaffir, who is second on the left-wing Democratic Union list and Yair Lapid, who is second on the centrist Blue and White list. They both tell him why it is important that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lose the September 17 election. They both warn that if Netanyahu will be re-eelected, Israeli democracy will be in danger. Gil asks Shaffir if she regrets leaving Labor now that her current party is only getting six seats in the polls, and he speculates with Lapid about what would happen if neither Netanyahu’s Likud, nor Lapid’s Blue and White can form a government.

The 1950’s were a formative time in Israeli history. The Cold War was getting hot, internal politics were volatile, and the it seemed as if the War of Independence had not quite ended. To Israel’s leaders, there was nothing more important than maintaining a string posture, even though this may have meant that they were marching steadily toward another war.

On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh shares some interviews from Sunday’s Israel Victory Project conference held in Ramat Gan including comments from Naftali Bennett.

The conference brought together politicians, academics, journalists, military experts and others to discuss their views on how Israel should go about achieving a victory over her enemies, from Hamas in the south to Hezbollah in the north, and all others who seek Israel’s demise and refuse to accept the existence of a Jewish State.

Mayor Gabe Groisman captains a town of just a few thousand folk, but he’s making waves from coast to coast and even internationally. Eve sailed into the Miami area in lieu of Hurricane Dorian for a beautiful Shabbat as scholar in residence and landed a terrific interview with a man who’s determined to sink injustice. From anti-BDS legislation to codifying anti-Semitic hate crimes, he floats his ideas and then anchors them in law, inspiring other mayors to follow in his wake and push back the tidal wave of vilification of Israel and Jews. He schools Eve on the upstream battles and work with global peers to end the hate and help those adrift on the sea of inaction.

Celebrating 1 year at the Arugot Farm, join Jeremy & Tehila on their harrowing journey to the Judean Mountains to settle these strategically critical & historic mountains.

Tune into their story and hear how they faired raising six children alone on a farm under construction in the most contested real estate in the world bringing life back to the mountains of Judea.

With a year behind them, what’s next?

How does Jewish governance look like? Is there a separation of Temple and State? Rav Mike Feuer returns to join Rabbi Yishai for some in-the-garden Jerusalem Torah. Then, Malkah Fleisher tells Yishai about Amazing Savings and Yishai tells her about PM Netanyahu’s visit to Hebron!

Gil Hoffman explains why there have been not two but seven elections so far over the past year, and why there might end up being as many as 12 before a new government is finally formed. Gil then goes into the impact of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waging a political battle against the media. He concludes with a message to Zehut Party voters following their leader Moshe Feiglin’s deal with Netanyahu in which Zehut quit the race.

This past weekend 21 teams from all over Europe arrived in Jerusalem to compete for the 2019 Flag Football European Championship. Denmark took the gold for the men while Spain won the women’s crown. On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, American Football in Israel (AFI) president Steve Leibowitz says that the biggest winner in the competition is the city of Jerusalem, hosting the largest ever delegation (over 400 players) for a specific sport in an internationally recognized tournament. While the Israeli men’s team finished fourth and the women finished sixth, Israel already has its sights on the 2020 world championship in Copenhagen.

Outer space. Airspace. Open space.  Various battles are happening now on different levels and many spheres, in and out of sight. The war for the public areas of Yehuda and Shomron in particular and Israel in general continues- and Eve saw springs, national parks and hiking paths full of families during the last week of summer. The Good Guys rocked it.

The focus of our story has returned to the land of Israel, where it is once again a time of controversy. Despite the population growth, the economic hardships and the security challenges, the most divisive political issue of the early 1950’s was whether to accept reparations from the reborn German state. Here is an exploration of whether pragmatic survival or idealism should be the guiding lights of the first Jewish government in two thousand years.
