Gil Hoffman takes listeners behind the scenes at the swearing-in ceremony of new Jerusalem mayor Moshe Lion and reflects on the challenges that lie ahead for the new mayor and the successes of his predecessor, Nir Barkat. He then speaks about the United Nations failing to condemn Hamas rocket fire on Israeli civilians in the Gaza periphery. Gil singles out and questions countries who abstained and voted against a resolution that they should have had a moral obligation to support. He ends with praise for Danny Danon, Israel’s ambassador to the UN for putting up with those countries.
