On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with Col. (res) Maurice Hirsch who is the head of legal strategies for the Palestinian Media Watch organization. In his latest column featured on the Mida news magazine website, Hirsch argues that instead of targeting empty buildings, Israel should be targeting the Hamas terrorists themselves. Hirsch is worried that Israel’s response to rocket attacks, which includes giving prior warnings before attacking strategic targets thus allowing the terrorists to flee, shows that unfortunately “Israel’s leaders, together with the IDF, have lost the desire to defend Israel’s sovereignty and defeat its enemies.” A sad state of affairs indeed.
In a precise, no-nonsense fashion, retired British Colonel Richard Kemp speaks with Eve about the “RE-creation” of the Jewish state in it’s Homeland.
Their discussion covers the Israel Defense Forces’ extreme morality, the tremendous benefits that Israeli military intelligence and civilian advances provide the world, Israel’s patchy relationship with his own country and his personal experience with Israelis. Colonel Kemp’s insights include how Judaism’s inherent decency and antipathy to violence is a larger influence on Israeli society than usually recognized, and he reiterates -from his vast experience in the region -that Israel is at the forefront of battling the Islamic threat to the entire West and Iran’s reshaping of the Middle East. A true friend of mankind, he shed no tears at yesterday’s death of the Hamas engineer of terrorism. His clarity and moral integrity are a breath of fresh air in a world that sometimes seems to have lost its way. For Eve, this interview was a very real honor. Listen and share.
