The Torah portion of Chukat has a conglomeration of wild stories and commandments. Join Rabbi Yishai for the ride. Then, Malkah Fleisher on the US Embassy celebrating July 4th in Jerusalem and Yishai’s birthday.
On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, a slew of interviews with ‘who’s who,’ from communities in Judea and Samaria and other pro-Israel advocates, at a special Yesha Council event celebrating the US moving its embassy to Jerusalem. South Carolina State Senator Alan Clemmons, who has been the leading anti-BDS stalwart in America also expresses his joy over the move. Also on the show, an interview with Chele Farley who recently visited Israel and is running on the Republican ticket for US Senate in New York. Farley clearly demonstrates her pro-Israel credentials on her whirlwind visit in the Jewish State.
The Left is not treasonous and Zionism is part of my identity, Zionist Union MK Merav Michaeli says in an interview with Gil Hoffman. She blames the poor reputation of the Left on incitement by its political opponents. She says she is optimistic that the Left’s image can be repaired. She says the Left stands for promoting peace, equality and democracy and there is still hope if strengthening all three. She says she is happy that the US is moving its embassy to Jerusalem and hopes Donald Trump will reach the ultimate deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
Gil Hoffman speaks about the Natalie Portman scandal with Michael Medved, one of America’s most respected film critics and arguably the most successful Jewish radio talk show host in the history of mankind. Gil asks Medved about why it matters so much that a Hollywood star refused to come to Israel and rejected a $2 million prize. He also speaks to Medved about the significance of next month’s inauguration of the American embassy in Jerusalem.
Gil Hoffman does his show live from the site of the US Consulate that will become the American embassy in Jerusalem in May. He talks about the significance of the move taking place on the 70th birthday of Israel and interviews Jerusalem city councilwoman Fleur Hassan-Nahoum on site. Hassan-Nahoum credits Evangelical Christians for persuading US president Donald Trump to make the move, while Hoffman says believing Jews who influence Trump deserve credit as well. The head of the council’s Yerushalmim Party, Hassan-Nahoum says the site of the embassy in a Jewish neighborhood and near Arab neighborhoods could make it a place where Jews and Arabs come together. Between 1948 and 1967, the area was no-man’s land, between Israel and Jordan. Hassan-Nahoum declares triumphantly that it is now Israel’s land and recognized by America.
