The Temple Mount riot, a possible Pollard release, the Iran deal and immigration to Israel are today’s topics.
Police Spokesman Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld gives an update on police efforts to quell a Temple Mount riot Sunday morning, coinciding with the commemoration of Tisha B’av.
A look at latest reports claiming convicted spy Jonathan Pollard could be released from prison in the United States. Chair of the Knesset Caucus to Free Pollard MK Nachman Shai (Zionist Union) tell’s VOI’s Raoul Wootliff it would be “unwise” of the US to link the release to an Israeli acceptance of the nuclear deal with Iran.
Newsroom VOI reviews the aftermath of the Iran deal, as the US Congress conducts hearings on the issue, and efforts to lobby against it are underway. Journalist Jacob Kornbluh joins the show on the line from the US after covering the protest held in Times Square in NYC against the deal.
Then, VOI’s Ernie Singer looks at rising immigration to Israel from France, ahead of a mass “aliyah flight” this week, and Raoul speaks with Immigrant Absorption Committee Chair MK Avraham Nagosa (Likud) about the challenges organizations encouraging immigration face where funding is concerned. listen now
