Bad Deals and Good Medicine(50:48)
First, Yishai is joined by Jerusalem Post op-ed editor Seth Frantzman, who argues that the 2005 withdrawal from Gush Katif was the best of the bad options available at the time. He and Yishai discuss the 10th anniversary of the settlement expulsion and the upcoming 9th of Av fast day.
Then, Yishai learns of the tragedy that spurred the creation of TEREM, Israel’s emergency clinic chain. Dr. Zlotnik, the organization’s medical director, is an immigrant from Canada who now focuses on healing Israelis, particularly those on the periphery, and on reforming the country’s health-care system.
Next, Yishai hears from Peter Kent, a conservative member of the Canadian Parliament, and the chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defense. Kent explains Canada’s position on the Iran deal. Unlike the United States, Canada refuses to lift sanctions on the Islamic Republic without real reform within that nation’s regime.
Finally, Yishai interviews Ethan Bearman, nationally syndicated American radio show host and the author of “Liars & Whores: How Big Government and Big Businesses Are Working to Save Their Assets, Not Yours.” Bearman describes the feeling on America’s streets in light of the US administration’s marked move away from Israel.
