Hindsight and Aforethought(50:39)
Host Glen Ladau moderates a conversation juxtaposing the Israeli Supreme Court decision that the Beit El community north of Jerusalem is an illegal settlement with the Gush Katif evacuation. The panel talks about this development with a sense of deja vu, as they remember the events of the 2005 Gaza withdrawal.
Then, the panel debates the validity and accuracy of US presidential candidate and former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee’s recent comment that, with the Iran deal, Obama is leading Jews to “the doors of the oven.” Is this remark unnervingly accurate, or inappropriately crass?
Next, the panel comments on the announcement that Israel will be leaving seven foreign embassies with no ambassador, including those in the UK and the UN. The discussion surrounds the dangers and risks of the government failing to emphasize foreign policy.
Finally, the members of the panel share their remarks on Knesset Deputy Speaker Hilik Bar’s outline for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, particularly his clause that advisory status should be granted to Diaspora Jewry.
