Palestinian sentiment, extremism and Iran are the topics of today’s show.
Despite Palestinian calls for revenge against Israel following the firebombing of a Palestinian family home last week, Arab affairs expert Bassem Eid tells VOI’s Mordechai Twersky, filling in for Raoul Wootliff, that the Palestinian people have “no energy for a third Intifada.”
Then, International Institute for Counter-Terrorism Fellow Ely Karmon tells Mordechai that the phenomenon of “lone-wolf” attacks carried out by Palestinians is nothing new.
Then, on a day that Israel’s Shin Bet internal security agency announced the arrest of a Hezbollah operative, renowned Yediot Aharonot military affairs correspondent Dr. Ronen Bergman tells Mordechai that the surveillance capabilities of the terror organizations can not be underestimated. “The rhetoric represents the Israeli mindset,” says Bergman, who also discusses his interview in today’s edition of Spiegel online with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon about the Iranian nuclear threat, which he says is “seen as an existential one.” listen now
