When Irish Eyes Are Smiling on Israel17 June 2023
Is BDS taking hold everywhere? Not if Barry Williams can help it. Williams, founder of the social media group Irish4Israel, joins VOI's Josh Hasten to talk about his efforts. He says that while it is true that many in Ireland support the BDS movement, those educated about the realities of the situation understand that Israel is the one true democracy in the Middle East. His group is calling on the Irish government to demand that Hamas disarm.
Then, Josh is joined by Mike Gondelman, founder and director of the Jerusalem Sober House -- a residential facility providing cutting-edge therapy and treatment for addicts -- and program director Yehuda Honickman, to discuss a new campaign to raise funds for an out-patient clinic for young addicts.
