Life Lessons with Judy Simon
Yisrael Medad is a revenant resident of Shiloh, in the Hills of Efrayim north of Jerusalem. He arrived in Israel with his wife, Batya, in 1970 and lived in the renewing Jewish Quarter, eventually moving to Shiloh in 1981.
Currently the Menachem Begin Center's Information Resource Director, he has previously been director of Israel's Media Watch, a Knesset aide to three Members of Knesset and a lecturer in Zionist History. He assists the Yesha Council in it's contacts with the Foreign Media in a volunteer capacity, is active on behalf of Jewish rights on the Temple Mount and is involved in various Jewish and Zionist activist causes. He contributes a Hebrew-language media column to Besheva and publishes op-eds in the Jerusalem Post and other periodicals.

One of the keys to a successful information policy is to be able to truly explain the circumstances of why a certain policy is adopted. And in our case, if those Republican delegates and others would think what it is to have rocks and molotov cocktails thrown at your cars and buses constantly, regularly or even intermittently, to be targets of terrifying violent acts, - then they will understand and commend the need to take measures of self-defense, whether by the security forces or the revenant Jewish population.
