      Yossi Klein Halevi and Dan Diker on this week's momentous events

      Hour 1

      A behind the scenes look at last week's New York's 9th District race
      between Turner and Weiprin.  Political strategist Ruth Jaffe Leiberman
      worked the campaign for the Republicans and gives us a glimpse of the
      political machines and machinations.  Do American Jews living in
      Israel have the right and even obligation to participate in US
      elections?  Why was this seat deemed so important on both sides of the

      The right of the Jews to a state of their own shouldn't be a topic for
      discussion 64 years after the UN vote, but it is, and is even the
      subject of a book just released jointly by the Jerusalem Center for
      Public Affairs and World Jewish Congress.  Eve was at the conference
      this week and relates some of the highlights.

      Hour 2

      Yossi Klein Halevi could be called a member of Israel's 'compassionate
      center".  A dove at heart but a hawk by necessity, the brilliant
      author and journalist offers his thoughts on the UN vote, the
      Netanyahu government, and the wrenching process that Israel's Jews -on
      all sides of the spectrum- have undergone in the last 2 decades.
      We're being told to relinquish parts of our homeland; even if one
      thinks it's an expedient and correct political choice, it should cause
      us enormous pain.  Now, however, there is no partner even for those
      who believed in the peace process, so that anguish is being delayed
      and replaced by the grief a reality of life on war footing.  As
      always, an insightful and deep interview with a man for whom Eve has
      tremendous respect, even when they disagree.

      The Secretary General of the World Jewish Congress is in New York for
      the UN meetings this week.  Dan Diker was way ahead of the curve when
      he published- along with Pinchas Inbari- the scoop that the PA was
      going unilateral a la the Kosovo Strategy way back in 2008.  It's not
      the settlement issue or anything else other than bad policy choices
      and willful blindness that led to this week's debacle at the UN.   We
      do have friends in Europe and Canada who are fighting the moral fight
      with us, but it's astonishing how a terror entity has the whole world
      dancing to its tune.  Whether the majority of the world is pro-Pal or
      anti-Israel (not mutually exclusive....) is a question, but a Pandora'
      Box has been opened and the UN will never be the same.  Google Dan
      Diker and Kosovo Strategy for the original paper.
