A new trend can be helpful to people who wish to improve their health and visit the Holy Land at the same time. Medical Touring takes place in many countries but Israel has special drawing power. Jay interviews Eli Knoller of IsraMedica about this facinating new phenomenon.

Also, The Arab Spring has become the American Winter. Arabs are rioting against American symbols all over the world including Australia. It will be worse when the rioting starts in France and England. If the Arabs continue on their present path , the anti-American riot will become a metaphor for the whole region and in any country with a significant Moslem population. There will be no respite from the downward spiral of hate and spite, rage and self-pity, poverty and oppression, culminating in who knows what.
