On today's "Reality Bytes Radio, with Josh Hasten," activists and residents of Southern Israel discuss the best way to help the more than one million Israelis still under rocket and missile fire, launched by terrorists in Gaza. Kfar Aza resident Adva Klein says that the people of the south aren't interested in "charity," but want people to come down and show their support. In addition she says that the government must act to end the rocket barrages.

Also One Israel Fund security chief Marc Provisor joins the show live from the South as he hands out emergency first response equipment to the security chiefs along the border. He calls the situation in the south "criminal negligence."

In addition we discuss politics with Ashley Perry Deputy Director General of communications with the Yisrael Beitenu party. Perry is excited about his party's merger with Likud.

Finally Likud Anglo's Chairman Daniel Tauber says that initially he was against the merger with Yisrael Beitenu, and now has mixed feelings towards this reality, but he plans to make the best of it. Tauber also announces on air EXCLUSIVELY TO REALITY BYTES, his intention to run for Knesset on the Likud's 28th spot on the list which is the Jerusalem district slot.
