On today's "Reality Bytes Radio, with Josh Hasten," Judean Eve Harow says that despite condemnation, Israel must continue to have its own best interests in mind. Specifically, she says that Israel must continue to build for Jewish residents even if the United States, the European Union, the United N, and even some American Rabbis condemn the Jewish State. She adds that for once and for all Israel must recognize that we are alone and the UN is simply not our friend.

Also on the program, Ambassador (Ret.) Yoram Ettinger discusses the rumors that the US administration is set to nominate Senator John Kerry as Secretary of State and former Senator Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense. While both have questionable voting records on Israel, Ettinger says the true problem is their "worldview." He adds that the greatest concern isn't Kerry or Hagel per say but the person who is nominating them (President Obama).
