Today's headlines and news reports, as well as weekly guest, Shifra Hoffman, informs you that some of Israeli's taxes are going to give ice cream to the knesset.  Why can't they pay for their own sweet treats when so many in the population are in dire need of more important funding?!  Are we witnessing an ice cream-gate? 

Also,  I.Q. Al Rassooli answers questions from a listener from Europe who wrote in, and then Italian journalist, Giulio Meotti joins Tamar and talks about his op-ed piece, "The Pope was Not a Friend of the Jews", and also what's going on in Italy in regards to the resignation of the present pope, and the mystery of who will be the next one.
