On today's "Reality Bytes Radio with Josh Hasten," an exclusive interview with author and long-time journalist and Pro-Israel ("Pro-good and anti-evil" she says) activist Orit Arfa. Arfa, a resident of Los Angeles, recently founded the 'Creative Zionist Coalition of LA', an organization committed to sharing the truths about Israel through creative projects and campaigns. Her novel "The Settler" due out in the coming days, explores the painful aftermath of the controversial 2005, expulsion of Jews from Gaza.

Also on the show, Shomron Liaison Director David Ha'ivri reveals the true story behind a new anti-Israel campaign, which shuns the Jewish State for running 'Arab Only' bus lines - which they refer to as "Apartheid Buses." In reality says Ha'ivri, the buses, which provide convenient and subsidized transportation for Arabs who live in Judea and Samaria to reach their jobs in pre-1967 communities, has been applauded by the Arab laborers themselves since it makes their commute to work much easier. Despite that reality says Ha'ivri, those who call themselves "left-wingers" are diabolically using the buses as a means of accusing Israel of aspiring to Apartheid.
