The latest news headlines are discussed, as well as the Arab attacks on the communities of Bet El, Amona, and other Jewish re-settlements. Why does it seem that the IDF soldiers aren't allowed to defend Israeli citizens properly? Chani Luz from Tadmit, a media watch dog agency that fights for more even handed coverage, reports about the latest Arab attacks on YESHA communities through rock attacks, firebomb attacks, and encroaching on the border fences. And the biggest news? ...that these incidents, though Jews are hurt, are barely covered in the media, unless a soldier or settler incurs damage on an Arab.
Shifra Hoffman talks about the beautiful city of Tzfat, and the radical moves of Finance Minister Yair Lapid.
Also, Why Do More Europeans Hate Israel? Italian journalist, Giulio Meotti joins Tamar and gives us a report on the growing Anti-Semitism in Europe. There are less Jews in Europe today, but anti-Semitism is on the rise, and Jews have to be invisible to survive.
Lastly, media expert, Aryeh Green from MediaCentral talks to us about, "Israel's Challenges in the Foreign press - a radical approach." How to help balance the information for foreign journalists writing about the mid-east conflict.
