The latest news in Israel, plus a special focus on the tensions with Syria.  Arutz Sheva's Sr. News Editor, Chana Yaari joins Tamar and gives a run down on the top news stories.
Then, Shifra Hoffman shares a victory story with Tamar on how 'activism' and 'your voice' can really help!

Want to go on a great and inexpensive day-tour in Jerusalem?  Visit Hezekiah's water tunnel!  Tamar enthralls you with her time visiting this ancient site mentioned in the Bible.  Israeli certified Tour Guide, Shalom Pollack then joins Tamar and explains that through these archaeological finds, scientific facts are now on (and in) the ground, showing us that these Biblical stories are true, and that 'belief' is unnecessary for scoffers, when we are finding confirmations of these stories from other culture's historical writings, and archaeological finds.  A fun, educational, and even spooky segment, all at the same time!
Lastly, Aaron Braunstein, from the Israel Covenant Alliance, joins Tamar and pundits on the threats and spillover, from Syria.  It seems that the best course at this time, is for PM Netanyahu to tip-toe through the tense situation in the north with Syria, in order to try to minimize an attack from that war-torn country and frustrated fighters.  Braunstein, is a former U.S. Foreign Service Officer who has worked in Washington, Egypt, Tunisia, and Muslim West Africa for 30 years as part of the United States Foreign Service. He explains the Arab-Islamic mindset, and paints a picture of how the Syrians might drag Israel into the conflict, and why.  A very informative interview and program.
