On today's "Reality Bytes Radio with Josh Hasten," Arab affairs and Islam expert Bar-Ilan Professor Dr. Mordechai Kedar says that while Prime Minister Netanyahu gave a "brilliant" speech at the UN General Assembly this week explaining the dangers of a nuclear Iran, Israel has displayed a "total failure" over the last 20 years in convincing the world of the threats of Islamic terrorism by pursing the establishment of a "Palestinian State" in its midst. He asks "how can the world take us seriously," when Israel has shown that we don't care about our own security.
Also on the show, Ziva Glanz, the director of Jerusalem 5800, the first ever, long-term master plan for the entire Jerusalem metropolitan region. Glanz attended this week's conference at the Jerusalem International Convention Center alongside thousands of others, which called for the end of the two-state solution, and for continuing to build in Judea and Samaria. Glanz described the event as being full of "positive energy, and spirit," saying that a diverse group of mainstream attendees from all over the country gathered to discuss how "a two-state solution is not realistic."
