A7 Radio's "News & Call-In with Tamar Yonah" with Tamar Yonah
Follow Israel Radio on
Israelis witnessed the largest gathering EVER, in the history of the modern state of Israel. Masses came out to pay their last respects to Torah Giant, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef z"l. Between 800,000 to a million people came together to accompany Rabbi Yosef to his final resting place. Police and security forces were overwhelmed and even his political critics were impressed by the massive turn out. Who was this 'Gadol HaDor' and will anyone try to fill his shoes?
Tamar interviews a follower of Rabbi Yosef, Aaron Hai, who authors the blog, Jewish Teachings. He shares an interesting story about the rabbi when he met with the King of Spain. Also, INR's Ben Bresky comes on and shares his experiences attending the funeral.
Afterwards, former Arab Terrorist Walid Shoebat, author of the book, "Why We Want to Kill You" comes on the show and talks about the latest developments in Egypt, Turkey, Iran, and the White House.
