"Jew For a Day" Patrick Reilly, an Irish journalist reporting in Malmo, Sweden, did an experiment to see what it would be like to be 'a Jew' for a day. He donned a kippah and walked around the Swedish town to see what would happen.  What he experienced were giggles and belittlement, lipped curses of "f-cking Jew', cold hard stares, serious threatening looks, etc. He was relieved when the day was over and he could take off the kippah. Find out the details of his harrowing day as Tamar speaks with him about his daring act.  Read the article he wrote entitled:  Fear and giggles: A day as a Jew in Malmö

Also, what are they saying in the Arab media about Israel?  I.Q. Al Rassooli joins Tamar and gives us a run down on what the Arab press is writing about.

Shifra Hoffman talks about the legacy of Rabbi Meir Kahane z"l and the futile attempts of PM Binyamin Netanyahu trying to get the Palestinian Authority to recognize Israel as a Jewish State.

And lastly, Tamar talks about the changing world we live in, taking us from thousands of years ago, to Aristocratic Europe, to the roaring 20's to the hippie movement of the '60's to the plastic glitz of Hollywood today.  Can America and the West return to a more ethical world with family values, or is it doomed to run itself into the ground?  Tamar gives her take of the situation.
