Danny Danon’s UN appointment, terrorist attacks in Israel, the state of the hunger-striker and Matisyahu’s disinvitation are today’s topics.
First, the appointment of Danny Danon as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations has bred much controversy. The panel discusses what Prime Minister Netanyahu’s strategy might be in making this selection, and consider what the national and international reactions and repercussions may be.
Then, the panel recaps the recent spate of “lone wolf attacks,” and debates what is fueling the recent Palestinian-led violence against Jews. They ask: Is this the beginning of the next intifada?
Next, the panel reviews the progress of the terrorist being held in Israeli administrative detention, who is still on a hunger-strike. 63 days later, he is in a coma. The panel considers how the situation is being handled, and the supposed “code of ethics” that doctors are citing to keep from force-feeding him.
Finally, reggae star Matisyahu refused to sign a statement that he supports the Palestinian state, and was then banned from a concert in Spain. The panel discusses the underlying anti-Semitism — not just anti-Zionism — of this incident.
