Yishai Fleisher is the International Spokesperson for the Jewish community of Hebron. He is a broadcaster on the LandofIsrael.com and is a frequent columnist for all the major English language news and analysis papers. Yishai holds a JD from Cardozo Law and rabbinic ordination from Kollel Agudat Achim. Yishai served as a Paratrooper in the IDF and continues to participate in an elite battlefield reserve unit.
No one missed the double entendre of your recent New York Times article title, “Don’t Shoot the Messenger, Israel”, which had the chutzpah to both accuse Israel of a hot head and insinuate an itchy trigger finger.
To kick off this week’s show, Yishai is joined by alternative peace activist Baruch Widen. Together, they discuss gun control and the atmosphere of violence that permeates the Middle East and how it affects attitudes in the entire region. Be sure to listen in!
