While the domestic strife in Israel is enough to make anyone feel distressed, the fact is that the fissure tearing Israelis apart is not as deep or as wide as they seem from the news. While the angry, massively funded rallies of the left against the Netanyahu government and its voters, and the angry responses of the government’s voters make it seem like Israel is tearing itself apart, the vast majority of Israelis remain completely committed to the State of Israel and the Zionist vision of Jewish national salvation and renaissance in the Land of Israel.
To explore the vastness of the shared ideal and significance of the State of Israel for the Jewish people, former Prisoner of Zion, former government minister and former chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel Natan Sharansky was Caroline’s guest on the show this week. Sharansky has spoken out against the government’s judicial reform effort, while Caroline is an outspoken advocate for massive reform of the legal system. The two chose to ignore what divides them and instead had an in-depth, inspiring discussion of the meaning of Israel and Zionism for the Jewish people in Israel and around the world.
In her opening, Caroline discussed the left’s threats to wreak havoc during Memorial Day ceremonies at military cemeteries and the path that Israel must cross to bridge the gaps that divide society as Israel enters its 76th year.
