Today we have a different guest to discuss the state of things in Israel following the hostilities with Gaza several weeks ago. Joining us from his home country is David Rubin (shilohisraelchildren.org), Founder and President of the Shiloh Israel Children's Fund and former mayor of Shiloh, Israel. He describes the efforts in finally forming a coalition government and what will likely be the policies moving forward for the new Bennett administration. He also looks at how Israel can learn from both its past successes and failures.

The terms "racist" and "white supremacist" are thrown around constantly in today's public discourse, but does anyone know the true meaning of the words?  Jeff Schoep (www.beyondbarriersusa.org), Founder of Beyond Barriers, joins us today to describe his journey from leader of the country's largest neo-Nazi organization for 25 years to an outspoken opponent of hate and shepherd to those wishing to leave extremist organizations.  He discusses how people align themselves with extremist groups to begin with, what his group believed during his tenure, and how he helps rescue people from the cycle of hatred.
