Discussing just how amazing Beresheet and Space IL’s achievement was even though they didn’t land gently on the moon. And at the same time the USA was kicking my friend Avi Yemini out of the country and back to Australia!
Not content with smearing Ben Shapiro as being some sort of alt-Right leader instead of one of its most hated targets, The Economist is consistently maliciously wrong about Israel. In today’s podcast I deconstruct the following paragraph from their article about Israel’s forthcoming election.
This is the Eurabia edition of The Economist I remember and talk about here.
It’s so hard to believe this story is true, and that the person writing it went through all of this and lived to tell us her amazing story. And that’s for me when Kay is very good friend of mine.
Kay’s new book is beautifully written. She describes events that very few people have ever survived, her strength and courage after being attacked were amazing. The story begins with how she and her friend were viciously attacked, her friend murdered before her eyes and Kay left for dead. What follows is a funny and thought provoking description of her PTSD after the attack and path to recovery and personal healing and growth is inspiring beyond words. Along the way she has to face her would be murderers in court and, somewhat more scarily, the parents of Kristine Luken, the Christian, American woman who was murdered by the terrorists.
Obviously this experience changed the author and it can clearly be seen from the book how she almost died to write this. In the end there is hope in the story and an inspiration of how powerful the force to live is even in the face of the most crushing evil imaginable.
The Kindle e-book is available right now, the paperback will be ready in a few weeks. Kay’s story is amazing and this is a beautifully written account of it with many more details and beautiful touches than I have ever heard in the many interviews Kay’s given.
You can find more information about Kay on her own website, released with the book: The Rage Less Traveled. This weekend the Jerusalem Post is running an in depth interview with Kay.

Just before I woke up this morning a surface to surface missile fired by terrorists in Gaza flew right over my home and millions of other people in central Israel and exploded with a huge boom in a moshav (village) to the north of Tel Aviv.
Here’s what these surface to surface missiles look like. Calling them rockets or (worse) “home made rockets” is lethal journalism, you’ll hear it a lot later.
This is the sound people to the north of me woke up to. You have to scramble to get your kids to a shelter if you have one in your home as modern Israeli homes do, or to a communal one. You may not get there in time. There was probably 60 to 90s warning.
Drone footage of the damage.
Ground shots of the damage.
Currently the reports say 6 people were injured including 2 babies.
Netanyahu was due to speak at AIPAC on Tuesday, he’ll cut that and fly back to Israel today. His political rival, Benny Gantz will probably stay on and speak today I’m guessing.
The lunatics and the Israel/Jew haters will start shouting about false flags and talking about the Israeli elections. The much more likely reason is that Gaza is a seething cauldron of anger against Hamas: massive demonstrations brutally repressed that you haven’t heard about over the last few weeks.
I’ll tell you something though, this tweet is not an uncommon view here.
My friend, Kay Wilson, writes this on Facebag:
It goes like this:
You bet, I thought.
So the BBC called me and explained that they would also be interviewing a Palestinian family who gets a load of money because of their murderous son, sitting in an Israeli jail.
I wasn’t put off.
I have UK citizenship.
I am fluent in English.
I am articulate.
And…. in my moral favor, I have also started a clandestine project in a Palestinian refugee camp with a Muslim friend, to counter-radicalize children and teach them to clutch onto life and resist adults who teach them to hate.
I just heard back.
“Umm…. you’re too famous, we need someone less well known, so I’m very sorry, but we wont be interviewing you.”
They are scared of me. They would rather choose an Israeli who struggles with English, so he/she looks “foreign,” and it will bring the “balance,” needed
Moral cowards. I find them obscene.Kay Wilson – Facebook.
For those of you who don’t know, Kay Wilson survived a brutal terrorist attack by two Palestinian terorrists. She watched as her friend was murdered before her and she was left for dead in a forest having been hacked 13 times with a machete with a final blow just a hair’s breadth from her heart.
Her would be murderers, the men who murdered her American, Christian friend (and another Israeli woman in a separate attack) now sit in an Israeli prison. They were caught quickly because Kay managed to stab and wound one of them in his thigh. The terrorists and their families receive a monthly “salary” from the Palestinian Authority.
Kay is by far and away the most eloquent speaker on the injustice and sheer horror of this “pay to slay” program you can imagine. Kay’s amazing book, “The Rage Less Traveled” will be published in the next couple of weeks.
Which is precisely why the evil BBC cannot and will not give her air time before the British public. She doesn’t fit their agenda of demonising Israelis and lifting up to sainthood the “Palestinian People”.
Here’s a clip of the real terrorist explaining why he murdered Kristine Luken and tried to murder Kay Wilson. This is not a drama, this is a real police interview tape at the scene of the murder, days after it took place.
