Not a week passes without Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatening 'to wipe Israel off the map'.

Yosef "Tommy" Lapid (1931-2008)

Yosef 'Tommy' Lapid, one of Israel's most controversial journalists and politicians, has died of cancer at the age of seventy-seven. After an outstanding career in journalism, Lapid led the Shinui party to an election success in 2003 joining the former Sharon as justice minister. A bitter rival of the ultra-orthodox religious community in Israel, Lapid ran on an anti-religious ticket. After leaving politics, Lapid was appointed by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to head the Yad VaShem Memorial for the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Himself a Holocaust survivor, 'Tommy Lapid' was never at a loss for words in taking on what he viewed as anti-semitic lecturers in Britain or those who acquiesce in Iran's threats to wipe Israel off the map.

Bush Backs Olmert

U.S. President George W. Bush has returned to Israel - this time to mark Israel's 60th birthday. The American leader landed after declaring that Israel will have a 'strong friend and ally in America whoever is president'. Although plagued by a police investigation into campaign contributions, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was obviously delighted with the Bush visit and warmly welcomed the U.S. President. However, IsraCast notes that although the U.S. has been pushing hard for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a leading Hamas official has vowed the Palestinians will never recognize Israel and will destroy the Zionist state.

Holocaust - Past & Present

The Jewish state is marking this year's Holocaust Remembrance Day against the backdrop of Iran's repeated threats to wipe Israel off the map as Tehran steps up its drive to acquire nuclear weapons. At the Auschwitz death camp in Poland, IDF Chief of Staff Gaby Ashkenazi Israel compared the Allies refusal to bomb the gas chambers during World War II and the situation today. In Jerusalem, President Shimon Peres asked rhetorically: 'What would remain of the world if Hitler had acquired the atomic bomb' while Prime Minister Ehud Olmert declared: 'There will never be another Holocaust!' Today we return to a defining moment in Israel's quest to bring Nazi war criminals to justice - IsraCast presents a riveting interview with the late Gideon Hausner, the chief prosecutor of Adolph Eichmann in Jerusalem.

Israeli Intelligence Jeopardized?

In an in-depth interview, Patir assesses prospects for Prime Minister Olmert and Syrian President Assad to follow in the footsteps of Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat in forging a peace treaty.

Lawyers & Diplomats

Former American diplomat Aaron David Miller has stirred up a new controversy over who is to blame in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Miller in his book 'The Much Too Promised Land' charged the U.S. was biased toward Israel and even acting as 'Israel's lawyer'. In an interview with IsraCast, a former Israeli ambassador to Washington, Zalman Shoval rejects the contention saying it distorts the true reality and warns that although Miller probably blames the Arabs more than Israel his book will give fuel to Israel's adversaries.

MIDDLE EAST REFUGEES - PALESTINIAN & JEWISH

Irwin Cotler, a Canadian MP and former justice minister in Canada, has said there is no legal or moral basis for the Palestinian demand that the Palestinian refugees be allowed to return to Israel. In an interview with IsraCast, Prof. Cotler contended that the Arab League rejection of the 1947 Partition Plan and its war against the new born state of Israel was responsible not only for the estimated 550,000 Palestinian refugees, but also for the some one-million Jewish refugees who were driven out of Arab countries after their property and assets were sequestered.

GAZA SHOWDOWN

After the Palestinians continued their rocket barrage of Israeli towns, IDF troops, tanks and helicopter gunships were sent into action in the northern Gaza Strip. Defense Minister Ehud Barak said their mission was to drive the terrorists out of range from Israeli population centers without reoccupying the Gaza Strip. Rather than halting the rocket attacks, the elected Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh vowed to continue attacking Israel declaring: 'We love death more than the Israelis love life!' In an interview with IsraeCast, Dr. Dan Schueftan, an Israeli Middle East expert at Haifa University, said the current Israeli operation must break the Palestinian will and capability to rocket Israeli civilians.

IRAN'S NUCLEAR GENOCIDE THREATS

IDF Intelligence Chief Maj. Gen Amos Yadlin has said that Iran may acquire a nuclear weapons option by 2010. In a closed door briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, the intelligence chief reported that the Iranians had run into some 'technological problems' in uranium enrichment while, with the help of North Korea, they are developing new missiles with a range of up to 3,500 kilometers. Canadian MP Irwin Cotler, a former Canadian Justice Minister and McGill Law professor, told IsraCast that Iranian President Ahmadinejad's threats 'to wipe Israel off the map' are in flagrant violation of the U.N. charter and something should be done about it.

IRAQ - VIETNAM OR MUNICH?

Prof. Bernard Lewis, considered by many to be the dean of Middle East experts, has rejected the comparison of the U.S. role in Iraq to Vietnam. Addressing the Jerusalem conference in the Israeli capital, Lewis called it: 'a total false analogy' - it may be more similar to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in his capitulation to Nazi Germany's Adolph Hitler at Munich in 1938. Among other topics, Lewis also explained why many Arab leaderships now view radical Islam and Iran as more dangerous than Israel.
