David_twitter_400x400David Horovitz is one of the leading intellectuals and political analysts in all of Israel. That’s what Jay says at the top of this podcast. Later, Horovitz denies the intellectual part, but you can judge for yourself.

An Anglo-Israeli, born in London, Horovitz is the founding editor of the Times of Israel. He was the editor of the Jerusalem Post. He is the author of several books.

With him, Jay covers a lot of ground. Is Israel really under an existential threat? What about Obama’s deal with Iran? Do the Palestinians want to coexist? Why did you move to Israel? Do Israelis look askance at Jews who do not make that move? Can Israel tackle Iran militarily? What is the nature of the new European anti-Semitism? Same as the old? What about anti-Semitism on the Auld Sod, Britain? What do you make of Netanyahu? Have you become more conservative? What do you wish people, particularly Americans, could know?

If you have any interest in Israel or the Middle East — even if you don’t — you will likely find Mr. Horovitz illuminating and fascinating.

    This David Horovitz is not the David Horowitz of Front Page Magazine and Freedom Center. Sometimes people confuse them.

    Just thought people might like to know that Israel, at 8019 mi^2, is quite a bit larger than the King Ranch (1289 mi^2). However, it’s smaller than the world’s largest ranch, Anna Creek Station in Australia, at 9400 mi^2.

    Great interview!

    Might force myself to listen, just to hear what he’s telling you people. Not too fond of Mr. Horovitz myself; he’s the same sort of מה יופית , [human]-sacrifices-for-Peace type of dimwit that promised us Peace with the Palestinians and the approval of the whole world if we just followed their advice.

    Won’t Get Fooled Again.

    Agree with you Podkayne, don’t pay much attention to him myself.

    Did you listen? Nobody has put up a transcript. What did he say?
