  1. Wonderful interview, Mr Nehemiah, Mr Oren obviously is quite a man. Only thing I disagree on is the incident with USS Liberty. I’m no pro but have done a bit of investigating on it. Not going to bother with sources because I can’t imagine you caring enough to investigate it but all the info I got I will confess I got online. No doubt in my mind Pres Johnson requested it, wanted no survivors, would have blamed it on Egypt and we would have attacked. Whatever the scenario, it wasn’t an accident. He has to stick with the official narrative but that doesn’t take away his brilliance on everything else and I definitely learned from it. Will get his book.

  2. I enjoyed Michael Oren’s discussion, except for the motto for Israel at the end. I must ask, is not sanctioning/condoning of the LGBT community/lifestyle, not in direct violation of the Torah? While I freely admit it is not my place to be judgmental, and these lifestyles have existed since the dawn of time, is it not an ABOMINATION in Hashem’s eyes for the government to approve/legalize these perverted behaviors? Can the Jews be a people holy to Hashem if their leaders are going to accept unholy lifestyles that He opposes, and NOT purge evil from the midst of them? Is it not this type of stubborn rebellion against His ways, not the very reason “why” Hashem turned His back on the generations of old?

  3. Interesting, second listen… Now the unacknowledgeable elephant AND gorilla in the room. Israel (and of course by extension all other nations) cannot be permanent without alliance with YHWH. All of the other temporal alliances and battles are mere window dressing compared to that reality.

  4. Ok, this was very informative, however I cannot help thinking of a wise old proverb, “the more things change the more they remain the same”. Israel’s continuing reliance on the superpower of the day is an exercise in futility, regardless of how beneficial it may seem. Isa 31:1 “Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and who rely on horses; they trust in chariots because the are many and in horsemen because the are very strong, and they did not turn to the Holy One of Israel and did not seek out yehovah. Isa 31:3 “Egypt is a man and not God,and their horses are flesh and not of spirit; and yehovah will stretch out his hand and the helper will stumble and he will fall the one helped, and they will perish all of them together”.

  5. In answer to what we as Americans can do… we can pray for peace for Israel, pray for wisdom and Truth to be made known and for Israeli’s to receive the Truth… Trusting Yehovah enough to speak His name!

  6. What is israel? It is the one more chance, in mercy, for the Jewish people to get the covenant with YHWH right! The “rights” of the “alphabet soup” community are a step away from that happy resolution to the sad years of the exile. They have the right, as do all others, to seek Yah with all their heart, in repentance to justice, mercy, and humility. Glad you are back israel; please think sustainability.

  7. So, so, so good, Nehemia, thanks!!! Full of revelation, missing facts and better understanding of history and the current situation. listening again, and likely again….

  8. Isa 2:3-4 …For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

    Until that glorious day leaders of nations better study war for without that understanding their entire people, nation and, their very history is at risk from others who covet their land and treasure. At the core of that understanding is the knowledge of the history of war.

    Thank you for bringing us this interview. It is one that I will listen to over and over again. Especially interesting is the US Liberty account. I have former shipmates who are still raw about this episode. Until now I had no way of explaining it.

    I will also share it on Facebook. This is information that everyone should hear. Whether they will listen to it or believe what they hear is another matter.
