Today, we observe International Farhud Remembrance Day.

Are arson, murder, and riots coming here—this summer? On this day, we remember the horrific Arab-Nazi pogrom inflicted on the Jewish citizens of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities on June 1–2,1941—The Farhud. This violent dispossession was the beginning of the Nazi-style process of persecution and exclusion that would conclude with the expulsion of the Jews and the end of the 2,700-year-old Iraqi Jewish community. Yossie Hollander, Rabbi Elie Abadie, Sheldon Freilich, and Juda Engelmayer join Edwin to ask whether and when—and where—the next murderous riot might come to America.

No one dismisses the odious prediction anymore. The dispossession of Jews in America is now lurking right around the corner—chronologically and geographically. If it happens, this is how it will happen; Edwin outlines the potential process step by step.

Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin join Edwin for part four of the discussion that nobody ever wanted to have (part one; part two; part three). In addition, Juda Engelmayer reports on the massive local Jewish response to a pro-Palestinian agitation rally in front of a Teaneck, NJ synagogue.

Jewish people across the world have long wondered when and where the next Kishinev, Kristallnacht, or Farhud would occur. The answer (as we correctly speculated during our June 2023 Farhud Remembrance show) was Israel. It happened on October 7, 2023, as Israelis were wrapping up their Sukkot celebrations. Some 2,000 Hamas fighters attacked, killing and raping innocent civilians, kidnapping grandmothers and children, and live-streaming their barbarous acts. Violent pro-Palestinian—and outright pro-Hamas—demonstrations have erupted everywhere, from campuses to streets. Jews across America are beginning to ask the unthinkable question and ponder the unthinkable prospect: can it happen again—this time in America?

Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander, eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, and crusading Brandeis Center President Alyza Lewin join Edwin for part three of the discussion that nobody ever wanted to have (part one; part two), with special reports by Alan Dershowitz and Juda Engelmayer.

On October 7, 1,000 Hamas terrorists invaded Israel. Atrocities ensued against innocent civilian men, women, and children. Scores were abducted into Gaza. Israel has declared war and promised to utterly destroy Hamas and its infrastructure with an “unprecedented response.”

Yossie Hollander, Nathan Lewin, and Alex Traiman join Edwin, with additional reports from John Hajjar, Walid Phares, Marina Rosenberg, and Dor Weiss.

Is this the generation that will witness the end of the grand experiment in government of, for, and by the people … and the disappearance of America from the world stage? Geopolitical observer Yossie Hollander, ethics analyst Faye Lincoln, and historian Chris Lovett join Edwin.

Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic politicians and celebrities, and other racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Jewish locations are mapped and publicized, Berkeley Law School has nine “no-go” zones for pro-Israel speakers, synagogues are vandalized, and Jews are threatened and assaulted every day, coast to coast. The term “Zionist” is often a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is a new Kishinev, Farhud, or Kristallnacht coming to America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin join Edwin again for Part II of the discussion that nobody wants to have.

Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic Progressive Party politicians, and other racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Even now, they map the names and addresses of Jewish organizations and individuals. The label “Zionist” is becoming a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is this a prelude to a new Kishinev, a new Farhud, a new Kristallnacht in America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

A greener future beckons. But ignorance about the realities abounds. Solar panels reaching their end of life. Utility company shenanigans. Political polarization. Windmill pollution, EV proliferation, ethanol, and hydrogen. Fuel Freedom Foundation Chairman Yossie Hollander and Auto Channel Co-Founder Marc Rauch join Edwin to provide a needed Green Future reality check.

On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Edwin asks: Can it happen again? What would it take—and when? International Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander, Wiesenthal Center Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper, and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

More than a century ago, Thomas Edison attempted to steer the US toward electric cars. Several factors intervened to allow internal combustion to become the engine of the 20th century, including World War I and possible sabotage by petroleum interests. Automotive historian Marc Rauch and Yossie Hollander of the Fuel Freedom Foundation join Edwin to examine the past, present, and possible future of electric cars, and what they can—and cannot—solve.
