A live broadcast on Army Radio from Susya, near Hevron, went ahead as
scheduled on Wednesday, despite attempts by leftist anarchists to
Prior to the broadcast, the anarchists protested outside the
station’s studios in Yafo in an attempt to get the station to cancel
it. However, Army Radio Commander Yaron Dekel instructed the show to
go ahead as scheduled.
The show was hosted by the station’s political analyst Idan Kweller,
who spoke to local residents and presented the beautiful face of the
Jewish settlement in Susya and in all Judea and Samaria.
The program presented the local education systems, entrepreneurs,
farmers, youth, artists and tourism industry, among others.
Mount Hevron Regional Council head Zviki Bar-Hai, who was a guest on
the program, welcomed Army Radio’s decision to run the program as
scheduled despite the protest.
“Since the inception of the settlement enterprise we have marched
together with the IDF and our sons serve in the army and see it as a
Zionist institution, which is essential to the revival of the
country,” he said, adding, “Army Radio Commander Yaron Dekel is
worthy of praise for not succumbing to the pressure by all kinds of
anarchist factors who tried to hitch a ride on the backs of the
settlement and of the IDF.”
Army Radio responded by saying, “Army Radio reflects in its
broadcasting all the parts of Israeli society and will continue to
broadcast from anywhere. We have no interest in being drawn into
political debates, but rather wish to do our job loyally for our
listening audience everywhere.” (IsraelNationalNews © 2011 08/02/12)
