My Appearance on France24


I am interviewed on the subject of the suspension of construction.

My section begins about 6:20 until 9:10.

I had arisen at 5:10 to make the 5:55 AM bus into Jerusalem so I could be at the studio at 7:45. So, if I sound just a bit sluggish, sorry.

In any case, it was done live with an earpiece which always gives a slight delay (causing you to appear to begin to open your mouth before the question is fully over). And you are facing a camera but there are two small monitors just to the right so you are always afraid of letting your gaze stray.

I noticed how they ran those violent scenes all through your interview.
that's called media bias.

do they run backstage smooching between anchorman and anchorwomen, or smoking in the hallway, or imbibing some booze while they read the news?

I watched you on France 24. You were brilliant.

You answered perfectly. You were fast, knowledgable and had the PERFECT comeback lines.

I am a writer, not a speaker.
I have to think for ten minutes before I have an answer to something, and you just shot back every answer brilliantly.

Kol hakavod. I'm going to watch it again, and then head off to sleep.

Great that you brought in the League of Nations, and also said, "Yes, it can be difficult with Arabs blowing up schools and buses." You're terrif. Quick thining.

You did a great job on French TV!

I forced myself to watch through the rubbish and smugness to see you and you didn’t disappoint. Congrats!

I noticed a lot of things. A constant smirk on the she-b*tch for starters.
