In Israel we once had Adir Zik on Arutz 7's radio station, but the government succeeded in shutting down the radio and G-d took Zik, ZaTz"L, to the Next World, Olam HaBa. What remains of Arutz 7 is a shadow of what it once was. Just the internet, without strong charismatic leadership, it's a multilingual news service. It's a salad of ideas. I was almost going to call it a Minestrone Soup, but a soup is cooked, flavors combined, even when you can still bite into the various ingredients. Arutz 7 doesn't have that. Each language is run independently. I've been blogging on the English Page for two and a half years. There's no interaction between the languages. I asked about having some of my posts translated for the Hebrew site and was told that the English editor has no contact with the Hebrew one. The English page is aimed for international and multicultural and multi-religious readership. Writers and commentators have to make sure that all Hebrew terms are translated.
Israel is suffering a great crisis in leadership. The Left has filled the vacuum and control everything they can. I'm not giving up. I'm not alone. The sparks of true Jewish-Israeli leadership may be hard to discern, but they're smoldering, burning somewhere and will grow strong G-d willing.
