As you know, Radio Free Nachlaot's co-founder and Programming Director Lorelai Kude journeyed from Jerusalem to Berkeley a couple of months ago, where she's been staying in the "Peace Room" and investigating what she calls "The Knee-Jerk Reactionary 'Liberal' Heart of Darkness," otherwise known as the notorious anti-Israel, antisemitic activism that goes on in the Bay Area.

We'll be playing Lorelai's "Heart to Heart" (a Mitzvah Media Production for Radio Free Nachlaot) interviews with Blogger and Native/Indigenous activist RYAN MERVIN BELLEROSE, South Africa-based academic and Native/Indigenous activist JAY CORWIN and Institute for Black Solidarity Founder DUMISANI WASHINGTON.

Another small but important point here - Radio Free Nachlaot has always been what Steve and Lorelai like to call "family friendly programming," and although one of Lorelai's worst midot (character traits) is her propensity for using swear words and foul language (something she's been WORKING ON very hard to correct since starting RFN together with Steve, from whose lips no one in living memory has ever heard a curse word issue), her use of the word "Bullshit" in her "Heart to Heart" series "Calling Bullshit on BDS" is deliberate. Because there's a time and place for 'language' and this is the time, and this is the place. "Bullshit" is a term that denotes complete falsehood, and if anyone deserves to have "Bullshit" called on them, it's the BDS Movement, which has done harm to Israel and the Jewish People by spreading lies as if they were fact, and usurping the struggles of other Peoples illegitimately while using every means possible to discredit, marginalize and isolate Israel from the world community.
So ... it's not swearing. It's using the term "bullshit" responsibly and accurately.
