  • What is the significance of the comment made by Rabbi Schmu about Candace Owens?

    -Rabbi Schmu's comment, which involved dressing up and mocking Candace Owens, was seen as highly inappropriate and a desecration of God's name, reflecting a lack of sensitivity towards the Jewish community and anti-Semitism.

    -The speaker believes that the southern border is a significant factor in the fentanyl crisis, with drug cartels using illegal immigration as a misdirect to smuggle fentanyl into the country.

Donald Trump yesterday Trump said this

00:06

you have to finish up your War you have

00:08

Hamas or did he mean they should bring

00:17

things to an end now and they should now

00:19

move to try and find peace the world

00:21

does not seem to have the attention span

00:23

to maintain any level of support for

00:24

anyone whether you're talking about

00:25

Ukraine or whether you're talking about

00:26

Israel for a prolonged period of time in

00:28

a war against a ter enemy and so when

00:31

President Trump says something like you

00:33

need to finish this up I think that he's

00:34

speaking a baseline truth there a

00:36

majority of people in Israel want to get

00:38

rid of Netanyahu but the polls show is

00:41

that Israelis would love to have another

00:42

election but they've had five elections

00:44

in four years it's it's always sort of

00:45

weird when people talk about Israel

00:47

needs a new election they have more new

00:48

elections than Taylor Swift has outfit

00:50

changes during one of her concerts I am

00:53

dressed up as a c ens what is your

00:55

reaction to that clip I mean the phrase

00:57

in Hebrew is that's what we would call a

00:58

hash right it's a it's a desecration of

01:01

God's name do you think he should be

01:02

given air time anymore that sort of

01:05

behavior is is disgusting in any context

01:07

frankly I don't know an orthodox Jew who

01:09

feels differently about that not one and

01:12

dis who's now left daily wire was she

01:15

fired or did she leave of her own bition

01:17

as far as the Free Speech situation what

01:19

I will say is that no company has the

01:21

obligation to literally pay

01:27

anyone the UN Security Council is

01:29

demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza

01:31

after the US failed to veto his

01:33

resolution leaving Israel increasingly

01:35

isolated on the world stage President

01:37

Biden's relationship with prime minister

01:38

Netanyahu has collapsed over the rising

01:41

Palestinian death toll now Donald Trump

01:43

has warned it's time for Israel to

01:45

finish up the war as it hemorrhages

01:47

international support So can and should

01:48

Israel press on alone to discuss this

01:51

and much more I'm joined by the daily

01:53

wies editor Emeritus and host of The

01:55

Divided states of Biden on daily y plus

01:58

Ben shapira Ben great to see you

02:00

hey good to see you pierce how are you

02:03

you know hanging in how are you awful

02:05

wonder how many people ask you that

02:08

question yeah I don't get that too much

02:10

so I was kind of surprised by the

02:11

question

02:13

honestly I'm gonna come to uh some stuff

02:16

that's involved you recently but let's

02:17

start with Israel um you're going to

02:20

co-host a fundraiser for Donald Trump

02:22

yesterday Trump said

02:25

this that being said you have to finish

02:28

up your War finish it up you got to get

02:31

it done and uh I'm sure you'll do that

02:35

and we got to get to peace you can't

02:36

have this going on uh and I will say

02:39

Israel has to be very careful because

02:41

you're losing a lot of the world you're

02:43

losing a lot of support but you have to

02:45

finish up you have to get the job done

02:47

and you have to get on to peace what did

02:50

you make of what he said there there's

02:52

been a bit of disagreement about what he

02:53

intended to mean did he mean Israel

02:56

should be able to continue to try and

02:59

eliminate all of Hamas whatever it takes

03:01

to finish that job or did he mean they

03:04

should they should bring things to an

03:05

end now they've done enough and they

03:07

should now move to try and find peace so

03:10

I actually did host co-host a fundraiser

03:12

with President Trump last week and we

03:13

did briefly speak about this topic my

03:15

impression is that President Trump is

03:17

saying what is certainly true here which

03:18

is that the the clock has been ticking

03:20

on Israel literally since October 7th in

03:23

terms of finishing up its operation the

03:25

world does not seem to have the

03:26

attention span to maintain any level of

03:28

support for anyone whether you're

03:29

talking about Ukraine where you're

03:30

talking about Israel for a prolonged

03:31

period of time in a war against a

03:33

terrible enemy and so when President

03:35

Trump says something like you need to

03:37

finish this up I think that he's

03:38

speaking a baseline truth there which is

03:40

that Israel does need to hurry and and

03:41

finish this up and frankly they should

03:43

have been moving faster in the first

03:45

place I think it's more of a PR Point

03:46

than it is an idea that Israel should

03:48

should stop for example by by not going

03:50

into Rafa I I don't think that's what

03:51

president Trump is saying there do you

03:53

feel comfortable but we talked about

03:55

this war a lot do you feel comfortable

03:57

about a Full Assault on Rafa if 1 and a

04:01

half million people remain in that

04:04

vicinity including majority women and

04:07

children because it would obviously be

04:09

in that instance devastating in terms of

04:12

Civilian casualties and would pour even

04:15

more pressure on Israel and lose them

04:18

even more support I mean do do you think

04:20

this is the right

04:21

strategy well I think that Israel is is

04:24

pretty United in its belief that it is

04:25

and Israel I think is best positioned to

04:27

adjudicate its own interests when it

04:29

comes to things like like you're talking

04:30

about whether it's international support

04:32

or the future of of the Gaza Strip my

04:34

understanding is from from all of the

04:36

public discussions that have been

04:37

happening that there's significant

04:38

discussion about how to try to move

04:40

civilians out of the way one of the big

04:41

problems has been that Egypt won't open

04:43

the gate even temporarily to allow

04:44

enough civilians outside of Rafa so that

04:46

Israel can perform operations inside of

04:48

Rafa apparently there are four Hamas

04:49

battalions that are currently located

04:51

inside of Rafa I'm sure that if the

04:53

United States are the International

04:54

Community could offer Israel some sort

04:56

of Harry Potter spell to disappear all

04:58

of the Kamas terrorists inside I'm sure

05:00

Israel would take it the last thing

05:01

Israel wants to do is maximize civilian

05:03

casualties what's been perfectly obvious

05:04

is that Hamas has precisely the opposite

05:06

view they would love to maximize

05:07

civilian casualties because the the

05:09

increasing civilian death toll as you've

05:11

pointed out has been the single Factor

05:13

that's been leading to increased

05:15

pressure on Israel to leave Hamas alone

05:17

what do you make of Biden uh really

05:20

turning on Netanyahu I mean this this

05:22

decision not to veto this resolution is

05:26

the latest escalation really in the

05:29

American Administration under Biden

05:31

reigning back its support of Israel how

05:33

significant is that and what do you

05:35

think about Biden doing this I mean

05:38

obviously I think that he's morally

05:39

wrong to to abstain from a resolution

05:41

that seems to disconnect the hostage

05:44

situation from the ceasefire all of the

05:45

versions the United States had been

05:46

pushing prior suggested that in order

05:48

for a ceasefire to be called for or

05:50

attained there had to be a release of

05:52

the hostages this particular version of

05:53

the UN resolution sort of separates off

05:55

the two issues doesn't mention Hamas

05:56

doesn't mention October 7th that's

05:58

that's the point of contention with with

05:59

regard to the UN Security Council

06:01

resolution the United States abstained

06:03

from as far as the sort of increased

06:04

pressure that that Biden or Chuck

06:06

Schumer the Senate Majority Leader here

06:07

have been putting on the Netanyahu

06:08

Administration frankly I think it's it's

06:10

political dishonesty I think that there

06:12

there are a lot of members of the

06:13

democratic party who are very critical

06:14

of Israel's government full scale

06:16

they're trying to put it on Netanyahu

06:17

because they realize that a lot of the

06:19

sort of liberal Jewish base in the

06:20

United States that votes Democrat

06:22

supports Israel but also doesn't like

06:23

Netanyahu very much but they're ignoring

06:25

the central reality in Israel which is

06:26

that there is fullscale public support

06:28

for going into Rafa from right left and

06:30

center the current government of the

06:31

state of Israel is a war cabinet

06:33

including the chief rival to Benjamin

06:35

Netanyahu benians who just vote who just

06:37

visited the United States and in fact

06:38

was treated to much of the same language

06:40

by the Biden Administration to so to

06:42

suggest that it's sort of netanyahu's

06:43

own political domestic manipulations

06:45

leading to his desire to go into Rafa

06:47

Netanyahu is in fact correct when he

06:49

suggest that there is Broad public

06:50

support for going into Rafa and in fact

06:52

if the current War cabinet does not go

06:54

into Rafa there's a very solid chance

06:56

that the government of Israel Falls in

06:57

their new elections I mean that is true

06:59

about the support definitely but it's

07:01

also true that a majority of people in

07:04

Israel want to get rid of Netanyahu so

07:07

this is a support for but not during but

07:08

not during not during the actual

07:10

conflict right what the polls show is

07:11

that Israelis would love to have another

07:13

election but not right at the moment

07:15

meaning that they've had five elections

07:17

in four years it's it's always sort of

07:18

weird when people talk about Israel

07:19

needs a new election they have more new

07:21

elections than Taylor Swift has outfit

07:23

changes during one of our concerts it's

07:25

not as though there's a lack of

07:26

Elections I do find it sort of strange

07:28

that there's always a call for new

07:29

elections in Israel which again has many

07:31

many elections I have yet to hear for a

07:32

call for elections in say the West Bank

07:34

or Gaza Strip where there has not been

07:35

an election since 2005 and there's a

07:37

reason for that and the reason for that

07:38

is because everybody understands if

07:40

there were an election in the Gaza

07:41

stripper West Bank Kamas would actually

07:43

win what I don't understand about

07:46

Israel's strategy is how they perceive

07:49

actual Victory yes you can take out the

07:52

30 to 35,000 Hamas terrorists yeah maybe

07:56

they can do that and maybe in the

07:58

process of that they kill tens of

08:00

thousands more civilians and have to

08:02

deal with the uh with the uh contention

08:05

that that will cause worldwide and maybe

08:08

Israelis don't care about that part long

08:09

to get rid of Hamas so let's get to an

08:11

end game where Hamas has gone why does

08:14

leveling Gaza and killing so many

08:16

civilians why would that give anyone in

08:19

Israel any kind of comfort that that

08:22

would that would kill off the ideology

08:24

that fueled Hamas that it wouldn't

08:26

actually just lead to an increase in

08:29

that IDE ology more hatred towards

08:31

Israelis more hatred towards Jewish

08:34

people I've never quite understood what

08:35

the end game looks like here for Israel

08:38

that makes Israel more secure well I

08:40

mean the end game presumably is security

08:43

not a sort of dynamic ideological

08:44

scoring among a population that right

08:46

now overwhelmingly supports the October

08:48

7th attacks and prior to October 7th

08:50

overwhelmingly supported Terror attacks

08:52

against the state of Israel and

08:53

overwhelmingly supported the destruction

08:55

of the state of Israel the sort of idea

08:57

that more conciliation from Israel was

08:59

bring bringing about peaceful conditions

09:00

with the Palestinian Authority or with

09:01

Hamas has been obviously proved false by

09:04

the fact that Israel literally withdrew

09:05

all IDF forces from the Gaza Strip in

09:08

2005 kamasa control they spent the last

09:10

20 years turning it into a giant Terror

09:12

base from the Israeli perspective my

09:14

assumption is that what they are

09:15

figuring is degrade hamas's military

09:17

capacity such that they cannot be an

09:19

offensive threat to the state of Israel

09:21

and then try to enact some sort of

09:23

military control of the area sufficient

09:25

to prevent any future threat from

09:27

arising from that area I'm sure that

09:29

Israel would love to hand the area over

09:30

to Egypt Egypt says no Egypt doesn't

09:32

want any part of it Israel would love to

09:33

hand it over to Jordan Jordan says no

09:35

Jordan doesn't want any part of it

09:36

Israel's tried to hand it over to the

09:37

Saudis to the UAE to the United States

09:38

to literally anyone no one wants to run

09:41

that area specifically because the

09:42

population is already quite radicalized

09:45

and was radicalized before October 7th

09:47

and so what you're probably going to end

09:48

up with and I said this I think the

09:49

first time I appeared on the show which

09:50

was shortly after October 7th in in this

09:52

context what you're probably going to

09:54

end up with is some form of joint

09:56

military rule in the Gaza Strip in which

09:58

Israel has the intelligence capacity to

10:01

go in and conduct raids in in Terror hot

10:03

beds the same way that they do right now

10:05

for example in the West Bank jday in

10:06

Samaria places like Janine places like

10:08

nablo the IDF is constantly attempting

10:10

to go in and root out Terror cells in

10:13

these particular areas one of the big

10:14

flaws that led to October 7th was the

10:16

fact that Israel had no forces on the

10:18

ground and no actual intelligence

10:19

capability inside the Gaza

10:21

Strip one of the consequences of this

10:24

war has been a lot of very high passions

10:28

on both sides a lot of angry

10:30

disagreements you and your company have

10:32

been at the center of a very uh

10:34

high-profile one at the moment with

10:36

Candice Owens who's now left daily wire

10:39

um was she fired or did she leave of her

10:42

own

10:43

bition I'm not going to speak to this

10:45

topic F at all at all you can't give me

10:50

any uh insight into why she departed no

10:54

hints no nothing I'm not going to speak

10:55

to this C can I ask can I ask why I mean

10:59

you can ask no no I'm can ask why you

11:01

don't want to say anything um again you

11:05

can

11:07

ask I mean I mean I I'm only curious

11:10

because I know what a a staunch defender

11:12

of free speech you are and it would

11:15

surprise me if it had been someone's

11:18

opinions that would make you want to par

11:20

company with them however cont suffice

11:22

to say the only thing I will say is what

11:23

I've said all along with regard to

11:25

Candice or with regard to any of our

11:26

other hosts I am not in hiring and

11:28

firing position with the daily wire I'm

11:30

a co-founder of the daily wire I'm a

11:32

co-owner of the daily wire I'm not

11:33

actually in management Jeremy boring and

11:35

Caleb Robinson are in management

11:37

positions with regard to Candice or

11:39

anyone else and as far as the Free

11:41

Speech situation what I will say is that

11:43

no company has the obligation to

11:45

literally pay anyone the the daily wire

11:48

is a is a publisher it is not a platform

11:51

I've never called for Candace or anyone

11:52

else for that matter to be banned from

11:54

YouTube to be banned from X to be banned

11:56

from any platform that's a different

11:57

story obviously when it it comes to any

12:00

publisher any publisher gets to make

12:01

decisions about what it wishes to uh

12:03

what it wishes to pry and not I mean I'm

12:05

just not going to label this but one

12:06

more point I would make is it's been

12:08

reported extensively that the reason for

12:11

her departure was because her comments

12:13

have been perceived by people at the

12:15

daily wire as

12:18

anti-semitic again I'm I'm not going to

12:20

comment on this Pi okay Rabbi smooy

12:24

would you comment on him because Jeremy

12:26

has actually commented on Rabbi schy

12:27

said I've avoided commenting publicly on

12:29

Rabbi schmi because as far as I can tell

12:31

the man is an attention of the

12:33

highest order is that the general

12:36

position of the company on Mr schi I

12:39

mean that that's my personal position

12:40

for sure I mean I I think that you know

12:43

Rabbi schi happens to be a person with

12:45

whom I agree on some matters related to

12:47

say Middle East policy and uh I I also

12:50

believe that his Devotion to camera and

12:53

notoriety have made him do some

12:54

untethered things in in recent days I

12:57

mean there's a clip I'm just going to

12:58

play it and you can comment or otherwise

13:00

but it was extraordinary to me we've had

13:02

him on this show a few times but I found

13:04

this really quite extraordinary let's

13:05

take a look worm is a day of Celebration

13:08

we feel bad for Candace Owens that she

13:11

lost her job so I figure with her image

13:14

of what Jews are supposed to look like

13:15

why not Val at least validator I am

13:18

dressed up as a Candace Owens Jew now

13:20

this is not a Christian Child this

13:21

Jewish child but if it would be I got my

13:23

Christian blood M spicy delicious I got
