The Wages of Sin: How Western Cash Fueled the Assault on Israel with Rachel Ehrenfeld, Ph.D.

Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld joins to talk about how taxpayer dollars and private donations have funded the very terrorists that attacked Israel.

Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld is the director of the American Center for Democracy and its Economic Warfare Institute. A native of Israel, she has seen firsthand the devastation the Mideast turmoil has brought to that embattled nation, both through conventional war and the horror of terrorism. She also has extensively studied how western money from the US and its allies — much of it extracted from taxpayers — has ended up lining the pockets of the same fundamentalists who slaughter men, women & children with equal glee. Her research into the economics of international crime & violence have led to the publication of four books on the matter including her latest, The Soros Agenda, in which she traces how both naïveté & malice have led to prominent figures in business, government, and professional activism funding the very fundamentalists, terrorists and cartels that are out to destroy them. Dr. Ehrenfeld joins the program to discuss exactly what is going on in Israel, and how foreign aid and well-intentioned charity feeds brutal jihadist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah all the way up to Al Qaeda and ISIS.
