This week's program was produced in Palestine earlier this week.
 


Welcome to the
Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities



The day before we came back to the US, Dr. Kouloud presented Sandy and Patrick with an exquisite book designed for the Pope.


Sandy and Patrick with Her Excellency Dr. Kouloud Diabes, The Minister of Tourism and
Antiquities of Palestine.


 With only 100 printed, we were honored and humbled to receive such a beautiful rendering of Palestine.

Good Samaritan’s Message of Peace

 

Husney W. Kohen, Priest and Director of the Samaritan's Museum on Mount Gerizim in Samarita, Palestine

 

Our guest is a Samaritan priest who explains that his genealogy reaches back over 162 generations to the Biblical figure of Adam himself. Here you’ll gain a better understanding of the importance of the man known as Abraham, claimed to be the father of the Israelites and the Arabs. We also consider the question of why there is conflict over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem when the real temple perhaps belongs on Mount Gerazim in Samaria, Palestine. And finally, listen to a very special prayer for peace in the Holy Land.

Cable Car on Mount Temptation

Kamel “Kam” Sinofrot, Executive Manager of the Telepherique & Sultan Tourist Center and the Mount Temptation Cable Car in Jericho, Palestine

OK, this sounds like a rather odd factoid, but there really is a cable car in the oldest city in the world that starts below sea level and goes clear up a mountainside, yet the top is still below sea level! The Temptation on the Mount and the Walls of Jericho are featured stops on this unique-in-all-the-world ride in a 10,000 year-old community. Folks, this is where it all started. Don’t miss it!

Room at the Inn

Richard Elias, General Manager of Golden Gate Tours & Travel in Bethlehem, Palestine

The Elias family owns the Bethlehem Star Hotel which is situated on the highest point in this ancient city and features spectacular views of the Church of the Nativity and the birthplace of Jesus Christ. Can you imagine being here during the Christmas holidays? Plus, son Richard offers soup-to-nuts tours of all that the Holy Land has to experience. And whenever you decide to come, plan on making the Star your home for a week while you take a good long drink from the fire hose of cultural, historical, religious and socio-political sights, sounds and tastes this region offers. There will be room for you at the inn.

5 Star in Jericho

Andrea Wrba, General Manager of the InterContinental Hotel in Jericho, Palestine

Only six clicks from the shores of the Dead Sea and sitting at the lowest point on earth there is a spectacular 5 star hotel. Who knew? After running hard for a few days on your tour of the Holy Land, there is no better recovery and rejuvenation than to deeply breathe in the naturally enriched oxygen levels here and bask in the sun during a stay at the luxurious Jericho InterConti

Trust in the Holy Land

Sami Awad, Executive Director of the Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem, Palestine

An engaging conversation with the man who is perhaps the leading peace activist in Palestine. In the Holy Land, forced segregation of people based on race, religion, culture and economics is a severe and omnipresent problem. There is a fortified barrier that runs for miles and miles through the Holy Land that makes the Berlin Wall look like a picket fence. Meet the founder of the Holy Land Trust, an organization dedicated to achieving peace between Palestinians and Israelis through education, understanding and non-violence. Martin Luther King, JFK and Ron Reagan would all be proud.

Breezes: A Genuine Brand

Zein Nakash, Vice President of Marketing and Environment for SuperClubs’ Breezes Resorts

In 2005, one of the celebrated gurus of branding, Duane Knapp, congratulated Sandy on the fact that TravelTalkRADIO.com was “a genuine brand.” Well, we’ve found another genuine brand: Breezes.com. This is a place where a warm, tropical wind blows gently across a Caribbean and South American kingdom of super-inclusive resorts. Oooh, indeed, heaven is a place on earth. Speaking of which, ithe new Panama Breezes in YOUR future? Definitely!
