A full biography of Rabbi Landau is available here.

This past Tuesday, May 30, Ilana Dayan a key reporter from Israel’s premier television, Channel 2, interviewed President Barack Obama in the White House. This was President Obama’s opportunity to address the Israeli people directly and explain the positions he’s taken on Iran, the Israeli Arab conflict, and his relationship with Prime Minister Netanyahu. The interview was candid and no punches were pulled. I highly recommend you read a transcript of the interview and also an important op-ed piece penned in response to it by one of Israel’s leading Anglo journalist David Horovitz.
